Re: rapture of the deep good or awfule????


Rapture is excellent!

After the boring Abandon, and the pleasant but forgettable Bananas, ROTD is a fantastic return to form.

The organ sound is back and the band have an edge that I thought had gone long ago. At times Rapture rocks heavy, at others it remain thoughtfully drawn out. Sometimes it is just downright funky, Heaven forbid.

But it's rocking, and interesting, without being too serious that the fun is taken out of it.

There is no filler on it, in my opinion. Some tracks may be better than others, but it's only the third album since the reunion that contains no songs that make me want to rush to my stereo and click 'Next'.

Excellent stuff. Thoroughly pleased, and looking forward to the next one. Purple are still rocking. That's good to know.

Well, maybe it's not awaful but still a much weaker release to me. Production is the worst so far to me.

I hope it won't be doing well at the box office emoticon

I agree with you, but what three albums since the reunion are you referring to.

I believe, Perfect Strangers, The House Of Blue Light, Purpendicular and Bananas contain zero songs that make me want to hit 'skip' button.

True, but it works. Kind of a "IN ROCK" 21st century style thing.

If you love this album, you owe it to yourself to buy the Japanese version.
It sounds alot better. emoticon

The three albums I was referring to were Perfect Strangers, Purpendicular, and Rapture!

Ted The Mechanic almost makes me wanna skip, but I can just about handle it because there's so much goodness after it!

House of Blue Light - Mitzi Dupree emoticon

Slaves & Masters - Love Conquers All emoticon

The Battle Rages On - Talk About Love emoticon

Abandon - Any Fule Know That emoticon

Bananas - Picture of Innocence emoticon

Some fabulous tracks on those albums, but just the odd track on each that doesn't really do anything for me!

Hi Rahul,

I was with you pretty much throughout this thread until you mentioned PoI. Happens to be my favorite from Bananas. Go figure.

Agree on the fact that PS, Purpendicular, and ROTD stand above all reunion records.

I think it is marvellous, and I may just have to get both the Japanese version AND the tour version!

Nice rhyme there!

As for bummer tracks, Any Ful is the worst DP song ever. Ever, I said, right down to the silly spelling! emoticon
