Best Dio AlbumsI only know a few (the ones I own), but I believe Dio deserves more recognition. So please add as many as you can! Dio only. No Rainbow/Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell.
I had to create this list to honor the most powerful voice in metal, Ronnie James Dio.
Metal Never Dies!
The Top Ten
This album contains some of the best music ever made. By the way I'm surprised to see Dream Evil at number two!
Undoubtedly his best. Why?
Stand Up and Shout 10/10
Holy Diver 12/10
Caught in the Middle 10/10
Don't Talk to Strangers 11/10
Straight Through the Heart 9/10
Rainbow in the Dark 10/10
Shame on the Night 8/10
This is good but no way should be #1. Angry Machine's or Strange Highways is way better.
One of the greatest rock albums of all time containing his best 5 tracks:-
- Don't Talk To Strangers
- Stand Up And Shout
- Rainbow In The Dark
- Holy Diver
- Shame On The Night
RJD - Sadly missed but he has left a true legacy with this phenomenal album, a classic!
No way is dream evil above this gem. Dream evil contains the songs all the fools sailed away, night people and I could have been a dreamer, however I hate the song Overlove. Whereas I love every song on last in line except I speed at night which is listenable. I think last in line should be above dream evil
Surprised to see this 4th behind Strange Highways and Lock Up The Wolves. I though this was the an favourite besides Holy Diver. by the way the sale rates for Strange Highways bombed, so this should be second, followed by Sacred Heart
I love this albums!, my favorite songs are we rock and the last in line
Dynamite! Blow your speakers listening to this epic album! m/V 3 Comments
I don't get why this album is considered the second worst Dio album. It's actually pretty decent. Jesus, Mary and the Holy Ghost, One Foot in the Grave and Strange Highways are all belters.
Dio's heaviest album to date! Totally underrated.
Best album of all time
Favorite songs on this one are "Hey Angel" and "Why are they Watching Me"
This for me is unquestionably the best DIO album behind the Vivian Campbell records.Outstanding.
Great guitarist�'s and great album very nice!
Great line-up the guitarist, s on fire! O
Is on fire!
Some great songs; Dream Evil, I Could Have Been a Dreamer and All The Fools Sailed Away...
R.I. P R.J. D
From Nihgt People to When A Woman Cries the greatest work of Dio solo career. With All the fools sailed away and Sunset Superman as special leading songs.
I think this is his best
One of my least favorite dio studio recordings.🙁V 1 Comment
A bit different to his regular sound. Push is a very underrated song and the title track is awesome.
This is an underrated album. I would say it is the best since 'The Last in Line'.
Banger album, a return to his more successful sound, that his fans loved. Favourite track is Losing My Insanity. I love this album
An awesome concept album and a definite disappointment he wasn't able to make II and I.
At least we have Electra to know what could've been.
Anyway, an awesome story told through awesome songs.
A great concept album, really unique and heavy sound.

Well just by looking at this list I can see that this album is underrated. It's better than dream evil if you ask me. I think when vivian Campbell left the band wasn't as good as it used to be. Anyway belter album should be higher
Looks like Holy Diver's in no danger of losing its place, but this is more of the light, keyboard-drenched Dio that brightens my day.
The underrated songs on this album, such as: Shoot shoot, like the beat of a heart, another lie and just another day are the kinds of songs that I love and make the album 3rd best for me. - metalwillneverdie
I'm suprised that this awesome album is 8. It should be in first 3, along with Holy Diver and Last in Line.V 3 Comments
I can't believe this is rated lowest. For me, this is the second best Dio album (my favorite being The Last in Line), partially because of the atmosphere. Just listen to the title track or
Better than strange highways and lock up the wolves in my opinion
This is totally underrated. Sure, it's very different to the better sound (in fact, it's more like a Nirvana album), but there are still some absolute killers like, Institutional Man, Don't Tell the Kids, Hunter of te Heart, Stay Out Of My Mind, and this is your life. So underrated!
Heaven and hell?
