Deep Purple – This Time Around

„Here’s a song for ya!“ Wer schon immer mal herausfinden wollte, warum die Kombination DEEP PURPLE und Tommy Bolin nicht so recht funktionieren konnte oder wollte, findet in »This Time Around« das perfekte Forschungsfeld.

Schon beim Opener ›Burn‹ wird klar, das da irgendwas nicht so läuft, wie es eigentlich sollte: die Gitarrensounds passen nicht zum Songmaterial und die beiden Mikrophonbändiger David Coverdale und Glenn Hughes singen bzw.

Deep Purple – Purpendicular

Wow! Um was für einen kreativen Bremsklotz es sich bei Ritchie Blackmore wirklich gehandelt hat, wurde erst durch „Purpendicular“ richtig deutlich. Zwar ist „Purpendicular“ nicht der Sturm des Jahrhunderts geworden, es weht aber wieder eine herrlich frischen Brise.

Having the same concert shot for video and audio recording added some hope to my mixed feelings – not only IMHO it’s far better to record and publish a complete show in one piece than to cut, copy and paste a so-called live album from the preselected highlights of several different shows.

Deep Purple – Abandon

Deep Purple – Abandon

Purpendicular to me is just a start“ Roger Glover said in an interview back in September 1996. At that time I wasn’t too sure if I should like that idea or not – but after listening to Abandon for about a week now, things have brightened up a lot.

As Stathis wrote in his review, Purpendicular showed a band on its way to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new sounds and melodies, to boldly go where Deep Purple haven’t gone before.
