4 stars I remember buying this album and rushing home to hear it. After the great "Purpendicular" I thought they were now on a roll.

The opening song "Any Fule Kno That" was actually used for their Greatest Hits compilation, not the best song on the album but still a good opener "Bludsucker" is revamped for this album, Iīm not sure why, maybe to let us know Ian Gillan can still hit those high notes? There are some great compositions like"69" and "Seventh Heaven" and my personal favourite "Fingers to the bone", a nice laid back track which sounds like it could be off the album "Purpendicular"

This isnīt one of their best albums, but there are still some great songs on this release, actually the more you listen to it the more it grows on you. At first I gave this album a 2 star rating, but after digging it out again I have decided it is definitely worth 4 stars

1 stars Since 1969, we were not really used that the Purple delivered a lot of prog moments in a row. In "Abandon", there are eleven of them. Each break between the numbers. Between them, awful heavy metal songs (not even hard rock) for the huge majority of the tracks.

Some of them sound like very poor Black Sabbath (probably the line-up with Gillan in the "Born Again" album). "Seventh Heaven" is a good example to illustrate this. Gillan seems bored to death on this effort (listen to "Watching The Sky"). "Almost Human" is almost good. Same for "Don't Make Me Happy" which is a bluesy rock song with a great guitar play from Morse.

"Fingers To The Bone" is an insipid rock ballad. "Jack Ruby", "She Was" and "Evil Louie" are probably the worse tracks on the album, although they could probably compete for the all time lows from the Purple (all Marks).

The Purple even released a remake of "Bloodsucker", renamed "Bludsucker". It was the only weak track on "In Rock", being one of the heavier. On "Abandon" it sounds almost fresh and light !

The sole real good number (yes, there is one) is "69" : back to the typical hard-rock song with great rythm and a very good Gillan on the vocals. It is, by far, the worst Deep Purple album with Gillan on the vocals. This "work" is only equalled by the infamous "Slaves & Masters".

Same crap, same rating : one star.

P.S. : What annoys me a lot with this effort, is that it will the last studio one from Jon Lord with the Purple. He was a founding memebr and never left the band while active as such. He will retire from the Purple in 2002.

Jon, you have been wonderful. During so many years you have filled my musical dreams. I was lucky to see you three times on stage. I will (can) NEVER forget you. Thanks for all these fabulous keys moments.

2 stars Don't make me happy more often please

The mark 7 line up was rapidly becoming the most stable, and undoubtedly the happiest, of all the versions of Deep Purple. In 1997, they returned to the studio in Florida to record this the their second album. Once again, the song-writing credits are democratically distributed, all the songs being written by "Deep Purple" with the exception of the closing reworking of "Bloodsucker" (subtly renamed "Bludsucker") which is credited all five members of the mark 2 band. The album is self produced by "Deep Purple", although interestingly Roger Glover receives his own additional name check for these duties.

The opening "Any fule know that" is a rather ordinary funky number with the Aerosmith style semi-rapped vocals which have become a feature of at least one track on recent albums. The song is certainly no match for some of the wonderful introductory songs which have adorned previous albums.

"Don't make me happy" is actually the first track here to do just that. The song is a bluesy number whose lighter backing is exploited by Ian Gillan. The louder choruses are followed by some fine organ backed lead guitar.

"Seventh heaven" and the following "Watching the sky" see the band putting slightly more effort into the arrangements, but overall the songs feel underdeveloped in terms of both song writing and performance. While it might be wishful thinking to look for another "Child in time", there is nothing here to match even the likes of "Sometimes I feel like screaming" from the previous album. "Fingers to the bone" probably comes closes to the latter song, being a surprisingly reflective, mainly acoustic number.

There is some frankly poor material here, "She was" being an uncharacteristically messy and unfocused number, and "Whatsername" being unworthy of any Deep Purple album. Thankfully, such dips are still rare and while the album as a whole is far from a classic, it is an adequate Deep Purple release.

Although Steve Morse adds regular guitar interludes throughout the album, these are less obvious than on the previous "Purpendicular", where the band appeared to have a point to prove. Likewise, it seems that an extra effort was made on "Purpendicular" to come up with some really strong material, "Abandon" having a more run of the mill feel overall.

The main significance of this album in terms of the band's history is that it marks the swansong of founding member Jon Lord.

3 stars Deep Purple has been around for decades and through this "Abandon" album they still rock! This album is very good in composition and performance. The key attraction for me is Steve Morse guitar style which sounds different than any other guitar players Deep Purple has ever had. This album provides the music themes where the riffs are provided by guitar power chords instead of typical riffs like Deep Purple early albums. The existence of Steve Morse and the fact that members getting older have made the music of Deep Purple evolved in this kind of music.

The opening track "Any Fule Kno That" is a good song with interesting groove combined with riffs. The music sounds cool with upbeat tempo presented in relatively high energy. Guitar and organ demonstrate good combination throughout the song. The music flows naturally to next track "Almost Human" in relatively the same tempo. The third track "Don't Male Me Happy" is a nice song that reminds me to "When A Blind Man Cries" song. This has a good blues style - so it's mellow.

In "Watching The Sky" there is a good attempt by Ian Gillan who tries to deliver his high register notes but Steve Morse' guitar solo covers the singing at high register notes. "Jack Ruby" is an excellent song with great guitar solo followed with organ solo. Through this song Gillan delivers his high register notes - and he does it really well. The next song "Fingers To The Bone" is also another excellent track. Jon Lord gives his stunning organ solo after Steve Morse' guitar solo.

As far as musical compositions, this album is very good with its song-orientated music, heavily centered around vocal line. The music riffs are different with early music of the band while the guitar solo does not seem to match with original style of Deep Purple. However, it creates another experience that makes this album is so interesting. There is no such thing as bad track in this album. The variation of songs does not differ from one song to another. Surprisingly, it does not jeopardize the whole nuance of the music. Keep on rockin' .!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

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.

2 stars A quite poor album.

4 stars Abandon (or A Band On as it can be interpreted as well) is the second album from the ongoing Steve Morse era of Deep Purple.
