4 stars Follow after the stunning In rock, DP took their prog roots to a more and more hard rock orentation. Not as proggy as In Rock and not as intristing and well done as Machine Head, Fireball remains for many the most interesting and confident DP album of the seventies. The album has a lots of hight points like the title track, a hard rock tune with great beat from Ian Paice on drums, also the guitar is very good. Maybe The mule and Fools are the most prog parts of the album, like the early days, but my favourite piece from here is by far Anyone's Daughter, and one my fav from entire DP catalog. Very funny lyrics and very catchy song. Again, to me they don't sound really prog but a combination of prog with hard rock elements, in fact Deep Purple is one of the pioneers of hard rock, so i don't consider them a trully prog band like genesis or Jethro Tull for ex. So a great album, among the best DP albums and an essential piece for everybody. 4 stars
