Without a doubt, Dio's strongest album. Craig Goldy does probably the best work of his career. The songs are both heavy & melodic.

From: GIORGOS Date: March 8, 2002 at 11:43
...we're naked in the rain... Dio kicks asses.

From: Metalhead Date: March 30, 2002 at 10:04
I absolutely agree with ctmetal, this is DIO's strongest album. Even without Vivian Campbell, the band still rocks! But I believe that he's a better player than Craig Goldy.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 22, 2002 at 12:10
I like the album cover, and the guitar work is really good and speedy, but I wasnt a huge fan of the album.

From: Baris Date: September 8, 2002 at 6:19
In the days of its release, I had quite impressed by the cover and sound of this record. Years after, it doesn't come so much interesting. But to be honest it is already a classic. "Dream Evil", "All The Fools Sailed Away" and "Overlove" are my favourites. (guitar intro of "Overlove" really rocks!). I agree that Dio's best album. The drummer is very good. A chance to have a nostalgy of those "Metal Top" days.

El disco que marca el final de su primera etapa,mismo estilo,y buenos temas en general.BUEN DISCO.

From: John Date: August 4, 2003 at 13:25
I hated this album when it came out. Goes to show how dumb I was in 1987. This is the sh!t. Too bad he never touches any of this stuff live anymore.

From: Nortum Date: September 5, 2003 at 19:20
Este disco completa junto con Holy Diver y The Last In Line el mejor material que Dio ha hecho como solista. SUPER BUENO!!

From: pablo Date: September 15, 2003 at 9:28
Buen disco pero a mi modo de ver la producción adolece un tanto de la calidad de trabajos anteriores ,Ronnie James Dio canta como siempre ..un fuera de serie

From: keebler Date: October 8, 2003 at 0:02
i love this cd i think i play this one the most.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 26, 2004 at 2:00
Good thing Craig Goldy was brought in. He gives Dio the shot in the arm he needed after the slightly dissapointing "Sacred Heart". "I Could Have Been A Dreamer" is the best pop song Dio has done since "Rainbow In The Dark" and "All The Fools Sailed Away" is his best epic track since "Holy Diver". 9/10

From: R.J.Daddo Date: September 19, 2004 at 4:16
Il mio disco preferito di tutti i tempi! Craig Goldie...ovvero la criniera più incredibile della storia del Rock!!!! "Night People", "Sunset Superman", "Naked In The Rain", ma sopratutto "All The Fools Sailed Away"...le più belle canzoni di tutti i tempi! DIO ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

From: rockfan Date: December 1, 2004 at 13:27
My last favorite DIO album. Not that they are bad, but is just that I think they couldn't make music as this one again (only in my opinion). The best tracks from this one are: Dream Evil, All The Fools Sailed Away, and my favorite slow song (and I'm not a slow song lover!) I Could Have Been A Dreamer.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 17:19
Vivian who? This was my introduction to Craig Goldy. See ya, Viv! Better axe wielding than its' predecessors, awesome work.

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 23, 2006 at 5:50
My favorite of Ronnie's '80s albums. Every track simply smokes. Craig Goldy is THE MAN! I still see the video for "All The Fools Sailed Away" on VH1 Classic every so often and smile when I see Playboy Playmate/porn star Teri Weigel as the water sprite or whatever the hell she's supposed to be...

From: juan carlos Date: February 22, 2006 at 23:04
Fue y es un tremendo disco, pero que no se vió reflejado en las ventas.. una lastima pues de ahi Ronnie se adentró en otro "estilo" si se podría llamar así.. Buenos solos de Goldie y la voz como siempre espléndida la de DIO.. todos los temas son cañeros, no hay ninguno malo, si te gusta el buen heavy rock o metal melodico, pues este tiene que ser tuyo si o si. 10/10

From: RonnieJamesDaddo Date: August 12, 2007 at 11:33
Semplicemente il più bel disco della storia dell'Heavy Rock. SHOCK!

From: pie75 Date: July 13, 2010 at 4:14
another good album from ronnie and craig goldie is a fine plater too love the title track and all the fools sailed away they're my favs

From: fdr Date: August 20, 2020 at 11:57
Another good album but the previous ones are all better. Ronnie's voice is still the strongest element but the songwriting is not on par with the first tho Dio albums. Sure there are still several good moments.
