5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5/5, 12 Oct 2013
Following the exquisite Nightlife and Fighting deluxe remasters, we now have Renegade (sadly only one disc) and the double disc Thunder and Lightning deluxe remasters, and boy are they done right. These sound great! The bass received a bit of a boost, but in no way is it overdone or bloated. I feel as if it really adds power to the album, especially on Cold Sweat. Everything now is clearer, as you can hear more of what goes on. You know the spoken word in The Holy War which you could never really decipher do to it morphing with the music? It's now quite clear in the right channel, and after listening to this album hundreds of times, it gave me chills! If you only own one copy of this album… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic edition, 1 April 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars the Misfits are back!, 31 Mar 2012
or what's left of 'em. The Devil's Rain is the first studio album by the Misfits since 2003's 50's and 60's rockabilly covers album Project 1950. The Devil's Rain and Project 1950 both share one common characteristic. Jerry Only is the sole remaining original Misfit, and it's also the reason I initially passed on this album, but I'm glad I came back and revisited it.
This is not the Misfits of old, and by Misfits of old, I'm referring to the Danzig era. It's somewhat reminiscent to the American Psycho and Famous Monsters albums with less distortion. It's a mish mash of punk and metal, and they pull it off quite well. While no Danzig or Graves, Jerry Only holds his own. No over the top… Read more
