|Uno de los mejores discos de Rainbow. Mr. Blackmore se cargó Elf para hacerse con los servicios de Ronnie James Dio, dejando al guitarrista de dicho grupo sólo, para en el próximo trabajo de Rainbow quedarse únicamente con Dio. Una de mis favoritas es "The temple of the king". Espero ver pronto aquí comentarios elogiosos sobre este disco. 10

|Pretty good debut. Doesn't really stand the test of time like some of their other albums, but there's good stuff to be had on this. "Man on the Silver Mountain" still gets radio play today.

|Its way ahead of later releases. Along with Risin, Long Live R'N'R and On Stage, they made some of the best releases ever. Their later efforts like Straight Between The Eyes, Bent Out Of Shape are totally crap, and has the little 'faggot' sounding singer Joe Lynn Turner singing. Gar, go for the early stuff, thats when they had their 'peak'.

|Good debut, but I think couple of Joe Lynn Turners 80´s Rainbows beats this one up (not included Man On The Silver Mountain of course).

|I love MAN ON THE SILVER MOUNTAIN, but in my opinion DIO's live version of this song is much better. Faster, louder, more cool. I still like the version that is in this album too.

|I love Rainbow even they are not from my time.I was born a little bit later, but my brother made me love them. I still do, I know every single song they've ever made by heart.My favourite one is 'Can't let you go'. 'Rainbow' are the music ears want to hear.

|Rainbow es una de las bandas mas grandes que ha existido nunca y too ellos gracias a la genialidad de Ritchie y a su buen criterio para reclutar estrella. Un debut de 10.

|While the debut contains their signature song "Man On The Silver Mountain", this is a pretty dissapointing album. This albums moves along more slow and bluesy compared to the following records. 6/10

|Been a Blackmore fan since Machine Head.Didn't really care much for this one.Aside from a few good songs, there's not much life here. The band, which were Dio's fomer band, Elf, really didn't seem to click with Blackmore, plus I hate the mix. It's dead, no life in it at all. Maybe would have been much better with a good mix. Compared to the next four that would follow this one, Rainbow came out of the gate slow, but they pick up steam after this one.This is not the only Rainbow you'd want to own

|Definitely a must have, even if you've never heard of Rainbow. The musicianship is unparalleled. My rating: 10/10.

|Dio and Blackmore have a magic that should have lasted longer. This was the start of some amazing albums.
