Both to the end are Hard Rock. But with an enormous amount of Prog (a lot more obvious for the Wishbone Ash) are lovde from Harder and Progster. I would not know to choose. It be able to help me in this choice? And still, thing thought of it of these two extraordinary band?

 

For always yours, Mandrakeroot.

Two points:

1. Wishbone Ash are NOT what I would call "hard rock." (They are what I'd call "guitar rock," or simply "rock," or even "classic rock.") No power chords, no screaming vocals -- they are really nothing like Deep Purple, or others of the hard rock, pre-metal ilk.Stern Smile

2. Who in the heck are Magnum?Confused Seriously, I've never heard of them -- by their name, they sound like a metal band.

Let the monkey drive.

MAGNUM are more proggy & have one of the best vocalists of any genre!

For those who have not heard of Magnum, listen to 'Wings Of Heaven' & 'Vigilante'! Both ***** albums!

Absolutely no contest.

Magnum are good but Ash are something really special. And Ash aren't hard rock or anything like it. Their early albums are blues influenced prog and their later ones intelligent guitar rock (with the odd minor exception).

Magnum are one of the best hard rock bands, Bob Catley is a awsome singer, you can't beat them

I think I'm gonna go for Magnum, as overall I think they are far more consistent than Wishbone Ash as although 'Argus' is definitely one of my favourite albums, they did a fair few undistinguished (in my opinion, anyway) albums that did nothing for me...Magnum have one of rock's very best vocalists- Bob Catley is one of the most emotional performers in rock music, and you get the sense he's putting everything into the vocal.

That said, I don't see what these bands have in common really anyway...

Out of the two I definitley prefer Wishbone Ash, mainly because I've never been able to get into Magnum (yet).

Wishbone Ash!

I had to vote for them just because of their magnificent album "Argus". A timeless classic.

I shall until,

Wishbone Ash

This must be one of the oldest polls on PAs?

It celebrates it's 1st birthday this week.

Do 'The Stanley' otherwise I'll thrash you with some rhubarb.

Ash every time for me.  Even though they made plenty of mediocre records!  Argus is one of the classics of the early seventies, a record I'm always going to want to play on a more or less regular basis.   Whereas I'll live quite happily without ever hearing a Magnum song again...
