I'm a big fan of Ritchie Blackmore's playing. I prefer the Rainbow Blackmore, but nonetheless, he came up with some exceptional ideas.
However, Perfect Strangers is one helluva comeback album! Quite a few albums to come out that year (King Crimson/Van
Halen/Scorpions/Metallica), but I remember that album making a HUGE impact on me!
Man.... that dark-sounding breakdown riff in Perfect Strangers is just SICK! Not to mention, Ian Gillan just kills it!
I can't really comment on your opinion, because I can easily say King Crimson never really "sold out", and they're still active today, and have
been active, albeit on an off since '68.
Either way, thanks for the Throwback Saturday!
