5 stars Uriah Heep at their best, fantastic heavy prog album. One of the greatest album is this genre. Stars with one of the greatest Heep songs ''Sunrise'' fantastic riff fantastic vocals. After that nice rock and roll song ''Spider woman'' witch just makes you move, then brilliant two prog oriented songs ''Blind eye'' and ''Echoes in the dark'' fantastic lyrics great music. The ballad ''Rain'' is one of the finest i've ever heard beautiful piano trough the whole song fantastic lyrics. Just when you get sad they hit you with another rockarolla ''Sweet Lorraine''. The best comes at the end 10 minutes piece ''The Magician's Birthday'' one of the best songs ever written. Great solo by Mick Box.... All in all these is one perfect album it has everything from great prog peaces to great hard rock songs and a perfect ballad!
