5.0 out of 5 stars Dio at his best, 10 April 2013
This is probably his greatest work for me. The keyboards are there but not over the mix and the riff work is legendary.

One night in the city is amazing , Evil Eyes is fantastic, The Last in Line sublime, and Egypt the chains are on is a masterpiece.

Not one bad song on the album. Buy it or your life will never be fulfilled.

All I can say about this man is that he could do no wrong during this time. I have a couple of his later albums to collect but I loved him in the eighties and this is why.

Vocals to die for, and riffs that are both heavy and melodic. His shows were awesome too. I saw him in the late eighties and he was magnificent.

If you have not got this album or have not heard of Dio. Don't waste any more time. The man was a genious .

Stand out tracks for me are Warriors of the road, followed by Stand up and Shout both very reminiscent of the heyday of Saxon and briliiant songs. Guardians of the Tomb has a good riff, Standing in a Queue is a typical tongue in cheek saxon song with a great riff and should be… Read more
