Destroyed my faith in music
4 June 2001 | by (London-England) – See all my reviews

This is awful. Truly awful. The picture quality is good, but the sound is pretty poor, and the performance...well, what can I say? Everyone can play their instruments, it just appears as if they've forgotten why. This, remember, is the band who gave us 'In Rock' and 'Fireball'. This performance is to those albums as Eric Clapton's modern stuff is to his playing with Cream, or as Sting's solo efforts are to his work with The Police. This is middle-aged, dull, and pointless. The 'classical' arrangements are hackneyed and cliched and don't blend in with the band at all. The reworkings of old favourites ('Wring that Neck' as a big-band jazz number, I ask you!) are not only uninteresting but badly done. There's no Ritchie Blackmore, and I'm sorry, but Steve Morse is one of those 'why use one note where 200 will do?' guitarists. His solos have no structure, no development, and no point. Just like this video. If you like 'real' Deep Purple, steer as far away from this dross as you can get. I can no longer listen to Fireball without seeing Ian Gillan dancing like your Dad at a party. Hugely embarrassing, and has ruined Deep Purple for me forever.
