4 stars To me, this is the last of the best Uriah Heep ever. A couple of albums after this one, the band will drift into mediocrity and lose its character. High and Mighty is a very enjoyable album all through -- though it lacks any 'masterpiece' song. Byron's vocals never sounded better. The opening track One Way or Another is based on Box's 'trade-mark' style riff and is very enjoyable. Weep in Silence and Footprints on the snow share similar styles, while Weep in Silence is marked by a deep lead guitar work by Box. Midnight is the best song of this album without any doubt. On side B, I like Woman of the world for its nice rythm and Confessions is one of the best mellow pieces ever written by Hensley. I did not mention the other songs-- but that does not mean they are not good. Overall, this is a must for all Heep collectors.
