5.0 out of 5 stars Not the cover, the music, 20 Jan. 2011

This review is from: Salisbury (Audio CD)
What is there not to like on this album? When I first purchased it in the late seventies (a few years after release) it was just another good (perhaps excellent) Uriah Heep album.

I just did not realise just how good it was until I had purchased my second CD copy (the first one too scratched, the vinyl long gone) and played it after a 2 year gap. Apart from Demons and The Magicians Birthday, I am not sure that Uriah Heep get better than this.

You want metal - it's here. You want prog rock - its here. You want classical style pieces, just listen to the title track. A nice soft acoustic number, well you get that as well. What more could you want from one CD?

Variety and it improves with age.

How many albums do you have that still sound this good over twenty years after you first listend? Just try this one, as I think it will still be good in another twenty years.

hi colin to answer your last sentence "it does" !!!!
what im getting at here is that you mention how good this album sounds after 20 years and how good it will sound in another 20.well in 2011 this album is now 40 years old !
quite worrying isnt it.all my faves from the early 70s like sabbath ,purple,yes,zep etc,etc are all now around the 40 year mark.
remember when you were younger and a record came on the radio/ from the 40s or 50s how old did they seem my god its now happening to our music,but somehow the album music of the great era(66-76)still sounds good only the production values seem dated(only in a few instances anyway)but with good remastering as these uriah heep cds have been,the music still sounds fresh and relevant.
