Rating: 8 Great old school album

Rating: 7 Perhaps it's because of the fact that 'Fireball' came after the monumental 'In rock', but I just can't quite get into this album the same way I could with other Purple albums such as 'Machine head' or 'Burn'. The vocals on this seem to me quite weak in comparison to the previous album, yet the instrumentation is still more-or-less top notch. Lord's keyboard interludes on the title track and 'The mule' are as eccentric as ever, and Ritchie Blackmore's varied guitar style offers a few surprises here and there. The album I think could have done without the so-so 'Anyone's daughter' and 'Mule' just seems to be too simplistic for its own good, but generally this is another example of why Deep Purple were one of the most promising Rock bands of the 70s.

Rating: 9 One of my favourite Deep Purple albums. It's musically more varied than the albums it's sandwiched between, and "Fools" is a Top 3 Purple song.
