Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
2 stars How does one follow such a immensely successful album such IAGDV? Well try you best shot at duplicating it might be such an answer or go even further out in the groundbreaking!!! By listening to this album, IB chose the first solution but unfortunately got lost in the process and eventually went backwards. The album still sold quite a bit (peaking at #3) and the two single cracked the top 100, but clearly for everyone, deception was at hand. Even the artwork is completely deceiving.

If the opener In The Time Of Our Lives holds much promise of progression on their previous album, we are quickly deceived by the next two tracks where their Soul- Motown influences resurface (and almost insufferably so in the overlong Lonely Boy - good soul voice though for a honkey ;-) and Real Fright goes back to their garage roots. All of the tracks (bar the opener) are more of a pop flavor, be it in the Motown or the more white-persuasion but the psych flavor is almost out and so is the progressive one. The only other track that reminds you of the previous IB is Filled With Fear. Also worthy of a mention is Belda-Beast, but not essential, either.

Clearly with this album IB went for broke, and they broke the hopes of many. Not that the album is bad, far from it, but this is clearly not what one expects of them. Just a one-letter change from the album title would have been more appropriate. For unconditional fans only.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars The band is at the peak of their fame in 1969. Their previous album In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is still charting and this Ball album is even going to a higher raking than its world-known predecessor (sources differ since on the band's web-site, it is claimed to have reached the first spot, while other sources mention a third place).

The band should have been present at Woodstock as wel that year. Since they were stuck at an airport and that the situation around the spot of the festival was a total chaos, they asked to be brought back and forth to the festival site by helicopter; but this request was never truly considered by the festival organizers.

They probably missed a great opportunity to impress the world. I guess that In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida played at Woodstock would have had the same meaning for Iron Butterfly than I'm Going Home for TYA or Soul Sacrifice for Santana. But we'll never know.

The heavy psychedelia is always part of their sound (thank god) and as such, the opener In The Time Of Our Lives is probably the best you can get in here. They keep on with the music that was so influential to Mark I (Purple). While being a heavy track, it is a middle tempo one with a fine melody sustained by languishing keyboards.

The overall mood is also more soul oriented which is maybe not the best move they have made so far. The well names Soul Experience almost sounds as if it were coming out the Motown repertoire.

On this album, the production and the overall sound quality are much better than on their two previous releases and the music is more polished, but at times too syrupy IMO like Lonely Boy and In The Crowd. Again, Motown is just next door.

It is a pity because when the band stick to his basic psychedelic rock music, they are still able to produce fine numbers. I would just have liked to get some more like Real Fright.

At this stage of the album, Iron Butterfly tries to convince that they can still rock, but It must Be Love is only a passable song which is saved by a fine guitar solo. The overall heavy-jazzy beat can not really overwhelm me.

The next good song is the conventional and heavy Filled With Fear. It demonstrates that once again, they are much more at ease in this psyche rock mood that these ugly Motown sounds. The scary feeling provided by the backings is quite pleasant as well.

The closing number has some Doors flavour due the to the organ sound. It holds some burlesque mood as well and although it is enjoyable, we are not confronted with a masterpiece either.

This album features a couple of songs but I can hardly consider it as a good album. Two stars.

4 stars "Your hopes are bouncing in front of your eyes, As you jump to catch them floating so high, Bye, bye..." What a shame that "Ball" so underrated - not only on this site, but in general too.

5 stars Sure there is no In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, but there is a whole album better than that! and Ball IS that album!

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.
