Yeah, that is accually a good idea. The sadest possible thing is if Purple eventually are reduced to a nostalgia like Whitesnake, who just play oldies. Then it's better to do one last MkII studio album and tour, and then call it a day.

But it has already been happening for the last 5 years! emoticon

They are older, and a "return to their glory" would be nostalgic. They've done all that stuff, and the fact of the matter is that this is 2005, not 1975; monster riffs and glass-shattering screams were played out 15 years ago. Besides, don't we want a band to grow, and not repeat itself endlessly?



Exactly, BUT that's what they did on Bananas. It's remaking all the ideas. Nothing new. Even in Sun Goes Down Gillan's vocal line sounds at times just as the one from AOP's Evil Eye emoticon They're all out of good ideas, and count Blackers in. What a shame.

Re: What do we want from the new album?


Why not a big, bold statement that goes back to what made Deep Purple great in the first place?

Why not go back to what makes your spine tingle every time you listen? The live intro to "You Fool No One" from MIE? "Space Truckin'" from MIJ? "Mandrake Root" from IC?

Dp used to be a BOLD band. They didn't make records like we wanted them to, they were error prone, brash and experimentative.

I'd like a double CD (yeah, !@#$ the profit margins, you make that up from touring anyway) consisting of maybe 6 to 8 songs, with a classic heavy hitting rocker, preferrably with RB:ish Arabic-influenced harmonics a'la PS, a couple of really long, jamming experimentation tracks in the "Fools" or "Demon's Eye" vein, some beautiful slower tracks in the "Gypsy", "When A Blind Man Cries" vein and a lot of over the top, Hammond-laden jamming.

And absolutely NO widdely-widdely guitar! Torture SM and make him STOP turning the "Eighties Sound" knob to 11...

Did I mention more Hammond?

Did I mention great GIllan lyrics a'la "The Mule"?

Add a really cool, strange cover and a weird title, and you're all set: new credibility, fun new stuff to play live, and a great powerful note to go out to if they chose to.

It's so simple really... wish I could do it, too ;-)

Agree. One thing DP don't need to do, is to go "safe" to "secure sale", as all (yet also only) hard core fans are gonna buy it anyway. I don't think even another In Rock or Machine Head could change that.

Re: What do we want from the new album?


One thing I have noticed about the last three studio albums have been the stunning growth of maturity the lyrics (I know, people don't listen to Purple for the words, but sharp lyrics and good music make a well rounded song) have displayed. This is an avenue they should continue to pursue.

Musically, they should make a conscious effort to experiment and stretch out more and more while retaining the basic core of the DP sound as much as possible. This can be done, though it is much easier said than done.

Though this may be blasphemy in the eyes of some, I don't wanna hear Machine Head II or In Rock II. They have been there and done that, I have those albums, and don't care to hear rehashes that will always pale in compairson next to the originals. I want this band to continue to GROW, not regress.

This band can grow and evolve. In any field of creative endeavor, the artist or artists -should- get better as they grow older, not worse. This isn't sports where age and injuries gradually diminish reflexes and reaction times. The only obstacle to this is complacency - which, unfortunately, this band has been guilty of more than once, believing that they can coast on their reputation and not try too hard. If they go into the studio committed to delivering a quality album, and willing to work, we will all be happy with the result.

1. Agree. Way to go! There's oughta be some peotic wisdom left behind in the guys after all these years.

2. M-m-m-mu-mu-mu-much eas...eesss...easieaseasea said th-th-th-th-than d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d...on. emoticon

3. I'm very happy with Bananas (though musically I find Abandon a little bit stronger).

Unfortunately, the current Purple guitarist is NOT built for this, Purple will end up with another ABANDON even if Bradford is producing, if they tries to ventures into the heavier sounding album.

Purple should stay in the variety-style album like PURPENDICULAR and BANANAS, they are safe in this musical territory. To me Purple is still a mighty Great White shark, but without a teeth.

This is my humble opinion, the power and the wildness is gone, but the versatility and creativity is better.
