All the while, their reputation as one of the decade's fiercest live units complemented this body of work and earned them almost instant legendary status. But with Super Trouper - Deep Purple - Who Do We Think We Are disappointing Who Do We Think We Are -- the fourth and final studio outing by the original run of Purple 's classic Mark II lineup -- all the fire and inspiration that had made the previous year's Machine Head their greatest triumph mysteriously vanished from sight.
Vastly inferior to all three of its famous predecessors, the album revealed an exhausted band clearly splintering at the seams. Except for opener "Woman From Tokyo," which hinted at glories past with its signature Ritchie Blackmore riff, the album's remaining cuts are wildly inconsistent and find the band simply going through the motions.
In Hex - Various - In Goth Daze, many of these don't so much resemble songs as loose jam sessions quickly thrown together in the studio with varying degrees of enthusiasm.
With its start-stop rhythm and Gillan 's fine scat singing, the energetic "Rat Bat Blue" is a memorable exception to the rule, but the yawn-inducing blues of "Place in the Line" and the gospel mediocrity of "Our Lady" bring the album to Super Trouper - Deep Purple - Who Do We Think We Are close with a whimper rather than a shout. In any case, if looked upon without the bias that the band name forces on it, the album is mediocre, but not forgettable piece of the early 70's. And that's about it.
Thank you. But since a lot of people either love or hate reviews that run off on a random tangent, it's time to do exactly that, just for the sake of entertainment and random irritation; if you have a feeling you'll be irritated by the following speculation, please stop reading here.
You see, Deep Purple's career has some intriguing parallels with that of Black Sabbath, but nobody seems to notice them.
It's time to put the cat on the table, as the finnish figure of speech goes, and take a good look at it. Black Sabbath is the band that created, in Super Trouper - Deep Purple - Who Do We Think We Are opinion of a lot of people, the whole musical concept of heavy metal.
This can be debated, of course, and there are a lot of opposing opinions. But if we, for the sake of this useless argument, assume that that is true, Wheres The Difference - Active Minds - Death To Capitalism And Other Tales must take a look at later developments.
Sabbath continued their career, and according to some, gave birth to doom and stoner metal, too, as if it wasn't enough to create the great mother genre itself. What, you may ask, does this have to do with Deep Purple? Well, it's simple, actually. If you look at the works of Deep Purple, especially the Four Great Albums mentioned above, it would be trivially easy to claim other genres as inventions of Gillan, Blackmore, Paice, Lord and Glover.
Speed King, Fireball and Highway Star? Obvious proto-speed metal, partly before the birth of heavy metal itself. Speed King, at least, would definitely work as a pure speed metal song, if covered by a suitably oriented band. The Mule? Whoa, we have a pretty epic proto-doom metal song from in our hands! Child in Time? An obvious predecessor of the Opethian branch of progressive metal, of course.
It's got nothing in the way of genre-defining epicness, no thrash or death metal on it because, hey, we've already exhausted the rest of the potential genres here? Well, listen to Rat Bat Blue. A rock song, you say? Yes, yes it is.
Nah, just kidding, of course; the same song has "Woo-hoo! Jackson performs today. It's just a coincidence, but still, it's a coincidence that shows that there's rarely anything that hasn't been done before, by someone, somewhere. Yup, this a mediocre and half-boring piece of early 70's rock, and contains no genre-spawning great ideas.
It's not a bad album, but should you stand in front of the CD shelf at a store wondering how to invest your precious allowance, get the four earlier ones Super Trouper - Deep Purple - Who Do We Think We Are this one.
