I had this album bought for me for christmas when I was about 13/14. It was my request having heard it on radio luxembourg. In 1970 people didn't constant exposure to much apart from 'family favourites' or 'the clitheroe kid' so when I played this album on my dansette Christmas afternoon the whole family went into apoplexy. Their reaction just obviously increased my affection for this album which remains to this day. Speed king starts the album with a massive cacaphony of sound driven by RBs frenetic guitar and JLs massive organ sound. (oh, er. sorry) then moves into the driving blues rock that marked Deep Purple out from the chaff. 2nd is bloodsucker recently reintroduced to the live set. 3rd Child in time One of the first anthems of rock predating Stairway I believe. 4th Flight of the rat a hugely riff laden song often forgotten and underated by many 5th Into the fire a slower bluesy rocker 6th Living wreck which opened my eyes to a life I was still to taste the classic lines "You came along for the weekend, But you only stayed for one night, You took off your hair, you took out your teeth, I almost died of fright." 7th Hard lovin' man this is really beutifully heavy but descends back into the choas that Speed King was born from. Throughout the album you have the driving rhythm section of Ian Paice and Roger Glover which has rarely been bettered. The soaring vocals of Ian Gillan who must rate in anybodies top three vocalists. Jon Lord a better player than virtually all others although perhaps not the showman that a Keith Emerson or a Rick Wakeman was. And then finally Ritchie Blackmore, mean, moody, argumentative, probably the best guitarist of his age including EC and JP. Even the faces imposed on Mount Rushmore seemed to add to the anti-establishment feel. This should be in anybodies top ten albums to buy. It switched me on to nearly 40 years of listning to rock music in it's many guises, but one I still return to regulaly. Keith Parfett

Deep purple's first album with their new line-up was a dramatic change to their earlier releases. Deep Purple, their last album was in comparison a very mellow record (even so another superb album), and does not really sound like the predecessor to In Rock. A truly explosive sound from start to finish, and definitely THE pivotal hard-rock album of the seventies. Perhaps a very under-rated track is Living Wreck as I have not seen anything written about it anywhere...those who haven't got this album are missing out purely on that song.
If it's riffs, solos, bass lines, lyrical genius you're looking for, it's written everywhere, all over this album. Not much more to say than a truely great sound.....one to have for sure.

This album deserves recognition for the way its stunning power, volume and energy completely blew away practically anything people had heard at the time, and perhaps even moreso that you can play it to modern metal/hard rock fans and they will often be blown away by the same qualities. Superb, musical performances all round from perhaps the highest quality hard rock band ever. Combining monster riffs, insane solos, and musical passages, In Rock gets closer to Deep Purple's live, raw sound than any of their others. In my mind this makes it Deep Purple's best studio album.
Into the Fire and Bloodsucker are big as a house and showed many groups the way to Metal.
Speed King, Child in Time, Flight of the Rat and Hard Lovin' Man are superb adrenaline-fuelled bouts of hard rock/rock 'n' roll on speed.
Living Wreck is lighter than the others, but really grooves, and still hold power.
No weak tracks, plenty of variety within the album, and yet it seriously ROCKS throughout.
If you really like this, and want to hear more of Deep Purple from this era, look out for 'Live in Stockholm', for similar tunes, but further soloing and Deep Purple character

One for the heavy rock fan. To my mind the best Deep Purple album. Jon Lord's organ playing inspired me to take up keyboards - I love the chunky percussive Hammon on Child in Time. I was saddened to hear that he dies this year. Concerto for Group and Orchestra is still on my regular play list. 4 stars because I'm not wild about every track but still a great album IMHO.

Tons of material has been added to the re-mastered version, make sure you get that version!!

A very nice job, too! Much improved sound over the old version of this CD, it really comes to life. Extensive liner notes to busy the listener as vintage 1970 hard rock issues forth. "Into The Fire"!

I keep my Harvest UK LP of this title, with it's wonderful sleeve and decent pressing. I wonder why the American version has a different track order?

I can readily defend this album after all these years - sounds great, really good songs - very "heavy" sound.

Deep Purple have opther very, very good albums - but give this one a try if you're wondering which mid-line CD to try.

Its impossible to put this release in any other way! Hard rocking from start to finish. When this issue came out in 95 I listened to it non stop for 8 months. Don't even think about buying it, just buy it. Hard rock at its best, possibly the standard ALL hard rock albums should be judged by.

'DEEP PURPLE IN ROCK'is the first and the greatest Purple album.This cd version also has a bonus selection of humourous studio chat in between different versions of some of the original seven tracks found on vinyl.Also 'Black Night'has been added to make the first seven into eight.A masterpiece from a brilliant group of musicians.A must for lovers of Hard Rock/Seventies music.BUY,BUY,BUY!!!!!!!!
