3 stars First off, this is not progressive rock.

What it is is fairly decent, competent hard rock. There is the usual hard rock with bluesy influence, characteristic of Deep Purple. It is a step up from the previous studio effort Stormbringer, and even better than Burn, in my opinion. Actually, I'd say it is the most enjoyable album of theirs in the period between Machine Head and Perfect Strangers.

Ritchie Blackmore is not on here, having left to form Rainbow. Blues-rock guitarist Tommy Bolin takes over, and does a good job. He even sings some. Otherwise, the album features the gutsy vocals of David Coverdale, strong drumming by Ian Paice, and solid keyboard playing of Jon Lord.
