4 stars Just adding my 100 words to the many reviews of this album.

Wishbone Ash is, together with Thin Lizzy, credited for the twin-guitar attack sound. A sound later adopted and perfected by the likes of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Slayer. In other words; the significance of this band cannot be underestimated.

...... besides of that, this is the first time I have ever heard Wishbone Ash and an album from them. I have put this band on my must-hear-more-from list. The music on this album has this strange X-Factor I cannot really describe in words and cannot put my finger on. The music here just sounds great. Full stop.

Sound wise, they reminds me a lot about early Rush (first two albums), Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a bit of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. I am a fan of the latter one so that is a plus in my books.

Quality wise, all songs are great here. But the true suberb song here is The King Will Come. A truly superb riff which the song is built around.

Yes, I fully understand why this album is so revered and I join in with the admirers of this album. A purchase order of more Wishbone Ash albums has been placed.

4 stars
