The first solo album by former (and future) Dio guitarist Craig Goldy. Working under the name Craig Goldy's Ritual, the album features two vocalists. Mike Stone provides vocals for about half of the tracks, while Goldy's ex-Giuffria colleague David Glen Eisley sings on the other half. Eisley has such a powerful voice it's no surprise that his tracks far outshine Stone's. The music on Hidden in Plain Sight is not as "metal" as Goldy's Dio work, instead coming across as more of a straightforward hard rock (perhaps hair metal) approach very similar to Giuffria and House of Lords. It's the kind of memorable melodic hard rock that the early 90's were so well known for.
