Top Ten Ronnie James Dio Albums


The Top Ten

1 Holy Diver - Dio

Rainbow in the Dark - one of the greatest metal songs of all time. Right here on the Holy Diver album. Excellent - Shake_n_Bake13

2 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

I personally think that Rainbow Rising is overrated. The best, the definitive RJD albums? Heaven and Hell, Holy Diver, Dream Evil, and Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow.

Every song on Heaven and Hell and Holy Diver are excellent, and they are my favourite RJD albums. If H&H is a 10, then HD is a 9.99.

3 Rising - Rainbow

One of the first power metal albums. Legendary. - IronSabbathPriest

4 The Last In Line - Dio
5 Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Rainbow
6 The Mob Rules - Black Sabbath

This album is very awesome and underrated. - IronSabbathPriest

7 Strange Highways - Dio

Why on earth wasn't this album on the list? Give Her the Gun, Strange Highways, Here's to You? Some of Ronnie's most powerful vocal work is right here on this album.

8 Lock Up the Wolves - Dio
9 The Devil You Know - Heaven & Hell
10 Dehumanizer - Black Sabbath

The Contenders

11 Holy Diver Live - Dio
12 Dream Evil - Dio

This is a seriously underrated album. With awesome classics like All the Fools Sailed Away, Naked in the Rain, and Sunset Superman? Not to mention the title track? It definitely deserves to be higher.

13 Live in London, Hammersmith Apollo 1993 - Dio
14 Carolina County Ball - Elf
15 On Stage - Rainbow

Ritchie and Ronnie were at their best here

16 Long Live Rock 'N' Roll - Rainbow V 1 Comment
17 Trying to Burn the Sun - Elf
