2 stars Another great Deep Purple album. Deep Purple albums more than often mainly comprise of rockers, as opposed to deep, intellectual, unique epic songs; however, this album has a few more prog-oriented songs than usual. The title track has fantastic drumming intro and is very high-energy. No No No is a great rocker with subtle elements of prog. Demon's eye is somewhat dark, also with elements of prog. The following track, Anyone's Daughter, is a very beautiful piece. It is almost western/country oriented, with greatly interesting lyrics. I've heard this is a joke track but, oddly, it turns out to be my favourite track. Next is The Mule, which in studio form is bland and boring (though it has good drumming). The live version often has Ian Paice's solos, which are absolutely astounding. Next is Fools which is one of Purple's more prog/psychedelic tunes. And to finish this string of good songs is No One Came, which is a basic Purple tune - typical lyrics, great vocals, high musicianship and just all around fun. Not many artistic or moving songs on this album, though.
