3 stars I wasn't that impressed with this album. It marks the arrival of lead singer Ian Gillan (the Screamer) and Roger Glover. This is more of Jon's experiment of blending classical with heavy metal rock. Not the best combination. The only highlight worth listening to is the Third Movement with a rock vs. classical head-to-head battle. Sound of the album is not that good (referring to vinyl, bought it for four bucks). However, it was a bold attempt to wow the crowd at the Royal Albert Hall in that year. It also was a point where DP got screwed by Bill Cosby's US label, Tetragrammaton, and lost a lot of money in the process. The next would be released by Warner Bros.
