Album Review: Wishbone Ash - Blue Horizon

Wishbone Ash Blue Horizon - Final Cover (Joe Version - 300dpi - LARGEST)

It is hard to believe that Wishbone Ash has been delivering challenging rock & roll since 1969. They’ve gone through some personnel snafus but have always retained a durable and signature twin-guitar attack that has influenced generations of bands. Perennial fixture Andy Powell is still at the helm and his main guitar counterpart at present is Muddy Manninen. Together they sail gracefully through fresh and contemporary material. This album isn’t so much about singles and flash as it is about poetry and reflection. It’s a total listening experience that works best when absorbed whole.

Score: 7 out of 10
