4 stars Many have considered this album as true masterpiece of rock. I agree, in a way. Despite famous tracks like "Smoke On The Water" and "Highway Star", my favorite track is "Pictures of Home". Actually, it's not just favorite, I think that this is the best song that DP has ever written. The reason of liking "Pictures of Home" is basically simple: it has great composition and varied in style. Yes, there are parts with similar style but overall this song offers multi-style capitalizing virtuosity of band members. I like especially the segment where Roger Glover gives his bass solo. Other track that has become my all time favorite is "Space Truckin''' which has excellent melody and balanced harmony.

Gatot | 4/5 |
