Try playing the battle rages on after it and you might find they do not need TMIB and have not for the last 13 years . Other fans on the forum have said that ROTD has grown on them , others loved it instantly and others just hate it , so if nothing else it has generated some good debate and so far has inspired the guys into some good live shows . I'm playing it as I type and I still really like it.

Which is what I (a bit masochistically emoticon ) did. Rapture does not stand ANY comparison to Battle - the sound being the first reason. On TBRO we have sharp, crystal clear and modern sound which easily stood a test of time after 12 years or so. On Rapture sound is very weak, harking back to the Fireball era - which was OK, but in 1971, not in 2005.
Ian Gillan was happy to have it done so quickly, saying that this is the best way to "capture feeling within the band" (or something like this). Let me remind now that Purpendicular (it's 10 years now after its launch!) was done within several months - and say it is not a good album...
I find Rapture as one of the weakest Purple albums ever - made too quickly, with too many fillers and too many not finished ideas, which after some work could result in true classics. A big disappointment overall - 4,5 out of 10 stars would be a fair rating.

Agreed fully. I've given it a chance but it totally pales in comparison to Bananas. The songs are boring, the guitar playing is boring, the drums are boring. Another big issue is the whole album is mid tempo and never speeds up. It doesn't rock hard enough. I've played it at least 10 times but it quickly dropped off the playlist. If people like it that's fine- I don't.

Sorry for the double post but I also couldn't have said this better and agree 100 percent.

It's best of the Morse era albums, and better than HOBL or S&M.

You know, it's hard to compare Rapture of the Deep to The Battle Rages On. Both have Rainbow elements, but from different time periods. I think Rapture resurrects some Rainbow stuff from Bonnet era, while The Battle Rages on takes on JLT stuff... I think if The Battle Rages on were remastered, then I would probably like it better than Rapture... but at the moment, for the first time since Morse joined DP, I like Rapture better than the Battle Rages on... I really haven't listened to the Battle very much since Rapture was released, and I don't know why...
