Biography

Deep Purple survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community; once credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the globe's loudest band, their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie ...

Ritchie Blackmore and Joe Lynn Turner were at their best yet.
Rocketman
If I had to chose the best song on this album, I would have the biggest problem with doing so, but would have to chose TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH.

It is one of my all time great "go to" Deep Purple albums ever.

Slaves and Masters was recorded in 1990/1991 after Ritchie Blackmore fired Ian Gillan from the band. Gillan was replaced by Joe Lynn Turner, who was Blackmore's cohort in Rainbow from 1981-1984. Consequently, this album turns out sounding like a Turner-era Rainbow album more than a Purple album. Personally, I'm not a fan of JLT Rainbow--give me Ronnie James Dio any day--but I have to admit that I like this album better than the three Rainbow albums with JLT. The first three tracks--King of Dreams, The Cut Runs Deep, and Fire In the Basement--are all pretty good. Unfortunately, after that, the album goes south rather quickly. Truth Hurts is an OK ballad-like song, but most of the album sounds like Ritchie is trying to get an 80s-style pop-rock hit. I'd recommend this only if you're a Purple fanatic completist like me or if you really, really, really love Joe Lynn Turner. Incidentally, Turner was unceremoniously dumped after the tour and Blackmore reluctantly replaced him with Gillan after much complaining from Lord, Paice, Glover, and fans.

I feel really sorry for all these one-track minded poor people out there, who are bashing so hard on this album, just because it doesn't sound like DP some 15-20 years earlier. For you guys maybe "Deep Purple = Machine head" and nothing else matters. Ask yourselves now whether you're one of these people. Well, if DP wanted to sound like they did during the early 70s, they would do it. Personaly I like the first line up (with Rod Evens) AND the Slaves And Masters album, especially the only song that Joe Linn Turner wrote for the album "TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH", is the best DP song for me ever. I've been listening to DP since a child, for more than 20 years and I own the whole DP and Rainbow discography, together with over 1200 other albums, I listen to alot of music almost every day, and I do my second year as a "Musical Arts" student (bass guitar), so believe me, I know what I'm talking about. Yes, and I like the 74-75 albums with David Coverdale more than Mahine head. Don't you ever get tired of listening to Smoke on the water? I would agree with everyone who says this album is not like mk2 DP, but I would NOT agree that this album is in any way worse than any other DP album. It's a pleasure giving album, and "Too much is not enough" just rocks with its groovy mood.

This album was often overlooked due to the absence of Ian Gillan, but the music on it is great! Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Roger Glover and Ian Paice all sound at the top of their game. Joe Lynn Turner does just fine on the vocal duties, but it does kind of gives the album more of a Deep Rainbow feel at times. Now that it's remastered it sounds even better, plus bonus tracks!

I'm very upset to see that people call this album just allright. This is such a wonderful album. This album contains Joe Lynn Turner on vocals, surprising to see as he was RAINBOW's lead singer. With Joe Lynn on vocals it reminds me more of Rainbow than Purple but still an excellant Purple album. The openeing track, KING OF DREAMS, was at the time of release in 1990, a very radio friendly song. I can't say anything bad about any track on this album. I found this album much better than THE HOUSE OF BLUE LIGHT. I would still suggest the purchase of THE HOUSE, but this is an album worth the purchase. The mellowist song on here is LOVE CONQUERS ALL, but is almost the best song on this album. If I had to chose the best song on this album, I would have the biggest problem with doing so, but would have to chose TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH. The album consists of the normal brilliant guitar work by none other than Ritchie Blackmore. The organ/keyboard work of Jon Lord, well what can I say, is excellant. This is a worth while album to purchase and I strongly suggest doing so before you will be unable to do.

"Slaves And Masters" is one of the least heard and most misunderstood Deep Purple albums. Released in '90, it got a bit of notice for the great leadoff track, 'King Of Dreams', then...nothing. The cd isn't even in print in the US (or the UK as far as I know) anymore. A lot of Purple fans dismiss this one as well, not because of the music, but because this is the only Purple album to feature Joe Lynn Turner as lead vocalist. I could care less who's singing, as long as the vocals are good and the music works. And those two qualifications are, of course, met and exceeded. There is some classic Deep Purple material on here. Of course, as has been the case with every Purple release since the '84 regrouping, there is also some filler. But the great material far outweighs the mediocre. The only problem I can see with "Slaves And Masters" is the production-- too slick. The mix is a tad too steeped in '80's metal for the full power of some of the tracks to come through. But that's a minor quibble; after all, it was 1990. Check out this cd, by all means.

You know, I'm kind of a casual Purple fan. I own maybe 6 or 8 of their albums, and I like them all well enough. Richie Blackmore is, of course, a true guitar god - I've been playing for 25 years and he is just as good as they come. But I've never been passionate about DP. Except for this album. This is just as catchy rock and roll gets, and IMO is about the only album that ranks up there with Machine Head. The feel is less 'see what badass musicians we are' and more 'here's a catchy rocker for you.' The result is stunning, and I have no idea why anybody would think this isn't one of the best rock and roll albums ever. Although I've heard other Joe Lynn Turner songs where I wasn't impressed with his singing, here it is picture perfect. This is one of the few (out of hundreds) of my albums that I take out and listen to all the way through regularly. Do yourself a favor - buy this album, pretend that you've never heard of Ian Gillan's Deep Purple, and rock out!
