3.0 out of 5 stars Re-machined 10 Sep 2012
By Phil On
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's not as bad as I thought it was gonna be.

There are some "regular" versions; both HS, Maybe I'm a Leo, never before and Lazy, all in a rather "classic" rock/blues/heavy format; and then the surprises... Good and very bad...

Chickenfoot's version of Highway Star is a good rockin Live rendition of the song, although it is a bit chaotic, while the Hughes/Vai version is very powerful, swingin and cleaner and benefits of a great intro. Both versions are good.

Maybe I'ma Leo has a good funky groove added to it, thanks to (again) Hughes and Chad Smith. Very good version.

BLS version of Pictures of Home is somehow in a balladesque mood, which surprised me at first, but I like the fact that they gave it another go. It's rather well done.

Never Before is nicely performed by top musicians Joe Elliot, Matt Sorum, steve Stevens and Duff McKagan. Well done.

Both SotW are awful, especially Santana's, I cannot stand his addition to the opening riff, I immediatly have to press "next" before the intro is over.

I think Flaming Lips 's version is good in its own world of experimentation (think Residents or Kraftwerk) but has nothing to do on this-rather rock- tribute album.

Lazy is a battlefield for guitars and organ. Bonamassa shines. Extremely well executed solos and vocals (Jimmy Barnes), but the rhythm section is just not swingin' at all...It just doesn't groove the way it should.

Maiden's Space truckin is just awful. You can just feel that they couldn't care less and recorded in between two mojito's. The sound is just awful too, especially the sound of the drums-sounds like it's been taken with just the over-heads.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear. 8 April 2014
By MJ
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this because of Steve Vai doing Highway Star docu/clip on youtube, bigging up Purple and his cover version. Yet on purchase I find he's not even on the album, WTF!
Its an ok album, but not what I expected.
Recommend it to people who haven't heard the original, which is still better.

3.0 out of 5 stars GET THE FANPACK NOT THIS ONE! 22 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
There are some moderate covers but the best is to buy the fanpack as you get a magazine with all the background history of the making of the album, some rare photos and most importantly you get the bonus of 'Highway Star' with Steve Vai, Glenn Hughes and Chad Smith. It is a cracking interpretation of the track as Vai's guitar works off the 'Made In Japan' version of the track which was always superior in any case.

4.0 out of 5 stars great tribute 13 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
some excellent new versions of classic songs, for example two totally different takes on "smoke on the water", both great for different reasons, ideal for deep purple fans or just rock fans in general

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing!!! 11 Jan 2013
By Ecky
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With names such as: Santana, Bonamassa, Iron Maiden and Metallica. - I couldn't wait to hear the album. And they did not diasppoint. Deep Purple and their loyal followers should be well pleased.
However, the pathetic attempt at 'Smoke On The Water' by The Flamimg Lips completely ruined a classic track and the cd as a whole - disgraceful!!! They should be ashamed of themselves. What were the producers thinking? Everyone accepts it should not be an exact copy of the original. But, they totally trashed one of the all time great rock tracks!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album 22 Oct 2012
By New fan
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is a tribute album and not supposed to be carbon copies of the original, so all those extra licks and twists are brought in to put individual spins on great tracks.

I've been a DP fan since I can't remember when and was brought up on the band. This tribute is just that, a tribute to one of DP's classics. The only track I can't get my head around is the Flaming Lips version of Smoke.

This is a great album, enjoy it for what it is.
