1 stars Wishbone Ash was never a truly progressive rock band, but on their first three albums as well as on the great but underrated There's The Rub they surely flirted with prog territory. Not so much on Wishbone Four. Here we have pretty much a straightforward rock 'n' roll album.

The best song here ought to be Ballad Of The Beacon. It is certainly not prog but it is a nice little folky tune with a memorable melody, which is something I cannot say about the rest of the albums tracks. Another decent song is Sorrel. The over eight minutes long Everybody Needs A Friend is not, despite its length, a track with a lot happening in it.

This album is about as interesting as its title and its cover art. In addition to all these criticisms, I think that the album is badly produced. The sound is murky and the instruments don't seem to be in the right places in the mix.

It is very hard to believe that this poor album is wedged in between the two very good ones Argus and There's The Rub.

I could recommend this album only to Wishbone Ash completionists since only they will really enjoy it.
