4 stars England 1971.

Second album of a band that will become historic. It seems too reductive to define heavy-prog this album. Maybe, in time, the sound, the music of Uriah Heep have defined a style, but here, in this moment in history encapsulated, in full evolution of the music, still you can not do.

Salisbury is an excellent album. Rich of magic.

Of course, if you listen to first track: Bird of Prey, there is little to say, is metal. The great Byron shows us all her vocal talent and artistic genre.

The Park, however, is more sweet, melodic. My brother's dreams once here did soar... Until he died at the hand... Of needless war... Mick Box's guitar and the voice of Byron.

But all of this and all other songs are waiting. Until arriving Salisbury, and everything is great. 16-minute wonders. A Suite which contains all the musical genres possible. A triumphant carousel. A roundabout. A infinity of emotions. Great. Pictorial. Jazz. Blues. Rock Classical music.

I never really thought that I would lose myself... But now I'm going faster than anybody else... Byron sings. Going beyond time and history.

Salisbury is a important albums. Really.
