2 stars Unfortunately, the Mark III line-up did not repeat the success of the previous, remarkable album "Burn". "Stormbringer" is more than an average work, focusing on the shorter tracks and some mainstream "arena rock" harmonies typical of certain American bands of the era. The material is pretty much negligable. Other than excellent, fiery heavy rock of the title track (with a memorable Blackmore's weeping guitar solo), very good easy rocking quasi-ballad "The Gypsy" (one of better Coverdale's singing moments in the PURPLE catalogue) and an interesting attempt at funk in "You Can't Do It Right", the album is quite dissapointing. "The Soldier of Fortune"? Give me a break!

PESRONAL RATING: 2,5/5
