Format: Audio CD
Fellow vintage mettlers Deep Purple kept us waiting 6 years for the pretty indifferent Bananas, so 10 years after Sonic Origami, I approached this new Heep studio album with some trepidation.

No worries! This is utterly stonking stuff that compares well with Heep's best material from their 70's heyday!

Throughout, the venerable Mr Box's guitar work is very much to the fore. OK so he's not the fastest guitarist there is, but no-one does that dirty strangled sound better than Mick and he really lets rip on this collection. Some pretty nimble riffs too - notably in the opening (title) track. Other highlights for me and songs which I'm sure will become live Heep classics, are the thumpingly brilliant Book of Lies, the magnificent epic What Kind of God, the strangely dischordant but compelling Angels Walk With You, the essential foot-tapper Ghost of the Ocean and the powerful singalong finale War Child (no relation to the Tull song of the same name).

No dead wood at all. I'm playing this terrific album every day on my drive into work and arrive at my desk with a big grin on my face.

Finally a special mention to Russell Gilbrook who has taken over from Lee Kerslake on the drums. Great performance mate!

Can't wait to see you guys again live!

I'm surprised to be the first to review this on its day of release - I hope there are many more.
Well, it's been 10 long years since a new Uriah Heep CD landed on my doorstep. So, at the end of a hot English summer's day, what a pleasure to just sit in the dark and simply LISTEN to this new CD. I haven't done that to a new CD for long time. Fantastic ! The last Heep CD, Sonic Origami, is also superb but apart from the first 2 tracks lacked enough heaviness that I feel Heep are really about. All corrected here....Mick Box's guitar is at last well upfront, and the whole 'crunch' factor is far greater than possibly anything they have done. It's sad Lee Kerslake had to leave the drumstool but with his arthritis I thought he would have gone some years ago.The whole band excel themselves on this album.
This summer sees a lot of great new CDs from classic rock acts and with more to come: Alice Cooper, Whitesnake, Nazareth, Def Leppard, Journey, Asia, 3 Doors Down, Judas Priest, Glenn Hughes. I have enjoyed all of them so far, but this is the best. It will sell far fewer than Whitesnake or Def Leppard which is a travesty. Go and get this now. The whole album is superb. Well done guys !!

In the 70ies, I 've been a die-hard URIAH HEEP fan. Facing a big deception upon the release of the awful "Conquest", I lost any interest when they got radio friendly with subsequent releases. But here they seem to make over for the 30 years of dinosauric mediocrity. "Wake the Sleeper" is their best album since 1978's "Fallen Angel". Excellent stuff when it comes to songwriting and great musicanship all over! Mick shreads on the wah-wah Les Paul squeals and Phil Lanzon swimply does awsomely Ken Hensley's job. Russel Gilbrook is a solid Lee Kerslake replacement. Trevor Bolder is the faultless spine he always had been since his days with Bowie's SPIDERS FROM MARS. However, I wish they 'd done it with a heavier production when it comes to hammond organ swirls and somebody like John Lawton in the vocals, instead of the indifferent Bernie Shaw. So 5 stars for the effort and the memories reawaken but 3 for the production.
MOTORHEAD, LEAF HOUND, GUNSLINGER, URIAH HEEP... it seems that 2008 is the year of revenge from the old-school. Keep it on!

My advice would be to buy this CD, - Play it as loud as you can three times and then stand in front of a mirror and look at your great big smiling face. A Ten star album from a Ten star British band on top of their league once more. Great Stuff from beginning to end. Fantastic!!

Well, what I have been waiting to see and hear for ten years finally arrived in my mailbox today. Now after four plays, I will say this, WTS from the opening chord grabs you by the b*lls, squeezes them tight and doesn't let go until the last note ends.

Everyone kicks bloody ass on this album from start to finish.

Bernie's vocals really stand out on this album, reaching the stratosphere. Bernie, your vocals have always been powerful and emotive with each album and you have always done the classic Heep songs true justice, but this, you have outdone yourself. I'm proud to see a fellow Canadian fronting my favourite band and showing the world how a true rocker does it.

You would think after playing for over 40 years that Mick wouldn't have any new tricks left up his sleeve, but he just taught the 20 something year olds who think they can play how a true axe master does it. Way to go Mick....

Phil has always been an outstanding keyboard player since joining Heep, but his Hammond playing shines through on this and really fills in superbly with Mick's guitar licks. Of course the songwriting between Mick and Phil is very strong on this album.

Trevor, your bass playing on the album is awesome as always and and the two tracks you wrote "Angels Walk With You" and "War Child" really showcase what a great songwriter you are.

Russell, who would have ever thought that someone could come in and be able to take over where Lee left off. Well mate, you sure filled the drum stool with power, style and substance. I like to think you are a younger Lee but with your own style of drumming. Your contribution to Wake The Sleeper cannot be under estimated, you bring it all together along with Trevor's beautiful bass lines.
