4.0 out of 5 stars Last of the Lawton era albums. October 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fallen Angel would be the last of 3 albums by the great John Lawton. Though they did recored a fourth with him, that never saw the light of day yet. He left the band (fired or quit) after that album was just finished up. Hopefully one of these days that album will be released.

Fallen Angel is probably the most commercial album Heep did in the 70's. There are none of the familiar fantasy themed songs at all on this at all (only High and Mighty has that distinction for the 70's albums). All the songs are about love and relationships. That doesn't mean it's not good, it's a great album and I think it's better than it's predecessor "Innocent Victim" though it's not a must half like the bands first 5 albums and "Firefly".

If you have the previous remastered version of Fallen Angel, this is not worth getting. There are no new bonus tracks. The follwing are just rehashes of songs on the original album. They don't sound any different.3. Gimme Love - single b-side

Last Farewell - out-take, previously unreleased

Street Lady - out-take, previously unreleased

Struttin' - out-take, previously unreleased

On to the song reviews.

Woman of the Night - Great opener. One of the harder rocking songs on the album.

Falling in Love. - Good AOR rock song, though short (under 3 minutes)

One More Night - A rockabilly Elvis type song. Good one.

Put Your Lovin on Me - Nice mid tempo rocker with a mix of electric and accoustic guitars.

Come Back to Me. Beautiful and soulful country rock ballad about the breaking up of drummer Lee Kerslake's marriage. One of the best Heep ballads ever.

What 'Ya Say - Heep does disco. If KISS and the Rolling Stones can do disco, I guess Heep can too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated and Seldom Noticed May 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I remember buying this as a bargain bin cut out in the early 80's
and really digging it from the get go, though many were putting it down or ignored this release altogether. More poppy than any preceeding Heep but not in a really sappy way. Sort Of like Rainbow around the time of Down To Earth or Difficult To Cure(though I think this came first!), and that's not shabby company. Overall I like the Jon Lawton era regardless of what anyone else says

4.0 out of 5 stars Untraditional Heep but still good July 24, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fallen Angel is always said to been too light and poppy in its arrangements. Of course when the band discovered some new fame with the mega hit Free Me in 1976's Innocent Victim, it's understandable that they tried to produce some more of that kind of material which the audience had found intresting. Fallen Angel is full of hit songs as one critic said. This album surely has potential to success but it never did. Maybe that's because traditional Heep fans were uncomfortable about those poppy tunes or the record company didn't know how to push the album forward, but Fallen Angel is still an excellent pop/rock album when you forget those "hardness standards". Woman Of The Night and I'm Alive are besides harder than anything on many albums; Wonderworld has its "lights" in The Easy Road and The Shadows And The Wind, Sweet Freedom much slower songs as well and so on. Falling In Love, One More Night and Save It are quality pop tracks with excellent feeling on each of them. Put Your Lovin' On Me is a little bit slower tempo and Come Back To Me Lee Kerslake's emotional ballad. The only not-so-good song here is Whad'ya Say while Love Or Nothing and Fallen Angel are fabolous! Love Or Nothing is like a perfect package where every part is working and the song goes naturally forward. The title track Fallen Angel is very deep in it lyrics and feeling, maybe somehow describing the situation in the band where Kerslake had disagreements with the producer Gerry Bron and the vocalist John Lawton with Ken Hensley. On remastered version there is as much as four bonus tracks which generally aren't as good as those on the original album but especially Cheater is nice addition. Overall Fallen Angel is the best thing Heep did in years 1975-1989 among the Firefly album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fallen Angel rules! September 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Fallen Angel is one of the first Uriah Heep albums I owned and I just love it. "Woman Of The Night" makes this cd a must buy, it is one of Heep's heavier tunes. Really, there are plenty of heavy moments, but in all honesty there are some weak moments. Fallen Angel is probably considered the best of the Lawton-era Heep, and for good reason. I gladly purchased the remaseter cd to replace my old one, and found that the bonus tracks were excellent. In fact "A Right To Live" should have been on the original album, it is a nice heavy rocker. Ditto to the tune "Cheater".

5.0 out of 5 stars back again with more good music August 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I really liked Fallen Angel when I first heard it over 10 years ago, but now -after having experienced hundreds of other rock albums from the 70's alone- this particular Uriah Heep album feels like it suffers from inconsistent songwriting.

The songs that are good are certainly clear winners, though. "Woman of the Night" has a terrific chorus, and as cheesy as it sounds, there's something distinctly magical about the chorus as well. Not sure what it is exactly that triggers such a positive/adventurous reaction out of me, but whatever. The speedy guitar work of "I'm Alive" immediately leading into a guitar solo is a pretty good way to begin ANY song. Hey, there's no law that says a guitar solo HAS to be in the middle and end of a song, right? I really like the chorus in this track as well. Sure, it feels WAY too simplistic like any ol' person could have written such a thing, but whatever.

The sincere vocal melody of "Come Back to Me" makes *this* my favorite song on the entire album. A quality song if there ever was one- anybody who likes Uriah Heep for their more sadder moments will appreciate this one. The "la la la" chants in "Love or Nothing" are pretty melodic and beautiful so I like this track as well. The verse melody is pretty good -though severely dated- too. The title song contains a vocal melody that has actually stuck with me after all these years, not to mention a VERY creepy synth line during the introduction. That part seriously sends chills through my body.

Some of these songs are duds though, such as "Save It". This sounds like some kind of Meat Loaf imitation with country rock influences, and the results are borderline unlistenable thanks in part to Lawton's high-pitched vocal delivery.
