Cripes I LOVE this cd!! Worked in a record store at the time and I think we maybe sold 2 copies. What a travesty. Rowan Robertson is just incredible here and I think Ronnie does his best singing on here than on any Dio album. Would have been nice if Rowan could have stuck around to see where they could have gone. Underrated cd that deserves a second chance.

From: Logan-Five Date: May 14, 2002 at 14:00
I agree. This was a good album. Still some of the songs are a bit slow for my tastes. But Rowen was a fabulous guitarist. Too bad Dio didn't keep him long and he went nowhere after that, except to tour with Jon Crosby with VAST. This was the best Dio album between, Dream Evil and Killing the Dragon though.

From: RichieRocker Date: May 31, 2002 at 21:08
Rowan was a guitar prodigy, to play the way he did on this album was collossal, I wish I could play guitar like that. I think they were some strong points in the album.... but overall some things were lacking, like slow songs and foolish consistency.

From: ArrivingLuces Date: November 6, 2002 at 12:02
What happened with Rowan?? What's his up to today?

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 13, 2002 at 4:35
Bajón bastante acusado en este disco,parece como sin ideas,los temas mas rápidos son bastante del montón y los lentos son insulsos y pastosos.MEDIOCRE.

From: Blue Tequila Date: November 13, 2002 at 8:16
Rowan Robertson is now in a band called AM Radio which I would classify as college/alternative pop music. I listened to a couple of their songs and it's pretty boring stuff. I figured Rowan would be a guy who would have kept rocking after Dio but I guess you gotta pay the bills. Lock Up The Wolves was too slow, but it certainly showed Rowan's talent and it would have been nice to hear what he would have done on a follow-up album.

From: Gar Date: February 22, 2003 at 14:42
Around the mid 90's Rowan was supposed to be forming a band with Robert Mason(LYNCH MOB). I don't think anything ever came of it though. LOCK UP THE WOLVES is a prety good album. The complete lineup change was a little jarring at the time, but they managed to keep the classic Dio sound. This one is a step down from the first 4 Dio albums, but its still a good listen.

this is a good cd but not great.

From: tim Date: December 16, 2003 at 11:04
Rowan did not work with "Robert Mason", you have the wrong Lynch Mob singer. He worked with the mighty "Oni Logan" in the band "Violets Demise" who has their album shelved by Atlantic in approx 1993. The CD was finally released under the name "Logan/Robertson Revisited" and it is the best album OF ALL TIME!!! Get it at www.onilogan.com

From: Gar Date: December 16, 2003 at 19:49
Ooops! You're right. I was thinking of the wrong Lynch Mob singer. My bad.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 26, 2004 at 2:03
Now for certain, Dio has run out of ideas. All the tracks except for "Wild One" show the band going through the motions. You can tell that Dio bringing in a whole new backing band probably caused the songwriting to suffer in the process. This album scarred me away from his next couple of albums. 5/10

From: Metal T Date: June 26, 2004 at 10:39
It pains me to say this, but i couldn't stand this one. Slow moving and mediocre. Never cared for Rowan'on guitar. Theres a reason RJD rarely plays any of Wolves' material live' . ---

Grande album! Al tempo la critica lo trattň in maniera ingiusta: una grandissima formazione al servizio di mitiche canzoni come "Wild One", "Born On The Sun", la title Track e sopratutto "Why Are They Watching Me", ovvero la canzone piů graffiante mai composta dal mio idolo.

This one was ok, but hard to follow up that last one. Still, Dio's throat never dies.

From: Geoff Date: March 4, 2005 at 17:14
I did own this disc once. I thought it was musically very good, but I have never been and will never be a fan of Dio. I'm guessing he's quite good at what he does judging by his reputation, but I personally never liked his voice or the straight forward (and to me, boring) hard rock approach. Nothing stood out for me so I sold this.

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 23, 2006 at 5:52
I recently bought a CD copy of this one after having a cassette for many years (which I hardly ever played). This short-lived Dio lineup delivered a decent but unspectacular disc that has a couple of bright moments ("Hey Angel" is awesome) but overall doesn't really blow anyone's doors off. A similar problem occurred with 2004's MASTER OF THE MOON... again, an OK album but nothing to scream about. Then again, even mediocre Dio is better than no Dio.

From: onemorecast Date: February 14, 2007 at 12:47
I've only heard the title track and didn't like it very well. From the above comments I don't think I would like the rest of the tracks very well either.

From: Madd Mortigan Date: September 25, 2009 at 9:26
I really could't get into this cd at all. I still own it but only because it is part of the collection. Nothing really ROCKS on this cd IMO.

From: pie75 Date: July 13, 2010 at 4:21
this album i really love rowan's playing is something else his guitar was very loud and in your face the way i like it and ronnie's voice well it's ronnie no more needs to be said love born on the sun my absoloute favourite and hey angel,night music,the title track and my eyes are all great songs underrated sadly deserves much more

From: Buitre Date: February 13, 2011 at 6:46
First I couldn't stand it, if somebody asked me in the 90's about this one I would have said: No, I don't really like, today I have a different opinion about it. Maybe back then we idealized, Holy diver, The Last in line, Dream evil, Sacred Heart...

From: blackkblade5 Date: May 31, 2014 at 16:37
another underrated cd by the GOD,great songs,fine guitar playing,good production,heavy and polished,what's not to like people ...come one,better than this just the amazing strange highways album
