How could anybody feel unfulfilled by "Under The Gun", maybe the best DP song written for the reunion?!? It blows me away everytime, a masterpiece of a production that song alone.



Agreed. "Under The Gun" is one of the bright spots and pretty good just as it is.

So if a remix was made, I'd still hold on to the old mixes for sure, but I bet a remix DONE RIGHT, could be breath taking.

Has anyone heard the remixed "Who By Numbers?" Much better than the original. "Quadrophenia" on the other hand not as good. But I'm willing to take a chance with Purple.

Matter of fact, if they want me to remix them, they know where to find me.

I would love to see/hear a proper remix and include extended versions of songs that go past the fade and demos, alternate takes, unreleased jams (Jon Lord mentioned one time that there are a ton of jams from PS). And round the whole thing out with a companion DVD in the package that contains studio footage of them recording PS including the entire film of Son of Alerik and one of the 3 filmed shows from Australia 84.

That would do it for me.

Like with "Machine Head", there should definitely be a 'Classic Album' DVD (from Eagle Rock Ent.) of this album, it's important rock history if only for the reunion aspect only. And then the management/Thames/Thompson can release their own 2-disc, with loads of rare footage. Get a move on, fellas.

Have to say that i found PS a bit of a dissapointment!

Im not sure quite what i had expected from PS I suppose it was that the guys would follow on from WDWTWA and they most certainly did not.

What I got was pretty much Rainbow with a better Keyboard player.



Exactly

As others have said, a badly mixed muddy sounding 80's rock album, with two outstanding tracks and the rest mediocre. Decent enough album but not up to the sublime standards of legendary Purple at their 70's heyday peak

He he, not to become a millionaire. But it's a sure way, not to say the sure way to go to make a decent living from playing music. At least around here it is.

Re: Do You Ever Feel Unfullfilled By Perfect Strangers??


When I first heard of the reunion I was so excited. Almost like a kid finding out there really is a Santa. I was expecting a combination of songs where there would be lazy type keyboarding, Burn like drumming, Blackmore bursting away from the 80's sound and at least Glory Road type singing. Instead I got Perfect Strangers

Guitar: 80's Rainbow. Boring.
Drums: Drum Machine. Boring
Organ: Conservative and Simple
Vocals = No catchy songs. No Flow.
Bass = The only bright spot

I was so disappointed. I had to listen to it over and over to find some hooks but with great difficulties. Over time I came to appreciate KAYBD and PS but still a very average album to me. Not the same as any Mark 2 before that.

Perpendicular is a far better Mark 2 type album than any Reunion Mark 2.

Interesting question. Like, are one night stands ever enough?

Well, I think Perfect Strangers was a 'safe' album, put it like that. I rather like HOBL, to be honest, and at this moment in time I'm not sure which I prefer.

Hmm, how could PS be 'safe'? Yes, it's commercial but it has a much heavier sound and feel than the Rainbow albums before it, in fact, I think it's way heavier than THOBL which is quite thin sounding with a basic riff orientation. Some of the songs though, like the title track and KAYBD, are very Rainbowish (I hear JLT and GB singing, respectively).

Agreed. The most overrated DP album. PS the song was good followed by KAYBD, but after that nothing too impressive. Wasted Sunsets had potential, but sounds unfinished and in the end lacking. I expected a bigger sound. Songwriting for the most part was mediocre.
