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.V 1 Comment
I love this albums!, my favorite songs are we rock and the last in line
Pure magic all the way through, from the fast and energetic
The whole reason the top 3 are here is because of MURRAY!
The Last in Line, We Rock and Mystery are just three amazing tracks on this album.
A classic. And the last to feature Vivian Campbell, a great guitarist.
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.
No diamonds here, but in general a very tight album that you can listen from start to end. Mainstream, radio friendly sound and more melodic than previous dio albums. Thumbs up! m/V 1 Comment
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.
The concept of all concepts! Listen and learn!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'.
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.
A bit of a mainstream sound no doubt, but songs like Rock n Roll Children, Hungry for Heaven, Sacred Heart and King of Rock n Roll are absolute killersV 1 Comment
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
Dio's heaviest album to date! Totally underrated.V 1 Comment
