Was just listening to some Dio earlier today and had a discussion at work about the best songs Dio sang. So I got to thinking. (Which does hurt for me to do! (Plus I have nothing better to do tonight)) What is your favorite Dio album.

 

Now I did leave out the live and greatest hits. Partly because of space.

 

My favorite is Last In Line. Even though Sacred Heart was my first album by Dio I always thought Last in Line was just a great album with great songs! Plus Vivian Cambell could play guitar when he was with Dio!

Ronnie James DIO is probably in my top 5 ALL-TIME artists.....From Elf to Rainbow to Sabbath to DIO....I've heard 'em all....

 

That being said, I like 'Dream Evil' as a whole....my favorite DIO track is 'Last in Line'.....favorite OVERALL RJD song is 'Stargazer'.....nothing beats this song, IMHO.

 

Everything after Dream Evil sucks, IMHO....a couple of songs off Magica, and most of MotM is good.....

 

anyway, I voted for DREAM EVIL.....

 

 

P.S. he also sings on "We're Stars', and on two songs off of Kerry Livgren's CDs.

I'm with you on everything after Dream Evil, however I think with Magica he started to get back on track and I like Magica alot.

 

I have everything that I can think of Ronnie has done with the exception of a copy of Hear n Aid. One day I'll find that CD. But he is also in my top 5 and one of the few people I haven't seen that I would like to see.

2 RJD songs on this CD:  Mask of the Great Deceiver, and Live for the King

I do have that CD. The song just didn't click. I guess I was thinking of a album title. Scared me there. Thought I was going go shopping tonight. :D

I went with Holy Diver, but it was a close race between that and Last In Line. Being old, I bought Holy Diver as soon as it came out, etc. but hey, at least I'm not as old as Ronnie... :blink:

It was a toss up between Holy Diver and Last In Line but I chose Holy Diver by a hair. Dream Evil is also a great album with Sacred Heart just behind that. Killing the Dragon is easily my favorite of anything he has released since '90.

Amusing story I was told about DIO by Vivian Campbell.

If you have got a copy of DIO first live video, where they a playing Donnington.

And you can't hear Viv's guitar on first song, reason why you cant hear it because it not plugged in.

:banger:

    • Same for me.  I thought the first single was decent but nothing else grabbed me. 
    • New lyric video for 'Save Us From Ourselves'.    
    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New video for 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-
