This is more like it, after the disappointment that was "Intermission". Definitely back on form. Great vocals, strong guitars from newbie, Craig Goldie. The whole band have lifted their game for this superb offering. This does not stray from the good vs. evil template that served Dio so well over the years. The lyrics aside, the tunes stand up well nearly 25 years later and have aged far better than many of the "metal" bands that were Dio's contemporaries. One of 1987's better rock records that deserves it's place in any rock collection. Contains everything that made Dio great.
