This two track charity single by WhoCares has been released to support the rebuilding of a music school in Gyumri, Armenia. Ian Gillan, Tony Iommi and various other hard rock and metal stars, have combined to record two original songs and it was that fact alone that tempted me to make a purchase.

The first track Out of my mind, is a classic sinister hard rock track, all heavy guitars and growling hammond (courtesy of Jon Lord), with a couple of killer slow burning guitar solos. My favourite track however, is Holy Water which has the feel of classic Ian Gillan solo material. It rocks a bit harder than the recent One Eye to Morocco album, but with a haunting duduk intro opening the track and Ian Gillan's alternately mystical/anecdotal lyrics, the song is very much in that vein.

The music feels as gelled as any touring band, and deserves to make it into your record collection on its own merits. Rather toning down their excesses and hoping for a radio friendly effort, WhoCares have produced the sort of material their fans rightly love them for and donated the proceeds to charity.

Cool single. A couple of nice classic Iommi/ Gillan tracks. Nothing new under the sun, but definitly delivers the good.
Makes me wish they had recorded a few more songs.
Next time give a bit more room to Nicko McBrain, and it'll be perfect.

After the Marmite album that was Born Again, some of us have been waiting a long time for the Gillan / Iommi magic to be worked again.
This "single" (I guess in 'the old days' this would have been a double A side single!) is wonderful.
The RiffMaster Iommi does what he does best - wonderful dark sounding riffs
Ian Gillan's voice, whilst not the screaming powerhouse he once was, has shown that in his late 60s he has found a new voice - one that is still so well suited to Iommi's guitar work.

This little CD is joy in a worthy cause.

Buy it - you won't be disappointed if you enjoy the music of either of these two outstanding musicians.

Difficult to find the words to say just how wonderful this is.Both tracks definetly refresh the parts other songs can't reach.

I have not had any problems with the enhanced video content or the music on this disc.

I have a macbook pro running the Snow Leopard OS, and the latest versions of iTunes and VLC Player. My recommendation is to look carefully at the disc in the relevant window on your computer and copy the two flash videos to your computer. These will open in VLC. You might need to ask the computer to open it in that application (which is a free download). It will open and play just fine without needing the included software on the disc.

As far as the content is concerned, it's Iommi + Gillan, what's not to like? :-) The documentary and video are also very good

From the opening notes on Out of My Mind, you get a sensation that this could be something special - and Iommi, Gillan, Lord, McBrain, Newsted and Lindestrom deliver a solid hard rock anthem - of Gillan no doubt relating his own personal experience of seeing the aftermath of an earthquake in Armenia - which of course, led to the Rock Aid Armenia charity event.

The song sadly does overstay it's welcome, as the refrain of "Out of My Mind" becomes repetetive, but the band is tight - and watching the film clip (it appears that the video footage is cd-rom only - I could play the disc on a computer, but not on the xbox/dvd player), it was a delight to see some masters of rock/metal at work (in particular Jon Lord, who shows, that even though he's retired from the hard rock scene he set alight in the 70's with Deep Purple, that he's lost nothing in how to deliver his magic on the Hammond organ).

Holy Water, conversely, is nothing short of a masterpiece - and one which makes your heart glow and cheeks ruddy as the favourite tipple does on a winter's day. Gillan again is sublime vocally here, and this song is just classic Ian Gillan rock. The Armenian musicians on dudek and keyboards are sometimes swamped by Iommi's all pervading guitar, but they add another dimension to the song - and it is for their benefit, as well as other very talented musicians that this single was recorded.

The documentary is short and to the point - showing the past history of what came before, and what is now, and Ian is witty and humble - a rare breed of rock star it seems these days, and it seems he genuinely is concerned about the Armenian people.

These are musicians who just ooze class, proving there is NO substitute for experience and a bucket load of talent. Hope they get round to making an album.

This features two (great!!!) songs with Gillan/Iommi + some glitterati. Bonus includes Gillan Armenian
concert and interview footage. Fans won't want to miss this ... plus it seems a good deed is being done
in the process. Not to be missed. Naysayers go away .. MUST HAVE
