iTunes Review

Rainbow was two different bands before and after Ronnie James Dio’s departure, and this concise collection gives equal space to each side of the band’s image. Before he left in 1979, Dio and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore carried on one of the most fruitful frontman-guitarist partnerships in the history of heavy metal. With “Man On the Silver Mountain,” “Stargazer,” and “Kill the King” they all but wrote the blueprint for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and the 1977 live performance of “Mistreated” shows how easily the band’s rock heroics translated to an arena crowd. Once Dio left, Blackmore used a series of vocalists to reinvented Rainbow as an AOR band. First there was Graham Bonnet, who helped make “Since You Been Gone” one of the catchiest hard rock songs of the late ‘70s. The rest of this collection features the singing of Joe Lynn White, who sounds a bit like David Coverdale, or Survivor’s Dave Bickler and whose sensitive vocals work for “Stone Cold” and “Street of Dreams,” two of the era’s power ballads. 20th Century Masters imparts a sense of the scope and evolution of Ritchie Blackmore’s vision for the band.

Hey iTunes review: the singer's name is Joe Lynn Turner, not Joe Lynn White. C'mon!


DUDE WHOEVER WROTE THAT KELLY CLARKSON DOES A BETTER JOB THEN RAINBOW (one of the ultimate pioneering heavy metal bands), NEEDS TO GET THEIR HEAD CHEACKED!!! On that happy note i would like to say that Rainbow is a candadate for best band ever. They were the starting band for the great Ronnie James Dio (Black Sabbath, Scorpians, etc), they were founded by Riche Blackmore (Deep Purple), and was a pioneering Metal band, like Cream, Black Sabbath, and Deep Purple!!! Long story short, THEY ROCK!!!! BUY THEM!!!!


one of the most underappreciated bands ever


Formed: 1974 in England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

The brainchild of former Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, Rainbow quickly developed into one of the '70s most successful heavy metal bands behind charismatic front man Ronnie James Dio. Together, the duo would produce a string of acclaimed albums which are still considered classics of the genre. But the group would change their musical approach numerous times following the singer's departure, eventually confusing and alienating much of their audience. Releasing eight albums during it's decade...
