Blue Horizon (2014) Another impulse buy that falls flat, should've researched the new Wishbone Ash prior to downloading, ah well live and learn. Only Andy Powell from the old WA plays on Blues Horizon, trying to sound like they were in their heyday, sorry it fails, bad songs & bad vocals. Rating 2.00.
Catacombs Of The Black Vatican (2014) Back to my comfort zone after a disappointing visit to indie rock with Bearhug - So Gone. BLS playing hard & heavy rock mixed with mellower tracks as Angel of Mercy & Scars. 13 tracks including 2 bonus songs the only one to skip is Shades Of Grey. Rating 3.50.
Dark Side Of The Mule (2014) Live sets, including their own songs and Pink Floyd covers, equivalent of a 3 CD box set, about 290 minutes of live Mule. Enjoyable stuff - rating 4.00.
By A Thread (2009) ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons guests on the opening song Broke Down On The Brazos, great Texas rock. Hard act to follow but GM pull it off with ease, intermixing different musical genres, keeps this album interesting over the 11 tracks. This really is a superb record throughout, deserving the high rating of 4.75.
