3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 stars .. the end was nigh 10 Jun 2010
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Another album another line up,hard to believe in 4 short years Blackmore now the sole remaining member,as with the previous release this shows the good,the bad and the downright ugly side of Rainbow.

The Good was in short supply ,its a travesty that a track such as the Zeppelinesque beauty of 'Eyes Of Fire' has to languish on an album as average as this,Blackmores guitar playing a joy to behold,while the Foriegner/Journey clone that is 'Stone Cold' confirms why he hired Turner as vocalist,he's perfect for that type of song and he's excellent on the Free'like 'Tearin Out My Heart'.

the bad well while 'Death Alley Driver/Power' are competently performed but boring,been done before and if 'Tite Squeeze' sounds familiar its because it has,thats the riff to LA Connection right there.

The ugly well 'Bring On The Night/Miss Mistreated and Rock Fever' are just crap

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent release overall 23 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
I must admit I can see why this particular Rainbow album divides their fans so much. The fact that Mr Blackmore changed the members of the band regularly (as per a certain Mr Coverdale) its not surprising we all have our favourite versions of this great band. You need to try and get past the fact you may prefer Ronnie James Dio as a vocalist or that by this album they had taken a different direction musically and try to be objective. Especially if you are like me a fan of the man in black - Richie Blackmore. Overall this is one of the better Rainbow albums. Joe Lynn Turner is an excellent vocalist with a strong voice. Pretty much every song is worth its place on the album. I also believe it stands up well against previous albums. Yes its a little more commercial but that doesnt make it rubbish. There is some blistering fretwork on this and I think its a brilliant album. A good solid rock album. Buy it.

This was the album where Ritchie Blackmore started to get the formula right for creating AOR albums. This is a lot more solid an offering than `Difficult to cure`. There are plenty of highlights, the opener `Death alley driver`, the hit single `Stone cold` and my own personal favourite `Eyes of fire`. If you have only heard the early albums then this will cause a shock with its radio friendly sound but it is still a good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best JLT Rainbow Era Album 4 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a massive Rainbow Fan, got all their albums, and this is one of their Best albums...best way to accept it is to realize that Joe Lynn Turner doesn't sound like Ronnie J. Dio and while yes the Dio Era Rainbow is Epic in its own style, Rainbow changed and this album shows that Rainbow still rocked...okay its 80's American Rock now, not Classic English Hard Blues Rock but aside from that Its awesome the songs work brilliantly with Blackmore's Riff and JLT Vocals, SBTE is the JLT Era album to buy (imho) and this is the last Brilliant Rainbow album until 1995's Stranger In Us All

Of course their not ment to sound the same, if each Singer sounded the same it'd be boring as hell and the Musical style needs to change to accomdate the new Singer and that's all Rainbow Did!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of songs from Rainbow. 13 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although I really love the era of Ronnie James Dio with Rainbow, this album is pretty good with Joe Lynn Turner as vocalist. He has a very good voice and reminds me at times of Lou Gramm of Foreigner. Every track is excellent - not one lemon among the nine songs. I can certainly recommend it highly for anyone who appreciates good quality rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ouch 23 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rainbow - great band - even better with the late great Ronnie Dio. Still, the Joe Lynn Turner fronted band also had their moments. This cd sits between their best Difficult and poorest Bent - still has some great tunes Power being the best followed by Death Alley Driver. Would be good if Ritchie got this band back together for one last hurrah!
