Gillan is the debut studio album by British hard rock band Gillan, released in September 1978. All songs written by Ian Gillan and Colin Towns except where noted.

These appear on the 1993 RPM release Gillan - The Japanese Album, see Gillan (album) Used as a B-side to the UK Trouble single and appears on the first release of Future Shock on CD as a bonus track The album comes with a 4 page black and white booklet with linernotes. Most of them are in Japanese but some are in English. The last ones are signed by Ian Gillan. One page has the lyrics in English.

And he never sounded more Purple-ish than he does on Mr. Universe, which isn't quite on a par with Purple's Burn but is stronger than many of the albums the outfit had recorded after Gillan's departure (some of which were quite disappointing). This is Gillan at his most aggressive and passionately rockin'. Those with fond memories of his work with Purple will appreciate the testosterone-driven energy of "Vengeance," "Roller," and "Message in a Bottle. Headbangers shouldn't overlook this one.

This album is hard and fast though at times some songs sound similar. Roller', 'secret of the Dance', 'Dead of Night' and the title song are great numbers. But the masterpiece here is 'Fighting Man' giving Ian the opportunity to show his singing ability. If you like this album then try the Gillan albums with Bernie Torme like 'Glory Road'(which is my favourite hard rock album after 'Deep purple in Rock' and & Head') and 'Future Shock'. 3 people found this helpful.
