4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Follow-Up with Dio, April 10, 2008
This review is from: Mob Rules (Audio CD)
This album is good but pales in comparison with 'Heaven and Hell.' Neither the music, lyrics, or recording quality is up to par with its predecessor.

It's still a good album with 'Turn Up the Night', 'Voodoo', and 'Mob Rules' probably being the best songs. Yeah, 'Sign of the Southern Cross' is ok but sounds like an inferior version of 'Heaven and Hell' and there you have Dio's silly magic lyrics starting to slip in. I like 'Falling off the Edge of the World' better. 'Country Girl', 'Slipping Away' are OK. Like 'Sign...' with 'Heaven and Hell', 'Over and Over' sounds like an inferior copy of 'Lonely is the Word' from Heaven and Hell.

Dio sounds great as always but this album is just not as good compared to 'Heaven and Hell.' Nevertheless, it's still one of Sabbath's best albums.

Sometimes groups have a hard time following up a really good album. Sounds like that's the case here. Good review.
