...don't you mean 'highlight' if there is more than one, on that 3rd from the worst Purple album ever, then please tell me... Ramshackle Man is nice... the title track isn't bad, but nothing to rave about, it has a track or two more, that give or take a fan or two, could be a number of any of the rest of them, for me, it would be Time To Kill, strictly for Gillan and Lords performances, considering it has one of Ricthies all time cheesiest riffs.
Nasty Piece Of Work, okay, it has a moment or two, but otherwise, you add the sorry excuse for a production, and tell me whats left?
(the worst produced album of theirs, by far and wide, and for me, their 3rd worst album overall)

In case you think I forgot about the magic "Anya" I didn't, I just count it as the only highlight, and it really ends after the intro if you ask me... TBRO, amounts to that acoustic intro for me, which blows away any acoustic bit I've heard him do since, but anyone needs more than that... surely.
Perhaps it's because it just didn't deliver, and prompted an embarkment that was unexpected, and maybe I blame that for it, afterall, the transition was negatively anticipating, so it must just be me, but TBRO doesn't receive enough criticism here imo.
(I don't care for it)



I agree, Purpendicular was indeed a new beginning, and very fresh. But the two albums that followed it were nowhere near the highlights of TBRO.

A positive echo... sounds like you've already changed your mind, about ROTD... a cut and paste, would have been complete. emoticon

Who said there was anything wrong with having template answers for all discussions and simply pasting them into the forum? emoticon

Sometimes I think I like ROTD more than Purpendicular. Depends on my mood, but the more I hear Rapture, the better it gets. And it was good when I first heard it.

I climbed on the back of a giant albatross
What flew through a crack in the cloud
To a place where happiness reigned all year round
Where music played ever so loudly

To me, ROTD sounds the same as from the beginning. A little boring. There are some good songs, but you also get some of Purple's worst- ever!
