5 stars (review from MMA)

The Heeps second album is another great, early Heavy Guitar and Organ/Keyboard driven album. Uriah Heeps ability to come up with great heavy rocking songs is present with the especially epic Bird Of Prey, and the just as strong, Time To Live. They also created two of my favorite softer Heep songs with The Park and the especially epic, chilling and Lady In Black, which is firmly and easily in my top 3 fav Heep songs. The song High Priestess switches between a softer sound and a heavy-ern more rocking sound, which features some great guitar work by the severly underrated Mick Box. The closing sixteen minute song, Salisbury, is unlike any other Uriah Heep song ever, with it's stunningly beautiful, and at times very dark, backing brass ection. The song is a tour-de-force for all the members of the band, with some more great guitar work from Mick Box, and some really strong bass playing from Paul Newton.

All in all, this is a masterpiece from a band that never truly got as much recognition as similar bands in the Heavy Prog vein. Essential.

Sheavy | 5/5 |
