Yeah, they're still a really great band.
I was a huge Steve Morse fan long before he joined DP or Kansas. Back in his Dixie Dregs & solo days.
That said, I miss Blackmore as a rock
guitarist, especially in this band. And nobody can really quite replace Jon Lord.
What I've heard of this album, it reminds me of House Of Blue Light
, which wasn't one of their best, even though that one had the MkII lineup.
