The samples sound great! What do you think?
I think that this group can still bring it,,,eh?
I think the last album and the samples from the new one proove that they can still deliver.
The new video sucks but I really like the song and the totally old-school sound!
This will be an auto buy for me. Uriah Heep are going to be performing not too far from me at a venue that seat 250 people!! I wish I could go, but I won't be able to attend. Anyway, I've been to the venue and I can't even imagine how UH will fit all their equipment on that tiny stage. Bernie Shaw will probably have to stand in one cramped spot and sing...
Rael, I saw them many times with Bernie Shaw over the last 24 years in different venues and they were always excellent!
Not bad. Better than I would have imagined had I not listened to the clip.
Grabbed the CD, like it so far... Would be nice to see them live in Russia again.
Oh don't worry we will! How are the sonics?
Sounds just the way it looks.
OOPS! That's how the previous one sounded...
I didn't expect much from the sonics. The songs are very good.
I hope the vinyl sounds better!
Anybody had a chance to listen to the vinyl? Can anyone confirm if this was made from a high-res source and not heavily compressed like the CD?
It looks like this is a 1 LP release, which is unfortunate because the album is almost 53 minutes long. I hope this sort of practice doesn't become more common. Vinyl can't sound it's best when you cram more than 24 minutes on each side. Manufacturing a 2 LP version wouldn't cost that much more if they're only pressing a few thousand copies at the most.
This is a great release, Just love it!
I have this but haven't got a chance to listen to it yet. How does it compare to the last one? Better?
Good question! I would like to know too.
The LP edition of "Into The Wild" has just been released in North America. I'm disappointed that they decided to cram a 52 minute album over two sides, so I'd like to get some reviews about how it sounds. Can anyone confirm if the vinyl was made from a high-res master that isn't squashed to hell? I hope it doesn't suffer from the same issues as the new Yes album does on vinyl (also due to too much music on each side). Why can't these labels get smart and pony up a little bit more cash to spread these albums over 2 LPs? If they're only making a limited number of them, the cost shouldn't be that much higher.
If the total length is over 40 minutes - fairly common now days - then they should at least spread it over 3 sides like Heaven And Hell did with "The Devil You Know." Two 45RPM record sets would be even better, but being limited to 12 minutes per side might not work if a band does a lot of longer tracks.
On a Heep related note, does anyone know how good or bad the "Wake The Sleeper" LP sounds? I love the album, but the CD sounds horrible due to the usual loudness wars BS. The vinyl addition is like "Into The Wild" - 24+ minutes crammed onto each side.
It's essential to get the japanese version - the japanese bonus track Hard way to learn is absolutely KILLER!
Inquiring minds want to know...
Bumping this thread because I just picked this up yesterday, along with Celebration - first Uriah Heep purchases for me. I'm amazed at the force, dynamics and general energy level these guys are still bringing to the table. "I can see you" ... what a pulverizing riff.
2011 is a great year to be a Heep. Not only the new Heep album is great but the new Ken Hensley album Faster is arguably his best solo release ever and sounds even more old-school Heep! Plus (unlike the new Heep CD) it has a great mastering that simply RAWKS.
Thanks for the Hensley tip. I'll have to check that out - although I'll be knee deep in Heep for awhile with these 2 plus the 5 or so reissues (and wake the sleeper) I just ordered.
Yeah. Listening to "Set Me Free (From Yesterday)" I easily imagine David Byron singing it, and the wah-wah guitar solo is very Mick Box'y. Actually, I like "Faster" more than "Into the Wild". It really sounds like good ol' Heep in places - Ken's magic lives on! And I absolutely agree, the mastering is great.
