4 stars Nice album again after the new established Deep Purple with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes after Burn. This is the second and last album made by mark III of Deep Purple. And its wonderful journey in the world of Deep Purple. David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes alternate with each other on vocal duties and this brings in new fascination to the album! I see this album is not much loved here in PA and I really can't find the reason about that. In my opinion, this is one very interesting moment in the history of the band. The musicianship is perfect and all songs are definite classics in the world of hard rock music. Full of funk and soul elements, this album reveal all the variety of hard rock music; this became the reason for the quit of Ritchie Blackmore, who's known as pure hard rock musician; his unhappiness after the album became bigger and bigger, because of the direction the band have taken under the influence of David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes. I have to mention the great style of playing for Ian Paice on drums, again. Here are some of his most completed performances in the entire Deep Purple's career. On Stormbringer, his style is full of uneven saturated tunes and dynamic way of performance. Despite, not being progressive, this album is here in PA and as one of the most innovative albums by Deep Purple it will get what deserves - not less than 4 stars!
