And while I wouldn't call myself a classic rock aficionado, I do appreciate the finer sounds still made today by some of the aging dinosaurs of rock music. Including Deep Purple, whose new record, Bananas (Sanctuary), is a revelation more than it is a comeback. Not only is it the best album they've managed to crank out in about 15 years, it breaks some new ground. Deep Purple are a band who sound quite a bit younger than they actually are. And in many ways, they sound better than ever.
