All The Time in The World

For all those who have missed the song on the radio, Deep Purple’s record label has posted All The Time in The World. Bear in mind that this is the radio edit, i.e. version of the song intentionally made to sound as much commercial as possible by shortening the solos, instrumental breaks, and/or altering the mix.

    See, people just as I said on the last topic, it’s a radio edit, it’s mixeed this way to sound radio friendly.
    You guys, it’s snippet, cut and shortened specially for the radio this is not the version we will hear on the album.
    I bet the album version is longer, and maybe even has a nice organ solo to match the guitar solo whitch probably is also cut short for this radio edit.
    We are all creating panic, and make statement out of nothing.
    Be realistic, and keep an open mind, we know these guys can play, have some more faith in them for heaven’s sake.

    In listening to it a couple of times, it is obvious they have edited it to the point it does an injustice to the song. I am confident the Album version will take on a whole different feel. If I am correct, I believe it is cut in about half. That leaves room for a lot of interludes that will come through and please those whom aren’t hell bent on SOS. It’s growing on me quite quickly as it is. Looking forward to the finished product with full sound, not ‘squeezed’ edit-wise and MP3-wise.

    Some parts of the song gives me a vibe of that old song wishing well with Free ,Blackfoot, but with a much moore poplike commersial sound. but not near as god as that song.
    Cant say i like it, actually this radio edit sucks. If the album release is anything like it i will feel that ive been DP porntermwise if i bought it.
    Doesent sound much like anything done before by the purps and that could have been a good thing. but not this time.
    Hope that this track is the weakest on the album, if not they are in some serious truble.
    And they shouldent have realesed this in the name of DP nothing exiting happends on this track.
    I do hope that the next song i hear from this album is way much better and makes me wanna go out and buy it.

    Ohh my god what i miss RB and JL

    I enjoyed this tune. It was friendly to Gillan’s vocal range. A bit commercial– however closing in to my mid 50’s you have to brake sometimes….

    MacGregor says:

    This song has a strong melody from Gillan & a nice guitar solo from Morse that embellishes the song, well at least the part of the song we are hearing! The sound quality doesn’t bother me at this moment in time, we can hear the music & words enough to judge & be critical & be negative even! Man I love being negative, it is such a powerful feeling! Hang on a minute, I thought I was being positive in liking this song? Now I am confused, am I being positive or negative? Hmmmmmm, I need someone to inform me which one? Any takers? Tracy?

    I’m looking forward to a warm summer after a long, cold winter. This album will be the soundtrack. Thank you, DP, for a beautiful gift.

    With kudos to Tracy,MacGregor,and others who have managed to find any hint of a silver lining in this lacklustre,dark cloud of a song,isn’t an advanced single supposed to generate excitement around a forthcoming album ?? If so major record company errors were made in choosing All the Time.. to announce a new Deep Purple album to the world.Past attempts at a commercial,radio-friendly single have failed ( Call Of The Wild/Haunted/Girls Like That),why not gamely admit that Purple is not a commercial band ?? Absolutely nothing about All the Time …says ” Deep Purple are still alive & rockin’ ,Grab the new album coming soon !!”
    The only thing this 3:48 mis-fire does is make me hope it’s not any indication of what’s on the rest of Now What ?!…Which,admittedly,I will buy on the day it’s released.

    Hey Ms. MacGregor, if you don’t know the difference between Positive and Negative, you are obviously experiencing ‘menopause’. Very little logic when in that phase of life. I’ve known a few ‘girls like that’. Might want to look into ‘hormone treatment’. Might just save your life. Please don’t feel you’ve been ‘mistreated’ here. I’m ‘not responsible’.

    MacGregor says:

    Mike @ 10 – With respect Mike, I don’t love the song nor am I blown away by it! It does have a good Gillan melody though & the Morse guitar solo bit fits the song, as a good guitar solo should! But I agree with your comments regarding a commercial single release from a record company. Deep Purple are a rock band, a harder rock song sample or release would suffice for rabid Purple fans! Not a ballad type of song, but there may be harder rock music continuing on with this piece. It may be their way of enticing interest from the die hard fans out there! Cheers.

    Having been a fan of DP since 1968! I’m so glad that we have both come a long way together with all the changes that life brings this new song is like growing up. It is a breath of fresh air that we are both taking together, thank you boys for all the great music we sure have seen some time together.
    Cheers! & Godbless!

    I like it but it is a strange choice for a first single. It sounds a little bit as taken of Dreamcatcher.

    I love it!

    @ Mike Whiteley. BBC Radio 2 (the biggest station in the UK by audience figures) played the single on Simon Mayo’s show (one of the biggest on that station with nearly 6m listeners(big in UK terms)) and it had a great reaction – the show hyped the play of it a load too! I’ve heard from a lot of people who are very casual music fans that they love the song!

    This already far surpasses anything that happened with Bananas and RoTD in respect of getting it out there so in my opinion the record company are doing a fantastic job and seem to have picked a reasonable song. I think they know what they’re doing and their expertise in this area may slightly surpass your own – they deserve credit!

    Is this the most tedious peice of junk i have heard for a long time….i was right all along they should have retired years ago ./….all these years and this is all they can come up with!!!!!! give it up boys time for new bands to take over…..

    xcllranderson says:

    First hearings can be deceptive. It was for me, but this song does grow on you. Give it time. I think it is up there with the best of the Morse era. For sure, the days of Speed King and Highway Star are long gone, but then that was 40 years ago! Blackmore and, sadly Lord, are not coming back. Morse and Airey have certainly added a new dimension. Let’s rejoice that our favourite band is back on the scene and wait and see what joys the album brings. here’s hoping…

    RB says:

    Really want the new album to be great, and diverse like ‘Purpendicular’, but from interviews with Steve this isn’t going to be the case, unfortunately. What I don’t understand is that why bother releasing a single in today’s current market? Gillan seems to be sounding more and more like Chris Rea, and the song is pretty bland. Perhaps part of the problem lies in the fact that not all members of the band were that keen on making another album (Roger did mention this)? Purple had become a solely touring entity which was lucrative but incessant, and I do worry that it may have dulled their creativity. I am keeping an open mind and want the the new album to prove me wrong so that Purple go out with a bang. After all, I can’t imagine there being anymore albums after this one. I have this feeling that they may continue up until Gillan hits 70 (2015) and then call it a day. It will be sad but I do feel that the band is sounding fairly tired.

    George Martin says:

    Now that I have had a chance to listen to it a few times I am ready to make a comment on it. Overall I really like the song. Everything about it sounds really good to me. I can easily see this song replacing When A Blind Man Cries in concert for a nice new ballad. It reminds me of something George Harrison would have done back in the early to mid 70’s. Listen to the song, remove Ian Gillan and substitute George Harrison vocals and it sounds like a Harrison song. I asked a few people to listen and see if I am crazy by saying this but they all agree with me. Don’t interpret that as a knock on Gillan just the opposite. It sounds great to me. Like I said before overall a solid tune. Can’t wait for the new album to come out!

    stoffer says:

    After 2 days and many listens it grows a lot………..IG sounds great, unedited version will no doubt bring out more Morse and Ariey while Paicey and Roger keep a nice groove. Every DP album has a ballad, so is this that bad?! I think not, I do hope the rest of the LP really rocks or at least as much as 60 year olds can, heck I am very close myself!? Lets keep an open mind and enjoy them while we can……

    Mike Whiteley says:

    @ 18. I didn’t claim any expertise,Black Sheep. I merely expressed the opinion that there must be a more exciting tune to represent the new album.I just can’t imagine the casual rock music fan hurrying to buy Now What ?! based on hearing All the Time In The World.That’s all.

  27. 27
    LRT says:

    Chris Rea wishes he sounded like Ian Gillan. I had my negative hat on about this track until today when I finally got Morse actually shining thru with a melodic solo. He just sticks to the melody for once and it does resemble some classic Purple spirit for once. I think both of these edits are likely just them easing the least out of the way first.

  28. 28
    T says:

    This song would be right at home on Dreamcatcher. Ian Gillan is definitely pointing the direction and his strong influence continues.

    That said, the guitar is very reminiscent of the Purpendicular sound. A Hammond solo is highly suggested and might be included in the non-edited version.

    This is an obvious single–a smooth-sounding song and very radio-friendly if only DJ’s would play it. I have listened to the clip several times and the song tends to stick in one’s head. It tends to get better the more times it is played.

    I was hoping for something more along the lines of “Out of My Mind”–but that still could lie elsewhere on the album. Singles are not always indicative of the best song on an album. Remember “Never Before”?

    tim says:

    Now the first thing that leaps out after a listen is that this sounds like a song that would have sat in good company on Bananas , the Vocal the Guitar sounds like an out take from those sessions.

    The more you listen you here bits of Haunted in the chorus as well.
    It is of course totally inoffensive in any way,but so unremarkable just simple gently plodding along until the end.
    Radio 2 is a perfect home for the song.
    Hope that there is better,much better to come

    Wally roundhead says:

    I think it’s great!

    The two songs avaliable are different in many ways, but theres many connections in each song to make them sound familiar, yet fresh!

    I think Bob did good!

    All the time in the world, radio edit, grows with each listening, and by the second time the catchy melody and superb vocals just hits the nail on the head. The refrain is the weakest part of the song, but all in all this is far better than most peers could come up with these days.
    Hell to pay is a typical deep purple rocker. Sounds very fresh and inspiring to me!

    I cant wait for the album!

    Boswell's Johnson says:

    I’m pumped for the album. Still don’t dig the chorus (read: the choir) in Hell to Pay, but the rest of the song is great. A lot of energy. Great stuff.

    The lost song from One eye to Morocco ??
    Nice I like

    Prem says:

    Good stuff. Much better than the star studded “who cares” project. No matter who trashes this, this is purple stuff. Mebbe a bit more mellow, but good quality stuff. Gillan sounds good no matter that in concerts it is quite opposite after a couple of numbers, put that down to age. the rest of the band is predictable, no surprises and no disappointments either. I will buy this one. Cheers!! Way to go mates..

    Barfy Gypsy says:

    The music in this album teaser http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePb78Ont8Ts sounds a 100 times more interesting than that dull shit of a radio edit song, All the time in the world .
    I guess some people that gives that song thumbs up now, does so just because its Purple. It doesent sound like Deep Purple.
    More Like Deep Boring.

    No – it’s cos we love it

    I really like the steel guitar on this! I hope it’s more prominent in the album mix.

    LRT says:

    I’m somehow inclined to think people don’t understand what growth means, in this case the term would be “grower” as it took the distance to click with me, simply because of preconceived notion about ballads and slow numbers., to be honest about this track. Be fair, let it sink in. It’s good and for once in his life Morse approaches a solo by sticking to the vocal melody in DP song, which must be like some kind of mystery formula to him, because he tends to alternatively go against the arrangement to somehow express himself. This is what I would call good containment of him for once. As for the sound, it puzzles me how anyone can determine great sound and production values from a hollowed out destroyed .mp3 file. Unless these radio edits are .flac’s, which I don’t think they are because of the mass compression detection in the solo section of Hell To Pay.

  45. 45
    RB says:

    Finally got to hear ‘Hell To Pay’ and I’m still underwhelmed. If both songs were on a Gillan solo album then it would seem a better fit for me, but this is Deep Purple and I just expect more from them I suppose.

  46. 46
    Boswell's Johnson says:

    Heard the album version. Even better! Lots of tasty steel geetar.

    Toytus – another Gillan deliberate mispronunciation. Tortoise. For an explanation, look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeno%27s_paradoxes
