3 stars 6/10

While this album does not decay to levels of Perfect Strangers and The House of Blue Light, he certainly has the potential to match the surprisingly great Slaves and Masters. Gillian is back, but honestly I'm tired of his voice. Joe Lynn Turner was a great singer, in my opinion, and it is a shame he is not on vocals again.

This is the kind of album that "neither smells nor stinks." There are songs here deplorable, but none stands out from the other. It's all more of the same. Therefore, there is a moment that I feel honored by the musicianship of the band (with the exception of the powerful organ solos Jon Lord, who are always a highlight nice), nor angry. This is perhaps the most middle of the band's albums released so far, without any highlighting or failure.

Considering everything that was presented, I can only book at The Battle Rages On. .. a rating of three stars. No more, no less. An album on the fence, nor without merit highlight their strengths and by its negative.
