Genius!! A true metal classic that showcassed an excellent set of songs performed by superb muscians at a time everyone thought they would implode. Still sounds great to this day and still not a naff song in sight.

Fucking CLASSIC! I don't know if I think of it as a Black Sabbath release, it's almost more like a preview of Dio's solo career. Total departure from the Ozzy era material, more traditional songwriting with a lot of hooks. Bottom line: who cares, it FUCKING ROCKS! I still listen to this, in fact I think it's out in my car right now.

I still get a shiver down my spine every time I hear Iommi's solo in Neon Knights... Easily, one of my Top 10 favorite solos of all time...

From: Metal T Date: June 22, 2004 at 18:04
Great record !---Steel Prophet do a version of "Neon Knights" on the "Holy Dio" tribute that sounds freaking amazing. ----

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 16:49
This would have to be my favorite Black Sabbath album ever. Fresh off of a great run with Rainbow, Dio injects new life into the band. Songs like "Neon Knights" and "Children Of The Sea" are awesome, but does metal get any better than the title track? 10/10

From: Alejandro Date: July 30, 2004 at 11:16
Sin dudas EL disco de Black Sabbath. Y una de las tres placas màs importantes en la historia del gènero. No hay canciòn que no sea clàsico, amèn de que individalmente cada musico, estaba en el cènit de su carrera. Y si bien Mob Rules fue otra joya, està un paso atràs de esta obra maestra. Y un pàrrafo aparte para la sublime produciòn de Martin Birch, otro rsponsable de semejante disco. Die Young y Lonely is The World y Heaven and hell, los himnos aboslutos. 10/10 carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

DIO blows ozzy away. No comparison. Excellent album.

From: matt evans Date: December 29, 2004 at 17:23
dio is a fucking genius its about time for people to reconize ozzy's not the only one that was good in sabbath

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 1, 2005 at 16:05
Is it sacrilege to say that I like the Dio era Sabbath better than the Ozzy era? Cuz I listen to "Heaven & Hell," "Mob Rules," and even "Dehumanizer" more often than any of my Ozzy Sabbath CDs. Strange but true.

From: 92 Date: April 14, 2005 at 2:00
My 2nd favorite after Mob Rules. A classic album from start to finish. Not a bad song at all and a fresh start for Sabbath with a great new sound and direction.

From: Metal T Date: April 28, 2005 at 10:06
100% Class ! RJD saved this band .Tony and Geezer owe Ronnie big time ........

From: schenker fan Date: June 24, 2005 at 22:36
Bought the vinyl in 1980; I STILL have it--one of my treasures. Also on reguar CD & Japanese mini-lp cd. It was one of the first 5 cd's I bought when I started getting CD's. What does all this mean? IT RULES. GET IT! The First Four are STILL Sabbath's BEST, but this one ain't far behind!

From: tony Date: November 7, 2006 at 15:48
I love ya Ozzy but i gotta say in the history of metal where a group loses it's origional frontman for another,this has to be the best replacement for a lead vocalist ever,hands down.Dio rules supreme in the world of Metal and he helped produce one of if not the best Black Sabbath albums ever. Sorry Ozzy.

From: juan carlos Date: February 22, 2007 at 18:18
Ozzy para mí es el tercer mejor de los Sabbath, segundo Tony Martin y primero el MAESTRO: RONNIE JAMES DIO. Este es un clásico de clásicos ni que dudarlo. "DIE YOUNG" vaya tema, increíble y totalmente fuera de serie al igual que todo el disco. Esa atmósfera extraña y malévola daría paso a una chorrada de grupos con ese estilo. GENIAL Y CLASICO IMPRESCINDIBLE DE TODOS LOS TIEMPOS. Si no te gusta DIO pues que decir... 10/10

From: underworld king Date: May 18, 2010 at 21:56
On May 16th the world lost a great voice. RIP Ronnie James Dio.

From: pie75 Date: August 23, 2010 at 6:15
whist i'm on record on this site as saying if you don't like paranoid then you don't like heavy metal i just love sabbath period the ozzy era is special and where heavy metal started but lets be honest ronnie james dio is a better singer and sabbath were at their musical best when he was in the band this is the greatest sabbath album ever how can you not like neon knights,children of the sea,lady evil,die young,lomely is the word and as big papa k says does metal get any better then the title track? probably not not only is this my favourite sabbath album but it's my favourite dio album a master peice simple as that r.i.p ronnie james dio the metal world will miss you

From: Doug Date: February 2, 2011 at 15:18
My favorite Sabbath album!

From: Old Rocker Date: May 25, 2012 at 14:10
Brilliant return for Sabbath with the truly great Ronie James Dio on vocals, this still gets lots of plays on my stereo, Lonely Is The Word is still my favourite, Children Of The Sea, Heaven And Hell, Die Young and Neon Knights ate the classic tracks.

From: Doug Date: June 17, 2013 at 16:14
I'm listening to this now, what a great album! Want to get my hands on new album "13." Some of what I've heard so far sounds good.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 28, 2015 at 22:52
Classic by all means but for me was,being objective,just a decent Record,i mean "Die Young" is a killer song and my fave(put in the sack tracks 1,2 & 4 as well)but it could have been a more solid release in some aspects(a mater of tastes i guess)...80/100
