- Holy Diver - Remastered
It has taken me a very long to get around to getting any Dio albums. Been into early Rainbow far a fair while and always though Ronnie James Dio's vocals were top notch – sacriliage maybe, but i would even say there are better than Ian Gillian. However for me, the star was always Ritchie Blackmore. Rainbow's main strength in the early days I thought was his thunderous riffs and "frilly" bits…
So i wasnt sure what to expect here…was scarred it would feel like a very poor mans Rainbow and Black Sabbath…I was wrong…
OK it hasnt got some of the sheer woah factor Blackmore brought…but there are some really great grooves on here…some good heavy riffing and Dio's vocals shine throughout…Yes it is all a bit silly…but boy is it good fun.
I would write a longer review…but i cannot be bothered

and you best comment in agreement
I notice claims around 7 or 8 months ago i was going to keep blogging have been distinctly not kept…So i decided to write a new entry…
now, just to prove no one cares i have decided i wont write a new entry until i have 25 comments to this entry….and whoever gets the 25th entry can have a special prize….which I cannot detail until later….
So whats new in life….
Last release to come out which i am credited on is the complete set of all the colour episodes of the Roger Moore years as The Saint….there is a documentary on there with a familiar name in the credits….Would love to say what working on now, but that is sadly not an option.
I always remember any good blog entry needed a rant…so for this entry i am going to have a mini rant about warm water….why is it that it just tastes NOWHERE near as good as really cold water? Is there a scientific reason? Someone must now….
oh and the funbus has sadly been cancelled..boo hisss
