Unfortunately, there's the rest of the album to deal with, which I find extremely disappointing. I think if we did, Deep Purple would have still been around to this day. And yet I still remember how disappointed I was when a friend lend me a copy of Who Do We Think We Are. Before this album was recorded, Ian Gillan wanted to leave the band, but was persuaded to not do it. Even saying it pales in comparison to Lazy is insufficient to describe how the group went from craftsman to workman in a genre that served as the basis for much of their work. But with intra- band tensions reaching a fever point Ritchie had a bit of a reputation for not getting along with his vocalists, a theme that would pop up through the rest of his career , this wasn't exactly the best time to try and go out on a limb. Three stars for this effort.
People obviously expected some more hard stuff as on In Rock, Machine Head, and Made in Japan. The other songs, though competently executed, are totally forgettable, and seem to blur into each other in a sort of shapeless mess. So, Gillan stayed with the band for more time. I don't play this song as much. It was Deep Purple's last album with singer and bassist until came out in 1984. But they had to work. For one, i don't want a sequel of a previous masterpiece but rather a new set of tunes that take a bold new approach to the sound laid out from what came before.
Haha, side joke to dear Raff. Especially when that limb ended up costing the band most of what made it stand out from everybody else in the first place. Posted Wednesday, January 28, 2009 Review 200914 A self prophesying title if there ever was one. Ian Gillan's voice is as clear as on In Rock, Machine Head or Fireball, but the power of In Rock. Great hard rock song with a good riff.
Posted Saturday, March 28, 2009 Review 209113 Reading Cacho coming to this album's rescue , after Raff's rip a rather strong descritpion for it was done in a most kind and soft manner , I just had to add my two canadian cents in. Being not full disappointment I shall give it 2 stars! Even if this deserves a small corner in your discography, is not appropriate for your first 'purple' experience. These numbers helped make Deep Purple the best selling artist in the U. But good enough to keep you from getting up to lift the needle to the next song. First and foremost is the song that many Deep Purple fans consider to be an embarrassment to the band's catalog, the single - and actually somewhat well known - Woman From Tokyo.
This band simply had a universal charm. Archived from on 9 April 2016. There's no sutff like Lazy or Highway Star or Child in Time, to name a few, but they surely stand alongside Never Before, Maybe I'm a Leo, Smoke on the Water, Demon's Eye, and more of the style, just with a bit less of substance and new ideas. After that, Gillan finally left the band. Just make sure you don't spend a small fortune on the album, because while it is good, it's got the face that only a mother or in this case, fan could love.
A basic blues, instumentally, lyrically, structurally. No wonder they broke up! Expectations are even higher if you keep in mind that a year ago, the same band released one of the most influential albums in classic rock, Machine Head. I trusted that they wouldn't make me regret buying it on faith alone. The album's line-up would come to an end after a final concert in on 29 June 1973. Woman From Tokyo, which opens the album, is the first not so fast track to open a Purple album if you compare it with Speed King, Fireball and Hig.
Super Trouper, we saw as this album's Maybe I'm a Leo. The keyboard solo is also quite adventurous as Lord is a relentless madman. On top of that, the ambience within the band is desastrous. Our Lady 1999 remix 6:05 12. When you put this album on you are trying to find something good, but it's really very hard until the end of the album. There is not much to say about Who Do We Think We Are? There are so many ways this could've been a better album but i personally love this one a lot and find it a testament to the fortitude of a great band at their absolute worst that is still able to crank out excellent music despite wanting to pull out a semi-automatic rifle and blow everyone else around them away.
Ian Paice and Jon Lord are at their best. They will come back as such much later on. One of them is from magazine of July 1972, where drummer remarks: Deep Purple get piles of passionate letters either violently against or pro the group. Ian performs quite well here. True that we cannot change history but we can alter our misguided perceptions of a great album that's been deemed inferior for too long. The remastered version has lots of bonuses. But he and Ritchie Blackmore were not talking to each other, and Roger Glover said that this situation even caused more problems during the recording of the album.
Woman From Tokyo alternate bridge 1:24 10. Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free, you'd better hang on tightly. What they got was something like a sequel to Fireball. Woman From Tokyo 1999 remix 6:37 9. Baby you're the one who can never see the sun, because it don't shine nightly.
