One year after their self-titled debut appeared in 1970 (entitled VERY 'EAVY VERY 'UMBLE in) England, Uriah Heep struck again with their sophomore effort, LOOK AT YOURSELF. While their debut was a solid slice of blues-based heavy metal, LOOK AT YOURSELF expanded the band's sound, bridging the straight-ahead approach of their early work with the more challenging and progressive work of their next release, SALISBURY.
Highlights include such mega heavies as the album opening title track and the Deep Purple-esque "Love Machine," as well as the surprisingly jazz-inflected "What Should Be Done." Due to it's consistency, many a longtime Heep fan considers LOOK AT YOURSELF to be the band's finest hour.
