Just Testing passes with Flying (V) Colors

"If you love Wishbone Ash you'll love "Just testing". Worth the price of admission just for their rendition of Master of Disguise. This would have rated 5 stars were it not for "Pay the Price". It just doesn't seem to fit."
The last album of the Mark II lineup

"Just Testing (1980) was the last album of the Mark 2 lineup. Production quality is superb, thanks to Martin Turner (bass, vocals, production). Contains the classic Wishbone Ash signature sound, with a bit of an electronic New Wave twist. Very "tight" musicianship. [After this album, Martin Turner left Ash to do his own production studio work.] Serious Ash fans should have this album, but let's face it, does it really deserve 4 stars compared to all albums ever made by all groups ?"
