2 stars Controversial debut album by one of the most influential bands ever! They're still trying to find themselves. Shades of Deep Purple is full of great songs, but regretfully most of them - covers. Here we can find the first and one of teh biggest hit single of the band - Hush. It's not song of their own, but they had made it famous. Some other famous covers and some original songs. The style is unformed - rock & roll, psychedelic rock, classical music, progressive rock and blues-oriented sound. In my opinion, nothing close to their main genre - hard rock. The sound is almost amateur-classed quality! The vocals by Rod Evans and keyboard works by Jon Lord are solid, but the other instruments are nothing special! 2.5 stars
