Of course there may be fans who don't like 'Now What?! Deep Purple wouldn't have survived this long if they had struggled along aping their early selves. So, 'In Rock' and 'Machine Head' are and will always be milestones, but people need to know that their 'heroes' are still alive and kicking to keep on loving them as ever. There's very little to add about 'Now What?! Stupendously played and sung and energically produced.
Over four and a half decades Deep Purple got us used to a surprise after another sometimes good, sometimes bad , but this album really came as the nicest of all. It could be their swansong I don't believe so though, and I hope not , but to put it with the words of another famous rock band from the seventies: 'it's got the magic touch'.
I'm sure also Mr. Lord would agree were he still among us. Thank you Mr. However you look at it, that is harsh; but there we are. All great bands have a legacy to protect, and I prefer to thank them for continuing to play for the love of it, rather than bemoaning that they may not be as awesome as they were as men in their 20s. There are a few standouts for me on this fine record - opener "A Simple Song", "Weirdistan", "Vincent Price" Morse makes some great spooky guitar sounds , and the best song of them all, "Uncommon Man"; a great song by any standards, from any era.
Well, it's like this I first saw Deep Purple live in and have been a fan ever since. As with most bands from that era who are still recording and touring Purple have changed over the years both in line-up and style.
One of the reasons that they are still around is their ability to adapt to these changes and this album proves the point for me. As with most 'prog rock' albums this one takes time to get into, but once you are there it is well worth the effort. There is a very refreshing feel to the album, the tracks are all different and there are certainly no fillers. It is well written, well performed and well produced.
Time does not affect instrumentalists in the way that it does singers and Gillan's vocal range has understandably narrowed in latter years. However the writing on this album clearly takes this into account and Gillan puts in a performance that is still right up there with the best. I delayed this review until after their concert in Manchester last week so I could see how he handled the new material and in my opinion he is as good on stage as he is on the album - if not better.
Not sure that there is such a thing as 'classic Deep Purple' but this album is unmistakably Deep Purple and it is very very good. Can't wait for the next album and tour now! Dipping my toe in Purple at last, I opted for this as it was on offer, and I'm a cheapskate I was wary about the "older" band trying things they perhaps couldn't do anymore, but wow, they still can give it some!
This felt like a full on tour of rock through the last forty years or so, with the ever present metal style guitar, drums and bass as a firm platform, from which Prog rock organ blooms frequently Honestly, it's a dead ringer for Emerson, Lake And Palmer from time to time.
But they don't overdo it, and keep things tight, and thumping along. Gillan can still push the higher notes as much as I'm sure they push him these days , and maybe it's the presence of Bob Ezrin producing that makes a few of these guitar solos ring with Division Bell -era Pink Floyd tones.
This is an amazing album and remastered at last. Note that the original master was horrible. It's rare that a remaster sounds better than the original. But this is a rare moment where it's preferred.
I do recommend this album cause it's a gem. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Translate all reviews to English. I purchased this vinyl album over 3 years ago and have now actually got round to playing it for the first time.
I think I must have mis filed it as I have a large collection. I have read many previous reviews of this album which report jumping, skipping ,noise, distortion and poor remastering. I am normally one of the first to complain about such issues but I have to say my copy is perfect. The pressing is really good with next to no surface noise. I play vinyl on a very high end system which is ruthlessly revealing and if there were any faults they would certainly be evident. As for the music absolutely brilliant.
Virtually every track is a gem. Translate review to English. The rest of the album is not that memorable - but still carries the Gallagher poise and self-confidence. But this commercial peak will never be reached again.
One person found this helpful. I had the first print bought me when I was 9 years old, we had our house decorated a few years ago and since then I cannot find it! I purchased this copy as the price was to much for the first print and to be honest this copy sounds even better in my opinion, the crispness in sound is jawdropping and that's why I have given it 5 stars.
It is absolutely fantastic to hear it again on vinyl as I am a big fan of Oasis. When originally released, two versions were rejected by Alan McGee. They finally got it right and the rest is history. So many sounds missing, and many others appearing which just make it sound shocking compared to the original.
