Heart of the Matter
4 stars Very often along the years, it has been noted the peculiar (and fundamental) role that the twin lead guitar approach plays in the music of Wishbone Ash. This is also true for this record, although the fact is not so simple, but involves more than one manifestation: the mentioned twins provide not only riffs, leads and solos, but elsewhere you can find them in textures that in another context could be left to synths, or installing ambient and atmospheres, or collaborating with the vocals in setting the appropriately vast space for the expansion of the overall sound by resorting to reverb and the right chord sequences.

All that is here, and is backing a great set of songs. Anything else? Oh yes, Andy Powell is here and sings just great

Heart of the Matter | 4/5 |
