8 comments on “DIO – Lock Up The Wolves

  1. This album takes it’s fair share of jabs… I love it though. Not just because it’s DIO… it Rocks heavy! My favorite song is “Born On The Sun” – it just rivets me. Jens Johansson also played keys for Yngwie J. Malmsteen… he is very good at his craft.

    My take is this album came out when Heavy Metal was starting to take the “big snub” in the press… with Grunge on the rise. 1990 was/is a year to finger point for the beginning of the decline in Heavy Metal fever among the commercial masses… it wasn’t that way with me though!

    I actually like “Lock Up The Wolves” much better than “Sacred Heart”, if I was to make a DIO album comparison. Of course it’s not the “best” DIO album ever… yet as you come across in your review, it’s pretty darned good.

  2. I bought this the day it came out. It’s decent, better than the next few that came out from Dio. To me it is kind of slow. Also I really liked Dream Evil and though Craig Goldie brought a lot to that album so I was sad to see him not be around for another album.
    I probably like Robertson better in DC4.
