MK I vs Current line up


Since it appears that Infinite might be DP's last album, how do you rate the first line ups albums against the current line up: Here's mine

1. Deep Purple (third album). One of my favorite albums. A few folks don't like RB's tone on this album but I think it fits in just fine.

2. Shades. From the opening notes of Lord's Hammond to the end of Hey Joe, not a bad track on this album.

3. Now What. Easily my favorite album of the current line up.

4. TBOT. Not a bad album. Purple were still trying out different musical styles. Wring that Neck and The Shield are the 2 standout tracks to me.

5. Banana's. Just an OK album.

6. ROTD. Terrible mix along with a lot of boring tracks.

7. Infinite. I know a lot of people have high praise for this album. I just don't like it.

Re: MK I vs Current line up


1. Infinite- Consistently strong throughout, except for the closing track.

2. Now What?!- Has a track or two that's as strong or stronger than anything on INFINITE, but not as consistent overall to me.

3. The Book of Taliesyn - Great album with strong original material, "The Shield" is one of the best tracks from any line-up.

4. Bananas - Would have been an all time classic had it been better produced, excluded "Haunted", and if Jon Lord had been on it. Some really great songs still.

5. Shades of Deep Purple - Solid debut, but Blackmore sounds hesitant and even lost at times. Excellent performances from everyone else though.

Deep Purple- Great songs and Blackmore is finally becoming Blackmore. You can really see how MK 1 had reached the end though. The album sounds pretty dated for 1969, especially compared to a few other albums from that year. The Concerto and "Hallelujah" suffer from this as well. Thankfully, IN ROCK completely rectified this situation.

6. Rapture of the Deep - This album can't compare to the ones that are listed above. It's just lifeless, plodding, and boring. A couple of songs on here make "Too Much Is Not Enough" sound like a masterpiece by comparison. The production is even worse than BANANAS. This is the only Deep Purple album that I rarely listen to.

Agree about The Shield, possibly the best mk I song ever. Or Shield as it is known too.

Also Wring that Neck and Anthem are great tracks too. Why does this album (TBoT) always send me back too old Christopher Lee vampire movies..?

Re:


One more of these completely pointless comparisons. Mk I were a young band trying to find some musical identity, Mk 2017 ist the opposite of that.

Not pointless at all!! If you think it's pointless, why did you respond?

Re:


Because I still hope that some reasonable discussion about music will go on here instead of all that "this vs that", "top 5 this", "top 5 that" and so on. For me, talking about music isn't just comparing.

But if you can't get enough of all that, why not comparing, for example, the early Gillan solo albums with Black Sabbath's Born Again? Or Ritchie's work in The Outlaws with Stranger In Us All? That cannot be more pointless than what's going on here.

Re: MK I vs Current line up


 If you don't think a discussion is reasonable, do what I do and just skip it. By the way, I think that "this vs that" is reasonable. As far as your ideas, In think "Gillan", "Glory Road" and "Furture Shock" are much better than "Born Again". "Magic" is worse. Instead of Joining Sabbath, IG should have rested his voice. Instead he gets drunk and signs with Sabbath. As for RB's work in the Outlaws vs SIUA, I would have to save that for a different time as I haven't had the Outlaw CD's out for a long time. Maybe you could do a comparison.

Very different beasts; and I'm keeping both. emoticon
