5 stars Fireball has interesting fate with its release after the magical In Rock. Deep Purple have already become stardom and the expectation about them growing ad growing permanently. After first true hard rock album by Deep Purple - In Rock - almost everything is lost again for... hard rocking model of Deep Purple, but of course not for the quality of the music. The second consecutive transformation in the genre of the band came in inappropriate moment - when they catch hard rock wave; that's why so much people don't like this album enough. It is the time to talk about the genre of this album...

Blues rock in its biggest parts is the name of the genre. The first homonymous song is true hard rock masterpiece (like most of the first songs in Deep Purple's history). After that, it is time of the blues rock with the next three songs (2 - 4)... We receive another hard rock piece with The Mule and then it's turn of the best song on the album - Fools - this long song is a combination of psychedelic, hard and blues rock, preformed in refined manner. The last song on the original release is the weakest one - No One Came - a monotone one! And that's the end, but not if we talk about the remastered version of the album, where we can find one of the most popular songs made by Deep Purple - Strange Kind of Woman - just magic! True masterpiece of blues rock with refined elements of hard and psychedelic rock and very delicate folk rock fibres!!!
