AllMusic Review by

In the annals of rock music, sitting on a gilded gold throne just about as far as you can get from Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone," sits Ritchie Blackmore and his post-Deep Purple hard rock outfit, Rainbow. Exploring the British band's back catalog, greatest-hits collection Since You Been Gone takes listeners on a career-spanning journey. With its rotating lineup and ever-evolving style, a compilation like this is the perfect way to sample everything Rainbow had to offer during their tenure, dishing up samples of Ronnie James Dio's quasi-mystical howls alongside Graham Bonnet's ferocious drive, making for a compilation that's sure to satisfy new listeners.
