Good album, but must not be your first W.Ash album

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The last and acceptable album from the Mark 1 line-up. As it always happens with most big albums follow-ups rarely live up to the formers' glory. With Argus becoming their biggest seller "Wishbone Four" was a difficult follow-up. Ted Turner would leave after this album only to return for the all instrumental Nouveau Calls album. Laurie Wisefield would replace Ted to continue the twin-lead legacy of WA and to usher a different but another nice era for the band. Martin's voice shows sings of wear and aging although the melody and the singing spirit is very much there. There are gems from the album, "Everybody needs a friend", `Ballad of the Beacon", "Sorrel" and "Sing out the Song". Good music on "So Many things to say" and "Rock and Roll Widow" but the familiar twin-lead guitar attack and harmony is diminished. Besides, most of the songs are slow and long and can wear you down. Album cover is a disappointment. Certainly not an attractive cover for the album with the band looking like a bunch of puny kids.

Wishbone Four, a must for the ardent fan. Wouldn't recommend for the first timer.

"This was my first Wishbone Ash album and my favorite. So Many Things to Say... what a kickoff! If you have ever had woman troubles...The album is a little eclectic, but holds some real gems. Doctor, Ballad of the Beacon, No Easy Road, Sorrel and R&R Widow are all keepers. I love the bass on many of these songs as I play bass. I think it is the guitar heroes who rate this lower. I love it,,,ROCK ON!!!

I am waiting for a re-mix as the CD is mixed terrible - way too low."
Ash fan hates this CD...

"Gawd! This is a miserable CD. My album sounds so much better than this muted, muffled piece of junk. The songs are mediocre except for Sorrel, which is worth the price of the album.

I saw them in concert when this album was released and they were incredible. This album has been in my collection since then and I know every note on it. This CD is an abomination. Get the LP. Record it into your computer, clean it up and burn it to a CD. Don't waste your money on this awful junk."
