In your friend and humble narrator's opinion This album will never be quite the accomplished article as say the formidable Mob Rules. And yet, the 1992 release Dehumanizer is an amazing record, the music here lies thick and very heavy. Think of the greatness that the Appice/Butler/Dio/Iommi line-up might of done had the egos remained under control back in 1982?
Dehumanizer and the much later The Devil You Know (under the guise of Heaven and Hell) gives us all a glimpse of that possibility. Explosive and Exciting...And downright delicious!
And one final word, Ronnie James Dio a fine gentleman who was never ashamed to use the term "Heavy Metal".
