20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Uriah Heep

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Uriah Heep wasn't really a band made for singles-and-songles-oriented collections like 20th Century Masters, because they favored sweeping, heavy-prog epics that fit into their equally epic albums. And even in those terms, they were a bit of an acquired taste, since they melded those two excessive genres -- metal and prog -- in a particularly indulgent fashion. 20th Century Masters certainly conveys that accomplishment, and it does contain many fan favorites, which is enough to make this an effective sampler, even if it's unlikely to win many converts.

    Truly musical wizards!

    Uriah Heep has been my favorite band since hearing the heavy , rock pounding rhythms of "GYPSY" on FM radio at age 17. Well, I am 49 years old now, and they have my utmost respect for their talents, displayed so very heavily and humbly on this cd! They grab you by the ear at the start of the songs, take you on a magical journey, and drop you off at the end where you are left with a strange longing to be swept in to the next song! Truly, wizards in the purest sense!

    Uriah Heep

    This is a tremendous album for ANY fan of early heavy/prog rock. This group had it all the heaviest rhythmn section , sweeping guitars and organ and vocals on so many level it was unbelievable.Also see their acoustically driven set recorded 2001 where their subtlety is frightening in it's intensity.
