Ex-Rainbow singer Ronnie James Dio's second and final studio album with Black Sabbath is an oft-overlooked gem within the Sabbath catalog. While the legendary group's first four studio albums carry the weight of being among the most defining records of the genre, the two post-Ozzy Osbourne albums (this and 1980's Heaven and Hell, while more traditional heavy metal in tone, are powerfully tight collections that shine particular light on guitarist Tony Iommi's virtuoso guitar leads and a rhythm section never known for its flash or funk. For Mob Rules Vinny Appice replaces original drummer Bill Ward, who had taken leave with illness, and Appice's aggression is felt throughout. "Turn Up the Night" and "The Mob Rules" cruise with the sleek assurance typical of '80s metal and an admittedly un-Sabbath-like fluidity. "Voodoo" is closer to the group's churning speed, with the seven-plus-minute epic "The Sign of the Southern Cross" perfectly fitting the band's persona and groove.
