Re: How good is Burn (the album)


Oh yes! Burn baby...
The title track is the frenzy-est DP ever recorded, Cov and Glenn proved wise choices and Ritchie, John and Ian seemed rivived compaired to WDWTWA...
I realy enjoy Sail away and Mistreated, too bad
the excitement faded in the Stormbringer album...

Actually, I see this album as the ultimate tribute to Gillan, by replacing him with not one, but two singers, trading off vocals on all the songs but Mistreated. What is nice about this disc is that it's not a bunch of cheesy songs going for a hit single, but it plays from start to finish with a sense of intellectual capacity. It's heavy, it rocks, it's bluesy. What a GREAT rock album!

Burn - The title track is a classic masterpiece.
Might Just Take Your Life - Unadulterated Deep Purple excellence.
Lay Down, Stay Down - Another good song with great Blackmore solos.
Sail Away - A tour de force among masterpieces. This should be an FM staple.
You Fool No One - Lots of percussion. One of my DP favorites.
What's Going on Here - Some silly lyrics but another excellent rocker.
Mistreated - Besides the title track, this is the other classic from Burn.
A 200 - A cool way to end the album, a quirky instrumental.

After not hearing it for several years, I'm now enjoying it much more than I remember emoticon

But I would still place it outside my top 5 Purple albums.

Okay, here comes my statement of the week:

No incarnation of DP did that on ANY album except Speed King on In Rock.

End of my statement.emoticon



Agree. That's why, in the end of the day, In Rock is their best hard rock album.

Burn is very good all over I think. I like the bluesy direction it takes, it's very heavy and powerfull. Part from A200 is the album very timeless to my ears. The remixed Coronarias Redig is brilliant!

Re: How good is Burn (the album)


Well in my 'umble opinion i think Come taste the band is the best album of the lot ! Followed by Stormbringer then |Burn,now i know this makes me seem like i prefer the mk3 & mk 4 line ups to the 'classic' mk 2 crew & i have to admit to this being correct but the point is this 2,3 & 4 were really different bands sharing the same name,the music was different because of this & i give thanks for that,we have some classic music from Gillan & co as well as the stuff from Coverdale & the silver throated god of vocals mr Hughes which would never have existed had mk 2 just gone on ! ALL the albums after perfect strangers are quite frankly rubbish & really don't stand up at all ,its a shame.I think in hindsight it would have been better for them to come back,tour perfect strangers & leave us with great [sign in to see URL] it is they are now a bit of a shadow,& Gillans voice is now well & truly burned out. emoticon

Yeah, but even the current shadow of Deep Purple still produced one of my personal favourite albums in 2003. Other bands are interesting too, for sure, but DP remain in the league of extraordinary musicians.

Re: How good is Burn (the album)


I like the album pretty much. They were having a good time and you can hear that. Although I don't appreciate Martin Birch's work on it. Mix could be way better.

Guitar should be louder (than everything else), specially in the titlesong. When the keys and bass come in, the guitar is nowhere.

Sail Away is such a funny song because of the funny riff.

Sail Away is an awesome song, I love the way the song flows, and how groovy it is.
