After first listenings - my jaw literraly dropped. The best Purple album since 1970's. And I mean it.

It's the most progressive, most experimental, courageous album for more than 30 years though it's not that much riff-oriented, so fans of Blackmore style might have mixed feelings. Fantastic production.

The star of the album: Don Airey.




I absolutely agree! The first thing that jumped out at me was how every song surprises me. The songs are just so interesting. There is far more going on here than on any other album since MKII (the first time around).

Yet to receive my copy however PS vs MIJ or is it Major Impacts 3?

Having read RG's 3 part summary on making the album I'd love the band to have enough courage to do a special on the making of a song - one of the ones that got a number of rewrites including multiple SM solos, I think it would be a fascinating insight into the band.

I'm in my second listen now. Impressed.
Easily the best Morse era album. Is it the best since HOBL or even Perfect Strangers? Maybe.

No doubt that Ezrin has been important. Thank God for the person that got him involved. And thanks to him.

This sounds like Deep Purple to me.

Morse does a decent job, even if the spaces that craves for a visionary solo does not bring that kind of solo - it's ok. This is melodic, progressive, deep, interesting, dramatic, fun...

Agree with Classic Rock: 8/10...

Have listened to snippets of the songs during the day and now listened to it all the way through, really loud on good equipment.
It sounds brilliant. It sounds like Deep Purple. And it sounds like 2013 (without losing the classic sound.)
It's the most progressive album in decades. I truly didn't expect Deep Purple to have found new life at this stage.

I think Ezrin did a good job here although some of the songs ends a bit too soon.

My feelings after what?! 10th? listening:

Simple song: A good opener, groovy rolling. Nice happy chorus which gives me HBOL vibes.

Weirdistan: A bit weird (on purpose?), nicely proggy, again good chorus and nice fills from Paice there.

Out of Hand: The bastard child of songs Rapture of the deep and Perfect Strangers. Absolutely classic material.

Hell to Pay: Nice going rocker with 60's jam piece in the middle.

Body Line: Great! Could be either from Battle rages.. or Purpendicular. Drumming is a pure pleasure to listen with these clear sounds. And Gillan is back in his place blinking his eye to the ladies emoticon

Above and beyond: The weirdest song to me. A nice farewell to Jon, but it's not that catchy instrumentally than the rest of the album. Something from Abandon..

Blood from a stone: Yea! I'd love to hear this song live in a small hazy club! Gillan sounds brilliant on low notes.

Uncommon Man: This song should be the soundtrack for the next Rocky movie! There's something from WDWTWA..

Apres vous: This sounds mostly like the Purple we've used to hear in past 10 years. But if this was on Bananas, it would be the best song with Silver Tongue.

All the time in the world: This is the song where they tell there's nothing to prove. I like this one very much.

Vincent Price: The odd vampire story. Airey gives a touch of old Ozzy records here. Something from 60's favorite Arthur Brown.
This song ends too soon!

Re: ?!


I found one weakness of the album: Vincent Price is too short. What a song this is! Just brilliant.

I find no fillers on this album. I love Simple Song, for me the best opener for years, I love Out of Hand, I love Blood from Stone...I also like Above and Beyond. This one has something ilussive that makes me listen to it with pleasure.

Actually, it's difficult to pinpoint the best song.

I still claim that for me one of the joys of this album is the prominent role of the keyboards. In Blood from a Stone the keyboards transport me into the 70's and 60's, to the times of the Riders of the Storm of the Doors...

The best Morse-era album, but I would go further and say it is better than PS. Of course, PS is a classic album, but it did not push any boundaries, it was a collection of awesome rockers and two great ballads, but it used the same tricks and trademarks of the band.

Now What does push the boundaries, takes the band into a new direction, just like all the great albums of DP did. In Rock introduced the band into the world of heavy rock, Fireball was more experimental, Come Taste the Band introduced some funky elements... Now What pushes the band into the direction of progressive rock more than any other album, so I reckon this album to be one of the most important moments in the band's history.
