Review Summary: Fantastic album, a great follow up to his debut album, Holy Diver, full of more mysterious lyrics and ear catching tunes. Give it a listen.

This album is possibly the second best Dio album, after Holy Diver, plainly just because of the intensity of the vocals and the sheer awesomeness of the riffs. The killers on the album such as "We Rock", "Last in Line", "Egypt (The Chains are On)", next to the underrated, forgotten songs, like "Breathless", "Eat Your Heart Out" and "I Speed at Night", which are also very good, although I Speed at Night could be a little more interesting lyrics-wise. One of the gems of the album is "One Night in the City", with it's epic bridge, and fantastic guitar work by Vivian Campbell. This song has been unreasonably forgotten among Dio fans.

The song "We Rock", has fantastic drumming by Vinny Appice, that keeps me hooked, although I do find the track a little overrated. The title track is a killer, everybody knows it, "If we're evil or divine we're the last in Line". The song "Breathless has a gret guitar solo that really makes this song stand out among Dio fans. The only track on the album that I find even a little bit bad is "I Speed at Night", and if you've listened to this, you'll know where I'm coming from. The gem of the album, which is very underrated is "Mystery". The fans only really focus on the belters like Last in Line or We Rock, and just forget about the others.

Anyway I would rate this album a 9/10, which to me, means that is a banger album, but there is a song on there that requires improvement, in this case, "I Speed At Night". Thanks for reading. Rock On RJD!
