CD Reviews

It's 1993...but it's vintage Deep Purple
Micaloneus | the Cosmos | 07/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"
Deep Purple fans are the most spoiled in the world. For some reason, many have badmouthed this album, and yet, from all the reviews, including Amazon, at least half of the songs are loved. Not one, but half a dozen! The title track, Anya, Ramshackle Man, A Twist In The Tale, Nasty Piece Of Work and Solitaire. Also, my favorite, Time To Kill. With so many winners on one album, it really has to be pretty good; even the "filler" such as "Lick it Up," "Talk About Love" and "One Man's Meat" are well above average.

The sound quality is solid, a mix between Perfect Strangers and Slaves & Masters; with good musicianship all around. As it turned out, this became the final album of the MKII "classic" lineup, and so that's reason enough to get this album. A solid entry into the amazing Deep Purple catalogue, and still sounding good after ten plus years.


4 1/2 stars. A must, for any Deep Purple fan.

Deep Purple's best post-reunion album
Matthew Schwarz | Bridgewater, nj United States | 05/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is my favorite of the post-reunion Deep Purple - and it's hard to compare to the 70's days, as it definitely has a more updated, 80's metal sound (although this came out in the 90's - but "90s" metal implies to me power, death/black, grunge, nu-metal, etc. - this is still rock-based, guitar-riffing, metal like Judas Priest, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, etc.) The songs are great, the musicianship is great - you've still got (for the last time) the classic "Machine Head" lineup of Gillan, Glover, Blackmore, Lord, & Paice. If you like classic metal, get it!"
I love this cd

"I love this cd, every song is great. I can't decide which song is my favorite! (All of them) I bought this on cassette when it was released in 1993 and wore the tape out. I'm excited to have it on cd now. The quality of the cd sound is very rich and full, it really fills the room. I just can't say enough about this album! Definatley ranks as one of the top Deep Purple albums for me! I'm a pretty big fan of both Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore, so it goes without saying, I really miss Deep Purple. There will never be any band even close. What a bummer!"
