2 stars Released in the same year as Burn, this album brings a very different Deep Purple on the scene. Hughes and Coverdale had settled in more comfortably and did clearly not want to be bossed around by Blackmore anymore. They brought in some funk and soul in the sound and that must have appalled Blackmore so much that he left Deep Purple soon after its release.

I think he even kept his best songs from this period to himself and relayed them to Rainbow's debut that was released only 6 months after Stormbringer. It all left this Deep Purple album in a poor state with only 3 songs to save it from forgetfulness. Stormbringer, Gypsy and Soldier of Fortune are good songs that stand head and shoulders above the rest of the album.

I'd only recommend this to die-hard fans of Deep Purple's Burn and Rainbow's debut.
