  • I remember when this Black Sabbath come back album came out in 1992 or so. Ronnie James Dio was back at the helm and a very cool music video for “T.V. Crimes” (with a junky, obsolete television playing nothing but Sabbath is constantly being stolen) was playing on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball. I liked the single, but only later did I purchase Dehumanizer. I was stunned at how solid this album is. It is right up there with Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. In fact, I like it better than Mob Rules. The first track “Computer God” just rocks! The vocals are awesome (as they usually are for Dio, but especially on this track). “T.V. Crimes” is a fast-paced rocker. “After all (The Dead)” and “Letters from Earth” are dark and haunting. “Sins of the Father” is a track I think Ozzy would have sounded great on as it sounds like his style. “Too Late” is one of my favorites. It is a very powerful song, quiet at the beginning and then launches into a blistering metal track with killer lyrics: “It’s too late too late for tears, too late and no one hears you, welcome to forever, it’s too late.” “Time Machine” is the most mainstream of the tracks with two versions on this album (one from Wayne’s World which I cannot tell apart from the original). The anthem here, though, is “I.” It is amazing musically and lyrically: “I am virgin, I’m a whore, Giving nothing the taker the maker of war, I’ll smash your face in, but with a smile.” There is nothing weak on this album. It rocks from beginning to end. If you are missing this album in your Black Sabbath/Dio collection, Buy It! You will not be disappointed.
