5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Deep Purple at its best! Jan. 16 2004
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Fireball is classic Deep Purple At Its Best. Its has all the great ingrediants. The Classic Mark II lineup, and great songs. None of the songs on Fireball are weak they are all great and could hoold their own with anything on Machine Head, well almost everything I mean 'Highway Star' is untouchable.... but thats another discussion for another time!
Fireball is filled with great classics such as the incredable title track 'Fireball' and the insanly perfect 'Strange Kind Of Woman' Both of which offer amazing playing by the band. Fireball is Blackmores album, his guitar was never better and never more present then here. Songs like 'Strange Kind Of Woman' show off Blackmores amazing abillities on the guitar with its double solos. Other classics include 'Anyones Daughter' and 'Fool' both of which over the band at the top of their game.
Fireball is classic Deep Purple like I said, the whole band was at the top of its game. Fireball could very well hold its own with Machinehead, which by the way is concederd to be Deep Purples best album not to mention a landmark album for hard rock and heavy metal, and thats saying something!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their finest efforts Feb. 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fireball (1971.) Deep Purple's fifth album.
When a band switches lead singers, it can mean one of two things - the band will either go forward into a new golden age with unparalleled successes, or they will be forever damaged, and many of their fans will desert them. Deep Purple is fortunate enough to be one of the bands that falls into the former category. With their Deep Purple In Rock album, the band established that they could get along just fine without Rod Evans. And not long after the release of that album, the follow-up arrived. Read on for my review of 1971's Fireball.
The title track kicks off the album. This straight-up, fact-pased classic metal at its finest. The lyrics are top-notch, and the keyboard solo is great. The second track, No No No, is NOT the same song Def Leppard would record ten years later on their High 'N' Dry album - this is a seventies pop-rock tune done the way seventies pop-rock was meant to be heard. Once again, the keyboards are great. The most irregular song on the album is Anyone's Daughter, which sounds like a cross between Bob Dylan, David Bowie, and Lou Reed. Surprisingly, this manages to be a pretty good song, assuming Deep Purple doesn't nomally do songs of this style. Next up we have The Mule. This is a classic hard rocker, simiar to I'm So Glad, a song the band covered on their first album. Once again, it's a great song. Fools is a slower-paced track, but it's no less heavy than the other ones. And, of course, the band closes the album out with No One Came, a rocker that's the perfect fusion of sixties and seventies rock styles alike. All in all, this is one hell of album.
original American pressing of this album featured the track Strange Kind Of Woman, while the original British pressing featured the track Demon's Eye.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70's Band at it's best Jan. 4 2011
By Kaspar
Format:Audio CD
The Album kicks into high gear with the rolling track Fireball displaying what Deep Purple is known for; classic riffing from Blackmore, Powerhouse Left hand chording from Lord and the wailing vocals of Ian Gillan. Toss in the solid bass hit of Paice and Glover and you have an album that earns it's due in Rock. A rarity now as the album deserves it's right to be played as a Full album but still stands on it's feet with singles Strange Kind of Woman and The Mule but listen to the textured sounds of Fools and No One Came to understand fully the powerhouse musicianship that was and is Deep Purple.

5.0 out of 5 stars THINKING PERSONS HARD ROCK! Oct. 14 2003
By John
Format:Audio CD
If you like Deep Purple but don't own Fireball, you are in for a treat. This album is a hard rock masterpiece and Ian Gillan would totally agree with me. It's a shame that Fireball has been kind of forgotten about, it clearly holds up against In Rock and Who Do We Think We Are. If you're just starting to collect their albums, maybe you already have Machine Head, this one won't disappoint you. It is one of the great rock albums of the seventies.
The diverse highlights include: Fireball, Strange Kind of Woman, Anyone's Daughter, Fools and No One Came. (The 25th anniversary edition also includes additional highlights: Demon's Eye, I'm Alone and Freedom) I'd easily take this album over any Sabbath or Zeppelin album. Gillan sings far superior to Ozzy or Plant, Ritchie Blackmore plays a more classically tinged and intense guitar, Roger Glover plays a more hard driving aggressive bass, Ian Paice plays a more sophisticated style of drumming, that swings and Jon Lord brings keyboards to the table, which puts them miles ahead of their rivals.
One last note, This is the thinking persons rock music, raw and powerful. Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord and Paice are probably the best Deep Purple line-up of the seventies.
PS: Please check out their 2003 album, Bananas. It holds up well after a hundred hearings.
I would say it is right up there with their classic seventies material. That is not easy to do.

These guys were good (to a certain point) for three-minute songs. Five minutes it becomes hard to bear. But when they went into epic-prog-rock mode, boy, did they suck! Read more
