From: Remastered Reason Date: July 27, 2010 at 19:05
Firefly, the first album of the John Lawton era, proved to be a rather exciting record. It is no slouch sonically, though again except for the title track, the band abandoned their lyrical fictional tales. With only eight tracks laid down to oxide, there was no room for duds with a new lead voaclist in tow. Lawton, without the vocal range of Byron, boasts a unique, deeply enriched throat that commands respect from the opening rocker, "The Hanging Tree". "Been Away Too Long", features the range he does possess however, & with it more than adequately satisfies these ears. A turbo charged boogie number done in typical Heep fashion is served up for track three. Closing side A is one of Heep's better ballads, "Wise Man",ranking up there with other vinyl classics, "The Wizard", "Come Back to Me", "The Easy Road", & "Rain". (in no particular order) Side two is also very good with the highlight being the dynamic, progressive yet melodically dressed title track, complete with huge waves of voca

Side two is also very good with the highlight being the dynamic, progressive yet melodically dressed title track, complete with huge waves of vocal moods. With the strength of it alone, Heep were again viable, particularly because it is a fantasy tale, & well, the music is definitely Heep friendly. It could fit nicely between any two of their staple songs of yesteryear, maybe in particular between say "The Wizard" & "Return to Fantasy". Noteably, it would be the debut for ex David Bowie bassist, Trevor Bolder, who, with the exception of a brief absence in the early 80's, has been with Heep to the present day. Unquestionably, it is Heep's best record with Lawton on vox. There would be two more albums within the next 18 months with this lineup & obvious standouts within each but this one from 1977 stands out top to bottom from the others.
