3 stars This is a pleasent surprise! Burn is one of the best Deep Purple records and a highlight from the classic hard rock period. All songs are acceptable, the most are good. The song burn however is a masterpiece, one of the best the band ever produced. It has it all: A great guitar riff, perfect vocals and an emotionally touching vocal part ('you know we had no timeeeeee'). Also the lyrics are motivating to get into the song. A fast en good begin for a hard record.

Their are a few things this record does not have. The organs don't sound as filthy anymore as on in Rock. The guitars are well aranged and never totally psyco as on Made in Japan. The vocals are very good, but not as screaming in desparation as on In Rock. In summary, Burn sounds a bit clean.

A very pleasent surprise is to be found on 'A 200', wich is actually one of the most progressive compositions Deep Purple ever made. It is a bit different from the rest of the album but it's realy good. Great guitar solo's and keyboard parts.

I'll give this record a 3 star rating, for it's good but not essential for progressive rock. It is essential for hard rock and advanced rock'n roll though!
