3 stars Wedged in nicely between There's The Rub and Front Page News, New England is a great blend of both albums. Also Laurie Wisefield lending credibility to the WA brand of sound, which is evident all over New England. ' Mother Of Pearl' kicks the album off in typical rocking style and immediately the next song brings the predictable ballad like number back with ' You Rescued me'. Some excellent guitar work from Powell and Wisefield. The alternation of rock and ballads follow again over the next four tracks but the highlight for this album has to be the superb 'Lonely Island'. One thing Wishbone Ash will never do is bore you with too many great guitar solos! The album closes with the accoustically driven short piece ' Candlelight'. The album is a bit short but certainly not lacking in quality. A worthy three and a half stars.
