4.0 out of 5 stars Black Sabbath lives June 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
1st of all like someone already said, how do you replace Ozzy Osbourne? Well luckily Dio is a legend, he's been around forever. I was never nuts about the Elf stuff, but I did like his Rainbow material. I thought this release was a breath of fresh air, the last sabbath release "never say die" was weak. It had 2 good songs maybe, never say die & johnny blade.
The 1st half of The Mob Rules is great, all fast past heavy songs, the next half imo is all filler material. Turn up the night, voodoo, sign of the southern cross, & E5150 are instant classics.
No one has mentioned the cover of this cd, look at the bloody cloth closely....it's a demoms face. Cool huh???? One last thing why are people saying E5150 is way out of character for sabbath?? It's not, Ever heard the song "Who are you"?? Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than "Heaven & Hell" Jan. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I know what they're going to say: "There's no way 'Mob Rules' is better than 'Heaven & Hell'". Let me explain.
Simply put, "Mob Rules" is a harder, more edgy effort than "Heaven & Hell". The album opens with a fast, churning rocker, "Turn up the Night". We then move into a more "typical" Sabbath sound with the bluesy "Voodoo". The third piece is one of the best on the album: "The Sign of the Southern Cross". It's an epic worthy of a Black Sabbath Greatest Hits album. It also shows Dio's voice as we'll never hear it again on any other effort - Soft, serene, soothing (only to be shattered by a strategically placed power chord to introduce the rest of the band). E5150 is, well, dumb - and the low point of the album. I'm not sure what Sabbath was toying with here, but I do know that "5150" is the American Police Code for the criminally insane. The title track is the hardest song on the album, and another one of my faves. Also a contribution to the soundtrack for 1981's "Heavy Metal: The Movie", "The Mob Rules" makes you want to really stand up and shout (no pun intended). I call the next two songs, "Country Girl" & "Slipping Away", twin songs for obvious reasons. Though many fans overlook these two, I really like the blues-metal, foot-stomping "Slipping Away". It comes complete with guitar rests to show off Vinny Appice's drumming, & an echo effect on Dio's vocals for some added attitude. This song also shows a glimpse of some chops from Geezer Butler & Tony Iommi. I don't think the album ends well with the last two cuts, "Falling Off the Edge of the World" & "Over and Over". These last two songs sound much like an afterthought, and as a result, they are rather forgettable.

5.0 out of 5 stars "22 Year Old Sabbath Masterpiece with Dio! Oct. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
Eventhough this album was released some 22 years ago, "Mob Rules" stands as one of Black Sabbath's best albums without the aid of Ozzy Osbourne. Ronnie James Dio does a great job on vocals, and presents a much more interesting vocal range than anything Ozzy put out in the 1970's. The tracks "Turn Up the Night", "The Sign of the Southern Cross", and "The Mob Rules" are the obvious hits, but who could forget "Country Girl", "Over & Over", & "Falling Off the Edge of the World."
These songs really rock, and illustrate the talents of Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, Vinny Appice, and Dio. "Heaven & Hell (1980)" released 2 years earlier was also good, but not great.
Many of it's songs were filler, but "Mob Rules" is a consistant and enjoyable album from beginning to end. Anyone who enjoys Black Sabbath, Dio, Rainbow, and early Ozzy, will love this CD for it's heaviness on such tunes as "Voodoo" or it's non-stop rockers like the title cut "The Mob Rules."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sign of Greatness Sept. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Destined to be overshadowed by it's predecessor, the immensely popular (and deservedly so) HEAVEN AND HELL, Dio's second effort with the band is actually one of the most underrated and under-appreciated album in Black Sabbath's canon. I would even try to argue that MOB RULES is just as good, if not a little bit better at times, than HEAVEN AND HELL.
The main credit to this album's success is that it maintains its brilliance all the way though... HEAVEN AND HELL is a great album, no doubt, but the album's best and most memorable songs are tagged onto the front of the album, with the last song on it being the worst on the album (still good, but not fantastic). Not so with MOB RULES... every song on this album is absolutely fantastic, with no slip in quality whatsoever.
"Turn up the Night" is what we've come to expect from Dio... an upbeat and fast-paced metal song with infectious harmonies and wailing vocals. "Voodoo" is a nice mid-paced rocker with some impressive riffs to its credit. "The Sign of the Southern Cross" is without a doubt the masterpiece of the album, and the best song Dio ever did (Sabbath and otherwise). An epic that clocks in at 7:49, it's an undeniable highpoint in the band's career... nothing that Sabbath did afterwards even comes close to matching it.
The band does some experimenting with "E5150," which I guess you could compare to VOLUME 4's "FX," SABOTAGE'S "Don't Start (Too Late)" or any other tinkerings the band did throughout its career. The title track is another instant classic, and when the band slows things down in the middle of the otherwise heavy "Country Girl," you can't help but be impressed.
