This was the first Uriah Heep album I bought. I knew nothing about Heep and when listening to the album in the shop, I didn’t find it very attracting. But I knew that if I want to seriously deepen my interest into the heavy music of the 70’s, I have to have something by Uriah Heep in my collection. So I bought it and hoped that it’ll grow on me. And, boy, was I right about that! 2 months after buying it, I couldn’t get enough of it. It is so hugely butt-kicking powerful music that it’s just all over you. It’s amazing how this album still gets me stunned every time I listen to it! Every time I find myself thinking that I haven’t really realized how good this album is. No compromise, it starts with a storm right away- “Look At Yourself”- and by the time “Shadows Of Grief” is over, you feel small as an atom. And it’s actually good how the jazzy “What Should Be Done” gives you time to pull yourself together, before you finally get chrushed by the “Love Machine”. It’s a musical knock-out and a definite 5-star to me! If you want to get familiar with the best of Uriah Heep and you don’t know where to start – buy this album!
