4 stars I remember buying this album and rushing home to hear it. After the great "Purpendicular" I thought they were now on a roll.

The opening song "Any Fule Kno That" was actually used for their Greatest Hits compilation, not the best song on the album but still a good opener "Bludsucker" is revamped for this album, Iīm not sure why, maybe to let us know Ian Gillan can still hit those high notes? There are some great compositions like"69" and "Seventh Heaven" and my personal favourite "Fingers to the bone", a nice laid back track which sounds like it could be off the album "Purpendicular"

This isnīt one of their best albums, but there are still some great songs on this release, actually the more you listen to it the more it grows on you. At first I gave this album a 2 star rating, but after digging it out again I have decided it is definitely worth 4 stars
