3.0 out of 5 stars So frustrating 24 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album contains some of the best classic rock songs ever by one of the best bands ever. However, if you have a look at the track listings you'll notice it consists of single edits and remixes. I have absolutely no idea why they would include versions that have been cut down for radio play instead of the full versions. It may have been to save space for more tracks but I'd much rather have the full version of "Child In Time" than the filler that appears at the end of the album. It's so frustrating to hear the beginning of a classic Blackmore guitar solo and then listen as it fades out before it's even got going. The album sounds like a sample CD. Don't get me wrong, there are still some great tracks here but you should buy a different complilation or an original album like "Machinehead" or "In Rock" instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Less is more 4 Jun 2004
By Aj Viljoen VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
How can the best music from one of the best bands of all time not make a fantastic Greatest Hits album? If you tamper with the music, that's how.
I listened to this and somehow didn't feel right. The CD gathered dust for more than a year, and when I "rediscovered" it, didn't feel like playing it. "Made in Japan" however...
The simple fact is that Deep Purple's music should be listened to the way it was intended to. I still maintain that their live albums are their best albums. Check out the excellent digitally remastered "Made in Japan" CD, or check out the DVD section. This one is best avoided.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's this? 11 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
Actually ,this is not such a bad compilation.Quite a good cross section of Purple's body of work.The only downside is that I recently heard Speed King ( off 'In Rock' )so I bought this cd thinking it was the original version but somehow some bright spark had the idea of planting a demo type format on here.What a swizz.Also the track 'Child in Time'(which I always thought went on a bit anyway)is faded just as Blackmore is about to rip into his solo.This track may have been stretched out before but this is sacriledge.The solo being the best bit and all.Mind bogglin'.

1.0 out of 5 stars please don't bother 22 Feb 2009
By Easty
Format:Audio CD
I agree with some of the reviews. Please, do yourself a favour, avoid this. The best tracks 'fit' on here only because they are re-mixes or have been curtailed. There are plenty of brilliant Purple CD's on Amazon - just don't get this. Very dissapointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Less than the sum of it's parts . . . 9 Sep 2003
By David Cranson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Oh dear . . . what idiot tho't this was a good idea. I mean, I'm all for a good and up to date retospective of Purple's career, but why include so much that is remixed, and edited?
This is a hatchet job on at least two levels, and deserves to be avoided at all possible costs.
More of a Light Pink . . .

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best 26 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like Deep Purple, probably best to buy a different collection. Has the expected great songs, but edited. Especially Child In Time - sudden fade out just as that galloping solo comes in. Also a suspicion that Smoke On The Water is faded in right at the opening chord. Mmmm... One for the car boot after I buy a better DP collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gutted by fade out 23 Mar 2011
By Big Daz
Format:Audio CD
I have to agree with the previous reviewer, I too was going to treat myself to 'In Rock' but thought "what they heck, this has all the best bits plus a wealth of other great tracks". How wrong was I? I went straight to Child in Time, cranked up the volume and just as the hairs on the back of my neck were starting to stand up, it fades out! Had the Amazon track listing said 'Edit', I wouldn't have bought this CD and I'd now be enjoying 'In Rock', listening to Child in Time in full and screaming away just like Ian Gillan (but out of tune!!!).
