1967/ 1976
3 stars 'The Battle Rages On...' is the album of the return of Ian Gillan... But it is another 'Slaves And Masters' only that J.L. Turner was driven kick in the pants and Gillan was forced to return. Hmmm... And this is good? For me no. Gillan, in fact, is no good for Rock and Turner is good for this music. But the story so far.

In other world Gillan ruined the song of 'The Battle Rages On...' because Gillan has a style not suited to these songs.

Said this 'The Battle Rages On' is a great song, with good refrain and pimps synths, as 'Solitaire' is a great 80's Purple's style song. But for the rest is Gillan in songs for J.L. Turner! Not memorable until the end.

But Purple remain one of my preferred bands, 'The Battle Rages On...' or not 'The Battle Rages On...'.

1967/ 1976 | 3/5 |
