Specialists/collaborators reviews

UMUR
"Salisbury" is the 2nd full-length studio album by UK semi-progressive hard rock act Uriah Heep. The album was released through Mercury/Vertigo in January/february 1971 (US/UK release dates respectively) While being a relatively enjoyable release, the debut album "Very 'eavy...Very 'umble (1970)" didn´t exactly do much for me and unfortunately that´s the only Uriah Heep I listened to for many years. "Salisbury" is a totally different creature and I´m glad that I got the opportunity (and took it) to take a listen to this album. The UK and the US releases have different tracklists as "Bird of Prey", the opening track from the UK release, was replaced by "Simon The Bullet Freak" on the US version. I recommend getting either the 1996 remastered CD version or the 2003 expanded deluxe CD version where both songs are included.

The basic organ and guitar driven bluesy hard rock from the debut is still present on "Salisbury", but the sound on "Salisbury" is much more progressive and adds many new elements to Uriah Heep´s style. The two hard rocking tracks "Time To Live" and "High Priestess" are probably the tracks that remind me the most of the debut but the excellent "Bird of Prey", the progressive "The Park", the folky "Lady In Black" and the epic 16:02 minute long title track, which features a 24-piece orchestra, are all very different from the songs on the debut. The band are well playing and I have to give a special mention to lead vocalist David Byron who is quite fantastic in my book. He has a very varied vocal style and can go from powerful hard rocking vocals to softer styled vocals to his trademark high pitched vocals. I mentioned this in my review of the debut album but I´ll mention it again here. Those high pitched vocals must have been one of the main influences on artists like Rob Halford (Judas Priest) and King Diamond (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate).

The sound production is powerful and much better sounding than the sound on the debut.

"Salisbury" has ignited my interest in Uriah Heep like the debut never accomplished and I think it´s an excellent progressive hard rock album. A 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.
AtomicCrimsonRush
"Salisbury" is one of the first great Uriah Heep albums after a slow and steady start with inconsistent albums that always had at least 3 killer tracks. David Byron on vocals, Ken Hensley on keyboards and Mick Box on guitars was the driving force of the band.

It opens with 'Bird of prey' that riffs along with excellent vocals. The music is dynamic and powerful on 'Time to Live' leading to the quiet tranquillity of 'The Park'. The beauty and peace of quiet organ and acoustics with high falsetto vocals are later subjugated by Hensleys' hammering Hammond and Box's monster riff.

'Lady in Black' has a simply awesome proto-metal riff that locks into your brain. The lovely acoustic driven verses are counter balanced by the heavy guitars. The sound is similar to 'Gypsy' and the way it fades to a bass and drum at the end and harmonies is inspired creativity, and then the rest of the music is tracked back in, as if the mixing editor were fiddling with the sound, it's the stuff of innovation.

'High Priestess' is a straight rocker with some great lead guitar on Box's wah-wah pedals.

The final track is 'Salisbury', the monster epic, with huge majestic intro using brass and flute by John Fiddy. The guitars are powerful and drive the song along consistently with one riff after another. The 26 piece orchestra is an inspired touch and it is overwhelmed by crunching Hammond and blazing guitars. It is not as memorable an epic as some others from the 70s, but it is unique to Heep and a definite triumph or a band who opted for shorter tracks on subsequent albums.

The bonus tracks are 'Simon The Bullet Freak' and a single edit of 'High Priestess'. Both bonus tracks are very good rockers and cap off a solid album, showcasing the musicianship of the band. It contains some of the band's best material featuring in many concerts and compilations.

"Salisbury" has a memorable iconic front cover of a tank crushing a flower, that is ironic as the music often reflects the feeling of heavy metal stomping on the flower power generation once and for all. The album comes recommended to those who like hard driving rock with a taste of symphonic orchestral arrangements.
Warthur
Progarchives got it right in categorising this one: "Heavy Prog" is the name of the game. Whilst the brutal guitar work characteristic of heavy metal is more or less absent on this album, Ken Hensley's organ skills and, on the title track, Mr Fiddy's brass and woodwind instruments play a crucial role in keeping the music loud and, where it needs to be, aggressive. Whilst not all of the songs on the album are top-notch - High Priestess, in particular, feels like lightweight filler, though the vocal harmonies are admittedly gorgeous - it deserves credit for managing to establish a heavy and metal-like atmosphere despite eschewing what would eventually be seen as typical metal instrumentation and compositional practices. Four stars.
bonnek
Salisbury is Uriah Heep right at the peak of their game. I always liked them most when they had that gentle melancholy in their music; something which gradually faded out after this album.

All songs collected here are exceptional, very different from one another but building up to a coherent album. The performances are stellar, very tight, inspired and passionate.

Bird of Prey kicks the album into action. Excellent guitar riffing and oh my god those voices. I guess you have to like them but in the high range of hard rock vocals not much compares to David Byron. Apart from the heavy beginning, most of the album is quite soft. The Park and Lady In Black for example are gentle melancholic tunes and very good ones.

The song that will get you on board for this album or not would be the title track. With its extended length and orchestral brass sections it sure is an acquired taste. A taste that took me some time to acquire as well I must admit. But I always liked the melodies and vocals on this song so I persisted and came to like it in the end.

One of Heep's most daring albums, with a brilliant first half and a second side that is a bit of an acquired taste, but I like it!
poslednijat_colobar
The flaws from the first album are fixed here and I can say this is the first album from long series of great albums for Uriah Heep. That's the most progressive record by the band and contains some of the most polished moments in Heep's discography and that makes it on of their bests. There's not a weak song here. Bird of Prey is so appropriate for opening song and then The Park is so heart-breaking ballad with gentle jazz line. The album contains one of the biggest hit singles for Uriah Heep Lady in Black, which will be immortalize as frequent radio sample forever. Here is the greatest one - the epic one - Salisbury, a perfect composition with opera - influenced structure - just incredible - three guitar solos by Box, theatrical voice by Byron, great symphonic arrangement incorporated in this mini rock opera. Perfect!
