2 stars After the stunning albums with Dio on vocals, Rainbow did exactly what the album title suggested and delivered an album full of disappointing commercial FM-rock. Bryan Adams would be proud of the songs here.

Anyway, it's still lot better then the albums that followed it. First of all there was still Cozy Powell on drums. His commanding style makes this album rock hard and tight, even if the songs are substandard. Two exceptions: Lost in Hollywood is a pleasant rocker and with Eyes of the World there is at least one song showing a little bit more ambition then just doing faceless hardrock.

The ensuing albums would continue further downhill. They all have one or two decent songs but nothing that will add anything to the Blackmore tricks we've come to known on his great albums.
