BAND URIAH HEEP
ALBUM LIVING THE DREAM
ĹABEL FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL
OUT 2018 - Sept 14th
OUR RATING 92/100
Honestly It's not easy when you're writin' your opinions about a band that really changed your perception of music.
LET'S START from the end: the title "LIVING THE DREAM" is the right description of your sensations when you're istening to this album..a masterpiece!
After almost 50 years on the road, with several changes of line up, the band is able not to produce obvious album, but every time to surprise their fans.
The first song GRAZED BY HEAVEN, written by DAVEY RIMMER and J.S. SOTO (the second FRONTIERS artist too), is right now powerful enhanced by amazing three solos by MICK BOX and PHIL LANZON.
All following songs are written by abovementioned BOX and LANZON and the standard is the best ever.
The title track, the fancy TAKE AWAY MY SOUL or KNOCKING AT MY DOOR, with its rhythms initially slowed down.
ROCKS IN THE ROAD is just a classic; over 8 mins where solo parts are intense and inspired.
IT'S ALL BEEN SAID (..really?!), and GOODBYE TO INNOCENCE aren't much better, with the second really rockin'.
The two last shots are FALLING UNDER YOUR SPELL and DREAMS OF YESTERYEAR, full of melody and charming.
ONE OF THE TOP ALBUM OF 2018..FOR US THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT!!
