I purchased this CD recently, without particularly high expectations, as I assumed that it would be just another typical heavy metal release, not particularly different from any other in 2005. However, having listened to the CD a few times over, and being a long standing fan of Ronnie James Dio, I can honestly say that this must be one of the definitive hard rock performances of recent years, as it is difficult for me to envisage many other bands in the same genre coming anywhere near this level of performance. Clearly, the pitch of Dio's vocals has lowered somewhat in recent years, but this bears no importance in relation to the dynamics of this particular show, which showcases Doug Aldrich's superb guitar playing within an incredibly tight band. The highlights of the show are (I think) Don't Talk To Strangers, Heaven & Hell, and Aldrich's solo during Shame On The Night. Without any shadow of doubt, Ronnie Dio is as strong a performer as he has ever been, having found his way again after losing the plot somewhat during the 1990's. An essential purchase if you are a fan of classic hard rock/metal, young or old, new to Dio's stuff or familiar with it. There is very little else around to compete with this.
