DEEP PURPLE – PERFECT STRANGERS
If 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.
