That's cool, I have no issue with respectful disagreement. Different strokes and all that.

It is true it has some tough competition to stand up to, and maybe pales a little in comparison. I never found the material to be consistently strong, but your mileage may vary.

Hey, at least it isn't Stormbringer. Now there I have some bad opinions. emoticon

Do me a favour and spin WDWTWA again (including bonus tracks if you have it) and it just has that fresh, non-overproduced, real instrumentation sound relative to anything from 1984. Hey, it's clearly the weakest MkII album but look at its competition!

I love Bananas because of the aforementioned variation and it has such a fresh Airey feel/impact. Now What was history almost after I'd reviewed it and Purpendicular is now irrelevant IMHO.

I think that Rapture and Bananas are the best of the MKMorse albums and, in a way, hold up well compared to the MKII albums. They are really good. I can still listen to Purpendicular now and then. I like HOBL much better than PS, which needed more tunes like 'Not Responsible'. WDWTWA suffers in comparison, just because. I like it, though. Now What and Infinite are only played here and there, mostly there. In comparison to what is out there today, though, they are better than most. I think that DP still puts out quality albums, whether they suit our taste for them or not.

If you were talking about Infinite, I would agree with you. I find Infinite, well, infinitely forgettable. Whereas Now What I find to be just a great set of songs. Melodic, they have hooks, I remember them when they are done. I can't clearly remember a single song on Infinite. The don't linger in my mind at all.

How can you forget "All I Got Is You", "The Surprising" and "Birds of Prey"..? emoticon

Now What is very good all the way through IMHO.

The Surprising and BoP are great songs.
