Uriah Heep - Look At Yourself/Demons And Wizards/The Magician’s Birthday reviews

Album Review

Three of the best from hard rock’s proggiest prospect

It’s a cliché, but it’s probably worth repeating, and it goes something like this: back in the early 1970s, four UK bands threatened to straddle the globe as part of a fearsome, quadruple-pronged attack on pop music. Three of them — Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple — went on to do precisely that, filling arenas and kick-starting the careers of a thousand copycats. The fourth, London’s Uriah Heep, somehow disappeared into a patchouli-scented haze and were never seen again. “They’re big in Russia,” someone would say occasionally, as if to remind non‑believers that the band still existed.
