2 stars I'm not very knowledgeable of the band and just because of that I decided to listen to their first album. What I found? Did not like remakes as "Help" and "Hey Joe". "And the address" even though repetitive is a good song, where individualism of each member stands out ... "Blackmore", "Paice" and "Lord." I choose the song "Love help me (instrumental)" more than the version of 'original'. "Mandrake root" is one of the bests moments of what happens on this record, no doubt. The clash between "Lord" and "Paice" is a magical moment, even better as "Blackmore" decides to show up at the party. It was possible to see the scope of the band through "Shades Of Deep Purple" but it certainly would still be necessary to polish a lot.

Vobiscum | 2/5 |
