And once again I'm not disappointed ...

Blackmore exits, Bolin enter. This was the only album the band with him, but I say that your work leaves nothing to be desired. Also influences funk / R & B continue weight here. It's weird to give a high rating on the albums with low ratings, but I'm trying to follow my personal opinion, free to be biased.

No music left me as surprised as the medley This Time Around / Owed by G. Recall that the band's albums in their training Mark I always had a medley. But while the basic idea is the same here, composition and melody are vastly different. This Time Around is a great, funky song marked by the distinctive voice of Glenn Hughes and a delightful piano and bass, while Owed by G is a blues-rock instrumental. Another thing: is it just me or others realized that the opening riff Drifter resembles Heartbreaker Led Zeppelin? Parents of heay metal's reciprocity ...

Anyway, this is a good album, the last of an era. Let's see if the return was worth the DP. 4 stars for this work.
