Why has nobody reviewed this yet, if you like Heep and bought most of their collection was this overlooked? Or have you been put off dodgy reviews in the press (Heep never got the press behind them) or did a mate play a odd track once and then put you of Heep for life. Stop. this is a new album following the ground breaking Abominog Heep album. a rock and roll band with a big fat slice of energized British rock. produced and played perfectly . try it.

i have only recently rediscovered heep after thirty years and so have been amazed at all the line up changes and widely different styles they have adopted. This album from the eighties was a pleasant surprise - good driving american style rock with sing along choruses - not the heep i had imagined but great for the in car stereo. Fun

depite a new lease of life,modern crisp clear production and some damn fine tunes this album has always been overlooked,guess the heep name was a hinderance at this point,while the rest of the world was drooling at pyromania this was setting my stereo on fire!!! listen to that bass on stay on top, damn fine.

Head First followed up Heep's 1982 comeback album, Abominog, with the same style as it's predecessor. Kind of like a heavier, flashier version of Foreigner, Head First showed that Uriah Heep has lost nothing when it came to the ability to write good songs and remain relevant.

Now, 30 years later both Abominog and Head First sound a bit dated, but not in a bad way. They sound classic. Head First features one of Heep's best straight ahead Hard Rock songs in, "The Other Side Of Midnight," as well as a couple absolute bursts of high octane energy in, "Red Lights," and, "Weekend Warriors." In fact, the band only stumbles a bit on a couple of the cover songs, namely, "Lonely Nights," and, "Love Is Blind." One cover song that worked brilliantly, however, was, "Stay On Top," a funky, catchy as hell song that should have catapulted them into superstardom in the U.S. but was undermined by a U.K. record company going out of business and a U.S. label that didn't seem to care about the band.

Ultimately, if not for the label problems Head First might have been a big hit - we'll never know for sure. One thing we do know is that this is a good album with some very good songs.
