I remember gettin this album in 86 when I was 9 and I loved it it rocked hungry for heaven,rock n roll children were badass songs. unfortunately my dad threw it out...a-hole!

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 13, 2002 at 4:24
Quizas la única variedad,es que mete teclados en algunos temas,como por ejemplo en el mejor tema Hungry For Heaven,por lo demás el tipico disco de DIO.BUEN DISCO.

From: aTomiK Date: December 19, 2002 at 8:47
i was 11 years when i bought this(1985) and have been a metal listener since. still great stuff and heavy metal music just doesn´t get old. Hail from Finland!

From: WidoMakr Date: February 7, 2003 at 2:09
Proof that being 4 foot nothing doesnt mean u cant sing like a GOD....So many great Dio tunes/albums...BUT for those new to Dio...listen to Rock n Roll Children to get hooked... THIS is another of those special crank to 11+ wake the neighbors worry about the cops tommorrow tunes...Quote the WidoMakr....never more

From: Roger Date: June 11, 2003 at 10:38
The cover lists 9 tracks, but my (original) CD has 11, any idea what the other two are called ?

From: John Date: August 4, 2003 at 13:23
I still remember Lowden Swain running to 'Hungry For Heaven' in Vision Quest. Not Ronnie's finest album, but good enough.

From: keebler Date: October 8, 2003 at 0:00
i did'nt like this one as much as the first two but it's still good.

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 2, 2004 at 16:15
This was the first Dio album I owned and I still have my original vinyl copy! The title track is overlooked but I think it's one of RJD's finest compositions...

From: Lynchomaniac Date: June 6, 2004 at 11:11
A sadly overlooked and underrated album, as it belongs up there among Holy Diver and Killing the dragon

From: Big Papa K Date: June 26, 2004 at 1:59
I don't like the sound on this album. Sounds too flat compared to the other albums. And "King Of Rock N Roll" is almost as bad of a way to start off an album as "We Rock". This time "Hungry For Heaven" is the pop song and it is a pretty good one. Dio is starting to run out of ideas on here. 7/10

From: rockfan Date: December 1, 2004 at 13:19
All DIO's 80's albums are classics. But this one is my favorite. I could never get bored listening to songs as: Rock n' Roll Children, Sacred Heart, or Hungry For Heaven

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 17:14
Cracked my skull open from the right side, sucked everything out and reinserted innards before the albim was done. Over the top solidity, perfect musicianship. Buy this and another copy for every man, woman and child on this planet!

From: z4roxx Date: February 25, 2005 at 18:32
This is my Dio favourite cd.A great piece of melodic heavy metal!9/10!

From: Joan Date: March 3, 2005 at 16:05
A mi es el que mas me gusta de Dio, no solo por la genial Hungry for Heaven (vaya solazo de Campbell), tambien Rok n' roll children, another lie, just another day y sobretodo Shoot shoot son temazos.

From: KISS Date: June 11, 2005 at 3:42
A very keyboard orientated for a metal album. Songs like rock and roll children,another lie and hungry for heaven sounds like a heavy pop rock songs that are more simlar to rainbow in the dark than holy diver or stand up and shout. Most of the songs sounds like a cross between raibow and black sabbath..the mystical lyrics of sabbath and keyboard melodies of rainbow. Not as good as their first 2 album but a good effert nonetheless!

From: jan_vexel Date: December 29, 2006 at 19:03
every one of the first 4 studio albums has that something i wanna hear again and again and again.....+++++ 10/10

From: juan carlos Date: July 28, 2007 at 11:39
Vaya que se me paso no comentar en un clásico album del Maestro Dio. El "Holy Diver" para mí es su rotunda obra maestro al igual que el "Dream Evil" pero éste no está muy lejos. Tremendos temazos como "Rock 'n' Roll Children" Dámela siempre! "Sacred Heart" bien pesado y riffero como me gusta "Hungry For Heaven" de los mas melódico que hizo DIO hasta esa fecha, "Another Lie" "Shoot Shoot".. Clásico Rotundo, ni lo dudes. 9.5/10

From: underworld king Date: August 1, 2013 at 22:52
Another excellent album from DIO. They started to get a little more radio friendly with this release but it doesn't take away from the greatness of this band. This album has grown in my opinion over the years and is probably the most played Dio album for me for about 5 years now.
