Prog Reviewer
3 stars Uriah Heep's ABOMINOG is their comeback album in the '80s(well, at least the one which received airplay in my area - Windsor/Detroit Canada/USA border radio). If you didn't know this was the Heep on first listen, you could very easily mistake this as a supergroup - sounding somewhere in between Foreigner, Joe Lynn Turner-era Rainbow and later '70s Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Peter Goalby(vocalist) would've fit right in with the aforementioned bands. The track _On The Rebound_ could've been a track written by Russ Ballard. Of note, Ken Hensley(original keyboardist) is not on this album(joined U.S. hard rockers BLACKFOOT). _That's The Way That It Is_ was the big hit on this album. Nothing too progressive on this album, but a pleasant enough hard rock listening experience.
Gooner | 3/5 |
