4 stars 7.5/10

A sufficient accompaniment to the magnificent Purpendiulcar, Abandon is unfortunately the last album with the late Deep Purple Jon Lord.

But that's nothing that hinders the sound of band, thankfully. As I said in my review of the album prior to entry of Steve Morse brought a freshness to band, a musicality more enjoyable and captivating that I could not find from Here Comes Taste the Band (with exception to the great Masters and Slaves). These marks remain here, and it's no wonder the ability of these gentlemen (Even Morse was not as "new" at the time of this album - he was 44 years old). In particular, I would like to congratulate Ian Gillian for its ability to give strong treble even now passing fifty, as evidenced in the new version of Bloodsucker (and it is amazing that in the original version of the song, the famous Rock In, treble it gives even higher). Of all the musicians I've ever heard, Bobby Kimball of Toto only surpasses him in such capacity at such an advanced age. This song, as well as Seventh Heaven and Watching the Sky, here are my favorite.

4 stars.
