5 stars If ever their was an album,that was totally overlooked and massively underated "Come Taste The Band" is it.This album is so different to anything Deep Purple had released up to this point,yet it's still powerful yet it has so much style and is very much on the funky side,something blackmoore hated,but bolin add's his trademark and it's a classic.This could be the most powerful funky rock album ever,i find it hard not to like, evey track is brilliant and is totally original.Glenn hughe's is at his all time best his vocal work is so soulful,and coverdale is a brilliant counterweight with his hard rock vocal style.The guitar work of bolin is something else and he is what in the end make's this one of deep purple's all time great albums."Melody" and "You keep on moving",are the best tracks both are totally sublime and seem to just float amongst the clouds,it's beauty and power which is basically what "come taste the band"is all about.An album that was ingnored when first released,as it was deep purple's end,but over the years it's without a doubt become one of purple's great album's and has aged so well it's does'nt sound dated at all,it's aged like a fine wine.
