2 stars After their heydays in the 70's and fading to obscurity in the eighties, with this album Uriah Heep slowely climbed up the ladder of artistic succes again. Taking influences from the eighties rock groups like Iron Maiden, Deep Purple (80's era) and Queensr˙che, UH reaches for a new heavy rock direction. a nice album, with it's up's and downs, it certainly isn't really progressive, but great rock once again.

Hold Your Head Up is the first of three covers, a very good version of Argent's version, no big difference from the original, but really rocking, another cover is When The War Is Over from Cold Chisel, a strong rock ballad, and Lifeline is covered from Bobby & The Midnites (Gratefull Dead origin). The Heep original songs are quite alright, with good singing from Bernie Shaw, often reminiscent of Geoff Tate (Queensr˙che) and Bruce Dickingson (Iron Maiden).

I like this album on occasion, but it is purely 80's rock, and I doubt proggers will really like it. Only for real UH fans, and fans of 80's rock in the Deep Purple (Perfect Strangers, Battle Rages On) style. nice but not progressive.
