2 stars I used to be fond of Uriah Heep more than two decades back. Impressed by Salisbury, Demons and Wizard, A Magician's Birthday and the likes, I came across Very 'eavy Very 'umble at a stage when I was already accustomed to the sound of Uriah Heep. Heep has been simple and malodious -- far from being complex and really metallic. I found this album harder than the other albums I heard and did not find much sweetness in the melody line. I was disappointed. I did not like Gypsy which I heard long before I got hold of this album, and I did not find any other landmark song here. Uriah Heep did not evolve in the following albums according to the direction this album was claiming-- but this album bridges the band with albums from Abominog in the eighties. But from a historical perspective, I found the album quite a good beginner for a band of that time. This is a collector's item where Uriah Heep sounds like Led Zep to some degree (minus the trade mark voice of Byron).
