DEEP PURPLE were (in my opinion) a 1970s band with the glory years being between 1970-1975. As for the re-formed DP I never thought much of them re-forming back in 1984 although the Perfect Strangers album sounds better now than it did to me back in 1984 when it was released. I liked the next album House Of Blue Light from 1987 (except for the album cover?) but apparently the band didn't but I still like tracks like Bad Attitude, The Unwritten Law, Call Of The Wild, The Spanish Archer & Strangeways and the rest. As for the current incarnation of the band I never listen to them anymore.

Had to buy it for 'April', which I know is hardly representative of their work, but I've loved it ever since I first heard it way back in the early 70s.
(To understand this you have to bear in mind that I am actually a prog man rather than a metal lover)

I have always loved the first three Purple albums. Sure there were some real dud tracks, but the interplay between guitar and organ was always great. Hush is one of my favourite early Purple songs.
I don't think of Deep Purple as "metal" at all. Definitely hard rock.

Blackmore was so against the funky touches on this album, when he left soon after he slated it in the music press.. I remember a similar situation with Hawkwind and Quark, Strangeness and Charm.
However I loved it... and still do!
