5 stars A masterpiece from 70īs in the Hard rock scene!!!

Yes, easily this is my FAVORITE album from the MK II, and this is the first release from them in the studio, wow the album has a great opener Speed King has a heavy riff intro,so many bands in heavy metal nowadays surely were influenced by this one and the whole album.

Each track is a worth add to this album we have various tracks with heavy riffs and others with softs riff but wow a great length on each one. Of course my favorite track here is Child in time (obviously) why? well this song is just amazing, I love the intro and after comes the vocals, and then we have a jam in the guitar solo, so we back to the vocals part and finally a darker outro.

Maybe that was the perfect description for the song, and the rest of the tracks well i just was amazed when i listened the album for the first time. It blew my mind. So if you want to start in the Purpleīs world, iīd recommend to start with this one, but if you dont like a lot the screamings and heavy riffs, so this is not for you at least to start.

If you listen the hard rock trinity ( In rock , Led Zep IV and Paranoid) of the 70īs, Surely you will be enjoying the hard rock genre with some elements in Prog rock genre on it.

Worthy 5/5 starts!!
