4 stars Excellent or only good

After the comeback of the monster Deep Purple in the mid eighties exactly in 1984 with Perfect stranger after a decade of silence, the band want to work on another album with Gillan on voice. So the second album of the '80's was born and they named House of a blue light from 1987. To me this is better than Perfect stranger, the production , the sound the whole album is better than the first DP from the '80's. I might say this is the most accomplish album since Burn from 1974. House of a blue light is more hard rock than prog but is very ok, the guitar of Blackmore is very good as always, the keys of Lord again deed a good job, the voice of Gillan is better than ever, the drums of Paice are wery well done and performed, and finaly but not least the bass of Glover is all over the album. So a very good album in my opinion with outstanding tracks like:The Unwritten Law, Black & White, Strangeways (with a smell of Rainbow on arragements) and maybe the most catchy tune from here Mitzi Dupree, the rest are also good. The album sounds very fresh in comaparassion with the last 2-3 albums, ok between Come taste the band and House of a blue light is 12 years and the music changed a lot in the '80's but Deep Purple was capable to release an actual album then with a lot to offer, musicaly speaking. Finaly i give to this album 4 stars because is among the best DP albums and is excellent in the end.
