2 stars The debut of a band that still endures till now but almost has nothing to do with the original line-up . Uriah must be the band with the most changes of musicians (yes , even Soft Machine) on this site and probably only second to Sabbath in the hard-rock world. Only Box , the guitarist remained, but very indicative , there is at least two line-up on this one album alone. This probably stopped me to like U H to the max ( As I did with Purple , Judas , Sabbath , Rooster etc....) because so many changes are unhealthy and do not create a good climate for creativity , originality , personality etc....

On this album the nucleus Box-Byron-Hensley is already present , but they still have to find their marks ( they will by Salisbury , their next) and this album is very direction-less. Best track is the hit Gypsy ..... and that's it , I'm afraid. Worst track is IMO Melinda. This is a loud album that should be discovered well after the other ones from Heep. For fans only..... Hence two stars.
