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

Best song, best album. - McKing1003

2 Rising - Rainbow

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

3 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.

4 The Last In Line - Dio
5 Dehumanizer - Black Sabbath
6 Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Rainbow
7 Lock Up the Wolves - Dio
8 The Mob Rules - Black Sabbath

This album is very awesome and underrated. - IronSabbathPriest

9 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.

10 Carolina County Ball - Elf

I wish the bot voting for this item would stop. - IronSabbathPriest

The Contenders

11 Holy Diver Live - Dio
12 Strange Highways - Dio

13 The Devil You Know - Heaven & Hell
14 Live in London, Hammersmith Apollo 1993 - Dio
15 Long Live Rock 'N' Roll - Rainbow

Love this album - DarkSideOfDragons
