When the listener thinks he heard it all in terms of music, song construction, and mind blowing ideas, a band like Deep Purple appears and shatters our ears with tremendous music, full of soul and passion. Masters of a sound they’ve created and develop, “InFinite” continues the tradition of great songs, which seemed to come out naturally from a laid back jam of incredible musicians, which just want to have fun.
The listener have a variety of musical genres blunt into a song, linked in such organic and fantastic way, that what is almost stunning in here is that the formula, never seems to cease or burn out, despite the years going by, doing this the exactly same way, but maintaining the inspiration really intact.
Songs like “Time for Bedlam”, “Hip Boots”, “All I Got Is You”, “One Night in Vegas”, and “Get Me Outta Here” are great examples of this. “Johnny’s Band” seems one of those songs written back in the old days, the same days that the listener will be taken to, since the Deep Purple sound is still intact, just with a better production. Thanks to Bob Ezrin for that. The cover of The Doors “Roadhouse Blues” is another great exercise of what Ian Gillian and the boys can do, specially Steve Morse on guitars and Don Airey on keyboards and organ.
Engineered by Justin Cortelyou, this album is another piece of wonderful music, following the relaxed feeling and easy going mood of the band that we got from previous albums, taking us also back in time. There’s a great song in the special edition of the album called “Paradise Bar”. Really symbolic.
