COLLABORATOR Heavy Prog & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
4 stars Who'd have thought that rock 'n' roll would stay so strong in an individual's psyche and creativity as it has in many of today's "Rock 'n' roll Grandpas," but it has. The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Daevid Allen, and these guys, the current incarnation of URIAH HEEP, have certainly demonstrated the staying power of rock. The Heep have here delivered an album with polish, grit, and power that not many of the younger up-and-comers can challenge much less top. This is masterful rock 'n' roll by masters of the genre, just enough refreshing and creative subtleties and flourishes to impress with little fluff or slough. Hearing live, living, moving keyboards beneath the music throughout songs is such a refreshing reminder of how it used to be, how music could be. Tight compositions with no wasted moments or riffs. This is a lean, mean, rock music machine. I never thought I'd be rating 70-year old musicians with five star ratings but here we are. This is a near flawless album! Welcome to the Prog Renaissance. Praise be the old masters! While this type of music is no longer my cup of tea, I cannot deny the value of this album to those who like well-polished rock'n'roll. Highly recommended to proggers everywhere to check it out for yourself.

5 stars There is a very old English folk tradition called Morris Dancing, and proponents of this melodeon-based genre say it's not enough to churn out the notes - your music needs something special called "lift". Probably very few people would connect Uriah Heep with Morris Dancing, but "lift" is exactl ... (read more)

4 stars This must be one of the strongest Uriah Heep in theier entire catologue. Produced by Jay Ruston, this album sounds really fresh but extremely heavy. And heavy it is; this is almost heavy metal, but with good taste. The songrwiting is strong with progressive rock-overtones in the longer songs. ... (read more)
