Tarball is slang, but it's considered common usage, if you want to be
semantically correct a tar.gz or tar.bz file is a compressed tarball.
There's not really another term beyond compressed tarball, which is
probably why tarball has become synonymous with both a tar archive and
a compressed tar archive, but it's not correct per se.

Also a tarbomb is a tar archive that offloads its content into the
current directory, don't you just hate it when they do that.
