Classic Rock Review
There is a very slight guitar lead during the bridge which quickly gives way to the percussive potpourri, as if Blackmore knew to step out the way of an oncoming train. The song leaves the listener begging for more as it fades out to finish the album. […]

Metal Archives
So I’m sitting here separated from this album by 45 motherfucking years and considering comparing it to whiskey or cheese or wine, since age has not dimmed this a great deal, but distilled much of its quality and made it more potent to taste. […]

Rolling Stone
And I am confident that I will love the next five Deep Purple albums madly so long as they sound exactly like these last three. […]
