4.0 out of 5 stars
5 stars for the music 3 stars for the transfer, March 26 2004
This review is from: Elf Albums (Audio CD)
These two albums are definitely among Dio's best work,along with rainbow and a couple of the Sabbath recordings.Both are better than the first Elf album..It has more diverse styles of music than any of the other bands mentioned.Boogie shuffles to blues-rock to soothing spacey ballads to swaggering beats.The problem with this release is that there is a glitch at the beginning of Liberty Road.This is an official release so the only excuse for this is if something damaged the original master since the original release.If so ,I think it should be easy enough to fix by lifting that second or two of music from later in the song as it is repeated ,or from a copy of the vinyl.I have the original and it doesn't have that glitch.Any way it's pretty much inexcusable for an official release.Although personally, out of all of the songs from the Tryin'to Burn the Sun album ,liberty road isn't particularly a stand out so I'll only deduct one star over all.
