"Child In Time" is one of the greatest things ever recorded.

With that out of the way, we can move on to the rest of the review. In Rock, though maybe a hair inferior to the eternally great Machine Head, still captures Deep Purple at the greatest point in its history. The Mark II lineup delivers its debut album with a sonic punch to the chest that leaves no doubts about where heavy metal originated.

Just listening again to the "Child In Time" and it's amazing! Actualy i can't recollect any other rock/metal song which could match this one regarding songwriting and composition. Brilliant album, much of playful songwriting, outstanding performance.

It's impossible for me to give this album the right rating, Child In Time is simply one of the most amazing songs of all time, but other than that song there isn't one song of this album I even remotely remember after a gazillion listens...

Child In Time is the obvious centerpiece and probably the greatest song Purple ever did, but the album is more about the intensity of the performances (the amazing Blackmore / Lord interplay, Gillan's crazy screaming) than the individual songs. That's not to say that Speed King, Bloodsucker and Flight Of The Rat aren't Purple classics too.

I am surprised that you as a thrash fan (or am I confusing you with someone else? ) can't even remember Speed King, which is considered by many one fo the very first proto speed/thrash songs.

Well, I am a thrash fan, but the thing is, I've never really liked Deep Purple that much, apart from Child in Time of course. I've always respected Deep Purple, but I just don't like listening to them . Saying this makes me feel like one of those guys that doesn't like Black Sabbath, yet still listens to metal...

And after two years since I last commented here I've come to appreciate this album more (though, for me, it's still not the masterpiece everyone makes it out to be).

( Copied from 'review' page, if anyone is interested...):
Child In Time is awesome. And this too (the mighty (John) Lord took the intro from this song):
