|Steve Morse: The best thing could happen to Deep Purple!
||Date: December 2, 2001 at 17:19|
|This is Deep Purple at their absolute best! Eclectic, progressive, melodic and challenging music awaits you here. Steve Morse has ignited a fire in Purple that is blazing hot. Just pick it up and hear it for yourself. You will be blown away!

|This is a fabulous Deep Purple record. Apparently guitarist Steve Morse sparked a bit of a fire under the band's butt. This album comes 28 years after the band's inception and is the most creative Deep Purple record of the 90's, and possibly the 80's as well. OK, nothing will be able to surpass "Machine Head" but this one is pretty darn good. Check out the finger snapping, head busting "Hey Ciso," or the acoustic "The Aviator," or the guarantee-to-be-a classic "Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming."

|Superb. Morse..............Uhhh he's fantastic.

|This one's a mixed bag in my opinion. On the one hand, you have some great songs like "The Aviator" and "A Touch Away". But then on the other hand, you have some tracks that just meander aimlessly and aren't the least bit appealing. Steve Morse is a fine replacement for Ritchie Blackmore. It's just too bad that the album couldn't be a little more consistant.

|Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming is, in my opinion, one of the best compositions in rock ever! An absolute delight of brethtaking guitar melodies, awsome progressions and godlike singing from Gillan. The whole album is a true jewel!

|GREAT CD FROM A GREAT BAND. STEVE MORSE IS NOT RITCHIE BLACKMORE BUT HAS HIS OWN STYLE OF LEAVING HIS MARK AS ANOTHER GREAT GUITAR PLAYER. SIMPLY AWESOME.

| Noone had expected a Deep Purple revival after Blackmore's Departure and I was no exception...But Purpendicular is simply the best thing would ever happen to the band at this point. Blessed with a totally fresh sound, and enthusiastic playing, Deep Purple delivers a different product to all their prior releases. Steve Morse's input in this album is massive! Apparently the album's most stellar moments is where Morse makes his statement.

| (continue) He also manages to merge his beautiful uplifting melodic ''clean guitar'' licks with Purples natural heavy pentatonic riffs which have been always the trademark of the band. For me that is a feat, cause someone who has been a Morse fan from his solo releases and a Deep purple fan can still individually recognize that it's Steve Morse there playing and correspondingly that this is a Deep Purple release.

|Highlights are ''Loosen my strings'', '' Aviator'', ''a touch away'' and the best song for 1996, the lovely ''Sometimes I feel Like Screaming''. Get it!

|Comeback Kids! Steve reenergizes the band and what geniouses they are. Very good tasty stuff.

|Without a doubt the best cd of the four studio ones offered by Deep Purple mark ? lineup with Morse on guitar. A breath of fresh air & great ideas on this one. Surely as good as anything the band had done in the 80's overall & nearly essentail to any hard rock collection.
||Date: January 24, 2011 at 21:21|
|Very hard for me to like Deep Purple without Blackmore, However Loosen my strings is great. total honesty haven't given this too many listens and all lineups have their moments so make up your own mind.

|I bought that album after becoming a fan through my parents (big DP fans) when it was new. I don't like it. There are 3 great songs here: Soon Forgotten, Loosen my Strings and Sometimes I feel like screaming. Everything else is mediocre. People always say that Steve Morse brought so much fresh wind into the band, but i don't see it. Purpendicular isn't great, Abandon sucks, after that it got a little better but it's so far behind the Mark 2 & 3 stuff.

|I've never been a huge fan of this band (except 1990). Maybe due to Gillan's voice or the music that is firmly stuck in 1970s (at that time I was too young to suck up such music). On the other hand I must admit this group formed the basis of hard rock and therefore I have a deep respect for them. Despite a new guitar player whose style is different (warmer and more tender) to that of his predecessor this album is mainly about old hard rock with occasional touches of blues, psychedelic, folk or jazz. Good standard. 70/100.
