Re: What song are you listening to right now?
Uriah Heep - Chaos & Colour (2023)
Well, Mick Box and the team have gone and done it again. As with their previous, Living The Dream; rather than re-invent themselves for the 21st century, they've looked back at their high points of the past 50 years (yes, count them), put them all in a blender and come out with another thunderous album of classic rock. It may take a few listens to find the absolute anthem of the album, but at the moment it's the picking out the glimmers of past glories. There may be nothing new here, but between Save Me Tonight and Closer To Your Dreams this is vintage Heep outpowering bands half their age; luscious melodies and cannily crafted song writing.
I don't know what they're on, but I'd like to know where you get it. bands of this vintage surely shouldn't sound this vital, but since they were among the originators of the genre, then who better to remind us how it should be done?
