This album Dio's tenth and final studio album, definitely shows that Dio had ''it'' till his dying day , i'm sure hes climbing the stairway to heaven as we speak.
his style is obviously out dated but thats what makes it amazing, no music can compare to what the late 80s to 90s music gave to the world.
Master of the moon is definitely for thoes people who want to reminisce about old times, its one of those albums that should be embedded into every bikers ride...
Heavy riffs no short cuts, true music, clear lyrics yet complexed poetry!
songs you just cant help but headbang too, it makes short haired people wish they had long hair!
This Album Screams ''Hey I'm Still here and i'm not going anywhere!''
the guitaring is really great and dio's unique voice brings the poems to life and sets fire to the imagination.
he has his own style and yes he sticks to it and theres nothing wrong with that, but because of that a lot of his music sounds the same at times.. but as long as hes doing it his way then thats what counts because at the end of the day its his style and he could chose to try something different or stay with what hes got, after all if its not broken why fix it?
my 2 favorite songs from Master of the Moon is
Master of the Moon and Death By Love i just love the unique lyrics and play on words..and obviously the guitar,lead guitarist is Craig Goldy ,Jeff Pilson on bass,Simon Wright on drums, and Scott Warren on keyboards by the way.
If you like Classic rock or original Heavy Metal you should like this album,its not the best of the best but it deserves a place in your collection and thats definite.

Moving on from the eighties throwback 'Killing the Dragon,' Dio's (still-) latest release instead takes its inspiration from his nineties work, which means an emphasis on slow, heavy guitars, and a certain amount of tedium. This is better than the directionless 'Angry Machines,' but the slow doom style will doubtless put off many listeners, especially for starting out so well with the upbeat and lyrically entertaining 'One More for the Road,' one of the only fast songs on here along with 'Living the Lie.'
Craig Goldy's guitar riffs do the job adequately, but are more concerned with establishing a slow rhythm than anything else, leaving only his solos to demonstrate any flair, which they do well. This album requires a certain degree of patience that Dio fans may not be familiar with, and while it's not one of the band's lesser works, it's a far cry from being in the top league.
