3 stars This album is a very good rock album, with a very slight prog edge. I don't mean to upset the Uriah Heep fans here, but really, this is barely prog. But there is a tinge, so I won't argue against the band's inclusion here.

This album does contain the Uriah Heep song that I've heard the most on the radio, Easy Livin' (I think someone on the site may have gotten their handle from this piece). It is a great, energetic hard rock piece in the Deep purple vein, with some almost proggy breaks. And that's the most memorable song, as well.

Much has been made of the two last tracks, Paradise and The Spell, which run together, as being a prog piece. I don't hear it. The songs are good, but not prog to my ears. And the awkward melding of the songs doesn't qualify either.

But outside of prog, this is a great rock album. I'd give it 4 stars. But here, just 3.

Evolver | 3/5 |
