Sound: This album was recorded in 1973 and released in 1974. The sound quality is second to none. Recorded with the Mark III line-up of Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. Very good classic rock examples on this album such as Burn and Might Just Take Your Life. Good keyboard work from Jon Lord on the "A" 200 track. The "A" 200 track is a very futuristic sort of song. A very highly listenable album. // 8

Lyrics: All the vocals are sung by David Coverdal and Glenn Hughes, except on the Mistreated track which is sung by David Coverdale alone. The vocals match the music very well on this album. What can I say David Coverdale & Glenn Hughes always sound fantastic. // 9

Overall Impression: This album is album is probably not quite as good as the Stormbringer album, which was released in the same year as Burn. Still a good album though, I enjoy listening to it. The most impressive songs for me on this album are Burn, Might Just Take Your Life and "A" 200. If it were lost or stolen I would buy this CD again for sure. Great effort from the band on all of thier albums! // 8
