DIO Evil Or Divine BR>(Eagle Vision/Spitfire EREDV317) (2003)
Legendary vocalist gets better with age...

Live DVD recorded on December 13th 2002 in New York’s Roseland Ballroom and boy does it ROCK! Ronnie Dio is joined by long-time cohort Jimmy Bain (bass), ex-AC/DC/UFO drummer Simon Wright, Scott Warren on keyboards and guitarist Doug Aldrich (now in Whitesnake). You’ve got the Rainbow classics, ‘Man On A Silver Mountain’ segued with ‘Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll’, a touch of Sabbath in ‘Heaven And Hell’ and of course a stack of Dio classics including ‘Holy Diver’, ‘Stand Up And Shout’ and ‘The Last In Line’. But it’s not all nostalgia as new songs, ‘Killing The Dragon’ and the excellent ‘Push’, come across nice and loud. Stars of the show are Dio, who seems to be loving every minute of it and Aldrich, who switches with ease from metallic riffing to effortless soloing.

Bonus material include an informative and enjoyable interview with Dio, some rather corny backstage footage (meet the roadies, etc.) and the promo video for ‘Push’, which features a cameo from Tenacious D (who recorded their tongue-in-cheek tribute to Dio on there debut album released last year). There is also a photo gallery of assorted fans photos.

Well worth your money and a must for Dio fans, he gets better with age!

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
