5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Uriah Heep... through and through!! 5 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
'Sweet Freedom' released in 1973 at the height of their popularity is without doubt the best written, most consistant, best played and best produced album of them all even topping Demons and Wizards in my opinion for shere overall class blowing the previous album 'Magician's Birthday' out of the water and should have set the standard for the future.
It blasts off with 'Dreamer' - a heavy loud song full of Heep delights with about everything that one could want.. a fantasic air guitar opportunity here..
(Wah Wah by the bucket load), a great start quickly followed by the classic Heep favourite 'Stealin' which is still part of their live set today. Wonderful stuff. Next up is 'One Day' a short, sharp brilliant song which leads us into the title track which is about as good as it ever got.. great songwriting and power and I can never resist singing along with the chorus line. Byron on top form here right enough!
'If I had the time' is another belter with Moog, wandering Thain bass lines and those magical multi tracked harmonies and slide guitar so unique to Heep, 'Seven Stars' rocks into the one slower tempo number 'Circus' which is a clever little tune beautifully sung with some nice harmonics from Mick Box and then no sooner has the last note faded away into the distance when we are brought down to earth with the Sledgehammer Hammond intro of the fantasic 'Pilgrim' - loud, Heavy and brilliantly sung and performed by everyone. "Love or War I could not choose, and so both I had to lose..!" What a great line to finish on.
So there you are, nothin' wrong here.. just as it should have been, great songs, great lively performance and a great production. Faultless!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one.. 6 Dec 2008
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
you must buy,better than even the demons album,high praise indeed,if i live to be a 100 i'll never understand why this disc is never included in classic lists from the 70's,foot stompin singles,stealin and sweet freedom,classic rock via pilgrim and if i had the time,the beautiful circus and dreamer which crams every uriah trick in the book into one song,probably the last classic byron album

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Heep, Classic Songs 27 April 2011
By ColinD
Format:Audio CD
A great line up with one of the master bass players and some fantastic song writing.

An album from the end of the golden period where they could do no wrong except in the music press.

It shows that some bands just knew how to play. Sweet Freedom, One Day & Stealin' all on one budget album - What fantastic value for an album that has stood the test of time.

Possible not quite up there with a few others by UH but a 5 star album all the same.

If you like this though, why no also try "into the wild" for a more modern variation of a similar theme. Perhaps Ken Hensley's lyrics are better here but the production values on the modern album are even better.

By Luile
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1973 at the height of their popularity SWEET FREEDOM is without doubt the best written, played, produced and their most solid album of them all maybe even topping the albums generally considered by the fans as their very best: "DEMONS AND WIZARDS" or "WONDERWORLD". The classic and best Uriah Heep line up developed a unique musical languaje between them. The late Gary Thain s' solid and melodical bass lines clearly original but at the same time derivative of John Entwistle s' are so rare today.... and along with Mick Box, unique use of the Wah Wah, with Ken Hensley s' organ trying to be over the top plus Lee Kerslake solid drummin and the late underrated David Byron on vocals, created a band synergy so unique, that today s'version of the band can not match. It is clear to me that URIAH HEEP had a very special and at the same time solid and fragile chemistry between band members based on competition (similar to THE WHO s').

The album opens with a Thain, Box, Kerslake song 'Dreamer' - a heavy loud (and complex), song full of Heep s' fantasic intercharge between the players, specially Mick Box excelentt use of the Wah Wah. A great solid start.

Followed by the classic hit single 'Stealin' which is still part of their live set today. Wonderful stuff.

Next up is 'One Day' a short song that is maybe the least interesting in the album.

The title track comes next which is about as good as it ever got.. great songwriting and power and I can never resist singing along with the chorus line. Byron on top form here right enough!

Followed by Ken Hensley s''If I had the time' is another great showcase for the Moog and organ (courtesy of Mr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but you should know I'm biased 8 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
'cause the first time I listened to them, in 1981, I was 5, and I loved them right from the beginning, plus they're somehow interweaved with happy chilhood memories. Now, at 33 going on 34, I still absolutely adore them and that should count for something. This album is absolutely amazing, I love it, it's a masterpiece, I definately recommend it. :)

To all the Uriah Heep lovers: Do you know where I can find the other version of Stealin', with the somewhat different solo guitar? It's not a live version, I have it on tape, but I can't find it anywhere! I think it was released as single... Thanks!
