4 stars The homonymous album by Deep Purple is the best one of the 60s for the band. The good news become more and more for Deep Purple. There is only one cover - Lalena, the songwriting and musicianship credits are much better than the previous releases. This would be the last album for Rod Evans and Nick Simper with the band. They were fire after the album. It's strange for me, because of the progress of Deep Purple at that time. On this album Ritchie Blackmore is already proven guitarist. The genre is still the same with the previous two albums with little harder nuance. But it doesn't show what is yet come - the true hard rock period for the band. Probably, because of the line-up changes - the genre of the band had changed dramatically after this album. Being a 1969 release Deep Purple has a strong psychedelic influence. The best songs on the album are Blind and April - the longest and one of the best Deep Purple's compositions. Why Didn't Rosemary contains strong rock & roll structure, while Bird Has Flown revealed big musical potential by the band members. Blind is one of the best ballads made by Deep Purple - contains strong artistic vocals made by Rod Evans and dramatical feelings. April shows the whole band collected in one composition. Classical/rock mixture arranged in mature manner. But after the changes late in the same year, the band have to wait for its first and biggest masterpiece - In Rock one more year. Deep Purple - Deep Purple: 4 stars!
