With previous studio outing Wake The Sleeper Uriah Heep gained lots of (well deserved) plaudits. But part of me wasn't quite convinced that it was as miles ahead of the other releases by this line up as suggested in some quarters. I actually prefer Sea Of Light, but that's personal taste I suppose. As great an album as Sleeper is I felt that Heep could probably push the envelope just that little bit more. And this is exactly what they have done with Into The Wild...

The triple tour de force of "Nail On The Head", "I Can See You" and the title track leave you quite breathless. And just as you are expecting an obligatory ballad the mid tempo heavy hammond organ-driven "Money Talk" and the galloping "I'm Ready" let you know that the band are in no mood to take prisoners. There are moments of light and shade, as one would expect with such a talented bunch of musicians. But this is an album dominated by big riffs and catchy choruses.

Much has been made of "new" drummer Russell Gilbraith, and he really is one hell of a drummer. But it should be said that Mike Paxman's superb sparkling-but-live-feel production allows all of the band to shine. Tevor Bolder's bass lines are a delight, bottom-heavy and a perfect fit with the drum monster. Phil Lanzon's keyboards are, as usual, seriously impressive. While Bernie Shaw gives possibly his best vocal performance ever on record. And as for guitarist Mick Box...well, he's Mick. You can almost see his rather infectious grin as you listen to this album. In fact the entire band's enthusiasm is palpable!

This is a VERY capable unit who are in the midst of a purple patch creatively (let's not forget the new songs on "Celebration"). Into The Wild just oozes life, musicianship and confidence.

WOW!! what a disc,the last 3 studio discs(discounting Celebration which was mostly rerecordings) have been superb but this is the business,for the first time in a long time the band have harnessed that undeniable Heep 70's sound,Sonic Origami had a crisp clean modern feel,while Sea Of Light & Wake The Sleeper hinted at the past while focusing on the modern sound,this is different it smoulders with 70's heep sound, be it Mick's ferocious guitar runs or Phil's Hammond organ,while the solid rythmn section underpins everything,best compliment i can pay Russell is that Lee Kerslake isnt missed(i dont say that lightly) while the icing on the cake is the superb vocal performance of Bernie's,possibly his finest on record.

Highlights are the fantastic 'Nail On The Head',which evokes memories of the 'Demons and Wizards/Magicians Birthday/Sweet Freedom' days,while tracks such as 'I Can See You' and 'Believe' are simple but effective rockers

The title track is thunder rock pure and simple while 'Southern Star' is carried along on a monster riff,Bolder's bass propels 'Money Talks to great heights while 'Lost' grinds out another heavy riff,absolute class.

This disc more than any other reinforces Heep's credentials as a top heavy rock band,the emphasis on the ROCK, the softer side of the band has been put in the shade with this disc,although it wouldnt be Heep without a superb ballad and 'Trial of Diamonds is quite magnificent(you can just see the dry ice billowing across the stage).

Which just leaves my favourite track,the acoustic led class of 'Kiss of freedom' which eventually evolves into epic keyboard outro while including some stun guitar from Mr Box,essentially the perfect track.

Easily Heep's best disc in decades,a touchstone to the past and a major pointer to the future

For me Uriah Heep have been one of those bands we know have always been around, but have always been sitting on the horizon just getting on with making music and minding their own business, well boys jump off the horizon and into the foreground, Can't believe how good this album is, as soon as I heard the first track `nail on the head' to the last `kiss of freedom' I was very surprised, no rubbish tracks as the album nears the end, I didn't expect this to be so good.
Solid vocals, great music and catchy tunes make this a brilliant album, when a lot of other rock bands are really struggling to release good material and releasing albums just for the sake of it, it's nice to hear a good one for a change.
A couple of comments `it's like going back to the 70's but the music is up to date, I suppose you could say that about a lot of current rock bands, what's wrong with that? Some of the greatest rock bands and rock songs came from the 70's.
I agree with the good old vintage wine comment though, definitely not corked, but better with age, that sums up the band and this album for me. Go out and buy it! Can't wait for the next release.

A group this long in the tooth should not be making albums as good as this (especially at this tempo).
Nowadays Deep Purple are at their best on the slower tempo numbers, but Uriah Heep are still playing hard driving rock, and still delivering the goods. I thought they would struggle to equal Celebration or Sleeper, but this surpassed all expectations.
Superb - if you like Uriah Heep, buy it, and if you don't check out the samples on You tube.
