A masterpiece that should have been longer like an hour.
In my opinion one of Ian Paice’s finest works on drums. The song written by him and Jon Lord would set the standard in what direction the band would take from this point on. This was DP third album that simply reflected their name, it would also be the last album that Nick Simper and lead singer Rod Evans would be on. But make no mistake the talents of both contributed much to the earlier introduction of this band.
