If you have a day with nothing to do and you own all or nearly all of Dio's albums I recomend that you listen to them all back to back in order and you will hear how his sound has changed and progressed since Holy Diver.
The album itself is yet more proof that Ronnie refuses to be tied down to one style of music. I am fed up of hearing people say "I'm Dio's biggest fan but every album after Last in Line is crap." If they were truely Dio fans then they would recognise the greatness of albums such as Dream Evil, Strange Highways and my personal favourite Lock up the Wolves.
Angry Machines is a heavier album even than Strange Highways and it does not exactly have what people would consider 'structured' songs. The songs convay the exact feeling of the album, its angry, careless attitude is brought out perfectly in songs like Stay Out of My Mind. The album thunders along becoming steadily angrier until it seems that Dio has exausted all his rage and ends the album with the beautiful track This is Your Life. This consists only of a piano and Ronnie singing some of the most powerful lyrics I have ever heard. this is the best song of the album along with Hunter of the Heart.
If you're one of those 'so-called' Dio fans who hate everything that doesn't start with 'Holy' and end with 'Diver' then it's pointless you even buying it.Read more ›
