10/10 azi (May 22, 2006)
best gillan album ever-better than deep purple,yes , we will always love child in time, smoke..., etc, but this is really the highlight of his vocal career.
8/10 Eirik Solum (June 8, 2004)
This is a classic hard rock record from one of the history of rock's classic voices – Ian Gillan.

The band creatively called Gillan sounds dark, hard and performs at its peak here. "On the Rocks" sound majestic but not over the top. "Unchain Your Brain", "Running, White Face, City boy" is fast and hard. "If you Beleve Me" is bluesy with vierd guitar playing from Bernie Torme. Keyboardist Colin Towns also has a very distinct sound and is a important part of Gillan and Glory Road. Simply a very talented piano player, with a tuch of jazz/ fusion. Towns has later made music for sevral movies.

On "Glory Road" you can hear Ian Gillan at his best vocally and creativly, with great tunes and great performing from a exiting hard rock band. But don't expect Deep Purple II. This is a totally different approach. This is Gillan.

If you know this album you can review it.
