4 stars Classic Uriah Heep album. To be honest, I prefer their debut because of heavy Hammond keyboards and common heavier sound. There they demosntarte all they 're doing good : nice melodies, multi layer vocals, heavy drumming. Still plenty of keyboards,for sure.

But for me this album has the same minus,as all their classic albums: there always are two- three strong tracks, and all other are fillers. I think it's a reason why during all their history critics hated UH. Another reason - their music is simplistic, working more on emotional level, then musicanship high technique standard.

All in all, album is classic example of their music and has it's own aura. But year after year become more historical value,than pleasant one for listening.For sure, the reason of that my point of view could be based on my love to original energetic music. In case of UH, their debut album mas much more interesting for me, there in "Look At Yourself" I hear much more sweety ballads and pop-oriented soft rounded keyboards I hate. So, for sure, it question of taste as well.

I own 2003 expanded de-luxe edition with some bonus tracks. Again, I prefer 2003 Casle re- realise of UH debut album with crystal sound and interesting bonuses. There in "Look at Yourself" re-release sound isn't so perfect, and bonuses mainly consist of boring LP out-takes and B-sides).
