Deep Purple were given powerful and strong melodic album. Stronger than the previous one. Fathers do not disappoint!

To say disappointed would be an understatement. From the hype I was expecting a return to form, from what should be the classic rock band to end all. To put it simply classic hard rock is not policital or meant to have deep messages, but it should have killer riffs, innovative guitar solos and backing tracks to keep you interested after two repeat plays. This album has none of these!!. It most certainly is not an album of the class of Made In Japan or Perfect Strangers as per the sticker found on the front cover.

Despite having a great producer and talented songwriters on board, Gillan & Co. produce a distinctly average album after seven years. Steve Morse, a man of great ability, struggles to put his stamp on the proceedings. The obligatory organ-solo on 'Hell To Pay' is rather decorative, and a throwback to the worse of 1970s sympho-rock excess. Gillan rarely pushes his voice to his full range, unless it is highly stylised like on 'Above and Beyond'. That said 'Body Line' is a nice blues-rocker where Morse finally lets lose and the opener 'A Simple Song' has an excellent intro as does 'Uncommon Man'. Highlight is 'Blood from a Stone' which has a nice groove and Gillan digs deeper then before with Airy's organ playing a more integral part to the song. A tentative glimpse of Gillan's higher range is given on 'Aprez Vous' (sic) but the use of vocal effects is disconcerting. The hard-rock of 'Vincent Price' about the American horror actor is one of the album's redeeming factors, and almost sounds like a Black Sabbath song. Lyrically, the album disappoints and fails to bring a consistent theme. Overall, the album never really surpasses expectation and the title really says it all, indifference.

Deep Purple are Legends of Heavy Rock and let's not forget that.
The sheer musicianship and grandiose skill of Messiah's Blackmore,Lord,Paice,Glover and Gillan in the MKII line up and the classic albums such as In Rock,Fireball,Machine Head and Made in Japan etc will be forever etched into everyone's Hard Rock memory.
Deep Purple although still going strong are not getting any younger but the full force of there Live Shows and Aggresive in your Face style Hard Rock of the 70's has long passed and now the Band has become a Touch of Grey and are now more of a mellowed out Band.
NOW WHAT!! is a very good album and is a lot better and Ian Gillan seems to have reached his more mellowed vocal range and is not the screamer of old which is understandable.
Ian Paice still has the skill and so does Don Airey for the Solo's on the Album.
Hell to Pay is a good track sounds like the Deep Purple of old and Don Airey is definitely a brilliant keyboardist and who was always going to be the perfect replacement for Jon Lord (RIP).
Although a very good album, i think judging by there past catalogue this album will become like all the other albums with Steve Morse and forgotten very quickly unlike the MKII and MKIII line ups which are the albums that define Deep Purple and are forever etched into your Heavy Rock Memory.
Jon Lord can be replaced but Ritchie Blackmore NEVER!!!!!!
Although a very good album Deep Purple are not the force of old but i would still pay to go and see them live for Nostalgia's sake.

I have listened to the new album 3 or 4 times and you have a thoroughly decent album but it is not a good album.

As with previous recent Deep Purple releases Ian Paice is on normal good form as are Roger Glover, Steve Morse and Don Airey.

The same problem still exists Ian Gillan's voice has gone and no amount of terrible layering, keyboards and guitars doing some of the work or vocal effects or even backing singers can cover this up. As long as Ian Gillan does not try his voice sounds alright and that is the problem with the vocals on this album Ian Gillan very rarely puts much effort in he is only going through the motions.

Bob Ezrin did his best to produce a good album and apart from the vocals he has done a pretty good job and there is nothing he can do about those.

Compared to Rapture of the Deep or Live at Montreux 2011 it is good
Compare it to Perfect Strangers or House of Blue Light it is not bad but it also is not a good album.
Compare it to Machine Head or In Rock and you hear how very far they have slipped from their peek
