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!
