4 stars 8/10

It is not easy for any album when it is wedged between two masterpieces, but as far as I ever met Deep Purple Fireball see the work as a pair of In Rock ('ll know soon if Machine Head is as good as). Not many acute here - thank Ian Gillian! - And a greater interest in experimentation. Could you imagine a song like Anyone's Daughter composed by the band. And tell me that Fools isn't progressive rock?

In fact there is not a song here that can be seen as a single, a commercial success, but that's not what interests me, but just the fact that fireball is markedly different from its predecessor. The guitar solo in Blackmore Fools is unlike anything he's ever done before, and rightfully so is one of his best (like music). Other highlights are the very Anyone's Daughter (a song that, "I do not know why," brings shame to the group!) And closure No One Came.

Anyway, I liked this album, even though the band not cherish it. 4 stars!
