|Now this is what I call a comeback!! Mk. 2 returned with the best Deep Purple studio album since IN ROCK. "Knocking At Your Back Door", "Under The Gun", "Mean Streak", the title track, and "Not Responsible" are some of the band's most classic tracks. And Blackmore is truly in his prime. His soloing on this release is simply mind-numbing!!

|Great record....the band somehow recaptured their youth for this one.

|Con este pedazo de album nos hicieron creer que volvían por sus fueros, pero sólo fué un espejismo. Por cierto, y hablando de grupos míticos, ¿os habeis dado cuenta de que en HeavyHarmonies no están los Led Zeppelin?

|THE BEST DEEP PURPLE POST 1972 HANDS DOWN! AMAZING SONGS AND PLAYING FROM ALL IN THE BAND. SOUNDS LIKE THEY HAD SOME FIRE IN THE BLOOD FOR SURE. GREAT PRODUCTION TOO. IT'S A SHINNING TIME PIECE CONSIDERING MOST ALL OF THE HARD ROCK OF THE TIME SUCKED! THIS IS NO CRAPPY L.A. HAIR METAL THIS IS THE REAL DEAL BAR NONE!!!!!!!! ONLY THE ROTH ERA-VAN HALEN CAME CLOSE TO THIS IN THE 80'S IN MY MIND.

|"Perfect Strangers" and "Knockin' at your Back Door" are quite simply modern classics. Some of Deep Purple's best. You gotta love the Jon Lord intro to "Knockin' @ Back Door." And Ritchie Blackmore is a legend ('nuff said). Phenomenal album from one of hard rock's pioneers!

|It's true, you can't go back home. Too many things change. I still listen to this lp but this to me, is not Deep Purple. Take 50% of the '80's bands & replace the 2nd guitar with Hammond organ -BOOM!- it's the same crap over & over. There was no "rawness" to this recording like there is in every DP record befor it. Everything was too polished. Maybe that was a Mercury thing. Who knows? (This could be Ratt with Ken Hensley!) Ian & Ian should've stayed with Gary Moore & Black Sabbath

|Amazing comeback album. One of the best heavy albums of the '80's. Put the newer hair bands to shame. Sounds like they didn't miss a beat. Production is stellar and the playing superb. Blackmore & Lord sound great together again. I love this album!

|One of the best comeback albums put out by anyone. This should not have been a surprise considering how well the individuals were doing in their other bands. The title track and "Knocking At Your Back Door" are among the bands best. 8/10

|What a comeback! I saw these guys on this tour and they did not dissapoint as the album did not either. Good heavy edge.

|The only Deep Purple album i own , i´m not the biggest Purple fan but this a killer record. I found a tape with it that someone had thrown away and had to buy the cd later.no fillers here only great tunes , maybe it´s more comercial than the previous ones , but to me it´s the best DP album ever.If anyone wishes to trade opinions email me at email@example.com

|Buen regreso de los veteranos del Hardrock. Ian Gillan no es de mis cantantes preferidos, y es que soy fan de Deep Purple apartir del "burn" ya que estaban los grandes Hughes y Coverdale. "knocking at your back door" tremendo tema y el mejor de este buen disco al igual que "perfect strangers". El resto entre regular y bueno. Blackmore inmenso en algunos solos. Buen disco. 8/10

|Un clasico! el mejor hardrock que los padres del genero hicieron para su retorno en plenos 80`s, refinando un poco su clasico rock con teclados 70`s. "Knocking at Your Back Door","Under the Gun" y "Perfect Strangers" asssu!!!furiosas muestras de genialidad, de lejos las mejores canciones del disco. infaltable 9/10

|A decent and quiet Record,nothing to jump outta bed,sorry guys but is a matter of tastes(and kinda hard for me to say as i started listening to Rock music thanks to this lot) ...tracks 6 & 8 are good ones but the rest even though could be edgy here and there but mellow-ish at the end...as usual,the keyboards are the mark of the band ...70/100
