Rating: 9 This album was certainly before my time as a music lover (about three decades, really) but it is one of the greatest albums I've ever heard.

Rating: 10 This album is the museum of riff and heavy. Who doesn't know Smoke On The Water ?

  This is the album that anyone MUST listen.

Wait, who doesn't know this album?

Rating: 10 Classic album. The keyboard interlude on 'Lazy' is fucking brilliant.

Rating: 10 This album is what started me off into metal when i was 3. Yes 3yo. I used to get it onto the old turntable and listen to it over and over on the headphones. I used to scratch the shit out of it trying to put it on. Put a big gouge in pictures of home. Sucks. That was nearly 30 years ago.

Rating: 10 It's sad that the only well-known track on this masterpiece is "Smoke On The Water"...

Yeah, you're right in that in the broader mainstream that became a very well-known and popular song but I think amongst hard rock fans and metal fans particularly, the song "Highway Star" is very highly regarded and well-known. Have you seen the doco that was made on the making of the album? Well worth seeing.

No, I still haven't, I'll make sure chacking it. What makes me sad is that, while anyone knows that radio friendly, really less people know about Blackmore's stunning solos, and so on...

That's the one. From memory, they recorded the album in a house in Montreux - is that right?

hotel, its what smoke on the water is all about. i knew the story of the burning casino and recording at the hotel but it was interesting them talking about the red lights and mattresses to stop echoing which is even mentioned in the song. i did find it all very good
