5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Class 22 Nov 2010
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In hindsight we all now know the background to Ronnie James Dio's health at the time of this recording,its a testament to the man's quality and class that he turned in a superb performance,apart from the occasional strained vocal or voice tailing off this is as good a vocal performance as i've heard from Ronnie.

From the off the band are in fine form and from the thundering opening of 'Mob Rules' to the monstrous finale of 'Neon Knights' they prove just how heavy they could be.

Highlights? plenty,the entire disc is choc full of them, from the majestic 'Children of the Sea' to the poignant sadness of the opening lyrics of 'Falling Of The Edge Of The World',the reality surely not lost on anyone in the band at the time,nor those now listening.

We can only wonder at what might have been as the newer tracks from 'The Devil You Know' release stand shoulder to shoulder with the earlier classics,as equals,particularly 'Bible Black'.

Special mention must also be given to the other band members Butler/Appice & Warren put in sterling performances,whilst Iommi gives a masterclass above and beyond the call of duty,the mans playing quite simply mesmeric,possibly his best live recorded performance in my humble opinion.

However we cannot ignore what happened ,in Dio we had a timeless vocalist a legend from the last 4 decades,we wont see his like again,Rest In Peace Ronnie, this is a superb testament to your strenght and character as well as your peerless vocals.

By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

When Heaven & Hell got back together to record three new songs for the 2006 compilation album, "Black Sabbath: The Dio Years", it seemed that we were in for a final flourish of heavy metal glory from the old campaigners. When they decided to stick together for a tour, it was a monumental moment, and on said reunion tour grown men were spotted crying at the majesty that was being unfurled before them.

Rather than a one off flourish they stayed together to record a reunion studio album, "The Devil You Know" which, if not great, was certainly good enough to be filed alongside their all too brief musical history from 'Heaven & Hell" through "Mob Rules" and onto the later "Dehumaniser".

It's inevitable that this final release is overshadowed by the death of Ronnie James Dio from cancer earlier this year, but at least we have a farewell performance from the man, recorded in 2009 at the Wacken Festival in Germany, shortly before he was diagnosed with cancer. That alone makes it hard to be objective, especially as there are a few strained vocal lines here and there, most notably on 'Time Machine'. which is not something you associate vocalist supreme Dio with, but hindsight does make those few moments all the more poignant.

However, in general, this is a fairly worthy addition to the catalogue of Heaven & Hell / Black Sabbath, call them what you will, with Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice in impeccable form, augmented by Scott Warren from Dio's solo band on keyboards. Having said that, I'd be hard pushed to recommend this above "Heaven & Hell: Live from Radio City Music Hall", the double CD and DVD that came out back in 2007.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blaze of glory 8 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
A fitting epitaph for one of the grearest voices of in Rock history. I know it's been said many times,but it is true. I've been a fan of Ronnie James Dio since I heard 'Man On The Silver Mountain' when that first Rainbow album was released back in '75. It's quite significant that when Dio and Blackmore parted company, it was Dio's idea, and not Blackmore's.Ritchie knew when he was onto a good thing. Rainbow were never the same again.so I was very pleasantly surprised when Ronnie James Dio resurfaced a few years later as Ozzy's replacement in Black Sabbath. I listened to this on Tommy Vance's slot on Radio 1. He played Heaven and Hell from the newly released album of the same name.He played the title track in it's entirety.There followed a stunned silence.It seemed like it was from both the broadcaster as well as the listener, and Tommy Vance said;'Wow, didn't he do well!' And it was true.This was a marriage made in Heaven,(and Hell). This line up, in my opinion was perfected by the inclusion of Vinny Appice. Bill Ward's heart was never in this line up, And Vinny's sound was/is harder and more suited to this more energetic line up.As a line up it was too good to be confined to the annals of rock history, and re surfaced some ten years later to do Dehumanizer.It re surfaced again in 2007 and proved better than ever ! Good rock musicians don't get old, they just mature and get better at their craft. 2009's The Devil You Know paid testament to this! Then came the shock of Ronnie James Dio's death of stomach cancer. Taken from us at the height of his powers. His voice had matured, becoming a little deeper and gruffer, but losing none of it's power and expressiveness. The consolation, if that is the right word, is this awesome live offering; Neon Knights, Live At Wacken. Read more ›
