The first CD single I've bought since the 90's, and well worth it. The title track is a stately and atmospheric rocker, complete with choir. The previously unreleased First Sign of Madness is a pretty generic uptempo number, although it's worth a listen for Don Airey's lively roadhouse piano and a typically catchy Steve Morse guitar solo. The Well-Dressed Guitar was my main reason for buying this release in the first place, since it's otherwise only available on the tour edition of Rapture of the Deep. Faux-classical and magisterial, it's one of my favourite rock instrumentals ever. The live version of Wrong Man is from the same RotD tour edition. With a nice, chugging groove, it demonstrates just how tight Deep Purple is as a live unit. And again, the highlight is the guitar solo.

The CD is enhanced, so you have to put it in your PC or Mac to see the video. Remember the craze when just about every CD was enhanced? Anyway, I just dragged and dropped the 200 MB+ mp4 file to my desktop. The video is an entertaining pastiche of horror movies from the silent era, although whoever wrote the oddly phrased title cards is obviously not a native English speaker. But somehow that just adds to the quaintness of buying a physical CD single in 2013 :)

Great track by the Purple and taken from a great album. But why put a picture of Keith Richards on the cover???

Atmospheric , is it halloween yet , well its Purple having some big production fun , if you havent got Now What then after this get it the album is the best since Purpendicular ( in my opinion ) Not so sure about the added electric piano on 2nd track 1st sign of madness tracks 3&4 filler from Rapture bonus disc , well cool.

This a good track from the brilliant album "Now What ?!", it's a shame it won't chart though, there is an extra unreleased track on the 5 track CD, which is good and well worth buying it for that.

Great song!
Great video and picking up the other tracks all equals excellent stuff!
Only one negative issue, why not put all this on the album? (Not Amazon's fault!)

This New Single - with the songs - prooves again why Deep Purple are still doing It! Because They Can! Better than the others, old and young!

This is good. Very good. Plenty of atmosphere. Typical Gillan vocals. This could go down as one of the band's classic songs.

A piece of very good music, what should be expected from such musicians. Vincent was the best candidate for single
