4 stars "Machine Head" is another classic by DEEP PURPLE, but this time the album is much stronger and better produced than the largely overrated "In Rock" (I did not listen the whole "Fireball"). The melodic element is more present, while my favorite "Lazy" has an excellent blues/jazzy feel in its infectious boogie rhythm. Of course, "Highway Star" and "Smoke on the Water" are true heavy classics and no matter how many times you listen to them, it still provides evidence of the musical genius. I can still remember when I heard for the first time that famous guitar riff from the latter song, during my elementary school 8th grade graduation party in 1979! Even when listening nowadays, this album sounds very good and fresh. Even if your interest in early 70s hard rock is marginal, you should own this record.
