3 stars First, this album is a controversial album amongst Uriah Heep fans and not only them, and second, i really enjoy listening to this album. Maybe Equator is not among the best they done so far but is a good one in my opinion. The AOR sound is more present than on previouses albums but in the end turns to be a good hard rock/AOR album. Depends from what angle do you see this album, from a prog view this is a 2 star album maybe 1 star, but if you listen also to hard and heavy or AOR might be a good one for you, as it for me. Some forte tracks are the opener Rockarama, the heaviest and maybe the best piece from Equator is Heartache City and the funny (lyrical speaking) track from here Skools Burning, the rest are so so. In the main though, for many Heep fans this album did little for Heep's career and stands as one of their worst efforts so far along with Conquest, but to me is a 3 star album, good but non essential. The next albums have more quality songs and has more power maybe because of the line up changes made by the main man of the band Mick Box.
