iTunes Review

Fireball—Deep Purple’s fifth album, and the second with their definitive Mark II lineup of Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice, and Blackmore—is often overlooked in the shadows of their previous album, Deep Purple in Rock, and the following one, the career-defining Machine Head. Hardcore fans know this album’s worth. However, many heavy metal fans whose favorite bands borrowed liberally from Deep Purple often overlook the group’s lesser-known works from this classic period. A shame, since Gillan’s vocals on the title track, “Anyone’s Daughter” “The Mule," and “No One Came” exemplify the genre's best elements, while the instrumental paces of “The Mule” and the remainder of the second side lean toward progressive rock without losing their essential heaviness. Machine Head would feature songs with larger, grander profiles, but Fireball deserves its props as a formidable work. This deluxe edition includes the original album, the often-substituted track “Strange Kind of Woman” for “Demon’s Eye,” the b-side “I’m Alone,” remixes, and outtakes.

iTunes, shame on you!

iTunes, you really show unprofessionalism and utter uninterest when reviewing and labeling these songs. Your hired staff's inompetence with labeling many of these classic rock albums by album name, song, and genre is not, I'm sure, how you want to portray yourselves. Get it right.

Great album,but a few little mistakes

First off, this is of course not pop. Second, they mislabeled Fools and The Mule. I actually did not know this until I got the CD. Aside from that, this is an excellent album by deep purple in their prime. Some excellent songs, especially Fireball, Strange kind of Woman, Anyones Daughter, a greatly underrated song, and Fools (which, as I said, is labeled as The Mule here)

Deep Purple survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community; once credited in The Guinness Book of World Records as the globe's loudest band, their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, and Ian Gillan. Deep Purple were formed in Hertford, England, in 1968, with an inaugural...
