Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is a solid hard rock album. I don't think Deep Purple has ever released a turkey in their entire career. Considering what was being passed off as hard rock in the '80s(Cinderella, Warrant, Poison, etc.) this is solid. _Bad Attitude_ is a solid rocker and great kick off for an album. It would not sound out of place on the previous Perfect Strangers. The Spanish Archer is another highlight as it would not sound out of place on Black Sabbath's Born Again album or any Gillan solo effort. The only difference is that you can hear Ritchie Blackmore's guitar all over it. _Mitzi Dupree_ is a bluesy little classic on par with Anyone's Daughter from DP's Fireball. They should put that one in their live repertoire. I can't say this is for fans only as this is worth revisiting. It's not In Rock, Machine Head or Perfect Strangers...but as good as Purpendicular from 1996.
Gooner | 3/5 |
