3 stars I think, having Coverdale and Hughes on board, has changed a bit on the music style of Deep Purple where this album has "funky" touch. That' okay with me as it gives variety of DP music. Again, I have differing view with many other friends of mine who adored this album from the title track "Stormbringer". Nothing wrong with it but for me the first track that attracted me was "High Ball Shooters". Nothing so special about this track but I really loved the beat and energy. It reminded me to "You Fool No One". Quite a strange taste, isn't ? But don't worry .. that was my first impression about this album when the first time I heard it and as time went by I started liking "Stormbringer" and "Lady Double Dealer". And later . I loved "You Can't Do It Right" - it's truly a simple song with good melody.

Given the band excellent history with good music they have produced, I think no one can deny that this is another good album from the band. You won't find long tracks like Child In Time or Highway Star but . you will find this one is enjoyable.

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
