The best album by the greatest heavy metal vocalist DIO!

Top tier well balanced metal. Excellent musicianship, melody, and powerful vocals with 0 filler.

The production on this album is superb; crystal clear. The bass really gets to shine and Vinny's drums sound so crisp on this record. Vivian's riffing slays and his leads compliment all the songs very well.

Caught In The Middle and Don't Talk To Strangers are two of the best mid pace songs off this album. The latter is a Dio classic which starts off mellow with guitar and vocals but it's just building up to something better. The drums and bass soon follow, Dio belts it out, and a thundering riff follows. The leads on this song are awesome.

Invisible is one of the underrated tracks on the record with a great melodic intro. Good harmonizing, vocals, and catchy chorus.

Rainbow in the Dark is no doubt Dio's most well known track thanks to the catchy keyboard melody. The best thing about this song is the guitar solo.

Album closes out with the darker track Shame On The Night. Very good vocals, thumping bass, and drum work by Vinny. A great way to finish one of the best metal albums.
