Which album should I get next and why?


Consider myself a big Purple fan but not a completist, probably similar to a lot of their fans including those who still go to their concerts. After finally seeing them for the first time in Madrid last year (they've hardly ever played here), I've been on a big Purple kick and want to get more of their stuff. Also really enjoyed the knowledgeable views on this forum, so I'm asking what should I get next (studio album) and why? Thanks in advance and maybe this will start an interesting debate. I currently have:

In Rock
Fireball
Machine Head
Live in Japan
Burn (absolutely love all of these)
Self titled 3rd album (like it a bit but not lots)
Now What
Infinite (like these last two a lot)

Also have a compilation of 80s stuff called Classic Deep Purple which has some studio and live tracks. Love the songs Perfect Strangers and KOYBT. Remaining studio tracks are from the House of Blue Light and feel a bit generic to me (Bad Attitude, The Unwritten Law, Dead or Alive)

So, where should I go next Purple fans?

I would suggest Perfect Strangers as your next choice. The band were back together after 11 years (MKII) and they just sound like they are having a great time.
IG singing great, JL playing fantastic again after his spell in Whitesnake, and RB sounding inspired after the disappointing Rainbow albums.

Just a great album, my second favourite studio album from the purps.

I would also suggest Perfect Strangers. Great album! After that, I would suggest Shades of Deep Purple. This is the album that started it all. Songs like Mandrake Root, And the Address, Hush, and their version of Hey Joe are some of the best songs DP ever did (IMHO).

Come Taste the Band, Who do we Think we are and Stormbringer.

All three classic albums, WDWTWA being so under-rated imho!

Looks like Perfect Strangers is the favourite so far but thanks for all of your suggestions!

Live In Paris 1974 if you like Burn. The best Mark III live set. Almost as good as MIJ and better than Made In Europe.

But MIE is only mk III songs, which is why I like so much. And the band is great here.
