'In Rock' (1970) - Purple's 4th studio album - was the release that finally cemented the band's position in the pantheon of the true rock gods. The dynamic 'Speed King' provides an excellent platform for the remaining 6 tracks; the highlight is surely the classic 'Child In Time' which moves superbly through the gears and allows the remarkable Ian Gillan to deliver one of the finest ever vocal performances in a hard rock environment. To be honest, there aren't any duffers on 'In Rock' although if I had to pick out another couple of really impressive tracks I would go for 'Flight of the Rat' and the closing number 'Hard Lovin' Man'. Ritchie Blackmore's brilliant guitar work really shines throughout, whilst Jon Lord (keyboards), Roger Glover (bass) and Ian Paice (drums) all make strong contributions. At the very least, buy the trilogy of 'In Rock', 'Fireball' and 'Machine Head' to get your collection of essential Purple purchases off to a strong start.

After 'Machine Head' this is probably the best Deep Purple album. From the manic "Speed King" to the legendary "Black Night" this album is just one rock rush after another. Whilst at school every true rock fan had a copy of this album under their arm, it was virtually mandatory. As for "Child In Time", this was the masters at their best. Pure, breath-taking brilliance.
I can recommend this to any lovers of the rock genre. Definitely an album to be played LOUD! Enjoy.

First heard this album in the early 1970's..a friend of mine owned it. Just got around to ordering my own copy now at the age of 61. A superb album.
