In the Uriah Heep inspired bands, this group has a special place: the UH reminescence begin in the cover, where the band is web covered like David Byron in "Very Eavy Very Umble".
But the reminds to UH are in music too: distinct shades of UH persist through all the songs of this fantastic album.
For some reason that i don't know this is a misterious album: i look in the web to find some information about this album or about the components of the band Life, but i can't find nothing.
The only thing that i can say is that this is the only album of Life, released by Polydor Records in 1974 and, strangely, never reissued.
So this is a vinyl rip (not mine, downloaded from peer to peer some months ago) and probably this is the only chance that you have to listen to this good hard prog act (because collectors drop heavy money for this album's original).
If someone has some information about this curious and misterious record, please post in the comments.
Finally one curiosity that i note: in some of the songs, you can hear birds singing (like in "The Park" from UH's Salisbury). If you hear with attention (but without too...) the final notes of the last song, you'll know how the birds end.
Life, cruel but Life.
