A legend almost return,
This review is from: Live At Montreux 2011 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This recording can not be compared with the earlier orchestral works of the band. This is a rock consert with a full orchestra and not a classical consert with a rock band. You can always miss the brilliance of Lord/Blackmore but Morse fit the the new metalsound very well.Glover/Paice maybe not sounds so heavy as they can but the sound gets very massive with a orchestra behind. Sad but truly, Gillian is the weak spot. One can not of course expect that a man past 60 hit the high notes as he he did in his 30's. But he probably should lower his ambitions or get help from aditional singers. It helps of course that songs like Child in time are cut out of the repertory. Still this is the best live recording Deep Purple have done in ages. Sound and production, brilliant. Recomended too old and new listeners.
