Dream Evil is the fourth studio release by the heavy metal band Dio. It features former Rough Cutt members Craig Goldy and Claude Schnell. Dream Evil includes the singles “All the Fools Sailed Away” and “I Could Have Been a Dreamer”.
Dream Evil is by no means a departure from the Dio formula that was so successful for his first three solo albums. All of the elements that made them so successful are yet again retained here. However, what makes things different this time around is that Dio has more of a melodious side to him, which he puts use here rather than relying on the riffs and delivery he learned at the school of Sabbath. He even touches on the power ballad (a sure sign that the style had fully infiltrated metal) with “All the Fool Sailed Away.” The title track and “Sunset Superman” also proved to be two of Dio’s most well-known, and most loved songs in his massive catalog. Not an essential release, but one that diehard fans will be sure to want in their collection.
