  Great Album, but more stuff to come, from this genious band.

Rating: 10 Best of Rainbow, best what Blackmore ever wrote, best of Dio to ... simply a 70's masterpiece, harmony, magic, weird inspiration, weird lyrics, muisc and feeling

Rating: 7 Solid hard rock album riddled with some inconsistencies. Some tracks sound ahead of it's time while others sound like the track was cut in '69, six years before the record was made. Still, there's some can't miss songs on this album. "Self Portrait', "Catch the Rainbow" and "Temple of the King" really shows what this band was capable of.
