3 stars Good second album for Deep Purple, that marks progress for the band in comparison with the first one. Fewer covers, better guitar solos by Ritchie Blackmore, better original songs, more clear sound - all these news make the album better as whole, than the first one for the band - Shades of Deep Purple. Deep Purple has revealed its potential with some classical and progressive elements, but anything like hard rock is away from the album. This is one of the first progressive albums of all time and that's the importance of it. Typical proto-prog album. It's interesting how one of the pioneers in progressive rock music - Deep Purple - got away very fast from their roots and become one of the greatest hard rock bands. Interesting... I will mark the best song on the album - this is Anthem - Deep Purple's original song with strong classical/progressive influence. The interpretation of River Deep, Mountain High is worth, too! 3 full stars.
