4 stars Salisbury is definitely one of Uriah Heep's best classic albums, with some dark soaring rockers like the opener "Bird Of Prey" where David Byron best displays his falsetto vocals. Another highpoint is "The Park", a slow ballad with beautiful soaring harmonies accompanied by a light blend of acoustic guitars and ethereal keyboards. This track stands out from the others on the album, with its gentle psychedelic feel. And the nifty jazzy bridge is a nice touch too. "Lady in Black", is also a very memorable piece, stylishly arranged and catchy with its folky acoustic guitars and ambient harmonies. The album is dominated by the elaborate epic title track. It's a great progressive composition, featuring an orchestra, giving it a grand sound. This allowed the band to spread their progressive wings. Mick Box's playing here is brilliant too. Four solid stars.
