Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

I should check this forum more often. Hard core Purple fan that I am, I'd have hated to have missed this discussion.

Fireball is easily my second favorite DP album. I agree it's not as accessible as Machine Head but it's very musically diverse and interesting and has some great tunes and some of Gillan's best lyrics. Big Ian isn't the only one in the band who likes the album, by the way. Jon Lord has had nice things to say about it too.

I think Who Do We Think We Are, Stormbringer, and Come Taste The Band are strong, respectable albums. The album DP should regret (if they don't already) is Slaves and Masters, but even that has a few good tracks on it ("Cut Runs Deep" springs immediately to mind).

Other possibilities:

Black Sabbath Technical Ecstasy
Kiss Asylum
Rush Caress of Steel
