This band's lost the magic!!!

From: wicked man Date: June 30, 2004 at 11:38
In my opinion this is the Deep Purple's best with Steve Morse on guitar. I love it! Morse has a killer tone and the band is finally back to their roots: 70's hard rock at its best! Yes, there is not Lord anymore but Don Airey does a great job and reminds me more Keith Emerson than Jon Lord (especially in Picture of innocence - a GREAT progressive rock song!). Not a single filler, go and buy it!! You'll love it! 10 out of 10!!

OK release. Deep Purple's best days may be behind them, but "Haunted" is an absolute standout, one of the best ballads this band (or any band for that matter) has ever done. It's very... well, haunting. A bit of a departure from the DP norm, it's Beth Hart's backing vocals that make the track. The rest of the CD picks up where Abandon left off. "Doing It Tonight" is a fun song, but this CD pales in contrast to "Perpendicular", Deep Purple's crowning achievement in their post-Blackmore twilight.

Purple light's still shining bright!!!Great Album, nothing to add

From: Ratt72 Date: September 5, 2004 at 1:49
Itīs a sadly mellower album.Morse try to carry the band foward but unfortunelly Gillan,Glover and Paice are not the same musicians they used to be.they still rocks on live perfomances, but they can't write nothing interesting anymore!!!

From: Rycheage Date: September 25, 2004 at 13:25
Their best days definitely behind them, we get an OK release from Deep Purple. Agreeing with koogles, "Haunted" is by far the best track on this mediocre album. There are some "retro" moments here which gives the listener the "feel" of older and more classic Deep Purple but never quite reaches that status. It seems that if they gave it that extra mile of trying, then we would be talking classic here, but sadly it falls short.

Come on, guys! This one's a little weak but I still like it.

From: scarecrow Date: January 7, 2005 at 15:03
as a fan i reaully couldn't find anythink to touch. i want the way of their early years back.

From: Giouri_G Date: February 5, 2005 at 9:43
I found this one very good. A alasy work from Purple. Still I like Blackmore era more. 7.5/10

From: Giouri_G Date: February 5, 2005 at 9:45
Classy work i meant

From: masmusic Date: March 29, 2005 at 12:50
Stupid name for a Cd title but great release. These guys can still rock!!

From: Chris Date: May 4, 2005 at 16:04
Not their best album of course but a great snapshot of an awesome veteran band in 2004. Gillan's lyrics are funny and intelligent, Morse's playing is robust as always plus Airey fits in really well with a lot of tasteful Lord-esque solos. Pictures Of Home, Bananas, Doing It Tonight and the blues-epic Walk On are the stand-out tracks for me. For all the critics out there, if Sabbath and Zeppelin were around today would they produce an album of this quality in 2004? I think not! All hail Purple!
