I believe this was the last album of DP MK 2 before they broke up, and in hindsight it doesn't sound nearly as aggressive or focused as prior releases like In Rock or Machine Head. Still a solid album and the bonus tracks/remixes are a welcome addition.

CD Reviews

3 1/2 stars - not as good as the ones that went before
Matthew Schwarz | Bridgewater, nj United States | 05/10/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album is a weird one - after the triple-punch of In Rock, Fireball, and Machine Head (all classic masterpieces of the first wave of heavy metal), this one is a little limp. Part of it seems to be that Jon Lord isn't using the heavy Hammond-through-a-Marshall sound he pioneered on the previous three, but the songs and band in general don't gell as much. The hit single "Woman From Tokyo" is likeable, but a bit poppy and cheesy for the band, and not nearly as classic as (say) "Strange Kind of Woman". There's some decent, hard-rocking songs on this album (the middle 4 songs), but none of them are really as memorable as the stuff on their 3 previous albums - which are filled beginning to end with classics. So, not a bad album, but it just doesn't compare with their best."
Excellent and a half

"After the massive success of Machine Head, Deep Purple just kept on rolling.

Who Do We Think We Are basically uses the same smart riffed metel with keybords that Purple had been using since Deep Purple in Rock. Here, the keyborads are a little heavier, and the music is a little thinker, but these differances don't change the sound of Purple a good deal.

The sound, is in fact, effective as ever, such as on the blistering "Smooth Dancer," or the chugging "Mary Long." "Place In Line," may be the band's best take on the blues.

"My Women From Tokyo" is one of rock's great songs, and had it not been for "Smoke On The Water," would probably have been Deep Purple's signature piece."
