From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I don't know the reason I'm reviewing Purpendicular on this Prog Rock website. There's absolutely nothing Progressive about it. But still a "Must" for serious Rock fans. This is Deep Purple at their best. Check the instrumental in "Cascades" and "Hey Cisco": vintage purple alchemy. The duo Lord/Morse works incredibly as good as it worked (with Blackmore) in early seventies. Paice is travelling finally without handbrake on and Glover pulls out something more then just single-fret notes. The powerful voice of Gillan completes the opera. Every track different yet captivating. Great start (Ted the mechanic), tremendous finale (The Waltz).If you're thinking to check Purple's music, start with Purpendicular: it sounds fresh each time I listen to it.
