3 stars The first tracks are okay, but forgetable rock songs that do not show much in the way of song writing the way I see it. However everything from The Spanish Archer to the end are actually very good songs. The Spanish Archer is a really nice hard rock track, with some nice riffing and soloing by Ritchie. Strangeways, starts off with a interesting vocal harmony, then goes into a very exciting hard rock riff, that really caught my attention, The guitar work on this song is also very good, I also like the almost symphonic part in the middle of this song with what sounds like a xylophone in there. The next song Mitzi Dupri is not my favorite blues song by DP, but it is still a very good one, that once again has some wonderfull guitar playing, and it does have that nice heavy blues feel. dead Or Alive is a nice uptempo song, with some excellent keyboards throughout the song by Jon Lord. The one thing missing from this album is any input whatsoever from Ian Paice, you would think he would actually add some nice quick little drum part in there or something of that sort. instead he just bangs away on the drums with almost no variation between songs. A big let down from one of my favorite drummers, but I still do enjoy the last songs enough that I feel this is deserving of a three star.
