4 stars And in the end, everything changed. I want to say: after this album the music of Deep Purple is not been the same.

Third album of the training Mark I. A beautiful work. The opening tracks: Chasing Shadows and Blind, slip on the blues, on the rhythm (perhaps without great emotion) and the solo by Ritchie Blackmore. Evans manages to create magic. And we makes enchantment.

Is the stupendous ballad Lalena. A song of the great Donovan.

Then comes Fault Line and Blackmore's guitar begins to dialogue with the Lord Hammond. There are The painter, Why Did not Rosemary? and Bird has flown ... But later, immediately after, arriving April. The masterpiece. The poignant farewell. Or a new renaissance. The organ of Lord, the notes acoustic ... there, in the air ... and after the orchestra ...

And the valley's filled with pain And you can't tell me quite why

Evans singing. A real suite. A perfect combination of rock, classical and 60's. Was finishing something. Was starting something.

In the dark of my mind I can see all too fine, but there is nothing to be done when I just can't feel the sun

Was finishing something. Was starting something.

The cover shows a detail of "Triptych of Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch, to which were added to the band members. Grey sky where it should be blue, Grey sky where I should see you? Evans sang, and with good reason ... the cover had to be in color but a printing error had it come out in black and white. But these are only curiosity.

After this album the music of Deep Purple is not been the same.
