So you've got three bands, all from the U.K., all producing this high-octane distillation of blues and distortion that would soon be called heavy metal. Zeppelin were by far the most eclectic, and Sabbath refined its sound until it became a crushing steamroller of sound, and then there was Deep Purple, who not only sought to become masters of the riff but also often steered their band into improvisational areas previously occupied by jazz/rock (Miles especially) fusion bands, and maybe King Crimson. On Made in Japan, you can hear that risk-taking right up close and personal, especially on "Space Truckin'" and "Child in Time". On this edition, you also get the encores: two early rock 'n' roll covers and Purple's own "Black Night" (worth the price of the album itself) in addition to the expertly remastered sound. So what are you waiting for, you little youngling who thinks that metal begins and ends with Priest or Van Halen? Get this, and find out what the true foundations of metal are.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
