Top 5 Dio albums


Hard for me to choose 1 and 2, I can flip flop any time!! I have listened to these so many times it mind boggling!! Absolute classics!!

1 Holy Diver
2 Last in line
3 Lock Up the Wolves (under rated classic!!)
4 Sacred Heart
5 Killing the Dragon (later day classic!!!) I'm also partial to Master of the Moon but I think KTD wins this for me

5. Strange Highway

1 & 2 can [sign in to see URL]'re both so close and magical. Strange Highway is exceptionally dark and almost industrial sounding coming off his second exit from Black Sabbath.

Re: Top 5 Dio albums


I find all Dio pretty awful, post Last in line…….but must admit haven’t fully investigated the LPs of which some of you speak highly. So plan to line up Lock up/SH for later in the week

Re: Top 5 Dio albums


I am sure that this will be a unpopular view, but I don't like any of the Dio albums. I loved his work in Rainbow, and even more so his work in Black Sabbath. However I have listened and listened again over the years to find what I am missing, and can't find it.

Sorry!! emoticon

Rainbow in the dark is one Dio classic I think has stood up very well, Y&T do an amazing cover btw! you can't beat the first two LPs really, I like STTH, Invisible, WR, Mystery, ONITC and LIL especially.

It's a matter of taste. To me, the Dio albums were a combination of elements from Rainbow and Sabbath.
I think Holy Diver is as good as Rising and Heaven & Hell.

1. Holy Diver
2. Last in Line
3. Sacred Heart
4. Magica
5. Master of the Moon/Killing the Dragon (can't decide)

Yes of course, I would never say that the Dio albums are not good, just that I can't see what everyone can.
