NME wrote: “This is music for the car stereo next time you’re stuck in traffic. And we mean that as a heartfelt compliment… A full 48 years since the release of their stone-cold classic hit ‘Smoke On The Water’ and with enough line-up changes to put The Fall to everlasting shame, Deep Purple have managed to wade through the rocky waters of the entire history of heavy metal and always come up smiling… Packed full of decadent riffs, haunted house keyboards and frontman Ian Gillan’s gloriously hammy vocals, ‘Whoosh!’ isn’t just a testament to their staying power, but perhaps one of the most stupidly fun and outrageously silly albums of the year – and goodness, we’re all in need of a bit of fun right now, aren’t we?… ‘Whoosh!’ might not sound like it was created in 2020, but considering the last few months we’ve had, maybe that’s a good thing.” Score: 3/5

Key tracks: Oops
