A bigger sound? I think this is maybe Roger's best production ever, it doesn't get bigger than this, it just rushes over you like a waterfall. Nothing he did for Rainbow did that to the same effect, nor has anything since alas, IMO.

I'm not necessarily talking about the production - I'm not sure what I'm trying to say actually (no big surprise). Maybe it's simply to do with the songs' structure. They're a bit mundane. I don't think the writing is very good. For instance, Mean Streak - a piece of crap chorus that sounds like a poor man's Alice Cooper. Very weak.

PS was a great album even at the time. It had the trademarks that made DP. Now it serves to highlight that biggest musical strenghts the band used to have are gone and the latest version of Gillan (the band) can only occasionally come up with good material that is worthy of the DP trademark. But they acknowledge this and play AC/DC and Skynyrd riffs in concerts to pump up the audiences!

Yes I felt more than unfullfilled by Perfect Strangers last Saturday as I went to a concert. The support band called "No Way" did the terriblest cover version I ever heard.

Have to listen to the wonderful original now.

A: No. I felt far less fulfilled by "Stormbringer".



Ok, I hadn't wanted to go to far off course, but I agree that Stormbringer was WAY more disappointing than Perfect Strangers. I was crushed when Stormbringer came out. I like Perfect Strangers, just not nearly to the degree others seem to.



Same here on all counts
