Just looking at the band roster for this album, I shake my head with the crazy amount of talent that this band had.
“Burn” was the beginning of a bluesier sound for Deep Purple, and this new direction was reportedly one of the reasons for Ritchie Blackmore leaving the band. Nonetheless, “Burn” is a very important part of Deep Purple and hard rock history. This album introduced David Coverdale to the world of hard rock, and for that I will always be forever grateful.
The title track “Burn” is easily one of the best Deep Purple songs, and top hard rock songs of all time. The mixture of Coverdale’s and Hughes vocals on this track are awesome. Not only are the vocals great, but Ian Paice may have laid down the best drum beats of his life. Jon Lord’s keyboards really drive this song as well. Ritchie Blackmore’s guitar riffs are fantastic.
While the song “Burn” is my defacto favorite, I enjoy listening to this entire disc. There is no doubt that this disc was highly influential on a large number of musicians. It is amazing how good this disc sounds when played loud today. Each member of this band is extremely proficient in the instruments that they play, and were easily some of the best hard rock musicians of this 70’s hard rock era. The music just shines when blasted through your stereo speakers!
On the 30th Anniversary Remastered edition, there are 5 bonus tracks added to this disc. “Coroniaras Redig” which was originally only available as a “B – Side” track is one of the bonus tracks, as well as remixed versions of “Burn”, “Mistreated”,”You Fool No One”, and “Sail Away”.
Sometimes in order to see what direction hard rock music is heading in, you have to go back and listen to the bands that help form it. It doesn’t get more classic than Deep Purple’s “Burn”.

Formula One Records is proud and happy to announce that ‘Global Warning’, Burn’s universally acclaimed comeback release, is now on sale around the world. As of this month the album is available in much of Europe, including the territories of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden and Benelux. It is also now available in the USA from the excellent outlet NEH Records and is on general release in Japan, where first day sales topped over 2000 units. Other countries will be added to the list throughout the year.
The UK melodic rockers have been added to the Rock Of Ages Festival in Birmingham, England on September 6th and will also be appearing at the Firefest V event at Rock City in Nottingham, England on October 26th.
The band will also be featuring in a special edition of Chris Nelson’s Hairspray Heaven Show on www. rock247online. co. uk on Saturday May 10. Chris chose the track ‘Pray For Rain’, from ‘Global Warning’, as his favourite song of 2007.
Burn emerged from the shadow of the tragic death of original drummer, Karl Bee, and the departure of guitarist Rab Devenney in 2007 with a new line-up and ‘Global Warning’, a storming album which has received tremendous reviews from around the world.
The band, Jeff Ogden, Barney Stackhouse, Marc Stackhouse, Benjy Reid, Julian Nicholas and Phil Hammond will begin work on their fourth album later this year, with release planned for 2009.
Burn’s style of melodic hard rock sounds like a cross between Whitesnake and Gotthard. The musicianship on Global Warning is second to none.
The first that that impressed me was the guitar playing by Julian Nicholas. Nicholas adds plenty of ear pleasing solos all throughout Global Warning. His fret work is well complimented by the rhythm guitar of Phil Hammond and the keyboards of Barney Stackhouse.
This is the first Burn album that I have heard, and I am extremely impressed with the tunes that I have heard here. This is my first experience hearing Jeff Ogden sing . I believe he has one of the best undiscovered voices rock.
By the time this review is finished, I will be seeking out the band’s first two releases So Far So Bad, and Spark To A Flame.
What Burn has managed to do is craft eleven nearly perfect melodic rock tracks. This is a CD that will be played over and over at the Hard Rock Hideout. Burn joins the likes of Sacred Heart, and Redline with superb rock discs from the United Kingdom in 2007. Don’t miss this!
