3 stars Also over-rated but better than its predecessor so it earns 3.5 stars. This is the preiod when Heep did this fantasy thing that pleases so many of us ( also me to a certain extant ) but this was a mask in Heep's case. Sunrise , Blind Eye , Echoes and Tales made it on my compilation of their first six albums . The recent celebration of heep regarding this album is a balloon of warm air but full of emptyness. Sorry for the fans ( i was one too - loooong time ago). This is the classic line-up creative peak and the live album comes next , than the long slide downhill starts. Worth a listen but definitely on the extreme limits of this site .
