4 stars 'Look At Yourself' (yes, with the mirror on the sleeve so that the punter can literally look at themselves) shows the band with some of their strongest ever songs. The title cut opens the album and is still in the stage set nearly thirty years later. Driven by the Hammond of Ken Hensley, Mick Box takes quite a back seat on this number, but the 'operatic' backing vocals on the chorus manage to lift this onto another plane. "July Morning" has a long introduction, again dominated by Ken, but the song itself turns into a delicate ballad, again with some great vocals. This album showed a band that while still a hard rock band at heart (listen to closer "Love Machine") were much more 'progressive' than many critics would give them credit for.
