5 stars First of all I agree with the Reviewer Stephen Lang on saying the album is more Rock Orientated, yes this time they do steer more to that direction but Prog-ness is still in the mist of the album, mainly due to Lord keeping it going a bit, and what wrng with that, most early Metal bands had a keyboard player,bar from SABBATH, and ZEPPELIN.

The album: I have only heard the vinyl version of this album so I don't have a clue about the extra bonus stuff etc.

I will focus on the LP version in this review, Highway Star is the album opener and is a excellent rock n roll track for driving fast!!!, (don't do anything mad on the road), Maybe I'm A Leo, Pictures Of Home are also fantastic tracks, Never Before is short and catchy, Smoke On The Water has probably one of the best guitar playinga and that popular riff and a fantastic rock n roll track, Lazy another good track,but Space Truckin' is one of my favourites and this track just rocks big time, lus it has wailing vocals by IAN GILLAN and I love everything about this track.

This album is more of a ROCK album, but it does ROCK!!

PROGMAN | 5/5 |
