4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Exploring...a great memory of a pretty good band!!, 23 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Double Trouble (Audio CD)
Now, I will admit I have a slight soft spot for Gillan, as they were the first "proper" band I went to see live at the tender age of 13. This was to be their last tour, promoting the "Magic" album with Janick Gers on guitar, and they were (I seem to remember) very good.

I found some of their earlier stuff a little difficult to get into, but this album, Double Trouble was a regular on my record player. The studio side has some great tracks on it, including "Born to kill", which is an absolute epic! Now, you have to appreciate that Gillan were NOT your run of the mill metal band, and as such, you will always get a certain amount of "experimentation". With such a talented keyboard player and song writer in Colin Towns, there are some "different" (?!) moments, which will not appeal to everyone. There are some heavy songs, some more "poppy" songs, and of course, the singles "Nightmare" and "Restless", which are great.

The live side is also pretty good. Quite a lot is from their Reading Festival appearances, and I think captures them pretty well - if my memory serves me correctly!! Faves include "No Easy Way" and "If you believe me", which has some stunning bluesy guitar work on it.

The extras on this re-issued version are for the most part largely forgettable but, I always liked "On the rocks" anyway, so it is worth it for that alone as far as I am concerned.

A good memory of a pretty good band, so if you like Gillan anyway, this is worth shelling out a few quid on.
