1 stars This Deep Purple release is horrifing, it is fruit of Jon Lord's great desire to write music for an orchestra, and to mix classical music with Deep Purple sound: and the result is simply an awful alternation of deep purple improvs and classical pieces without a logical sense in it; the worst aspect of it all is the never reached amalgamation between the band and the orchestra, and so what you hear in the end is simply a chaotic self indulgent mechanical attempt by a hard rock band to sound cute or to demonstrate their "classical roots". In addition to this certainly not good premise, the music is also bad and pretty much boring.

Awful, simply awful: 1 Star.
