Stunning. And I'm not just saying that!

"I have been a devoted Deep Purple fan for 30 years, but I tell it like it is. Trust me when I say that this live performance, recorded mostly in October 1993 in Stuttgart, Germany, is absolutely stunning. After countless listenings in recent years, I never tire of the dramatic power and delicate nuance brought forth with such virtuosity by Blackmore, Gillan, Lord, Glover and Paice. The whole atmosphere of the recording is so encompassing that it makes me feel as if I'm standing wide-eyed on stage with the band. Given the exceptional performance, flawless sound quality, and historical significance of this scintillating concert (being one of Blackmore's last with Purple), this CD is simply essential."

"This is the first DP release I've ever heard in my life, but it didn't take me long to get into them..I'm also not a big fan of metal, not that they're overly metal-sounding. It took me a song or two to get used to the singer's voice, but once I did, the music was perfect.

Deep Purple is great at creating an atmosphere, blending heavy rock guitar with great organ/keyboards and some quality drumming. They're also good at creating more subtley melodic (i.e. the keyboards) and organic music (see Anyone's Daughter), and I enjoy the structure of their songs, the back-to-back solos (on Child of Time the guitarist and keyboardist get into it like a duel--stunning). Very great rock music."

"I guess the thought of another live album by the classic Mk II line-up of Deep Purple tends to create higher expectations than the quality of the results. Although the music itself is pretty good, the quality of the overall package leaves a little to be desired. For example, the cover lists a set of tracks. However, my CD player tells me that there are several more on the actual disc than appear on the cover, including "Lazy", "Woman From Tokyo" and "Space Truckin". Is there something ironic about the fact that this album only includes three tracks from the reunion period? Maybe they were starting to feel a little uncomfortable with this. Well Ritchie obviously was! Unlike some people I always liked "Anyone's Daughter" as a studio track, but the live version included here makes me wonder whether it was worth dusting it off after all these years. On the positive side it was good to hear the band actually rocking out - but was the souvenir of the era worth it? A must for Deep Purple completists like me, but for the casual listener, go for "Made In Japan" or even the 2CD "In Concert" set."
