Superb follow up to H&H. I saw this tour at Hammersmith-they slayed!! this is another fantastic set of songs Voodoo, Mob Rules, Falling, Turn up the night all awesome. The only track that I don't like is country girl which, after allthis time sounds a little crappy (but still better than alot of crap). Everyone will own this and rightly so.

I'd have to agree with Rockhead except I even like Country Girl... I thought this release was also slightly heavier than H&H. Voodoo...damn what a killer riff...

From: Blue Tequila Date: May 24, 2004 at 22:01
I agree with the above comments with my favorites here being Slipping Away (love the solos), Turn Up the Night and Country Girl. Another great album cover also. If you look closely, supposedly the words "Kill Ozzy" are written on the bottom center in red.

Voodoo and Mobrules riffs are so unbelivable!! Great sound, great vibe and Dio really brings his best with htis release!

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 17:01
Excellent follow up to "Heaven And Hell", but not as strong. Once again the two best songs are the title track and opener "Turn Up The Night". 9/10

Otro gran disco,sin dudas,al que le falta la originalidad de su predecesor,lo que le quita cierto mèrito,pero de todas maneras Turn Up the night, Vodoo,Falling..The Sign...y Over and over,no son menos que gemas para la discografia de la banda.El principo del fin de la que a mi juicio, fue la mejor etapa de una banda ùnica en su genero.Y si bien màs tarde hubo grandes discos,lo logrado en estor casi tres años,fue irrepetible para Sabbath y el metal en general.9/10 carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

My favorite BS album of all time. Dio is my favorite Sabbath vocalist and this album still gets played quite frequently and never gets old. My fave Falling off the edge of the world. Not one bad song in my opion.

From: Metal T Date: April 28, 2005 at 9:58
Great effort from RJD ! Anyone who has ever seen or heard Dio and his band play "Mob Rules" live or any other BS tunes,will know the incredible new life that are breathed into those songs.RJD kills on just about everything he sings on .

From: ED Date: May 2, 2005 at 15:25
Well, I went to the show when DIO came to Puerto Rico. And let me tell you, they played "The Sign Of The Southern Cross", a song from this album, and it was awesome!!!!

From: juan carlos Date: February 22, 2007 at 18:24
Otro Clásico de clásicos, nada que ver, este es igual de genial que su antecesor. TODAS son escenciales y el tema que pinta el album es "Falling Off The Edge Of The World"!. La primera vez que lo escuché fué allá a mediados de los 80s en vinilo, que decir, me quedé patidifuso. INDISPENSABLE.

RIP Ronnie James Dio. You will be missed by many.

From: Old Rocker Date: May 25, 2012 at 14:14
A very good follow up to Heaven And Hell, not as good in my opinion but still containing some great tracks, Over And Over is one of my favourites as is The Sign Of The Southern Cross. Had tickets to see this tour but there was severe snow which hindered our journey, so I didn`t get to see this line up until the Dehumanizer tour.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 19, 2016 at 13:50
A good album with a song named "The Mob Rules" that is simply a milestone ...some other fine cuts are 1,2 & 8...Dio you are badly missed 83/100
