AllMusic / Eduardo Rivadavia:” Deep Purple’s soon to be classic Mark II version
made its proper debut and established the sonic blueprint that would immortalize this
lineup of the band on 1970’s awesome In Rock… “Child in Time.” In what still stands as
arguably his single greatest performance, singer Ian Gillan led his bandmates on a series
of hypnotizing crescendos, from the song’s gentle beginning through to its ear-shattering
climax and then back again for an even more intense encore that brought the original
vinyl album’s seismic first side to a close… One of heavy metal’s defining albums.”

Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

TUTV: Their best line-up, their best LP, their best single. 3 x classic!
