    Great just Great

    I bought this album when it first came out when I was with the USAF. Brings back great memories when I was in California. Love DP as far back as I can remember.

    Not a Shabby Reunion at All.

    Many people, professional reviewers and laymen alike, have often said that, had Deep Purple never reformed, they would have remained legends forever. I can't really argue against that concept, as I haven't heard any of the Purple albums that followed, with or without Ritchie Blackmore. However, I can tell you that, when my friends and I found out that DP mk. II were going to reunite and cut an album, we were overjoyed, as we'd nearly worn our cassettes of Machine Head out. Perfect Strangers isn't a home run by any means, but it's a damned sight better than many reviewers thought at the time. It's a very consistent collection of songs, with "Perfect Strangers" and "Knocking at your Back Door" the standouts (it took me years to figure out that "Knocking..." was about, well, you know). This is a very respectable effort by the mk. II band, and is certainly nothing to hide or try to live down (those albums would come later; Purple without Blackmore is like the Stones without Keith Richards). If you're not a stone-cold DP fan, there isn't anything here to change your mind. If you're a fan, you've either got this already or are about to get it.
