If Deep Purple had read too much Robert E. Howard, they might have turned into Uriah Heep. Sure, Heep were named after a Dickens character, but we don't recall too many demons and wizards in David Copperfield. The band's fantasy-filled lyrics and operatic prog-metal was often a cheap target for critics. But it's hard to deny the adrenaline-soaked pleasures of rave-up hits such as "Sweet Lorraine," "Easy Living," and "Look at Yourself," which are rounded out here by "Sunrise," "Gypsy," and plenty of other gaudy gems from their early '70s heyday. --Billy Grenier

"Sure it has great songs, but why would they reliece a greatest hits, and leave off "Stealing" or a B side single called "Why" Thank goodness The Clasic Anthology CD have finaly arrived. Uriah Heeps Greatest songs are still missing off the CD such as, "Tales" and "Gypsy Live" 73. I was surpised no songs were taking from the "Live" LP. Oh well, prudcers, what do they know?"

"Two questions that have always, and will always, plague mankind: How can you release a best of Uriah Heep album that omits "Stealin'" and a best of Free that omits "Wishin Well"? This may be a worthy album for the casual Heep fan who's only going to buy one of their albums, but for the more serious listener, "Classic Heep: Anthology" is the one to get. Crucified by the critics but adored by hard rock connoisseurs, Uriah Heep is the Rodney Dangerfield of metal."

"This"best of" album is one of the better compilations from Heep. So many more could have been included but all their music in interchangable meaning another 8 tracks could have replaced these 8 and you could still call it their best! The CD includes the classics "july Morning" "Gypsy""Easy Living""Lady In Black"and "The Wizard" then sprinkle in a lttle"Bird Of Prey""Look At Yourself" complete with a "Sunrise" and you cant ask for a better representation of a bands music.You even can tell the way they moved their music with the times and gave their fans a fresh dose of new Heep music.If you cant own them all, own this one. You wont be disapointed!"
