I must admit when i first bought this back in '85,i was slightly disappointed,as it didnt match up to the 2 previous albums,still doesnt to be fair,it has grown on me though.

Highlights the classic title track,2 perfect heavy rock anthems 'Rock n Roll Children/King of Rock n Roll' and the superb 'Fallen Angels',the rest decent but a bit of a rehash of what went before.

Previously i would have given 3 stars but the deluxe edition scores an extra star for disc 2,as we get some live b sides,non album track but special kudos for the inclusion of the complete 'intermission' mini live album from 1986,a superb touch

Packaging excellent agian decent photos/liner notes and once again a definite upgrade in the sound from earlier cd releases,clearer without being too 'bright'

So thats three excellent released to make an old rocker happy,thanx to the kids for the birthday presents,ha ha,they do listen after all!!!

This edition of Sacred is remastered by Andy Pearce as are the other Dio 2012 deluxe releases, which means, unlike other Deluxe Editions out there, this one isn't simply a volume bloated re-release. Very fine, clean and detailed sound, but just a tad bright. Disc 2 has some wonderful goodies that alone make this worthy of the purchase. Live B-Sides from singles and the Intermission live album which was never commercially available in the US. The packaging is your standard for these editions, a wonderful foldout digipak and an informative booklet stuffed into one of the open flaps. Highly recommended edition if you have the cash. A more detailed tracklist below.

Disc 1 (Original remastered album)

01. King of Rock and Roll
02. Sacred Heart
03. Another Lie
04. Rock 'n' Roll Children
05. Hungry for Heaven
06. Like the Beat of a Heart
07. Just Another Day
08. Fallen Angels
09. Shoot Shoot

Disc 2

01. Hide in the Rainbow (Studio track, originally on the soundtrack to the movie Iron Eagle)
02. We Rock (Live B-Side from Rock N Roll Children Single)

04. Like the Beat of a Heart (Live B-Side from Hungry For Heaven Single)

The Last In Line was a high water mark for Dio in his solo career and nothing subsequently has come close to touching it's level of sheer craftsmanship and energy. Following it up was always going to be tricky and Sacred Heart really isn't up to the job. Whereas LIL crackled and sparkled with ideas, this is a fairly straightforward delivery of some pretty basic arrangements (in Dio terms).

Opener `King of Rock n Roll', like 'We Rock' and 'Stand Up and Shout' on previous Dio CDs, is a frenetic kick off, harping pack to Dio's Rainbow harder moments (e.g. think 'King of Rock N Roll'). However it is dogged throughout by an annoying fake crowd noise which is designed to give a live energy feeling to the song but simply sounds electronic and contrived. The title track Sacred Heart is up second as 'Holy Diver', 'Last In Line' and 'Dream Evil' all sat in their respective albums running order. This plodder is distinctly the weakest of the aforementioned armoury of title tracks. It's not bad but it just isn't up to Dio's normal standard, lumbering as it does to a conclusion through a jarring and annoying keyboard effect. `Another Lie is a straight forward, bass driven, rocker and distinctly a high point in terms of catchiness and power. `Rock N Roll Children' is a keyboard layered melodic radio friendly single which closes out what was side 1 on a high note, however `Hungry for Heaven' is twaddle and quickly despatched before the pairing of `Beat of a Heart' ( a song that transferred well to a live setting during the Sacred Hear Tour) and `Just Another Day' redeem the album back to 3 stars (the latter's opening riff copied straight from Black Sabbath's Neon Nights). Finally the album fizzles out with `Fallen Angels' and the wholly lamentable and limp `Shoot Shoot'.

DIO Reissues Holy Diver The Last In Line Sacred Heart

It's nearly two years now since the greatest hard rock singer of all time died. Ronnie James Dio, whether with Rainbow, Black Sabbath of his own band Dio, contributed some of the greatest moments in hard rock history. There aren't many musicians who become adjectives but Dio was one of them.

Now, the first three albums he recorded with his own band, after parting from Black Sabbath, are being reissued as double CD editions, chock full of fantastic music. Each one comes with a booklet notes from Malcolm Dome and the releases are endorsed by Ronnie's widow Wendy Dio.

"Holy Diver" was the debut from Dio, released in 1983. It's widely regarded as his finest ever album under his own name, but you won't be surprised to learn that I disagree. Even at the time, as an over exciteable teenager I remember thinking through a cloud of cider that it sounded really flat. I'd heard most of his Rainbow and Sabbath albums by then, and I knew a rotten production when I heard it. There's no faulting some of the songs on offer, from the title track to 'Don't Talk To Strangers', but even today, a lot of it leaves me wanting more.

However, over on the second CD there are some real goodies. A couple of single B-sides including the awesome 'Evil Eyes', a song that should have easily dislodged a number from the main album, as well as a set recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour with cracking versions of 'Man On The Silver Mountain' and 'Stand Up And Shout' the highlights. There's nothing the dedicated collector won't have, but it's a nice package.

"The Last in Line" was the second Dio studio album and, for me, remains one of the best moments in Dio history.
