Specialists/collaborators reviews

AtomicCrimsonRush
Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice are the essential Deep Purple lineup and it was a pleasure to see them doing this ambitious concert with finesse and flair, absolutely cementing their reputation as the ultimate metal progenitors. However therewas not enough rock and it concentrated on an orchestral piece that goes on forever. The DVD features highlights such as the classic songs, Wring That Neck, Pictures Of Home and Smoke On The Water. These were the highlights for me but I became rather bored and disinterested with the lengthy Concerto For Group And Orchestra - Movements I to III. It was interesting at first taste but soon became rather tiresome. So I was a little disapointed in this DVD.

It may be a matter of what you want from this band, I prefer the hard, raucous sound of Machine Head, Made In Japan or In Rock. Dont get me wrong. the orchestra plays beautifully, and its all very technically proficient as far as the movements are concerned, but not Deep Purple the way I remember them. I like my Deep Purple served up with classic killer riffs, magnificent vocals and virtuoso drumming. So this DVD may be great to watch once as a curio piece perhaps, but on second and third viewing its a real yawnfest.
