It would be lovely if Dio's catalog was in the care of people who were concerned about how RJD's music *sounded* more than they cared about how much profit they can wring from it. The 'Decade of Dio' vinyl box set was a horribly pressed mess, and this pressing is another misfire. I'm assuming the only reason they chose Rainbo for these posthumous pressings is because they were cheapest. Too bad they put out garbage pressings.

To compound the problem here: you simply can't put nearly an hour of music like this out on a single disc and have it sound anything other than horrible!

In the unlikely event anyone from Dio's camp is actually reading this: *PLEASE* release this (and any of his other albums over 45 minutes long) on double vinyl, and have it manufactured by a company with a reputation for quality. I assure you that it really is possible to be a Dio fan and care about audio quality, and we will buy a quality product. Thanks.

Shame they missed to opportunity of releasing it as a double LP. 55 minutes of such loud and dymanic music was always gonna be too much for a single LP. The result is predictable: the LP is mastered too quiet which leads to more surface noise when you turn it up. Shame because it's one of the better sounding DIO albums.
The result is not awful but could be much better with a double LP treatment.
