3 stars I can safely say if this album had Byron in place of Lawton, this would have been yet another hit from Uriah Heep. Its not that Lawton is a bad vocalist--he's good. But never as good as crystal clear Byron. Two major things had changed for the band in this album. First the vocalist, second the dominance of synthesizer. Uriah Heep had been using synth from Look at your self, but never used it as the dominant instrument. In this album, the opening track opens with ARP and you can sense ARP's presence in most tracks in a dominant way. Coupled with the new voice, you'd think you won't see the Uriah Heep you heard before. Three songs-- Sympathy, Firefly and Wiseman-- remain outstanding in the album, while the rest are enjoyable to various degrees. Who needs me sucks. and we could do without DO you know.
