Gave Uriah Heep's Demons and Wizards a sample on YouTube. Think it sounds interesting enough to go on my wish list. Lately been listening to the new Iron Maiden. It isn't bad, like the previous CD, but I find myself eventually going back to the classic 1980s albums. Wonder if the pattern will be the same for The Final Frontier.
What is it with people and the Demons & Wizards album. Its a good album but the worst album of the David Byron era (9 albums) and even the other eras have better albums.
I think it might be the Easy Livin hit song but its just the album people always say or the only one they know of/heard of and only one they ever bother with.Its grossly overrated.
For early Heep albums Salisbury,Look At Yourself and The Magicians Birthday and even the debut album Very Eavy Very Umble are all far superior.
Anyways for Uriah Heep.
The first 11 albums 1970 Very Eavy Very Umble -1977 Innocent Victim. All have a sound,vibe,style to them that is consistent.
Its with 1978's Fallen Angel that things started to change amd be more different that was 1978 Fallen Angel- 1991 Different World. Some good albums in that time just not really like the other albums though.
With 1995's Sea Of Light is when Heep started going back to their classic sound/style.
Some good early songs
Different style era
Modern but classic style
As for Maiden only heard the new album once don't have an opinion yet.
My favorite Maiden album is 1995's The X Factor.
