Best Studio Deep Purple Albums:

Shades of Deep Purple (1968):

Their debut album as a metal band from the studio was a failure n’ audiences of US n’ UK rejected it because of their lack of the taste of the heavy metal!! DAMN!!

And they already had several changes from various musical backgrounds on their lineups for that album.

The Book of Taliesyn (1986):

2nd studio album as following by their debut after three months in 1968. This time, they were able to catch the attention of the Hippie audiences

And started their US tour but in the UK their British metal band audiences criticized them like hell n’ that was pathetic. So still you can’t enlist that album as the best Deep Purple.

Deep Purple (1969):

Their self-titled heavy metal band album n’ their 3rd studio album was the last album of their legendary original line- up but consider as a failed project comparing to their rest of the albums by the critics.

After that album, they had several changes on their lineups for the rest of the best Deep Purple!!

By this album, their popularity increased in the US but decreased in their own UK and faced some financial difficulties as well. Not only that after rocking in the American soil, this time,

They were able to release their album outside of the country because of being on the US Billboard chart in #162. So, enlist that album as a mind-blowing album by the Deep Purple!! COOL YEAH!! 😀

Deep purple in Rock (1970):

Their overall 4th head banging studio album but very first studio album of their brand-new line- up!! That was a record-breaking album of the Deep Purple, a mighty British head banging Band.

Because that album ranked them as #4th n’ paved the way for their longest world tour! Their track Black Night ranked as #2 on the UK top chart!! HELL YEAH: D

Dee Purple Fireball (1971):

the 5th studio album of Deep Purple Fireball lyrics consisted their famous tracks Strange kind of woman reached #8 in the UK, rest of the tracks like Deep Purple no no no, Deep Purple the Mule was some big hit as well!!

But the members of the Band weren’t very excited about that metal band album at all! 

But still according to some critics that weren’t so bad at all!! Even So, we can say that it was an average rated album anyway but Deep Purple Fireball live drew the attraction of their audience by their mighty performance!! YEAH… 😀

Deep Purple Machine Head (1973):

Best Deep Purple Machine Head is the 6th metal album of the band Deep Purple n’ consider as the most mind-blowing album of the band so definitely the best Deep Purple creation of all time!! 😀

Even is the UK they secured their position in #1 and rocked on that Billboard chart almost a year!! But in the US, they made it possible for almost 4 years!!

This metal band album re-released in 2012 as the 40th- anniversary celebration release of them. DAMN!!

Who Do We Think We Are? (1973):

The 7th & last studio album vocalist Ian Gillian Bassist Roger Glover as well. Having some internal conflicts among the players n’ manager as well that album still had a huge success with mind-blowing sales!!

Their tour in Japan had a successful impact on that album. 18th month of long touring on earth made them sick n’ tired enough

Because sometimes it’s not only money that all you need but that album considers among the best Deep Purple projects for sure!! FUCK YEAH 😀

That metal band album rocked in the #4 in UK n’ # 15 in the US chart as well!! Their audiences played a vital role in the record-breaking selling off the album around the world!! HELL YEAH!! 😀

Still, Deep purple burns their world-famous track like “Highway Star” as a result in 2004 they released the remix version of Burn in 2004 what made that album in the list of Deep Purple’s mega-hits!! 😊

Deep Purple Stormbringer (1974):

Their 9th heavy metal band studio album was kind of flopped album but still on the #6 in the UK n’ #20th in the US top chart. But in 1990 after getting remastered with some bonus tracks it came in the limelight.

In 2009 releasing on their 35th -anniversary edition with their remastered and remix songs they were able to rock the attention of their heavy metal audience once again!! 😀

Come Taste the Band (1975):

Their 10th heavy metal album with a new line-up with bad effects of the cocaine addiction n’ Hughes’ n’ Lord went in jail for the accusation of the murder of their security officer Patsy Collins as well.

And according to some sources, they paid a bribe for getting the hell out of from Jakarta airport!! DAMN, that was nasty!!

Playing of rock guitar n’ backup vocal with low tempos had an important role to play in this album. That successful album ranked as #43rd in US n’ #19th in the UK top chart as a metal band.

 And after that horrible tour of 1976 because Tommy Bolin passed away for the reaction of Heroine and finally that line up broke up for 8 long years!!  How Pathetic….
