I have very fond memories of this album even though the track "Sweet Lorraine" simultaneously blew my then stereo`s speakers when the synthesiser kicked in at the start of the verse!

The band were brought to my attention by one of my school teachers who had a few of Uriah Heeps albums (ahhhh, vinyl gatefolds and mirror covers lol)

At the time Prog Rock was in full swing with Yes being the flag bearers and to have one of these albums tucked under your arm going into the 6th form common room meant you had kudo`s for your intellectual taste.......ha ha ha those were the days!

The tracks dont have a coherent storyline like some classic Prog Rock but it more than made up for any shortcomings with the high quality of the musicianship on display.

David Byron is definitely one of the UK`s great lost and under rated singers and surely deserves a retrospective regarding his voice.
Gary Thain was one of rock musics truly great bass players up there with Andy Fraser and Jack Bruce.

In fact the whole band were top quality including the songwriting talents of Ken Hensley who had a good knack for powerful and sensitive rock music.

All I can really say is I highly recommend this great eriod piece to anyone who likes to turn the lights down low, light the candles and disappear into a fantasy world of Warlocks, Demons, Wizards and tune into some seriously good songs.

`Heep` were riding high on their crest of a wave Called `Demons and Wizards`touring everywhere then getting the call album 5 must get recorded a mere six months later, well the gauntlet was thrown down and `Magicians Birthday` was as the remaining members say was too quickly cut and released..Rushed it was but Demons 2 it is almost! with five tracks written by Ken Hensley the other three including the ten minute title track group compositions all turned out well . what I like most is `Robert M Corich` remasterer and vault tape detective! has once again done himself proud by digging out an extra NINE out takes. ,which to listeners like me are unmissable.There is even a rumour that the original album was to have been a double. It is now!!

This is Uriah Heep at their best! "The Magician's Birthday" may not be as heavy as its prodecessor "Demons And Wizards", but it's equally good if not even better! From the first note of the opening track "Sunrise" you understand that there is a magical feeling in this album. The quality of the songs is just outstanding! Don't expect to hear anything that sounds like Deep Purple here... This is masterfully crafted art rock! The album surely has its harder moments but most of it moves to a more melodic direction with an amazing use of hammond, piano, acoustic and electric guitars and the best vocals that David Byron ever recorded. "The Magician's Birthday" is definitely not the heaviest album of Uriah Heep, but from an artistic point of view this one has to be their finest!

Although like all Heep albums, it grows on you, this one is not as good as their first 3 nor Demons and Wizards.

There is some good keyboard work especially on the title track but overall it is disappointing.

If you already own the above albums then you may want to buy this one. Otherwise buy the others first.

A very underrated rock band. They produced some excellent albums in the early 1970's, and my Uriah Heep albums sat comfortably next to my Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin albums. "Magician's Birthday" was my introduction to the band, and has remained my favourite Uriah Heep album to this day (followed by "Demons & Wizards", and "Sweet Freedom"). The song writing is superb, with no weak tracks (if you ignore the bonus tracks), and David Byron's vocals are brilliant. The title track is a 10 minute epic. "Demons & Wizards" was their first great album. Their next album was "Magician's Birthday" and it was, in my opinion, the pinnacle of their albums. If you enjoy 1970's rock - and what a decade it was for rock music - then you must buy this album, and play "Sunrise" at full volume. Buy "Demons and Wizards" too. You will not be disappointed.......

Quality follow up to demons and wizards,possibly should have taken a break and polished up the songs but it was always going to be hard to follow a classic like demons,still found time to record arguably one of their greatest ever songs 'tales',this cd is worth the price for that track alone.Constant touring and rock n roll lifestyles would soon take their toll
