Burn was the first Deep Purple album to feature the Mark III lineup; returning from Mark II were the living legends Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice. Vocalist Ian Gillan and bassist Roger Glover had departed, to be replaced by David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, respectively. These additions brought to the band an entirely new set of influences and a novel musical direction, which set apart the Mark III albums from the rest of Deep Purple's material. Burn is a step down from the Mark II era, in terms of both sound and substance, but Coverdale and Hughes had some impossibly big shoes to fill.

Rating: 8 A 200 is a enourmous psychedelic song

Rating: 8 Great album, I really like the groovy style they play on here. 'Mistreated' and the title track are two of the band's best songs.

Rating: 5 Couldn't agree more, "Burn" and "Mistreated" are two awesome songs. Probably my favourites by Deep Purple after "Soldier of Fortune".

so why bother to rate the album then?

I don't like brutal death metal or black metal, but I don't go giving negative ratings.

What? That's the most stupid thing I've ever heard. I rated it because I own the album or mainly because I've HEARD the album. So we're only supposed to rate stuff we like? If I've seen a bad movie, should I not rate it on IMDB then?
That's one of the reasons why our MS ratings are fucked up.

I never said we are supposed to rate only stuff we like; I for one would never rate an album of a band I'm not into, that's all.
You still have not told me yet why you think Burn is not a good album.

I listen to everything in metal, even though I sometimes might not like it. Why? Because someone said something was good, and then I listen to it. If I've heard something from start to end I'll be sure to rate it, everybody should. Maybe then we could get some accurate rating, where we nowadays have ratings where you should be suspicious about an album if it "only" has 8.1 or something like that.
"Burn" is not an album for me because Deep Purple is not a band for me. The title song and "Mistreated" are great songs, the rest give me nothing and are in my opinion boring. Plain rock music overall isn't really my genre, unless it's something more progressive, like Rush.

You are right about the rating thing you mention there.
I was just surprised at your rating for Burn; to me, it's one of their best works, it's definitely not plain rock music, I've been listening to this for a really long time, never got bored with it.

I think if one does not like a particular genre, one should not rate albums in that genre. I mean if you totally don't understand what black metal is about, then how can you make a judgement about an album of that genre?

On the other hand, those albums that appeal to the widest category and are rated positively by the largest number of people could be considered as established classics. That's why we have Master of Puppets, Rust in Peace, Blackwater Park, Painkiller etc. in the TOP 200.

I meant to say that rock music isn't my favourite genre and Deep Purple is far away from my favourite band. I never said I "totally don't understand rock music". I love Queen, I love Rush, I listen to a lot of rock overall, I own a lot of rock albums, there is Deep Purple songs I love and there is Deep Purple albums I like. So I think I'm more than capable of rating a Deep Purple album.

I don't understand, are people like pissed because I rated "Burn" a 5? Chill, girlfriends! I came to this topic praising some songs on the album, suddenly I'm the bad guy "who really shouldn't rate Deep Purple albums because rock music isn't your favourite genre"

I don't really care about your rating. I answered only because I touched on an interesting topic for me: should we rate all albums and after how many listens?

Ah okay, my bad. And yes, that is an interesting topic. When it comes to metalstorm I feel that I can rate almost anything, since I listen to most genres here. When it comes to music outside this website, I really don't have much to say about it.

I personally rate ALL albums I physically own. And after how many listens? 99% of all albums can easily be rated after just one listen.

Rating: 5 Well, if it's a simply built plastic release, one listen tells a lot.. but with most of the albums there should be more spins, just because the nuances and tensions only start their work during the first experience. Repetition is a healthy thing which allows foreplay the next time. In my opinion, knowing what's behind the corner and waiting it to happen, plays a big role when listening to some release.
Marcel Hubregtse - 14.07.2012 at 16:32  
Rating: 8 I disagree. Imo repetition usually kills the release because you knwo what's coming. and trust me after listening to metal for 33 years I can safely say that in 99% of the cases one spin si enough to award the album a fair rating, no matter if the album is plastic (as you called it) or so-called deep. Really 99% pf all releases aren't deep at all.

Let's continue the off-topicness, but for me it usually takes a least 5 listens to really get into the album; maybe, it's simply your experiences ears... does it matter where you listen to music and on what device?

It doesn't matter where I listen to it. But I should not listen to it on some 'crappy' mp3 player or my phone or mp3s in general because they do sound worse than the actual release (be it on cd or vinyl or cassette)

But that doesn't hinder me in judging the music on itself, it just hionders in judging the mix and mastering.
Array - 14.07.2012 at 16:41  
Rating: 5 Of course there's also the 'First love' -side. Some albums just continue their value downhill after the first, say, 'good experience'. You can have your own way, but I stay on my own (with about 50 % of those years).

  That album is amazing. Mistreated is a amazing song. Hail Deep Purple
