4 stars 8/10

This is certainly a remarkable record, one of his best efforts.

It is clear that the addition of Steve Morse revitalized the sound of Deep Purple, and all the albums released so far have me captivated. It's no different with Rapture of Deep, his latest album to date (they will release a new next month, can not wait). The eleven tracks of this book (I heard the limited edition with a bonus track) prove that this band is not dated and still does to deserve its name.

I really like the way dark as the first track, Money Talks, begins. It reminds me a bit of 21st Century Schizoid Man It's been a long time since I hear it (long before I throw in the discography of the band), and is probably my favorite here. Other highlights for me are the title track, the ballad Clearly Quite Absurd, Back to Black (Please do not confuse with AC / DC) and the wonderful Junkyard Blues, which features an amazing interplay between the Morse's guitars and Ayrey's piano.

4 stars!
