Not Quite Machine Head But Plenty Good

I've been intrigued by the musical history of hard rockers Deep Purple. I found the Mark 1 Version intriguing with its psychedelic touches. However the slam bam tones of the Mark Two era really rocks my world. Ian Gillian was one legendary vocalist.

However band tension led to Gillian(as well as Roger Glover) departing. Nonetheless, Mark 3 Deep Purple was born with the strong vocals of David Coverdale(with Glenn Hughes nicely on the harmonies). Deep Purple varied its sound somewhat on this Burn Release. There are plenty of strong Ritchie Blackmore guitar riffs. However there are some lighter piano touches in addition to the creative organ touches from Jon Lord. Also the drumming is pretty noteworthy particularly on You Fool No One.

The title track, Burn is clearly the best song. Super energy, strong vocals and super solos by both Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore. Many of the other songs are quite catchy as well.

Maybe Burn isn't quite on the level of Machine Head, but it comes pretty darn close. Its just a little less heavy but plenty creative.
