From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars considering the time factor ( 43 years now) , and so many other issues while reviewing this category of music from the psychedelic era of the sixties , no one can believe that these bands , with their real talents , and the urge of competing at that time , gave the real path for more generations to grow up and believe that this kind of music can stand for that long , and develop itself every single day . when we review any particular album without knowing or living the right circumstances behind the making of this album , our review will be misleading to others . there was no competition between bands on the late 60's , there was a case ! Drugs , wars , economical crisis , and so many other things Led to what was called as Progressive rock music revolution . Everything in the world has an end , life itself has an end ! but music , without development will also be living only in memories ! Jazz , Blues , classical , pop had to be accepted by new generations , and the idea of Progressing took the right paths because of some guys , talented , well trained , and willing to do anything against the idea of wars . this line - up of Deep Purple was the best in my opinion , Gillan didn't get anything new to the band , we all know that John was behind the creativity of DP , not even Ritchie . this album was only one from thousands at that time of the sixties , i was 16 , and really lucky to live their moments second by second , day by day , year after year , and if i say something now , after 43 years i say it Loud and Clear in front of you all my friends , this album along with many others excellent ones , gave you the right pair of shoes to walk into the Hall of Fame ! <<<<<<<<< a Masterpiece of OUR MUSIC >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
