Front Page News is the eighth album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It is mostly made up of slower, breezy soft rock ballads with lush vocal harmonies. This style is in marked contrast to the earlier albums, such as Argus, but there were several tracks of this idiom on their previous album, New England. Their following album, No Smoke Without Fire, moves back to a heavier style.
