The final album to feature the classic ‘70s lineup of Deep Purple until 1984’s comeback album Perfect Strangers, Who Do You Think We Are shows what a band in conflict can still accomplish, even with egos clashing. Granted—considering the high level the band had been operating on since 1970’s Deep Purple in Rock—only “Woman From Tokyo” (with its killer Ritchie Blackmore riff guiding its way) ranks at the top of their game. Ian Gillan’s lyrics here appear to be trivializing the great musical performances. “Mary Long,” for example, reads like a hilarious parody of ‘70s hard rock, while the playing is tight and superb. “Super Trouper” throws Blackmore and organist Jon Lord into a syncopated groove that continues through the jamming “Rat Bat Blue.” “Our Lady” ensures they end things not on a generic note but with a suitable send-off for the band’s best lineup. Reissues of this album come with recent remixes that alter the sound of the album considerably. Loyalists will be shocked, while newcomers may find it more engaging.
WOW, Whoever that so called pro is that wrote the review for this album clearly does not appreciate good music or really didn't listen to it. I have just finished listening to this album for the 3rd time (not in a row) and it just gets better and better. In my opinion, the album contains nothing but real good music start to finish. There are several different styles here with some blues, a little jazz and a lot of Rock & Roll. Give it a listen - I almost didn't get this because the poor review. I am glad I did, as it is one of the best studio albums by Deep Purple. Very interesting stuff if you listen closely.
The best studio album by Deep Purple
Okay, I bought this LP when it originally came out in 1973, when I was a senior in high school. Nothing else even came close to the excitement I felt while listening to this album, especially with headphones. It still holds up today on CD or iTunes. It may not be their hardest rocking album, but it is definetly their most adventurous. The more you listen...the better it gets. Do yourself a favour and feed your head with "Who Do You Think We Are." You will thank me! Or better still, thank Deep Purple!
judge for yourself
this work by deep purple is a just another good chapter of there legacy..truly not as bad as the review...rule of thumb if the critics are negative give it a listen..judge for yourself...
