In my opinion the best Heep album. Great AOR.

From: Gar Date: August 18, 2003 at 15:45
One of their best, hands down! The band broke up briefly prior to this, but they came back strong. All great songs here, although "On the Rebound" sounds a bit out of place among the other tracks. A little TOO commercial sounding, but a good song nonetheless.

From: Ardian Date: August 19, 2003 at 22:14
Abominog sounds like an AORish version of the early Ozzy, due to Daisley and Kerslake of course. However, it's certainly the heaviest of the three Uriah Heep albums with Goalby on vox. The band had a hit with "That's The Way That It Is", which was also recorded by Graham Bonnet on his "Line Up" LP (1981). The only fault I found here is the Lee's drums. It could have used a thicker and bigger snare sound, like what is heard on "Equator". Overall, a great return of Heep!

They ditch the tired fantasy metal sound for a Foreigner like hard rock style and come up with their best album yet. Box sounds rejuvinated on guitar and the rest of the band turns in equally strong performances. 9/10

From: Uusiolli Date: August 5, 2004 at 22:59
One of my favourites. Too Scared To Run and Sell Your Soul really rocks. Following this album they went to tour, and I went to see them live. My first rock-concert, and what an experience. Someone said this album is AOR, but no, this has much too much edge. 9/10

From: Troy Date: October 15, 2004 at 11:36
This was a good album. Along with Head First, their best. While I liked Equator I did not find that it captured my attention the way this and Head First. I remember my intro was Too Scared To Run and after that I was hooked. Can't say I would class as AOR, but I guess to each their own. I recommend this most out of Uriah Heep's catalogue

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 14, 2006 at 13:51
Probably slightly heavier than the twin album, "Head First". Also, a good comeback release, proclaiming Heep would not go away. Not a classic in rock history, however an enjoyable session that merits repeated listens.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 6, 2016 at 9:03
I dunno but this release strongly reminds me of Foreigner(musically and somehow vocally talking)...the best cuts are the ones inspired by the AOR sound of course(2,3,6 & 7)and add to those tracks 9 & 10...decent album...82/100

From: hair metal again Date: January 26, 2019 at 3:16
fantastic release for URIAH HEEP back in early 80 s and probably their best ever!the decade has changed and now things got heavier and the songwriting more consistent cause commercial success is a goal for the bands !all the songs are excellent ,Mick s guitar better than ever and the musicianship of te highest level!surely Abominog is one of the best of the hard rock scene at the time

Forgot to mention the Argent/Russ Ballard cover sucks, cause even the original sucks
