  • With the departure of Ronnie James Dio from Rainbow in 1978, guitarist Richie Blackmore could have easily sought a Dio clone and continued the group's recognizable sound. He instead brought Graham Bonnet aboard, a dramatic belter with a completely different style. Blackmore would also recruit former Deep Purple mate Roger Glover on bass and the talented Don Airey on keyboards. The band's sound went from sword-and-sorcery epics to more straight-ahead rock.
  • "All Night Long" is one of the more popular tunes, a track on which Bonnet's makes his powerful presence immediately felt. Another equally accessible and handclap-filled effort is "Since You've Been Gone." Both songs received FM airplay and charted the commercial course that later albums would take. Don Airey's keyboards provide a haunting intro to "Eyes of the World." "No Time to Lose" is a '50s R&B number with a harder edge. Bonnet sings the blues on the downtrodden "Love's No Friend." Premier skinsman Cozy Powell's shuffle boosts "Lost in Hollywood." DOWN TO EARTH is tight all around, and shows the band's ability to progress. An excellent hard-rock album.
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The album is a strong one....The likes of 'All Night Long,' 'Lost In Hollywood' and, of course, 'Since You've Been Gone' will always have a place on classic rock radio."
