3 stars 3.9 ACTUALLY

this might be called "deep purple plays Jon lord's ideas" as all the orchestral tracks were composed by him, with collaboration of Ian Gillan's lyrics on second movement.

this is not the bes combination of classical music and rock. but it's a nice attempt. the songs are pleasant, though the sound quelity is not that good.

HIGHLIGHTS: second movement, because its nice maleody and the beatiful part in wich Gillan sings. NICE SONG. and Third mivement, it is an interesting Rock band v.s orchesta theme.

*PD*: aftter all, this is an underrated album, just like DP effort before "in Rock" , wich, in my opinion, is overrated.

Progressive! | 3/5 |
