Wishbone Ash: Argus

Richard Cromelin, Rolling Stone, 17 August 1972

OF THE SCADS of similarities between Wishbone Ash and Yes, the most trivial and accidental (and so most interesting) is the fact that both groups have created third albums (last year's The Yes Album and the brand new Argus) which are boundlessly more appealing and stylistically assured than anything one might have expected from their first two releases.
