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!

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.

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.

Released in 1971, Fireball is Deep Purple's fifth studio album and second with the classic and then current MK II Lineup of Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), Ian Gillan (vocals), Roger Glover (bass), John Lord (Organ, keyboards) and Ian Paice (Drums). Fireball has the unenviable fortune of being sandwiched between its predecessor, the successful and acclaimed In Rock album and its follow up Machine Head with THAT song on it everyone knows. It's a hard task to make a follow up to a great album like In Rock and while Fireball doesn't quite succeed it's still very much a good, classic record (sadly with the exception of Gillan it seems the majority of the band disagrees). It's hard not to compare it to other albums from the MK II lineup and it may seem a little less impressive, there are many songs I like but nothing really struck me as much as some of the other efforts except the title track.

"Fireball" the title track is a very fast and heavy opener with a great riff and Gillan's voice is aggressive, even the keyboards towards the end are excellent, a magnificent track to start an album with and I feel one of the best Purple songs, just my opinion. Sadly the first track is very much the peak of the album and the rest doesn't quite match or come up to its standard. "No, No, No" is a journey, it has great groove, progressions and it's unmistakably Purple. The highlight to me might the oddest, most out of place song on the album, "Anyone's Daughter". It doesn't sound or have much in common with the DP we know. It definitely has a folk feeling to it and isn't plugged in; it's a much softer song but an amazing one nonetheless. "The Mule" is my least liked track here. The same redundant drum rolls throughout make it tiring and it's too repetitive despite some interesting Organ/Keyboard work by Lord.
