Rating: 5 This is rated higher than Technical Ecstasy? I hate this album, really.

Rating: 5 This album for me gets worse and worse with every song. The title track is actually very decent, as is 'Johnny Blade' and 'A hard road', but as soon as 'Shock wave' starts playing you know that the band were lacking considerably in the originality department. This isn't quite their worst album, but it surely isn't an album to remember them by either.

  Horribly album, IMO all band went nuts from drugs, and Ozzy most, let metlheads forgive me, but maybe it was better that Ozzy was fired? if all contunue like this, then I don t know, Dio, Gillan and Martin brung new ideas and sound into band and it 's better, I will analaize those albums in next fiev days , but this, well some harmonicas and blusy touches yes, but rest is cheesy and so boring
