Kicks serious ass. Smoke On The Water is not the only attraction or even the main one - the awesome opener highway star is a rock masterpiece, followed by 6 (or more if you have 25th anniversary collection) more brilliant songs. Deep Purple at their best. The only song I have a problem with is Pictures Of Home - a bit bland. However, lazy makes up for this by having the best organ and guitar solos ever (well, probably).

Great. Gillan proves once again that he is a master of rock vocals and produces some lyrics that suit the music perfectly. Not really much more to say about that.
Overall Impression — 10
One of the top 10 albums of all time, and I have a lot of albums. The bets songs, which if you dont but the album you should at least download, are Lazy, Highway Star And Never Before (funkiest guitar part ever). If it were stolen, I would go on a blood rampage and kill everyone in the world until I got it back. It's that good. There is no reason why any rock fan shouldn't love this album, so go buy it now!
