AllMusic / Eduardo Rivadavia: “One of Deep Purple’s four indispensable
albums (the others being In Rock, Machine Head, and Burn), 1971’s Fireball
saw the band broadening out from the no-holds-barred hard rock direction
of the previous year’s cacophonous In Rock… Sure, the following year’s Machine
Head would provide Deep Purple with their commercial peak, but on Fireball,
the formidable quintet was already firing on all cylinders.

Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.
