|Ask any longtime Heep fan about this record & you will usually get a straight answer. It is either loved or loathed. For different reasons, depending on who was asked in the band for their choice of lead vocalist, they initially found a replacement for John Lawton with ex Trapeze frontman Peter Goalby. Oddly enough, he would eventually join a Hensley-less Heep in 1982. However, back in 1980, settling on ex Lone Star mic man John Sloman instead, apparently now known for vague & cosmetic reasons & not the correct musical choice, his vocals often fall short & incapable of carrying a note through to its end. In particular, even bordering on mumbling & humming in places. Hailed as the next Robert Plant, yet realistically somewhere deep between Glenn Hughes & Stevie Wonder vocally, clearly his vox was wrong for interpreting the bands extensive back catalogue of classics onstage. Still, his merit was perhaps judged too harshly & the songs provided on this album have some depth & character. Th

|The most worthy tunes to the Heep cannon are "Fools" & "Feelings", both being album highlights. "Carry On" & "Won't Have to Wait too Long" are sonically playful but the limits of Sloman's voice are upfront & are not hid within the harmony structure of the song or burried within the mix. Another honorable mention is "It Ain't Easy". A song penned & sung by bassist Trevor Bolder, who oddly enough, sounds somewhat Sloman-esque. After this album, which also marked the bands tenth anniversary, it was an upheaveling time for Heep. Sloman was sacked yet Hensley departed permanantly. Kerslake was already gone as ex Manfred Mann skinsman Chris Slade had duties here, then bolted & three plus year bassist Bolder went on to join with Wishbone Ash. Co founding guitarist Mike Box was now Uriah Heep or rather who was left. Yet, as we all know, that was enough.
