3691507If you are looking to add just one classic hard rock cd to your collection for the next 12 months, this should be it. “Perfect Strangers” is simply put, perfect. The signature guitar sound of Ritchie Blackmore, the recognizable keyboards, and the incredible, eye popping vocal range of Ian Gillian are all over these songs. “Knockin’ at Your Back Door” and “Perfect Strangers” are the two hits that drove this legendary release to FM radio popularity. “Son of Alerik”, the bonus track, is an instrumental that is so fitting to conclude “Perfect Strangers”, it is melodic and mello, led by Ritchie Blackmore’s unmatched ability to make a guitar literally sing for you. I always wish this Deep Purple lineup stayed together forever, the consolation is that “Perfect Strangers” can be enjoyed forever. Do not hesitate to buy this Deep Purple gem.


  1. my favorite DP album ever.

    • metalodyssey Says:

      For some odd reason, this album reminds me of Autumn. Thus, each Autumn, I play it till my Metal hearts content.

  2. Deep Purple is one of my favorite bands of all time and the only time I have seen Deep Purple live was on their reunion tour at Lakeland, Fl in 1985. Still one of the best concerts I have ever seen

  3. A great band and their greatest line up – a shame they don’t get the credit they deserve

    • Metal Odyssey Says:

      I agree 100%. Regardless of “lineup changes” with the Deep Purple franchise, this band has never been sub-par or even average with any lineup. Legends all. Their absence from that Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame only solidifies why it’s a legitimate “Hall Of Shame”.

      Thanks for visiting and your cool words of Rockin’ wisdom. \m/
