Re: How good is Burn (the album)


Burn makes my top 3, I'd always loved when the band took a chance and/or shift in direction, witch my top 3 clearly reflects:

1. Fireball
2. Purpendicular
3. Burn

Re: How good is Burn (the album)


Listened to the album a while ago. It's even better than I remembered!

A detail that really caught my attention was Lordy's piano work in What's Going On Here.

RB never really reched the heights of his Mistreated end solo live - except maybe in the Rising tour rehersals.

Classic album with many great songs... sail away and MJTYL are the two faves on this one. But they are all very good!

Re: How good is Burn (the album)


My top Purple albums (at the moment) would be:

 In Rock/ Machine Head
 WDWTWA/ Burn/ Perfect Strangers
 Purpendicular/ Abandon/ Fireball
 Come Taste The Band

I think Burn is a brilliant album, and by far the best done by MKIII. Stormbringer is a weak album IMO.

As time passes, opinions may change.

Not in this case.

How good is Burn, the album ?

You know how it feels to love a piece of music so much it just hurts?

There I am, some 23-24 years after I heard it for the first time.

OP here. Opinions may change as noted above, and it's safe to say BURN is #4 for me, pretty firmly, but now Mistreated is my second favorite song on the album, where it used to be MJTYL.

I love Burn, always have. Burn, Sail Away, YFNO & Misteated are classic tracks and among some of my most listened to. To me, if they had put Coronarias Redig on the album and made A200 the b-side, the album would have been that much stronger. The remix of CR is all that much better.

Re: How good is Burn (the album)


Burn - superb
Might just - average
Lay Down - average
Sail away - very nice
You fool - superb
What's - average
Mistreated - great, but live much better
A 200 - great guitar, weak drumming

p.s.: Coronarias Redig wasn't recorded in Montreux. That has nothing to do with the Burn sessions. It was recorded later in Copenhagen, December 10th at the Rosenberg Recording Studio.
