5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply Spiritual, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Earth Blues (Limited Edition) (Audio CD)
I've been waiting for this album for what seems like forever.Was it worth the wait? You betcha!
Everything about this album screams Deep Purple MKIII. The interplay of guitar( Michael Amott) and keyboards (Per Wiberg) is reminicent of Lord and Blackmore and close your eyes and vocalist Apollo Papathanasio could be mistaken for early Coverdale. Sharlee D'Angelo (bass) and Ludwig Witt (drums) are a fine engine room that allow Amott and Wiberg to play off of each other far more than they have on previous albums.This is not to say that Spiritual Beggars are Deep Purple copyists or should be seen as a ripping off the MK III sound,no the band stamp their own personalities all over this album.Amott's guitar solo's are more blues based in structure than Blackmore's more neo-classical style. and Wilberg's keyboards have a more prog influenced edge than Lord's more jazzy,boogie woogie feel.
For me this the best album of their career so far!
P.S. If you get the limited edition you get a disc of the album Back To Live-Loud Park 2010 which was only released in Japan prior to this.Well worth the extra few pence!
