  • Lester from New York City, NyThis is not a typical Wishbone Ash album, in that the songs are more catchy and standard rock. But I love this album, which winds up with 'Wind Up'. But the Title of the album captures the essence of Wishbone Ash. Twin Barrels (as in guitars) Burning. 'Just Testing' is definitely their best album, however.
