This album is immaculate I always knew that Deep Purple could launch. None of his previous albums came without a fault (even if minimal), but Burn is ... Perfect! Exeunt Ian Gillian and Roger Glover, enter David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, and the presence of these here is one more point. How they complement the vocals are a highlight for sure, and the other members is commendable in excellent form here, especially Lord, recovering a little of its luster here (because I felt he was kind of left out in last two albums) and also works with the piano and synthesizers.

Starting with the title track (a classic by law) and ending with the psychedelic instrumental "A" 200 this is an album that sums up everything that the band has already shown in previous works while area offers new perspectives. I see that the raw sound of In Rock is less clear here, the blues-rock is still quite captivating, as seen in What's Goin 'on Here and Mistreated slow. The latter consists along with the title track and Sail Away (which may be the icing on the cake) the major highlights of this masterpiece.

5 stars without hesitation. Deep Purple at its best.
