4 stars Wishbone Ash Four was a great album but hard to expect another solid release so soon after, especially with a line up change of Laurie Wisefield on vocal and guitar on There's The Rub. In many respects Laurie Wisefield was a very clever addition which helped cement WA's foothold through the turbulent mid to late 70's. Silver Shoes is an unusual start to the album with a slow start and tinkling keys but it eventually gets going after a couple of minutes sharing a great chorus and shifting riffs, trademark Wishbone Ash.' Don't Come Back' is another stereotype rock and roll number but the next song Persephone is a classic ballad like number sharing Wisefield and Martin Turner amongst the credits. Hometown returns to more rock and roll before Lady Jay brings the ballad sound back. ' F.U.B.B closes the album off with arguably the most progressive song on this release. There is a definite consistent sound on There's The Rub and is definitely one of Wish Bone Ashe's strongest studio releases regardless of their change in direction.
