3 stars This was my first introduction to Deep Purple when I was a child, and it could be one of my first love with rock music at that time. I was visiting my big brother's house in Jakarta when the first time he played this album. "Fools" was the first track that blew me away when my brother, Boedi, started to play the cassette version of this track in his National Cassette Recorder - mono. (At that time "stereo" was a state of the art equipment and most of people could not afford to buy it). Not just Deep Purple that my brother played as he had also Grand Funk Railroad - hm .. I still remember that I also loved "I Can Feel Him In The Morning" from "Survival" album.

I repeated "Fools" many times on daily basis as I like the composition. It has excellent melody, varied style of hard and soft parts and good performance. The most part that I like is the interlude section with solo keyboard accompanied by drum. Oh yeas, what a nice childhood! The other tracks that attracted me were "Fireball" as it has powerful energy,"No No No", "Anyone's Daughter" and "The MUle". Keep on rockin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
