3 stars Not what I would describe as progressive but it's here on the archives so let's give this one its dues.

After the tremendous Burn the shift to a smoother, jazz/funky/sleazy style of rock continued. Coverdale and Hughes are superb. The almost incomparable Paice is not so much to the fore as in Burn and that is to be regretted.

The title track retains a quintessential DP sound, and You can't do it Right with the one you want is a great track. Soldier of Fortune unfortunately shares the same title as a simply brilliant Thin Lizzy which is a good as DP's version is mediocre.

Nevertheless, this is an interesting DP III album. Certainly not just for the officianados: ggod but not essential.

obiter | 3/5 |
