4 stars I've been a Deep Purple fan for almost 30 years, and I must say this one is the most underrated of DP albums. I even turn to it more often than "Burn" thse days. This is a mixed bag for Deep Purple, as it sounds a little like Deep Purple, a little like Whitesnake...and a little like Dio-era Rainbow(especially the majestic rock ballads without the sappy lyrics in "Holy Man" and "Soldier Of Fortune", which sound not unlike "Catch The Rainbow" and "Rainbow Eyes" from Rainbow). Great stuff all around for a somewhat eclectic mix. "Gypsy" and "High Ball Shooter" are known in hard rock circles for good reason("High Ball Shooter" getting the remake done several times). "Lady Double Dealer" - one the more chauvinistic tracks recorded by the band is still a rocker nonetheless with a stellar David Coverdale vocal. He means it when he sings: "Get outta my way...I'm gettin' tired of YOU!". A modest 4 stars, this one.
Gooner | 4/5 |
