4 stars "Wonderworld" is a very underrated Uriah Heep album (but it is not very proggressive, however) This albums is a vast improvement over the previous "Sweet Freedom" and it once again proves Ken Hensley's impressive song writing. The title-track is great both lyrically and musically as well as "The Shadows and the Wind" which features an extended a cappella section (that sounds quite a bit like "The Prophet's Song" by Queen, released the year after this) "The Easy Road" is a great piano ballad and "Dreams" is an underrated song that should have been a Uriah Heep classic.

This album has more of grand piano than most Uriah Heep albums and fans of Queen as well as fans of classic 70's rock should check this album out. Proggrock fans however should perhaps start with "Salisbury" or "The Magician's Birthday" instead.
