Oh, buuuu huuuu.... One should be careful critisizing the mighty Purple on this forum! Some real fans might take it as an personal insult, and give you answers like...ehr..well...read above!

Atle, I couldn't agree more. And I also take your initial point. I just think the more categories we have, the more we naturally stereotype that category. So anything that can reduce categorization is alright by me.

I will compliment them when I think that they deserve a compliment. If I think that they don't deserve it, I wont! OK?

That doesn't quite seem to be exactly how you operate...OK?

If you did that,you'd most likely post more consistantly one way or the other...and who's to detirmine whether or not they "deserve" such remarks...making that detirmitation on your own,proves my point.

OK, here's to "consistantly": I have both positive and negative things to say about the Purple of today.

I think you read my rating of the songs on ROTD, and I gave them good points on the basis of that I didn't compare the songs to Purple's past and I didn't take the productionside of things into consideration (as I said: Then ROTD would've got a much lower rating). By the way, I've heard ROTD at least a hundred times and usually a Purple record grows on me. This one did for a couple of weeks, but now I think that it's quite dull. It have it's moments, but not enough to make it interesting. It's the first Purple record that have started to grow on me the opposite way...

About Morse: I respect him as a human and a mucician. I've met him, and he is certainly a nice man. I just think that his style don't fit in with Purple. On Purpendicular I found him to be fresh and exciting (Abandon likewise), but after that I think his playing becomes more and more repetitive. It's to much widdle widdle in my ears, and I can't hear that he has brought anything new to the band since the mid-ninties. Remember: IMO!

About Gillan: I may have said things about Gillan that some on the forum find "hard to swallow", but that's just the way I feel about him at the moment. I've met Gillan too, and the first times (in the ninties) he was a very nice and likeable guy. I have met him in resent years, and now he don't seem to take any interest in the fans. He's just grumpy, and that doesen't fit with who he tries to be on TV shows etc. He is acting cool and nice, but IMO he's not that cool or nice anymore. That is why I said that I think he took over where Blackmore left of. And I still think that he should stop drinking and smoking so that he can sing better than now. His voice is really close to embarresing.

"Just so you know where I stand-department": Deep Purple have a proud history. I would hate to see them go out of business in their current state. In my mind the thing to do for them would be to reform MKII once again for one last record and a world tour. That way I think most fans would remember them with affection and not as (IMO) a tributeband to themselves. I've seen MKII live, and IMO the current MK doesn't reach them to the knees.

By the way- moodwise I'm quite happy when writing this, and in good health, not angry or in a bad mood emoticon

I think what you say is very close to what the music history books will say about the current Purple in some years. DP mk 8 don't add anything to the legacy of the band. And there are plenty of better rock albums to buy. And it should not be like that; they're Deep Purple emoticon They SHOULD compete with their own past. It's pathetic to give up that fight. Why be Deep Purple if they dont do that? They're the same band, for chist sake..:-)

For those of you very critical to the critics of the Purple of today ( emoticon) , please do remember that A LOT of those that dont dig the present mk Morse Purple out there ARE fans of DP in general and rock fans. They're just not die hards like most the the posters in here. They are fans of the Deep Purple that was inventive, fresh and progressive. The DP of today are a shadow of that, would most music fans say. You dont need to be a depressive, grumpy guy to mean that. Quite the opposite, most happy music/ rock fans would say so... emoticon (I'm sad to say)

I have no problem with your perspectives on DP today.... as long as we understand that comments like "MK8 don't add anything to the DP legacy" and "there are plenty of better rock music out there" and "they're a tribute band" etc... are taken as your opinions and not stated as fact. I happen to disagree. But that's MY opinion. Then again, I favor ABBA over most rock music anyway emoticon.
