4 stars Look at Yourself is the third full-length studio album by UK progressive hard rock act Uriah Heep. After the excursion into progressive territory with Salisbury (1971), Uriah Heep returned with a more hard rock oriented album. Look at Yourself still has enough progressive elements to be called a progressive hard rock album in my book though.

The trademark organ and guitar driven hard rock with progressive elements is still the order of the day on Look at Yourself. There are some great hard rock songs on the album. Just take a listen to the title track. One of the most known Uriah Heep songs is probably the 10:36 minute long and progressive July Morning though. The great epic ending to the song with the organ motifs by Ken Hensley and the moog themes played by guest musician Manfred Mann. The musicianship is as always excellent. I really enjoy the vocals and the vocal harmonies which I feel is one of the greatest assets on the album.

Allthough Look at Yourself doesnīt add that much new to Uriah Heepīs sound itīs an excellent album by the band fully deserving a 4 star rating. While Salisbury saw the band experiment with different sounds and styles ( that album is arguably the bandīs most progressive effort), Look at Yourself is more a consolidation that Uriah Heep is first and foremost a hard rock act and then a semi-progressive one.
