4 stars Great band from a great era. Ian Gillan, Blackmore and co had a near perfect fit and combination of sounds which IMO came to full force on Machine Head. The legendary 'Smoke On The Water' and the equally fulfilling ' Highway Star' are just two great songs that contribute to the album's hard rock sound. There are comparisons to Bad Company but with more edge, steel, grit and less laid back American Rock. True brit hard rock for sure.' Space Truckin' is another great track and we had another few great albums to go before Gillan's voice began to falter. Machine Head warrants a solid 4 stars.
