Uriah Heep are releasing their anticipated brand new studio album - the 25th in their storied career - which will be titled, appropriately enough, Living The Dream . "We have been together for 47 years and we have seen many bands come and go, so in effect we are Still Living The Dream, so it was the perfect title for the new album, says Uriah Heep guitarist and founding member Mick Box. Famed Canadian engineer, Jay Ruston has been called in to produce the album. Mick continues: We chose Jay because we admire his work with The Winery Dogs, Stone Sour, Black Star Riders, Paul Gilbert, and Europe. Jay has either produced, mixed or both for these bands, and he brought a fresh approach to Heep. He has been marvellous to work with." The band is beyond excited with the material written for the new album, which will include some epic additions to the band s huge catalog of rock staples and looks forward to sharing it with their fans around the world. Uriah Heep debuted in 1970 with the release of one of hard rock s milestones, Very 'eavy... Very 'umble, and have since sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide. They constantly tour the world, playing up to 125 shows a year to 500,000+ fans. The band s live set features the classic tracks from the '70s and is a musical journey from the band's beginnings to the present day. FOR FANS OF: Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, The Who, UFO, Nazareth, W.A.S.P.

The music is great, I’m a Heep fan. The vinyl pressing is very lacking and has a flat sound; no volume, lacks punch and that awesome analog sound that I’m used to. Sounds like they made it from the CD version. Maybe I just got a bad one.

A thunderous rythmn section with power and precision.... check.
Yep Its Heep and they've still got it,its a 5 star album because i love it ( as the ratings say),only time will tell as to
wether its held up as a classic like someof the 70's releases.
However that was then this is now and for my money from 95's 'Sea of Light till now is arguably the longest most consistent period the band has had and once again they have nailed it.
From opener 'Grazed By Heaven' a superb choice as a single to the final track 'Dreams of Yesteryear' there isnt a weak moment. If pushed my favourite would be the 'epic' prog throwback 'Rocks in the Road' while 'Waters Slowin' ' and 'Falling under your Spell' just behind.
The sound quality is superb and you cant help smile at a band comfortable in itself at this stage in their career but still doing justice to the bands heritage..'Appy Day.. well done lads.
I do laugh a bit when Mick Box says 'they've' been together nearly 50 years. No. They haven't. He, Bernie and Phil have been together 32 years, but 50? No. It doesn't matter though. Sure I would love it if it happened to be Hensley and Kerslake there too, and to make a CD this good. But with Lanzon and Shaw, we do VERY well!
Not keen on the "waters flowin" track, veering towards Eagles territory as far as I'm concerned.
Otherwise all good stuff.
The biggest problem I have with the recent Heep albums is the drummer, he may be better than Animal from The Muppets, Cozy Powell and Keith Moon all rolled into one but putting it bluntly, he's too bloody busy!
Give the twin bass and the crash cymbals a BLOODY REST!! - listen to some vintage Heep and play with less bombast and more feeling.
Another couple of classics and a different drummer and would be one of the best in a quite frankly, awesome back catalogue.
So 4 stars it is then.
