Review: Deep Purple – Any Fule Kno That (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Deep Purple – Any Fule Kno That.

This track was released in 1998 on the album Abandon.

The track starts off with a drum kit. From there, the guitars gradually come in. The vocals then join the track for a verse. This is capped off with a brief instrumental.

After that, the main chorus takes over. The next verse follows shortly after. That instrumental section returns before the main chorus makes another return. A quasi instrumental section follows before the next verse comes in.

The same instrumental section joins the track before the main chorus returns. After that, a short verse hits before an instrumental section joins the track. An organ joins the track and extends the instrumental section.

From there, the usual instrumental portion takes over before the vocals take the track eventually brings the track back into the main chorus. A guitar solo also makes an appearance, though this is layered with the main chorus which is extended. After a while, the whole track gradually fades out.

For me, the first thing that sticks out in my mind is the fact that the lyrics are extremely hard to understand. Some of it is garbled to some degree, but the larger problem is the mastering. With the guitars and drum kit being at the levels that they are, the vocals tend to get a bit lost in the mix. They aren’t entirely drowned out, but they get lost enough to make the lyrics almost impossible to really comprehend.

Another thing that sticks out to me is the incredibly short main chorus. It’s all of a line or two unless there is something I am missing thanks to the mastering. While this sounds different to me, I’m not sure if this is a positive or a negative thing. It’s just different.

A positive in this track is the organ. I thought it did add some variety to the track. The guitars also sound decent enough.

Overall, though, this track winds up being a fairly mediocre track. The mastering, unfortunately, made the lyrics seem a bit garbled. Vocals didn’t really help much in this regard. On the plus side, the organ did give the track a little variety. Still, this winds up being a pretty bland one that can be skipped over.
