Deep Purple in Rock [Bonus Tracks]

( 4 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
After satisfying all of their classical music kinks with keyboard player Jon Lord's overblown Concerto for Group and Orchestra, Deep Purple's soon-to-be classic Mark II lineup made their proper debut on 1970s awesome Deep Purple in Rock. The cacophony of sound led by Ritchie Blackmore's blistering guitar solo, which introduces the opener "Speed King," makes it immediately obvious that the band is no longer fooling around. The slightly less intense "Bloodsucker" allows for some breathing room before the band embarks on the album's epic, ten-minute tour de force "Child in Time." In what is arguably his greatest performance, singer Ian Gillan leads the band on a series ...

After satisfying all of their classical music kinks with keyboard player Jon Lord's overblown Concerto for Group and Orchestra, Deep Purple's soon-to-be classic Mark II lineup made their proper debut on 1970s awesome Deep Purple in Rock. The cacophony of sound led by Ritchie Blackmore's blistering guitar solo, which introduces the opener "Speed King," makes it immediately obvious that the band is no longer fooling around. The slightly less intense "Bloodsucker" allows for some breathing room before the band embarks on the album's epic, ten-minute tour de force "Child in Time." In what is arguably his greatest performance, singer Ian Gillan leads the band on a series of crescendos, from the song's gentle beginning through to its ear-shattering climax, and back again to an even more intense encore. With searing power chords, "Flight of the Rat" is another example of the band's new hard-rock stance; though at nearly eight minutes, it too finds room for some extended soloing from Blackmore and Lord. "Into the Fire" and "Living Wreck" are more concise but equally appealing, and despite the closer "Hard Lovin' Man," which waffles on a bit before descending into feedback, this is still an essential album. [This version of the album includes bonus material.]

    Godfathers of heavy metal

    This is the band that more than any other band helped to shape the heavy metal genre. Pure rock n roll agresion. Led Zeppelin may have invented hardrock but Deep Purple sure as hell perfected it and defined it much better than Zep did. The rifs and solos just sound so to the point and Ian Gillan shouting vocals sound a lot better than Robert Plant's high-pitched shriek. No rock collection can be without this album.

    Rock rules!

    This is a real hard rock album! Vocals are well done. It isn't miracle that Deep Purple is popular. "Child in Time" is an excellent 10-minute ballad song which has great vocals. Speed king is full "let's go and party" -song. It makes me rock. Bloodsucker is very classic one. I think it's sad that this track isn't popular. It has great lyrics. Into the Fire is also fine.
