Re: Rapture is a great cd

Well there I was yesterday driving across the state of Florida, Tampa to Vero Beach (about 6 hrs round trip) to meet with a client. On my trip, I took 3 cds with me, Rainbow (Rising), Government Mule (Deja Voodoo) and DP Rapture of the Deep. We all know Rising is great, and I enjoyed hearing it for the 1*10^25 time! The Mule’s last cd is great as well; with the great Warren Haynes giving it has best as only he can do. Finally with my third listen, I popped in Rapture into the Nissan Altima I rented from Enterprise (hell no I won’t put miles on my Murano for work related travels). I hadn’t listened to Rapture since before x-mas. When I listened to it upon its release I wasn’t all that impressed. After a few more listens I liked it, but didn’t think it was anything special. But man after not listening to it for about 2 months, I was floored as to how f&cking awesome it is!! I must have listened to it about 4 times in succession on my trek. After some initial criticism to Paice, he sounds a lot better now! I love the swing on GLT and on other songs. On Back to Back, previously I thought man my grandmother all 92 years of her, could keep the pace on that track. Then yesterday I heard all those Paicey signature fills in and out of the song, and I’m like that’s PAICEY!! RG’s bass sound is kick-ass and omnipresent throughout, I have to cream my pants every time I listen to Things I Never Said and MTV, great bass work on those tracks, in addition to the others. Finally, Steve Morse kicks total ass on this cd!!! I think this is the best guitar work Steve has done with DP. From the bone crushing riffs/rhythm work on Wrong Man, Money Talks, to the Allmanesque sounding Don’t let go, and to the great solos on Rapture (love the part at the end of the solo where he hits those high notes and holds its…pure magic) MTV, Back to Back, Before Time Began, JY Blues, etc. to the Dregs-esque riff on JY Blues (this riff kinda reminds me of Blood Sucking Leaches, a great Dregs tune) it’s a bible as to how a guitar should sound (and be played) in a rock group IMHO (similar to Rising, Perfect Strangers, PT=MC^2, See the light, in Step, Axis Bold as Love, Houses of the Holy, etc).

This just in: Steve Morse and Don Airey are da bomb and DP still kicks ass, with a new great cd!! Thanks fellas for a worthy addition to the great DP catalogue.

Now the big question, when are they going to play in Florida??? Since I’m a daddy-o now, the WIFE won’t allow me to take out-of-state trips…unless I don’t take her and baby Sophia with. That rules out trips to the stip jo…ah never mind.

Memo to DP and promoters: call up Warren Haynes, get the Mule involved in the tour and take your asses over to the Tampa State Theater and put on a kick-ass show.


Wonder if useless, I mean remorsless, has seen this thread!! emoticon

Yes, the cd definitely has staying power.

After the initial euphoria from it's release wore off, I pulled it from my rotation, returning to it about a month later. At this time, there are a couple of "skips", but even those I listen to now and again. Money Talks, Wrong Man, ROTD, KTG, Junkyard Blues & Before Time Began always get played.

I hate to say it, but CQA (one of my initial faves) usually gets skipped over nowadays, though I'm sure it'll come back to me.

I hadn't listened to it much since it came out in the States,and at the time thought it about 50-50.I plugged it into the truck console and started driving without any ideas about it,and it has to be one of their best.Matter of fact,the only gripe I had with it was the drums mix in Kiss Tomorrow,which still get on my nerves.Hard to believe they're of the vintage they are.Rapture sells pretty briskly in this neck of the woods,the local Best Buys just got a restock the other week.It's good to see them play so much of it in concert.
