4 stars If this was a straight rock review I would gladly give this cd four stars as it is an excellent rock 'n roll album. As a progressive rock album there is nothing progressive about it as it is pretty standard fare for the times it was released. Nonetheless it does rock out and has some great tunes on it. Glenn Hughes brings a funkier sound to the Purple mix on this album and both he and Coverdale are excellent throughout. The title track is vintage Purple and "Mistreated" is a heart felt blues based rock tune. "You Fool No One" driven by the excellent Purple drummer Ian Paice recalls Creams "I Feel Free" and is an excellent tune featuring some fine Blackmore guitar interludes. "Sail Away" is another favorite of mine, just a well structured song, with a great chorus and some nice interplay between Jon Lord on organ and Blackmore. In my mind this cd is so reflective of the times. Again just an excellent rock album but not for progressive purists and this leads me to my confusion. Four starts means excellent additon to any prog music collection...but it is not a prog album. Three stars then would be underating this as only a good release. It is better than good. What a dilemma...Four stars but not for the prog purist.
