4 stars 3.8 stars.

Not really a prog album, but nonetheless very strong. Deep Purple is just such a classic band. I mean, way before I was into prog I loved the song Highway Star (I suggest the 5.1 surround edition of this song, it's amazing). It has such a beat and such a sense of perpetual momentum. This album doesn't have any breathtaking tracks (except Highway Star), but it also don't have any remotely weak one either. The entire album has great organ solos (and probably one of the best organ sounds out there) and great guitar solos. Drums are strong, and bass is also strong. The only reason I rate this a 3.8 star album is merely because, in the end, the album is very good, but not anything to rave about. You will most likely enjoy it, but you won't say, "My God, that was amazing!" It just won't happen. However, you will thoroughly enjoy what you hear. Highly recommended, in the end.
