If you're looking for a good deal on the album it's $9.99 from BestBuy.com, and it comes with a bonus DVD and has free shipping.
Even though I don't particularly like the album, I do still have it on order from there...
And yeah, the lyrics are exceptionally bad, even by Dio standards. Sometimes, they're typical Dio fare - like "Bible Black," which I don't think is exactly horrible. It's like a cheesy campfire story that tries to be scary or something. It's not great, but it has some coherency to it. But other times, the lyrics are just absolutely senseless. I find that disappointing, because Dio’s obviously a smart, well-read guy who has spent his life traveling the world. You’d think he could do better than nonsense about “caravans to Superman” and stuff.
