2 stars "Innocent Victim" is the second Uriah Heep album to feature John Lawtons's vocals. Earlier tha same year "Firefly" had been released and that albums saw Lawton's debut with Uriah Heep. "Firefly" however was a far better album than this follow up. Most of the songs are straightforward rock songs and some songs even sound like radio friendly pop songs (!) The song "Free Me" even became a big hit and most people recognize it. The only thing here that can interest proggrock fans is "Illusion" and especially the extended "Illusion/Masqerade" that is included as a bonus track on the CD- reissue. It is a mystery that they didn't include this version on the original album. I recommend this album to fans only but I personally wouldn't want to live without "Illusion/Masqerade"
