3 stars In fact this is a fun album, because the band experiments with different styles. In that light, this album is not bad. The songs are not all that bad either, in fact a lot of songs on this albums are Wishbone Ash classices (Ballad of the Beacon, No Easy Road, Doctor, Sorrel). The fun thing is that some songs are so far away from the Wishbone Ash-sound (No Easy Road sounds like Lynyrd Skynyrd meets Rolling Stones) that it brings a smile on my face. If they put their mind to it, these guys can in fact really rock out on short songs.

The problem with this album is, that doesn't ave the same impact as Argus and There's the Rub. I guess Four and Pilgrimage will always be kind of underrated and forgotten. But when you put on Locked In or Front Page News this album sounds really fresh and inspired.

For people who don't know the band, and want to hear a more playful album by this band, please give Four a chance.

Kingsnake | 3/5 |
