Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


I find the vocals to be very easy to keep in key with,for the first time ever,there are several songs I can keep his exact tone with.
But I don't know what that means as far as how good it is goes,probably not much considering my vocal skills emoticon but it does make me happy to keep in tune with Gillan for once in my life...if thats the "pedestrian" side of this album,then I'm all for it. emoticon

He's generally singing lower and not belting as he used to. I understand those that miss the fire of old, but I'm just glad that they exist at all.

Nothing wrong with a more relaxed vocal...especially after the often tediously strained vocals on Bananas. emoticon

And all I was expressing is his tones and general time keeping...

I haven't heard how Gillan's voice is these days yet because of Bradfords production. Distorted vocals my butt...

Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


Speaking as a drummer, Paice's drumming is very lively on this disc. Not since Purpendicular has his drumming sounded this inspired (With the possible exception of Seventh Heaven). I like this disc a lot.

It's better than it's been for a few years, but I think Paice lacks a lot of energy these day's. He can do much better, but I guess he just don't care anymore. I saw them on the Fruit Tour, and he was just as boring as he is on the Fruit Album.

That is what happens to drummers when the band slows down and just play the songs straight through without any jamming, and they plan everything that is going to happen during the shows.

I'm glad I have my CHOHW dvd and cd. Back then they were interesting to listen to. Now? Nah...

I'm glad you're atleast ten years behind too..man their are so many way better exaples of them,with and without your precious guitarist.
And they are all worth going to the ends of the earth to obtain,even if you can be as lazy to drive to the local shop and buy such examples...

You're missing out on the real good Blackmore/Lord material by doing this.emoticon

So you're basing your opinion on a very limited purchasing scale. emoticon

That is a great thing, because the strained shouting didn't sound good. That is one of the major reasons why ROTD stands out (for me, that is) from the past few albums. Gillan simply sounds better now.

Re: Musicians Take on ROTD


Despite what a lot of the naysayers think, the standard of musicianship of each player on Rapture of the Deep is really high.

I play guitar and bass and think that a bit of extra credit should go to Roger Glover for his contributions which, like the man himself,are solid and creative without ever being being flashy. He sometimes follows some of those fast guitar and keyboard lines on the bass which is tricky on those 4 fat old strings!

I also love his driving, pounding riff in the verse of Girls Like That which really drives the song along and saves (along with an excellent Airey solo) what is one of the weaker tracks.

It`s a shame that he sometimes gets lost in a rather muddy mix.

Agreed...Roger is all over the album,and it really does show in places never thought possible by a bass player in a rock band.
