3 stars This is again not the best album from the band. After having gone through bumpy roads with many line-up changes, finally the band came back to best line-up they have ever made in the 70s - and now happening in 1993. Ritchie Blackmore is in, joining Ian Gillan. The best line-up does not guarantee the best music quality. Time has changed, people have changed as well. This time the band cannot look back to the glory days of "In Rock" which was commercially successful. Nevertheless, this isn't a bad album at all. I even enjoy very much the title track "The Battle Rages On". This track has become my favorite track to wake me up in the morning and elevating my emotion and spirit for the day. It's an excellent track with powerful composition and performance. I keep repeating this track whenever I play this album. It's basically Deep Purple new recording but it has elements of the old or early years when "In Rock" was famous. The other track that I consider worth listening is "Anya" and "Ramshackle Man".

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

Gatot | 3/5 |
