3 stars Revisiting the Uriah Heep catalogue and Wonderworld has always been a kind of loner of an album. It is not weaker than it's predecessor Sweet Freedom and contains a lighter edge and mood to the album. ' Wonderworld' the opening number gets the album off to a great start. In fact the first half of the album is pretty darn good, after that the inconsistencies begin to creep in. This may well have had a lot to do with the dischord within the band, the spiralling downward slide of both Thain and Byron from health point of views. Hensley's dominance perhaps along with Box and Kerslake's input remain the cement within the mix.' The Shadows and the Wind' is a classic UH piece and also the Hensley written ' The Easy Road'. ' Dreams' the closer is also a great rocker and the various bonus tracks on the master release shed some more light to this often unfairly criticised album.
