    I've tried getting into this one for years but I just can't seem to do that. No disrespect on behalf of Simon Wright, but after Vinny Appice's jammy drumming style I find the drumming here very stiff and uninspired. I don't know what happened to Craig Coldy after "Dream Evil" either... His riffing just got stiff, flat and boring as well. Dio's vocals and melodies still sound great as always, but the music is just lacking. Not a bad album, though. Just not what I'd call essential Dio.

    On this album the guitars take a backseat, bringing the keyboards more upfront together with Dio's vocals. Because of that, I think this is one of the most atmospheric and solo-sounding albums he ever did. Another killer!

    The guitars need turning up. That's what stops this from being a great Dio album.
