5 stars This is the sequel to DP In Rock. You can realize that with the first few bars of Highway Star. Mr Blackmore's bad mood has gone and he's willing to co-operate with the rest of the band again. And here we go: Highway Star, Pictures of Home, Smoke..., Lazy, Space Truckin'. Bam-Bam-Bam. Only Maybe I'm a Leo and the horrible Never Before fall flat. I think it's impossible to say whether In Rock or Machine head is better - both have their merits, both have exciting music. In Rock is uncompromising, MH more versatile. Lazy would have been well-nigh impossible on In Rock. It would have made a fine impression on Fireball, though. If In Rock is the father then Fireball is the mother of the new born baby. Get the re-issue if you can. It's amazing to hear them guys simply stop playing when they accomplished the parts that will later be used as fade-outs. Cool. 5 stars
