4 stars I agree that this album is not among Purple's best but nevertheless it's a much underrated one. Perhaps the lack of long instrumental passages (only 'Rat Bat Blue' and 'Place in Line" contain long organ-soli) is responsible for the rather weak reputation but the song-writing is still great. Little of this album was played live due to the following personnel changes in the band. Only 'Woman from Tokyo' remained a stage- favourite, nowadays they're also performing 'Mary Long'. All in all the album only contains one really weak song (Super Trooper). I can't understand why this track was chosen as a single because it doesn't rock and has no memorable melody. The rest of the album is stronger than everything they made afterwards, no matter whether it was Mark III, Mark IV or the albums from 'Perfect Stranger' on. 'Rat Bat Blue' has the most 'proggy' keyboard-solo D.P. ever made. Not an essential masterpiece but still very strong Purple-stuff.
