Re: Where are the US reviewers of ROTD?


FAtlARryINHisCARHolDINGgiLlaNSMicsTAND has asked me to hold it up to it's own merits without comparison to what i think DP should sound like, or what they once sounded like. Well, I tried to do that, and even compared to todays rubbish that passes off for music, if I were to hear this whole lp on an INDIE radio station, had a friend play it for me or something like that, without any relation to my second favorite band Deep Purple, I would not have given it another thought and it would be long forgotten. Hmmm..sounds like a good title for the next album eh
"Long Forgotten, After One Listen"

My advice is the opposite of Larry's. Don't listen to it anymore and don't try to find the angle that you may like it with. If you don't like it, you don't like it. That's what I did with BN after UAVM. Lost interest, not trying anymore.

Never mind, I figured it out. Blackmore's Night "Under a Violet Moon". Yeah, it's great musicianship, but it is too slow, the Blackmore's Night stuff. Too many slow songs put me to sleep.

OK, I'm going to back track just a little. I gave it another try in the home surround sound and well....its getting better. Gillan dont sound quite as whinny! Theres some fairly good licks, still a little to much widdle from you know who. The overall structure/mood of the songs are starting to grow on me. ROTD has already surpassed ))) & abandon by far. If they tour the US with ROTD setlist I would go.

Re: Where are the US reviewers of ROTD?


Just a quick response. Location St. Louis,MO.
ROTD is my favorite of the Morse era releases. I agree some of the Morse soloing is a bit redundant when he is playing straight electric guitar" but the overall album goes in my personal top 5 of the Deep Purple output. My favorite album is Burn, followed by Machine Head probably. Rounding out the top 5: Perfect Strangers and In Rock (Bananas was a close 6th) Each album has had its moments when I was into it (except for Slaves and Masters and TBRO-I don't really listen to Mark I or Mark IV but I prefer them over either of the aforementioned albums). I agree, music is like food and we each have our tastes and those are mine.

OK.....I take back everything bad I said about this CD. After a couple Sam Adams and a fattie this thing rocks. They should record this live and get it on Directv freeview for the world to see. Still a little hard getting past the widdle but the composition and thyme of the cd is excellent. There are actually a couple memorable riffs. I'm having a new cd player installed in my ride Thursday. Didnt realize how bad it was till I listened to this cd. For some reason it sounds worse than other cd's. Anyway Mr Glover, Mr Gillian if you do it right you could make a million!
