Format: Audio CD
Dio's fourth solo effort is markedly a departure from the last three in style. Although the format largely follows the same pattern of its predecessors (opening out and out rocker, followed by the title track and with the keyboard layered single sitting roughly where 'Rainbow In The Dark' did on 'Holy Diver' and 'Mystery' did on 'The Last In Line') the sound is much more seventies in style, almost Rainbow esque in places, and a lot more bluesy - this may simply be down to the introduction of guitar wizard Craig Goldie on guitar duties (it is most noticeable on the title track which trades heavily on the riff from Man on The Silver Mountain or on Overlove). From Dio's perspective the delivery is darker and more melancholic than on previous offerings but the result is an album that is streets ahead of the stodgy, ponderous and rather lacklustre Sacred Heart which precedes it. However it is not at the stratospheric level of the magnificent and consistent 'The Last in Line', which is Dio's post Sabbath high water mark, or say Sabbath's Heaven and Hell.

Highlights are the pulsating and jabbing opener 'Night People', the reflective and emotionally tinged `All the Fools Sailed Away' and the mandatory key board infused single `I Could Have Been A Dreamer'. 'Sunset Superman' also has a peculiar charm, despite it's baffling title, and 'Naked in the Rain' comes closest to the grander style of 'The Last In Line'.

On the down side the production is a little stiff and unfocussed, the keyboards sound as if they are being played with Claude Schnell's fist and the drumming is surprisingly pedestrian (by Appice standards). Unfortunately, like Sacred Heart, the whole piece fizzles out with the two weakest songs at the end, both hampered by notably weak choruses.

Dio's fourth album Dream Evil is the last studio album to feature Claude Schnell and the first to feature gutiarist Craig Goldy (previously of Rough Cutt, but not at the same time as Claude.) Craig ably and deftly handles guitar duties and although his style is slightly different to previous guitarist Vivian Campbell, fits into the overall Dio sound perfectly.

Dream Evil is a bit of an interesting one, in that some fans say it isn't as good as the first three (or two in some cases) albums and some say that it is great and the last good Dio album. Personally I find Dream Evil to be everything I want in a Dio album, I think it is strong and well written, I like the general style and the majority of the songs are up there with the best Dio has to offer.

I will admit that there are one or two songs that seem a tad weak or generic when listening to the album from beginning to end, but which are fine in isolation. Still, the album contains tracks like 'Sunset Superman,' 'Dream Evil,' and 'All The Fools Sailed Away,' that no right minded Dio fan could ignore, some of the best material the band put out and essential for any best of compilation.

The only real problem I can find with Dream Evil is that the production (largely because of the keyboard sound) has dated somewhat, which may be a problem for some fans who only like Dio's harder and heavier material... but the band slowly introduced keyboards more and more over the previous three albums and it just feels like the logical progression here.

Having already purchased "Holy Diver", "The Last In Line" & "Sacred Heart", I was very excited when I got the email from amazon about the release of Dio's "Dream Evil" as a "Deluxe Version". The first 3 titles had, in my opinion, all lived up to the "Deluxe Version" billing, however, to say that I am disappointed with "Dream Evil" is an understatement. I played Disc 1 back to back with the original, and although it sounds "cleaner" (for want of a better word), there's not to choose much between the two. Disc 2 is a huge disappointment, to say the least! Bonus tracks?? Pah!!! The live tracks are the MoR 1987 gig, already available as Disc 2 of the "Dio at Donnington" live album. Throwing in the "single edit" of "I Could Have Been A Dreamer" and "Hide In The Rainbow" from the "Dio EP" stinks of pure lack of thought. Are you seriously trying to convince me that there are not other live tracks or alternative version of the orignal album avavilable somewhere? Come on!! Treat the memory of one of Heavy Metals true legends with a bit more respect!!
