5.0 out of 5 stars The resurrection of Classic Heep March 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1994, Uriah Heep experienced a beautiful transformation back into the band they used to be in "Demons and Wizards" days (1972), a return haralded perfectly by the fact that the cover was painted by the same artist who did Demons and Wizards' cover, Roger Dean. Honestly, SoL's is probably my second favorite Uriah Heep cover of all time (perhaps after the "gallery of statues" we see on "Wonderworld", which I just love), so the album is already off to a magnificent start before you've even put the disc into the player. Ten years after the release of SoL, the band still shows no sign of slipping in terms of the quality of their music... I for one am anxiously anticipating their next new album, which word has it will be out this summer (possibly in June).
SoL starts off with a loud and true rocker (making a great first impression for any newby you might happen to loan it to, if the thought of listening to music from the seventies immediately causes them to twitch), the excellent "Against the Odds". Love it... it starts off with an ethereal, quiet, synth introduction, immediately bringing to mind the idea of sunshine... or if you want, given the title of the album, a luminous ocean somehow emanating forth light from its waves... giving the listener a feeling of peaceful serenity that lasts only a few seconds before being broken (though not unwelcomely) by a fast and thunderous guitar solo by the one and only Mick Box. The song that follows from that is just great... awesome lyrics sung by the beautifully-voiced Bernie Shaw ("in the court of kings, I look around; My blood runs cold, I close my eyes"), great, only-Uriah Heep-could-do-this backing vocals, wonderful organ playing courtesy of Phil Lanzon... awesome stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uriah Heep alive and well in the nineties October 16, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Heep's 1995 album, currently being released in limited quantities in the U.S., is being hailed as the best effort since the band's classic days of the early seventies, and with good reason. The current lineup has lots of exeprience and use it to create masterful hard rock. "Mistress of all Time", "Spirit of Freedom" and "Love in Silence" are all stunningly beautiful, exemplifying the kind of power-ballad that this band has always done so well. However, there are a good dose of harder rocking numbers to show the band aren't all light and no shade. Great album. Although the days of Demons and Wizards and The Magician's Birthday are long gone, this is as much as a Heep fan can hope for from the boys in the nineties.

5.0 out of 5 stars This should bring back fans of the old Heep. September 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
On 1995's Sea Of Light [released in US by Spitfire in 99], Uriah Heep went back to try and regain the magic of the early '70s. And here, the band do regain the spirit and quality of their classic albums. There's a bit of everything here for the old Heep fan from the opening metal chords of "Against The Odds" , to the progressive epic ballad "Love In silence", to the brilliant acoustic ballad that closes this disc "Dream On" -- Heep show that they are not 'dinosaurs' of the 70s, but rather a very underrated band that still has lots of new great music to offer to fans of classic rock and HR. Sea Of Light consisting of 12 strong tunes, was the 3rd studio album by the line-up lead by original guitarist Mick Box, keyboardist Phil Lanzon, longtime drummer Lee Kerslake, bassist Trevor Bolder, and the magnificent vocals of Canadian boy Bernie Shaw. If you hadn't bought a Uriah Heep album since the mid 70s -- this is a good one to re-introduce yourself to the band in the 90s! Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Miraculous! July 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After a string of mediocre albums that flopped commercially in the 80s and early 90s, it really looked like Uriah Heep had reached the end of the line by 1994. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, along came "Sea Of Light", one of the best albums of their career. Abandoning the cheesy synths, hair-metal vocals, and MTV-style songwriting that had marred their work over the past decade, and caused all but the most die-hard fans to give up on them, they decided to produce an album that sounded like Uriah Heep again, and the result was astonishing. Huge credit goes to keyboardist Phil Lanzon, who brings back the classic Hammond organ that was Heep's signature sound, and vocalist Bernie Shaw, whose singing takes a quantum leap on this CD (on many tracks, he sounds uncannily like original vocalist David Byron). Some of the band's finest songwriting since "The Magician's Birthday" can be found here, from the power of "Time Of Revelation" and "Universal Wheels", to the grace of "Mistress Of All Time" and "Love In Silence", to the delicate, haunting beauty of "Dream On".

"Sea Of Light" is a triumph, and laid the groundwork for its (arguably even better) follow-up, 1998's "Sonic Origami". A must for all Heepsters, and highly recommended to anyone else.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise!!!!!!! November 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was a welcome surprise when I thought this band was all but gone forever. The music is solid and the musicians are great and suggest that this band will soldier on for a long time. Sonic Orgami is also fantastic. Long live the Heap!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still has the Heep sound!! April 28, 2014
By dklange
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having listened to UH from their first album in 1971 through their seventh alum, Wonderworld in 74, I had not heard anything new from these guys. Only two original members are still in the band, but they still have a great sound and with Bernie Shaw at vocals they really sound solid!! After buying and listening to this album I have bought their last three studio albums also, Sonic Origami, Wake the Sleeper and Into the Wild.... also excellent!! If you liked Uriah Heep in the 70's you need to give these guys a listen!! My favorite track is "Words in the Distance" a good solid rocker!!
