Coverdale is just a poor imitation of Gillan/Plant. All of the songs have one major problem. His voice. Nevermind that the songs themselves apart from Burn and Mistreated maybe are so generic melodically and musically, his voice is the biggest problem
While not necessarily DP's best record, Burn is probably the most musically interesting one of the bunch. The band certainly experiments with funk and soul here, and the Coverdale/Hughes duo proves to be more than capable of replacing Gillan. "Mistreated" and the title track are probably the biggest standouts, but the album as a whole is a highly satisfying listen.
The best of the 3 albums the band has recorded with Coverdale on vocals. Overall, there are some decent songs with regular moments of inspiration and virtuosity.Recommended tracks: ''Burn'', ''Mistreated'', ''Sail Away'', ''You Fool No One''
