2 stars Dio left the band...

Even in very classic line -up: Ritchie Blackmore - guitars // Roger Glover - bass// Don Airey - keyboards// Cozy Powell - drums (classic in sense of Deep-Purple/Whitesnake/Rainbow circle of musicians), music is just a sell-out. Forget complex arrangements, forget dreamy mystery of Dio years. Just be ready for US-market oriented AOR.

Yes, they have more than enough energy there. And new singer Graham Bonnet with strong voice and loud screams ( listening to Bonnet I every time just remember Tom Jones). And they recorded the hit "Since You Been Gone" ( so, what could be worst?).

You will find there on that album just few remained melodic traces from old Rainbow and quite professional pop-rock. Nothing more.
