|Deep Purple From Worst to Best albums 2018
I did this in 2016 (i guess). Now, i had to rewrite my own ranking.
Slaves and Masters
This album kinda grew on me, at least the three first tracks. Then, it falls directly to the bottom. Lynn Turner and co are just below par.
The main reason is the fact you can´t hardly remember a single track after listening to it. And the overwhelmingly innecesary Bludsucker.
Yeah, same case, is a good listen, but after listening to it, it gets hard to remember a tune. And hey, i do like Mk. VIII a lot.
The House of Blue Light
Second disc syndrome. After the great comeback, fights arouse and they made a forgettable record, with the exception of Strangeways and Mitzi Dupree.
The Battle Rages On...
The most painful record to make. They were miserable while making this, almost forced to reunite. At least we had Anya. Still, they sounded fresher.
Shades of Deep Purple
The beggining. It is a recommendable listen only if you are a hard core fan and want to hear them search for their sound. Hush is a killer cover by the way and Mandrake Root showcases glimpses of their power.
I liked this record so much, but it had to fall a couple of positions. the Lord´s tributes are fantastic and Vincent Price is really great.
Who Do We Think We Are
Easily the weakest seventies work. They were exhausted.
Rapture of the Deep
Proof that Mk. VIII is an awesome band. Rapture highlights how good is Steve Morse.
Amazing piece of work. They never felt that vulnerable and self conscious. All i Got is You and The Surprising are standouts here.
Come Taste the Band
Inside the top 10, the Tommy Bolin record. Yes, they were less DP than ever, but heck, they sounded great. Keep on Moving is unbelievable good though.
Last time i did this, many wanted this record higher. I tried, but i liked the others a little bit more. Anyway, Stormbringer is a helluva record.
The Book of Taliesyn
When i started to really listen DP, Mk I made a mark on me. I truly enjoy the whole record here, with Hard Road as the true birth for the DP sound.
What a comeback when everyone thought DP was dead. Fresher, newer, Purpendicular was spectacular. Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming.
Epic, truly epic. They were still the same awesomeness, and yet, "modernized" for the eighties.
The DP record with the worst of luck. It is, spite what even they say, and incredible work. Listen to Fools. You are welcome.
I don´t get why this album doesn´t get any recognition. I get, it didn´t sell well back then, but it was not the record´s fault. This one is brilliant. Every beat of it.
What can i say. Burn is of epic proportions. And the song Burn is probably my favorite DP song of all.
The perfect record. Nough said.
Deep Purple In Rock
Formerly the runner up, In Rock is one of the main milestones of music. Any rocker SHOULD love this album.
