Dumb mistake. I meant Gates of Babylon. Both have that eastern vibe.That's on Rising.
@Mosh You must mean the song Killing the Dragon. This DVD contains nothing else of the album.I have a soft spot for Killing the Dragon just because I have the live DVD from that tour, which was really my introduction to anything Dio did outside of the Holy Diver album. I highly recommend it.
For me, it's not even close. Holy Diver by a mile. Knick is right, LiL has some plodding moments, whereas Holy Diver smokes throughout.On the discussion of Holy Diver VS. Last in Line:
I am also perhaps in the minority because I LOVE Mob Rules. The title track is face-melting (the demo used on the Heavy Metal motion picture soundtrack is even better). RJD's vocal performance on "Sign of the Southern Cross" is truly epic. And Side 2 is criminally underrated: "Country Girl" and "Falling Off the Edge of the World" are just awesome. ("Country Girl" is a top-5 Iommi riff for me.) Mob Rules sits aside H&H among my favorite metal albums ever.
And before Knick launched this thread I was thinking we were due for a Dio survivor.
Should I go for it?
