Uriah Heep - 'Sonic Origami' (Spitfire) 2 1/2 stars
Mike Reed | USA | 03/02/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"An 'okay' 1999 release by Uriah Heep.Not really so bad,just too generic sounding,I thought.All I can say is that hardcore Heep fans would likely get more out of this CD than I did.Decent cuts here to check out are "I Hear Voices","Perfect Little Heart",the prog-like "In The Moment"(almost sounds like Asia)and the uptempo "Everything In Life".I got to see Uriah Heep play just once,on their 'Different World' tour.Guess they don't tour the states like they once did.I'd still go see them play just to hear the classics.I'm sure I'm not alone on that."

"Occasionally one falls in love with a group. You follow them through their successes, their failures, their 'commercial successes' that are failures, and their 'commercial failures' that are successes. Rarely has the 'HEEP' had their cake and ate it, too. Now is a time when younger people are looking for a source of 'outer inspiration'. If you fall into that 'searching period', this is a must have! Not only do have the pleasure of listening to a band that began with a bang in 1970, but hung-in-there during tough times until they were struck by a bolt inspiration with a big 'I'. Not the ego (i), but that Light from which all good things emerge. Musically and lyrically, this is a very 'High' album. Most of us would do well to listen to the wisdom that it offers. And, I assure you, there couldn't be a more enjoyable way to learn. The essential understanding about "unity vs. division" can be had for 15 bucks and an 'open mind and ear'. Forget anything you might have heard about the HEEP in the past. I met guitarist Mick Box right after they released 'Sea of Light'. If you were to talk to him for 10 minutes, you would understand the statement that "Age is a State of Mind". I think that the 'boys' have been touched by a 'Timeless Energy". The Moody Blues (truly inspired) were in search of 'The Lost Chord'. The HEEP has found IT!"

"Proving that 1995's amazing comeback, "Sea Of Light", was no one-time fluke, 1998's "Sonic Origami" puts forth a convincing case that Heep are not just revitalized, but back at the top of their game. This CD features some of the best songs of their career: songs like "Question", "Change" or "Everything In Life" rank up with anything they've done over the years, but they aren't even the strongest tracks on it; that honor is reserved for the epic, orchestral "The Golden Palace", and the opening track, "Between Two Worlds", dedicated to the memory of their deceased former singer David Byron and bassist Gary Thain; the first time I heard the latter track, I got chills up and down my spine at the resemblance of singer Bernie Shaw's voice to David's, and the sheer emotion of the performances and lyrics.

"Sea Of Light" was their best album since 1977's "Firefly". This is their best since 1973's "Sweet Freedom". An absolute essential."
