5 stars An absolutely brilliant addition to Wishbone Ash's esteemed career. From start to finish it delivers with great technicality some of the best guitar playing of the 70's and leaves great opportunity for more improvisation live.

As with all WA great albums it grows as it's listened to more, when you know each not and can appreciate how well arranged it is, that's when you can truly appreciate the genius that is Wishbone Ash. Although the album does not have much in the way of vocal work, what is present is brilliant, sung in a calm majestic style for most of the album and managing to excite when needed.

Highlights from the album are Blowin' Free, The King Will Come and Throw Down the Sword, which seem to be the most requested and appreciated songs from the album that are currently played live. While never known for being catchy you'll find Warrior stuck in your head for days after a first listen.

A brilliant five star album, hands down.
