Sound: This album is one of the best Purple albums to date. This was recorded with the 1974 line-up of Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, John Lord and Ian Paice. Classic rock songs like Stormbringer and High Ball Shooter sound great, then there is mor bluesy tunes such as Soldier Of Fortune and Holy Man. Band sounds excellent on every single track. // 9

Lyrics: All the lyrics on this album are sung by David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes except on Holy Man which is sung by Glenn Hughes and Soldier Of Fortune which is sung by David Coverdale. The lyrics go with the music very well, especially on the Stormbringer track which sounds fantastic. David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes are very unique singers and sound excellent on this album. // 9

Overall Impression: This album is much better than the Burn album which was released in the same year as this. The most impressive songs for me are Stormbringer, Holy Man and High Ball Shooter. If it were lost or stolen I would buy this album again for sure. // 9
