Not as dissapointed as i thought i'd be.,
This review is from: Stormbringer (35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
I'll make it clear that i'm not the biggest fan of Stormbringer, it came out at a difficult time in my life and it just never clicked. I had it on vinyl (still got it) and twice on cassette (binned years ago) I saw purple on the Burn tour and had followed then since In Rock. I loved Burn but Stormbringer just dissapointed me on so many levels. Don't start me on Come Taste the Band, i have it on vinyl and hate it, always have.
I've bought all the remasters and liked them all so i just thought i've got nothing to lose as i have an SACD/DVD-A player so at least it'll be interesting. And i have to say although i still dont rate it it's far better than i expected, the quad mix is good but dated to modern day multi-channel mixes. Yes theres no hi-res, but i have a few true DVD-A discs that sound worse than this so it's no real loss.
Strangely i now think Holy Man is the best track on it, and i can remember hating it when the album came out.
I think if you know the album but like me wasn't going to bother then have a re-think, you might be surprised.
