Dehumanizer shows Ronnie James Dio return on vocals for the first time in eleven years.

I gotta say it, I'm really happy to be hearing Dio again. While I think that Ozzy is the better lyricist, I just love Dio's performance on all of his releases to be far superior to Ozzy's. And while I think this is the weakest written Dio record by far, his ... read more
