4.0 out of 5 stars The man in black can still rock... 23 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
It is a shame if Rainbow fans overlook this gem that was released in 1995. It was the last album Ritchie Blackmore made under the Rainbow moniker before forming Blackmores Night and opting for another musical style altogether. The lead singer Dougie White has a fine voice easily matching his predecessors and Blackmores guitar is excellent throughout. Wolf to the moon and Cold hearted woman are true Rainbow rock tracks, Hunting humans follows and is a haunting track that was released as a single. Stand and fight is the only track that I would call mediocre due to the excellence of the rest of the album. I strongly urge all fans of Blackmore to discover this album and listen without prejudice. Having followed the man for the last thirty odd years I think I have enough 'experience' behind me to make such a statement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated album 22 April 2013
By HM
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this album, I really liked it. It was unfortunate that "Emotional Crime" was left off from the UK release. The feel of the song sounds like Free and is very blues oriented. The harmonies at the end are great. It is a very good song and would have enhanced the album even further.

Nonetheless the existing album songs "Ariel" and "Black Masquerade" are tremendous and the latter has a magnificent middle section. They really propel the album and it is comparable to any of the earlier work of Rainbow.

Blackmore is an incredible player and his work now with Blackmore's Night contains astounding musicianship.

5.0 out of 5 stars unknown,unloved,unappreciated.. but its a belter 10 Jun 2010
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
12 years after 'Bent Out of Shape' Blackmore revived Rainbow with a cast of 'nobodys'? certainly i'd never heard of any of them but what a band, especially singer Doogie White,easily the best vocalist after Dio that the bands had.I have no hesitation in stating that this is the best Rainbow album since the heady days of 'Rising' and 'Long Live Rock N Roll',yes its that good.

The album bursts into life from the moment 'Wolf To The Moon' charges from the speakers quickly followed by the thundering 'Cold Hearted Woman',2 tracks which easily could have been from the Dio era,up next the fantastic 'Hunting Humans' another which could easily have come from Dio's fantasy lyric book,'Stand and Fight' drags us back to the best of the J L Turner days before 'Ariel' swaggers out of the speakers with its Zeppelin riff and a first glimpse at the vocal prowess of Candice Night,a magnificent piece of music which is a definite highpoint,'Too Late For Tears' (a dig at Gillan and Purple? perhaps)whisks you back to the 'Down to Earth' days and you realise that in Doogie White Blackmore had unearthed a vocalist that could convincingly cover all era's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rainbow Rise Again 7 July 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's difficult to believe this album was not critically acclaimed, I could only give it 5 stars but it's worth 10.

I would suggest that the reviewer named A Customer treats him/herself to a new sound system

In my opinion it's the best Rainbow album since Rising.. Doogie White is like a cross between Graham Bonnet and Joe Lynn Turner..another example of Ritchie's ability to spot great talent.

This is just a brilliant rock album..what are you waiting for?
Order it now, you won't be disappointed.

Stranger in Us All is a 1995 album by the reformed Rainbow. Ritchie Blackmore (who was the only constant member of Rainbow) put together a new version of Rainbow with little-known musicians in 1994. It was originally intended to be his solo album, but due to the label BMG pressures, the record was billed as Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. This line-up only released the one album before Blackmore decided to pursue different musical styles and formed Blackmore's Night with his companion Candice Night. As such, this album marks Blackmore's final hard rock recordings (to date). Released in the post-grunge mid '90s, Stranger in Us All achieved a modest success, particularly in Europe. Much of the album featured in the live concert sets. Drummer John O'Reilly was replaced for the tour, by the returning Chuck Burgi. John Miceli joined the band for the US shows, from February to May 1997, plus one in Denmark. The album takes its name from a line in the song "Black Masquerade".

The line-up for this album consisted of Ritchie Blackmore on guitars (obviously), Doogie White on vocals, John O'Reilly on drums, Greg Smith on bass guitar and Paul Morris on keyboards, with Mitch Weiss on harmonica and Candice Night providing backing vocals. Although Stranger in Us All is a good album in its own way (in my opinion), I still prefer the albums Rainbow did when Ronnie James Dio was the vocalist for the band as during the Dio era they wrote and recorded songs that had what I consider a more interesting subject, mostly dungeons and dragons.
