This review is from: Loud Proud and Heavy: the Best of Uriah Heep (Audio CD)
An American critic once famously remarked he'd have to commit suicide if this band made it. Harsh IMHO, and the evidence is here. For a knock-down price a listenable and surprisingly consistent run through some decent tunes, memorable riffs and good vocal performances. Heep - like Wishbone Ash - have suffered because they don't easily fit into any one category. As melodic as country rock in places, riff-heavy elsewhere. The beauty of the three CDs for the price of one is the chance to pick out each style, stack it up, and enjoy it.
