"Machine Head" by Deep Purple

6 years, 1 month ago at Feb 19 7:52
I got introduced to this one rather late, given who I was listening to 10 years before. It was in the mid 90’s and it was courtesy of the guy sitting next to me at work. He usually listened to country and folk. But one day he brought in this and Black Sabbath’s “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath”. Never took to Ozzy’s old band, but I enjoyed “Machine Head” enough that I went and got my own copy... read more

Machine Head Is The 6th Album By Deep Purple And Was Released In 1971!

For All Deep Purple Fans (Like Me), This Album Is A Shrine! Even Though We Had Several Memorable Albums In 1971, I Consider This Album To Be One Of The Most Defining Albums Of The 70's And Rock As Whole!

ディープ・パープルの傑作の一つである。第2期の一番充実した時期に制作された作品と言える。前作ファイアーボールがツアーで忙しく時間のない中急ぎ足で制作されたため、もっとじっくりと腰を据えて取り組もうということでまとまった時間を確保した。当初録音に使用する予定だったカジ... read more

Overrated Albums (19 music items)

"Deep Purple was a one hit wonder metal band of the 70's if there ever was a true one. They started off as prog rockers, but that didn't go so well so they turned to Metal going into the 70's. I like to think of them as a one hit wonder cause the only song anyone can remember by them is Smoke On The Water and that sums up their entire career in a nutshell. I also like to point out that I think Richie Blackmore is the most overrated rock guitarist on the face of the earth. He seems to think he's t"

Happy Vader posted a review 1 year, 10 months ago

“By: Deep Purple

Release date: 1971

Standing track: Smoke on The Water

Machine Head played a crucial role in the shaping of the heavy metal genre and is one of the best albums released in early 70's. I really liked the lyrics of Highway Star and When a Blind Man Cries, the latter which I consider one of the beautiful songs ever. Also, it has Smoke on the Water, the only song the mainstream audience recognize! Bah!” read more

“ディープ・パープルの傑作の一つである。第2期の一番充実した時期に制作された作品と言える。前作ファイアーボールがツアーで忙しく時間のない中急ぎ足で制作されたため、もっとじっくりと腰を据えて取り組もうということでまとまった時間を確保した。当初録音に使用する予定だったカジノが火事に遭って焼失したため、冬季休業中のホテルを借りた。イアン・ペイスがホテルの廊下でドラムを録音したところ良好な音質が得られたため、全員が廊下で演奏することとした。それがこの作品におけるサウンドの特徴を表している。

" Year: 1971! Deep Purple is my most fav. rock band of all time and Machine Head - alongside In Rock - are 2 best Deep Purple albums! 1971 was a major turn-point in rock and DP were a big part of it. They gave us an epic song on cars, catchy tunes and one immortal guitar riff! It's a must-have for Deep Purple - and rock, in general - fans out there!

When My Friend Gave Me This Album From His Gigantic Music Collection, I Just Ignored It Because I Thought That Deep Purple Would Be Another Heavy-Rock Band With No Aim (You Can Gasp All You Like, But This Was My First Reaction)!!!!

Anyways, When I Was Bored Listening To The Same Selected Songs Over & Over & Over Again, I Decided To Open Machine Head And Check The Contents... The Title That Caught My Attention Was 'Smoke On The Water' And I Opened It! Ahhh!!! No Words Can Describe The Feeli” read more

It is funny how changes in music change our perceptions. Back in 1972 when this was released, it was consider some of the heaviest music ever recorded and helped usher in heavy metal movement. After listening to the likes of Metallica (who are tame by comparison to others now), this is just rock ‘n roll. But it’s filled with great hooks, fun, catchy tunes (by today’s standards) a” read more
