4 stars Wishbone Ash evolved quicker perhaps than the likes of Camel or Caravan and ' Four' for me although will never rightly so compete with ' Argus', it is undeniably a classic if only for standout songs alone!Their musical directions changed before a lot of other bands in the 70's. Who can deny the wonderful ' Ballad Of The Beacon', in honour of mountains and all trails grand? The stunning but sad ' Everybody Needs A friend'. This is the album where Wishbone Ash perfected ballads and these two in particular standout above the rest. There is no question that the band evolved into a less conceptual outfit with this release but the material is of vintage quality. ' Rock and Roll Widow' the closer on the album set the tone for future albums to come. As I said for standout tracks ' Four' is a must, it will not challenge the first three releases in terms of conceptual offerings but nevertheless an excellent album all the same. A worthy four stars.
