Top Ten Ronnie James Dio Albums
The Top Ten
Complete powerhouse, the album art sums it up perfectly - HumzahJ
One of the first power metal albums. Legendary. - IronSabbathPriest
Exactly. You could also argue Rising and Long live Rock N' Roll. The thing is though Rising only has 6 songs which isn't that big of a deal but it does limit the album a little bit. But you could most definitely argue. - gameofIceandFire
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
This is a hard choice ass his best solo, Rainbow and Black Sabbath are all so close but I think Holy Diver just about takes the title. A true classic without a single duff song on it. Probably, no definitely, one of the top 5 rock albums of all time that doesn't age.
Dio's voice and Campbell's guitar playing have never been better and the chemistry with Bain and Appice shines through.
Think I'll go and put this on now!
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.
Love this album - DarkSideOfDragons
Ritchie and Ronnie were at their best here
This album is very awesome and underrated. - IronSabbathPriest
The most underrated Ronnie album - EzP2
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.
I wish the bot voting for this item would stop. - IronSabbathPriest
Carolina county ball & Ain't It All Amusing are excellent tracks.👍🏻
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.
Best live album ever - EzP2
