URIAH HEEP – Chaos & Colour (2023) *HQ*

URIAH HEEP - Chaos & Colour (2023) - full

‘Chaos & Colour”, the energetic and triumphant 25th studio album from British hard rock legends and progenitors URIAH HEEP, bristles with explosive classic rock guitars, supreme harmonies, and Heep’s famously generous keyboard foundation.
Led by founding member Mick Box, it is no surprise that themes of light, love and, ultimately, positivism are constant through the eleven tracks. Opener “Save Me Tonight” shows the band’s weighty yet blistering chops, whilst “One Nation, One Sun” is a journey of soaring balladic contemplation.
“Fly Like An Eagle” emanates magic and mystery in a way that the late, great Ronnie James Dio would have heartily approved, and “Closer To Your Dreams” is a battle cry for all rockers to get out there and do it, with great vocalist Bernie Shaw imploring that “So many have tried but slipped away/Now it’s time for you to have your say.”

Throughout the album, Shaw’s timeless vocals are expertly supported by keyboardist Phil Lanzon, bassist Dave Rimmer and Box, with Russell Gilbrook on drums rounding out exceptional performances throughout.
Produced at Chapel Studios by Jay Ruston, and engineered by Pieter Rietkirk,
”Chaos & Colour” is a superb album of quality hard rock from the pioneers of the genre who continue to create top class material. Old fans will be reinvigorated whilst new fans will surely find ”Chaos & Colour” an exceptional discovery.

    I dare to say that this is their best album with Shaw on the vocals and their best effort since Wake The Sleeper. Okay. The latter is perhaps better. I don’t know yet. Time will show…
