Re: ROTD vs Bananas?


I can do this! I tried to stack the songs up in a more fair comparison.

Money Talks vs. House of Pain = MT
Girls Like That vs. Sun Goes Down = SGD
Wrong Man vs. Silver T. = WM
Rapture Of The Deep vs. IGYN = ROTD
Clearly Quite Absurd vs. Haunted = CQA
Don't Let Go vs. Walk On = DLG
Back To Back vs. Razzle Dazzle = BTB
Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye vs. Bananas = Bananas
MTV vs. Doin it Tonight = DIT
Junkyard Blues vs. POI = POI
Before Time Began vs. Never A Word = BTB

ROTD 7
Bananas 4

ROTD wins, but I'll check back with more perspective.

MT vs. SK= SK
GLT vs. Bloodsucker= Bloodsucker
Wrong Man vs. CIT= CIT
ROTD vs. FOTR= FOTR
Into the Fire vs. dont let go= dont let go
living wreck vs dont let go= living wreck
hLM man vs. back to bak = HLM
nothing vs. KTG=KTG
nothing vs. MTV= MTV
nothing vs JB=JB
nothing [sign in to see URL]= BTB

final score
IR= 6 ROTD= 5

Of course, it's not nearly as close as it looks

Re: ROTD vs Bananas?


Bret Adams of the "All Music Guide" gives the nod too...

Deep Purple's 2005 album Rapture of the Deep generally maintains the quality of 2003's surprisingly sturdy Bananas. It's the second release from the re-energized line-up of vocalist Ian Gillan, guitarist Steve Morse, bass guitarist Roger Glover, drummer Ian Paice, and keyboardist Don Airey, who replaced the retired Jon Lord. The band's comfort level has increased, and after nearly a decade on-board, Morse's stamp is all over the place. At first, this guitar genius' presence was noticeable because of what it lacked -- the incredibly distinctive Fender Stratocaster electric guitar tone of Ritchie Blackmore. Thus, sometimes Deep Purple didn't sound like Deep Purple. However, the variety of tones Morse incorporates in his style gives the pioneering heavy metal quintet more sonic weaponry. Airey's long, respectable career as a journeyman keyboardist-for-hire pretty much guaranteed he would largely adopt Lord's organ-based style, at least at first, but he has expanded his sound on Rapture of the Deep too. "Money Talks," "Girls Like That," and "Wrong Man" ride strong riffs and rhythms into decent grooves. "Rapture of the Deep" floats along on a lightly hypnotic wave. The mature ballad "Clearly Quite Absurd" has a lilting, controlled tempo, and it's the biggest surprise on the album; Gillan's singing is appropriately subdued while Airey's piano supplies the beauty and Morse's gradually ascending riffs toward the end build the tension. "MTV" is a vicious, bile-spewing, all-out attack on how the modern music industry treats classic rock/heritage artists, although in 2005 Deep Purple clearly appeals more to VH1 Classic than MTV. Initially, the song risks biting the hand that feeds by correctly criticizing classic rock radio for not playing new music by veteran artists. The last verse is a cannon blast that pummels clueless, uninformed disc jockeys who, during interviews, butcher artists' names ("Mr. Grover 'n' Mr. Gillian"), get facts wrong (misinterpreting the Frank Zappa-inspired "Smoke on the Water" legend), and avoid in-depth discussion of new music (like Bananas) in order to record more station IDs. Rapture of the Deep -- Deep Purple's first album for Eagle Records -- misses equaling Bananas by a notch or two, but it's a good example of how many veteran artists still maintain creative vitality.



It's Bananas by a hair, or two.

I can't believe that ROTH is winning! emoticon It was a major let down for me so Bananas has my vote.

Re: ROTD vs Bananas?


They both have strong songs (and a few weak songs...), but IMO ROTD is more "back to the roots" and contains stronger songs than Bananas.

My vote goes to ROTD!

(...and this time I wont talk about the poor productionwork done on these two albums by Bradford. I wont say a thing...)

Re: ROTD vs Bananas?


I will... emoticon not only is it his production work, but he musically influenced them somehow on both records, to my liking a bit on Bananas, not to my liking on ROTD, there is a large funk element, that is too r&b for my taste, and the production on it, hevaily reflects that, so I like the albums, but I don't appreciate the whole "6th member" factor, it stinks as far as I'm concerned, and is the only flaw I find in mk8.

I still rate ROTD higher than Bananas though, for the material, the tracks blend very well... I'm sure Bradford and his friends can dance to it. emoticon

A-ha! So we (finally) agree on the funk [sign in to see URL] on the production as well! Hmmm...
