Time Signature
3 stars "Burn" does not measure up to "In Rock" or "Machine Head", but it is still, or at least should be, a classic Deep Purple album.

In terms of genre stylistics, this album is a quite eclectic one, and I think the band is already moving in the more funky direction that would eventually cause Ritchie Blackmore to leave the band. "Sail Away" and "You Fool No One" have a certain funky drive to them. Other tracks are more bluesy, like "Mistreated", "Might Just Take Your Life", and the boogie rocker "What's Going On Here". The last track ""A" 200" is a spacey, progressive synthesizer-driven instrumental

On a personal note, I should also mention that I don't consider the more funky approach to be a problem, as I like funky music, but I am not sure whether it will appeal as much to progheads as other Deep purple albums might do.

Time Signature | 3/5 |
