vastly underrated Sabbath masterpiece,
This review is from: Dehumanizer (Audio CD)
To me, this is one of the best Dio era albums.Yes, it has been slated by many sabbath fans for various reasons but the quality of the music speaks for itself.
We all know that during the recording of this albums all wasn't well between Ronnie and cozy.This caused alot of friction within the band but hey presto, cozy breaks his pelvis and Vinny appice is brought in and then the chemistry of mark II or III? kicks in.
every song is heavy (even by Sabbath standards!) with some of Dio's best vocals ever . This isn't Heaven&Hell style suff more of a ninety's take on thst era.
I think the songs really hold up even 12 years down the line. Tony's guitar sound on this album is really happening and we certainly haven't heard him sound as angry for along time! please buy this album!!

I agree. To my taste most of the songs are great and at the same time quite different from everything they did before (and have done after). Many people complain about the mixing and the sound, but its dirty, muddy quality is the one the band chose and it fits the music perfectly, giving the whole album a unique sonic feel. I didn't know about the Cozy Powell story, thanks for sharing that information. Hope you keep on enjoying this music almost ten years after your review. Cheers.
