Deep Purple's second album saw the band opting for a slightly more progressive sound, epic song structures such as on 'Shield' and enigmatic closer 'River deep, mountain high' showing the band's young musical talent and using each of their respective instruments to the fullest effect. There are still a few cover songs such as 'We can work it out' courtesy of the Beatles and 'Kentucky woman', and although Deep Purple didn't quite match the quality found on the original versions, it still showed them as a band with a very promising future.
