Wishbone Ash - Power Of Eternity (2007)
The 23rd album from this British band.
Wishbone Ash was a quartet on this album with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
The band had help from four other musicians who provided rhythm guitars, drums, hammond organ and percussion.
Andy Powell is the only remaining member from their great albums in the 1970s. He had just won the rights to the Wishbone Ash name in a High Court trial.
The Wishbone Ash albums released after the 1976 album New England had not been particular good. The band was chasing band wagons and trends. They were also chasing after the good reputation they had won on the Argus album.
When I was listening to this album, it hit me that I should be ashamed of myself, reviewing albums like this one.
The reason is that Power Of Eternity is not an album living up to Wishbone Ash good reputation and name. It is not a terrible bad album. It is just...... indifferent.
The music is pop rock with some hints of reggae, americana and this band's good old days. The quality of the music on this fifty minutes odd album is not good at all. It is a decent album though and that is all.
This is not an album I want to remember this band for, I am afraid.
