3 stars l underestimated but valuable "Ball" went the LP that continued to their more emblematic album, the one than "In-to-gadda-give-life" contained its hymn, titleholder just as the well- known single homónimo. In "Ball", Doug Ingle and its band tried to disperse to its sounds acid-rock, and with its indebted vocalidad of black guidelines, in subjects less extensive than they mainly did not lose indebted lysergic textures of the Doors, and that improved their melódica construction, they presented/displayed a remarkable collection of subjects rock with poperos, psicodélicos and progressive pieces, that they denoted in a its thematic existencial temporary preoccupation, expression of personal freedom and outlines of loving sentimentality, all it in atmospheres of shady tonality. The disc, of heterogenous tempos, reveals an instrumental excellence and a praiseworthy work in choirs that help to favor an atmosphere that mixes the sallow thing with the placidness, special meaning for the keyboards of Ingle and the vigorous work of Lee Dorman in the low one, although all the components contribute, beyond the functionality of their instruments, a considerable contribution to the musical wealth of compositions of high level, very disfrutables in the mid term.
