Uriah Heep - Equator mp3 album
Equator was the sixteenth album released by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1985. It marked the studio return of bassist Trevor Bolder, who had rejoined the band for the Head First tour. The band also had a new record label, Portrait Records, a subsidiary of CBS. The tour programme would be Heep's last in the UK until the Wake the Sleeper tour, which began in 2008.
Fortunately, CBS imprint Portrait Records offered the free agents another chance that was sadly squandered with the release of Equator. The Def Leppard knockoff "Rockarama" is a desperate opener that sets a contrived tone for what's to follow on this pop-metal mistake. Some formulaic lyrics ("Bad Blood") and inane power balladry ("Lost One Love") follow, essentially choking the life out of Equator before the fourth track even begins.

Equator was the sixteenth album released by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1985. When the Heep back catalogue was issued on CD in the early 1990s by Castle and then remastered, with bonus tracks, in the mid-to-late 1990s by Essential, Equator was conspicuous by its absence.
