Rapture Of The Deep, a year later...


So what do you guys think of the album now, almost a year later?

It would appear the last 2 DP albums have been slow burners that seem to do well in some countries where they have just toured. Any chart entry these days for DP is a bonus(France at the moment) . They seem to chart well in Germany and some countries in the east of europe. This is probably enough to justify an album release. In the uk ,being big in Germany , Russia, eastern europe and Japan is no big deal and means nothing . To have a album do well in the uk and the USA gives you much more credibility(rightly or wrongly) . Deep Purple will do an arena tour in April of about 10 dates and will sell between 4000 and 8000 tickets per venue , however this usually does not guarantee extra album sales (enough to chart). In terms of album sales the UK and USA Deep Purple do not make the smallest dent ,this is a band that has had 10 top ten albums plus others that have charted . The last album to chart in the top 40(non compilation) in the uk was come hell or high water after that they have struggled to scrape into the top 100. Is it simply down to the missing Blackmore factor because I believe ROTD compares well with all reunion albums and the live shows are much more consistant compared to Blackmore era shows .(maybe not as exciting as some). The lack of control over their back catalogue does not help ( rubbish compilations and too many ok live albums littering the shelves). For all Gillans complaints about airplay etc the reasons for their fall in popularity falls at their own doorsteps i.e. inferior releases , too many line up changes , trying too hard to turn back the clock at the time of the reunion , over touring , timing of the tours( in the uk we rarely see them when Gillan is fresh and on top of his game) and lastly a lack of tv exposure ( i am not talking about pop shows but something like later with jools holland would give them some cred in the uk , a killer performance of 2 new songs would do wonders in the ).

In the UK and USA (and Sweden), people are so anxious to be cool, they would never admit they like dp...
In other places people just don't care, they listen to what they like.

As we all should.
Tellboy1 makes no significant point, it's Deep Purple, not the corporate rat race.

Nice!
But isn't this the sort of thing, that a few King thinkers around here, will have your head for?
