From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 13, 2002 at 4:17
Para mi,el mejor disco de DIO,todos los temas con el sello inconfundible de Ronnie,buen guitarrista,buena bateria,la personalisima voz,y como tema me quedo con One Night In The City,aunque el resto no desentonan para nada.MUY BUENO.

god do i remember this one, i came home from school one day turned the tv on and what dropped my jaw to the floor, who else f'n DIO. i was simply blown away by his mesmerising voice and the overall talent of this band,which by the way included one of the most underated axeman ever vivian campbell. i still rock out with the title song. ONE WORD CLASSIC. UP THE IRONS MATE

From: visitor Date: August 20, 2003 at 14:13
Evil Eyes is one of the greatest hard rock songs ever written and the best song of Dio ever! You can´t get fed up with it even after listening to it for a 100 times! Fantastic guitar riffs and an outstanding chorus together with Ronnie´s vocals and lyrics - what can I say?? Superb in every way!!

From: BYRDMAN69 Date: October 2, 2003 at 13:30

From: keebler Date: October 7, 2003 at 23:57
another great cd awesome lyrics classic.

From: rocker Date: October 18, 2003 at 18:01
best album ever

From: Big Papa K Date: June 26, 2004 at 1:58
Slightly weaker follow up to "Holy Diver". "Mystery" was a poor attempt at following on the success of "Rainbow In The Dark" and "We Rock" is just cheesy. OK, you rock, you don't need to say it 200 times. The rest is all strong. 8/10

From: Papa Knows Date: September 8, 2004 at 13:52
I saw this guy before my eyes! I can tell ya he´s god!

From: Rick/Holland Date: November 1, 2004 at 6:07
Strong Album, but Holy Diver is much better!! Best tracks: One night in the city (KILLER SONG)& The last in line

From: NETO Date: November 18, 2004 at 6:26

From: rockfan Date: December 1, 2004 at 13:16
Just like the one they made before this one: Trully a CLASSIC! Dio never dissapointed.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 17:11
Masterpiece unmatched and unrivaled. As strong an album as the first.

From: gener8tr Date: February 3, 2005 at 16:16
Is every song on this disc a God-damn masterpiece or what? We Rock is one of the best tracks Dio ever wrote! Campbell is at his height here... He's good in Leppard, but he shreds on this one!

From: Joan Date: March 3, 2005 at 16:07
Este y el siguiente mis favoritos sin duda! One night in the city, the last in line...

From: juan carlos Date: May 28, 2006 at 23:08
Siendo un recontra fan de DIO pues decir que este tambien es un gran disco. Temazos como "we rock" "the last in line" "breathless" en fin todos. Todos temas clásicos que me marcaron mas la devoción hacia DIO. El anterior contiene temas mas hímnicos que este asi que en mi humilde opinión este esta un peñon abajo pero igual de bueno. Mi puntuación quiza sea exagerada pero DIO es lo máximo. Jamas saldrá una voz tan perfecta para el metal melódico con magia, mucha magia. MAGIC TO ALL!! 9.8/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 29, 2006 at 3:24
The best Dio album, personalmente el mejor de Dio desde la archiconocida We Rock pasando por I Speed at Night muy al estilo Judas Priest de esos años(que para mi sera siempre la mejor banda de Heavy Metal de todos los tiempos a la par con Maiden y ni hablar de Rob Halford el mejor cantante de Heavy que jamas habra dificil que algun otro cantante de Heavy supere el poder de su voz), One Night in the City, Eat Your Heart Out, Evil Eyes.. en fin un clasico absoluto para todo Metalero 9/10

R.I.P. Ronnie; thanks for all the great music and memories.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 16, 2010 at 17:31
God bless you Dio..you will always be remembered as the little giant of Heavy Metal!!!!..you'll be rocking along with Jimmy Hendrix,Janis Joplin,Kevin Dubrow and so on...R.I.P....today is a sad day...

From: pie75 Date: July 13, 2010 at 4:10
great album how's his voice in the title track just superb we rock indeed and we're still rocking with you ronnie not as good as holy diver but how could it be but beleive me it is great

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 15, 2012 at 21:24
Both Holy Diver and The Last In Line are metal classics, but, Dio being the unassailable figure that he is (even before he died), almost nobody has eer pointed out how this release is an obvious attempt to recreate the first album. First a fast-paced rocker with a populist message. Then the epic title track with those "mystical" lyrics. "Mystery" is a blatant rehash of "Rainbow In The Dark,"and the album winds up with "Egypt," which is very similar to "Shame On The Night."

From: the rocker Date: November 16, 2012 at 7:27
Alot of bands try to recreate or continue with what worked, so I'm very happy that RJD did what he did!!!
