4 stars The time was 1984 and people had been talking for a long time about the legendary mark 2 Deep Purple (Gillan, Blackmore, Lord, Glover and Paice) getting back together again. Fans' dreams were realised with the album Perfect Strangers. Normally comeback albums of great bands dissapoint but this one lived up to the high expectations of the fans. Standout tracks on this album are the 7 minute Knocking At Your Back Door and the title track Perfect Strangers (covered by Dream Theater on the Change of Seasons album). But of all the 8 tracks on this album, there's not one duff track amongst them. It's hard rocking, heavy and exciting music. OK, it's not prog but it's a great album and probably one of the greatest comeback albums of all time.
