Deep Purple

Album Description:

PERFECT STRANGERS is the eleventh studio album by Deep Purple, released in October 1984. It represents the first album recorded by the reformed, and most successful and popular, "Mark II" line-up. It was the first Deep Purple studio album in nine years, and the first with the "Mark II" line-up for eleven years, the last being WHO DO WE THINK WE ARE in 1973. Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover arrived from Rainbow, Ian Gillan from Black Sabbath, Jon Lord from Whitesnake, and Ian Paice from Gary Moore's backing band. The album was remastered and reissued June 22, 1999 with the bonus instrumental track "Son of Alerik". The latter had previously been available as a B-side on "Perfect Strangers" in 1984.

Deborah Frost of Rolling Stone gave it a review of two out of five stars, remarking that "the material consists of hastily knocked-off jams". The review also stated that "Blackmore's Strat has such a great roar that you're willing to just let it reverberate in your eardrums for a bit. And it's nice to hear Jon Lord's synthesized organ squalls, Ian Paice's electrifying drumming, Ian Gillan's howls and whispers and Roger Glover's solid bass lines once again." The album reached #5 in the U.K. (staying for four weeks in the top-40) and #17 in the U.S. (staying for 28 weeks in the Billboard 200). The tour was so successful that the band had to add many additional dates to the U.S. arena tour, as tickets sold out very quickly.

The album was a major worldwide hit, going platinum in the U.S., and spawning several rock radio hits. Despite the changes that occurred in the musical landscape during the band's absence, the group did not change its sound much for the reunion, sticking to the ingredients that made them so exceptional in the first place. The title track recalls Led Zeppelin's sprawling epics ("Kashmir," etc.), while the melodic rockers "Knocking At Your Back Door" and "Nobody's Home" prove to be standouts as well.
