Deep Purple - Stormbringer (1988) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
Stormbringer (1974.) Deep Purple's ninth studio album.When Deep Purple recruited a replacement for this recently-departed second vocalist, Ian Gillan, very few people thought that the band would be able to bring in a suitable replacement. With 1974's Burn, the band laid those doubts to rest permanently with their new vocalist David Coverdale. And not long after releasing Burn, the band did another album with Coverdale - Stormbringer. How does it measure up? Read on and find out.Stormbringer is kicked off with the title track. This is excellent classic hard rock, with keyboards thrown in for amore… very nice effect. It's an good opener, and it grabs your attention. Although the title track was the only really big hit to emerge from the album, the other songs are no less in the quality department. Love Don't Mean A Thing slows things WAY down, and the band dishes out a very bluesy love song. Definitelty not the Deep Purple you're used to hearing, but still good. Holy Man, the album's next track, uses a riff that modern rock band Creed has ripped off god only knows how many times. This is a typical classic rock song - and I mean that in a GOOD way. Hold On is a classic hard rocker similar that uses a sound a number of bands in the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) copied. If you're gonna copy someone, you may as well copy the best! Lady Double Dealer is classic, fast-paced rock music with an unforgettable melody and lyrics. Coverdale's vocals here are killer. With You Can't Do It Right, the band serves of a classic rocker that uses the organ heavily. The chorus vocals are priceless, making this a very strong track. High Ball Shooter uses a rock sound that a number of other bands were going for in the seventies - though Deep Purple does it better than just about anyone else. The Gypsy is a mid-paced rocker with a darker sound to it than the other tracks, but this dark element only makes it better. Closing the album out is Soldier Of Fortune, a bass-heavy classic rock ballad. All in all, another excellent album.At one point, this album was rereleased as an import disc that features this album and its predecessor, Burn, on a single disc. Take my advice - since Stormbringer is hard to find on its own as it is, shell out the extra cash and order the import. You won't regret it. Sure, this album isn't the masterpiece that Burn was, but it's still excellent, and worthy of a rating of 4.5 stars. It's a shame that this tends to be one of Deep Purple's "forgotten" albums, because it really is a good album. It may be a little harder to track down than the other Deep Purple albums, but it's worth it if you can find it. The Deep Purple years were the prime of David Coverdale's musical career, and this album couldn't demonstrate that better.
