4 stars "...Very 'eavy ... Very 'umble" is the bebut album of Uriah Heep one of the best Heavy Prog/ Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal band in the universe! Now this album is an Hard Rock album with Heavy Metal tendencies or, in some moments, a good full Heavy Metal album. At the same time "...Very 'eavy ...Very 'umble" is an album for progsters. And this is the album of "Gypsy" (a true metal hymn) and of the second Heep evergreen "Come Away Melinda", a great acoustic ballad (and an incredible cover). Another noticeable songs are: "Walking In Your Shadow" (a great dark Heavy song) and "Wake Up (Set Your Sights)", a great jazz Rock song with incredible dark atmpsphere!

In general "...Very 'eavy ...Very 'umble" is expression of its tilte. The sound is incredibly heavy, a sort of "Deep Purple In Rock" part 2 but with more Prog moments (see "Wake Up (Set Your Sights) and "Melinda" in primis) but the songs are not so explosive or other: humble part of title! The organ and guitar are in the first plan, as the incredible voice of David Byron, a voice... An instrument.

As historical vision this is only the debut album of Uriah Heep. For me this is one of the most incredible albums of 70's!

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
