Top Ten Ronnie James Dio Albums

IronSabbathPriest

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 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

Complete powerhouse, the album art sums it up perfectly - HumzahJ

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

4 The Last In Line - Dio
5 Dehumanizer - Black Sabbath
6 Holy Diver Live - Dio
7 Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Rainbow
8 Carolina County Ball - Elf

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

Carolina county ball & Ain't It All Amusing are excellent tracks.👍🏻

9 Lock Up the Wolves - Dio
10 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.

The Contenders

11 The Devil You Know - Heaven & Hell
12 The Mob Rules - Black Sabbath

This album is very awesome and underrated. - IronSabbathPriest

13 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.

14 Trying to Burn the Sun - Elf
15 Live in London, Hammersmith Apollo 1993 - Dio
16 On Stage - Rainbow

Ritchie and Ronnie were at their best here

17 Long Live Rock 'N' Roll - Rainbow
