5 CLASSIC METAL IS ONE OF THE BEST TYPES OF METAL!!!!!!brucedickinson | 10/04/2008 | See all brucedickinson's reviews (165)Top 100 Music Reviewer I've had this for few days and i must say it's an awesome classic metal album. At first when i heard i thought it sounded a bit too much like deep purple with dio as vocalist but i still liked it. After a couple of listens i realised it's not it's a bit heavier then Deep purple. This being the first band Ronnie James Dio was in & Ritchie Blackmore(from Deep Purple) makes this an awesome album. On to the tracks all tracks are great my favourites would probably Man On The Silver Mountain, Black Sheep Of The Family (because i'm the black sheep of my family), Catch The Rainbow(Sounds alot like Iron Maiden's Strange world I know this was like 5 years before maiden but just like to point it out), The Temple Of The King, Snake Chamber & Sixteenth Century Greensleeves. A great and a great buy if you want to get into rainbow and a great bargain €6.99. HAIL RONNIE JAMES DIO!!!!!!!!
