5.0 out of 5 stars yes yes yes, 2 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Fireball - 25th Anniversary Edition (Audio CD)
Sandwiched between 'In Rock' and 'Machine Head,' arguably DP's most popular studio albums, 'Fireball' is more ambitious than both, but not as good as either. Class will show, however, and it's still a great album. The title track stands out as a reminder of what the band do best, namely high-tempo hard rock. Thereafter, they probe a surprising array of styles. 'No No No' is a mid-paced song, which Ian Gillan's vocal enlivens.
'Demon's Eye' is stronger, a suitably malevolent slice of hard rock. 'Anyone's Daughter' is the big surprise, sounding like the something you'd hear on Bob Dylan's 'Bringing It All Back Home,' complete with amusing lyric. I like this song, though it doesn't sound as if it belongs here. 'The Mule' is a minor masterpiece, full of exotic, almost psychedelic touches. The guv'nor on this track though is Ian Paice, whose circular rhythms give the track its shape. 'Fools' is a bit routine in places, but is punctuated by some eerie passages and 'No One Came' sees DP going back more to basics. The addition of 'Strange Kind Of Woman' is a major bonus. It might take a little adjusting to, but 'Fireball' is well worth your patience.
