5 stars Rainbow's Rising is the epitomy of traditional heavy metal. Dio's stylized, dramatic tone of voice is ideal for the genre. Cozy Powell's unambiguously thundering drumming style anchors each track perfectly. Guitar virtuoso Ritchie Blackmore's neo-classical riffs and extended melodic solos are class. Jimmy Bain's bass provides the consummate level of heaviness to proceedings. Tony Carey's keyboard playing beautifully enhances the fullness and symphony of the band's sound, and provides some great solos of his own. In particular Carey sets the mood with a solo at the start of the album. The tracks are full of the requisite epic melodies and themes reinforced by the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in the case of Stargazer where the album rises to its summit.
