Great album, bought it on vinyl back in the day and played it to death! Sadly you're probably right, they were too intellectual or adult to appeal to the masses and it didn't really sound like what else was around at the time.

Rob is such a talent, even though his solo albums are very different to the Riverdogs, there's some great material to be found on them.

As Jimmy says, the live album is excellent too. The opening song "Can't Have You" and "Sweet Mystery" are fantastic.

And yes, Viv's recorded three albums I can listen to all day too! I also like the Shadow King album he did although it's not as good as this one or the aforementioned Dio albums. As much as I like Leppard and I know it's been said before, I feel his talent is slightly wasted in that band.
