Great Tribute To Ronnie James Dio! Posted by: from: Columbus, Ohio on I do not care for every artist on this album but I feel the following tracks are re done very well! Anthrax - Neon Nights Adrenaline Mob - The Mob Rules Starstruck - Motorhead (Featuring Biff Byford) The Temple Of The King - Scorpions Egypt (The Chains Are On) - Doro Catch The Rainbow - Featuring Glenn Huges, Craig Goldy, Rudy Sarzo, Scott Warren and Simon Wright Man On The Silver Mountain - Featuring Rob Halford, Doug Aldrich, Vinnie Appice, Jeff Pilson and Scott Warren Ronnie Rising Medley (A Light In The Black, Tarot Woman, Stargazer, Kill The King) - Metallica This Is Your Life - Dio (An Unreleased Track) Also, the other songs are played and produced well. They just don't apeal to me personall but it is indeed a great release overall. If you like the other artists on this CD you'll probably like their versions as well.It's a great release for the collection.

A Great tribute album Posted by: from: Brooklyn, NY on This is a Great Tribute Album dedicated to a truly Great man, namely Ronnie James Dio. For those of you who have lived under a rock your entire lives And don't know who he was, he was the most amazing vocalist for many rock and metal bands from the 60's through the 2000's.! He fronted such notable acts such as Rainbow, Black Sabbath, and his own band Did. His vocal range was phenomenal and he truly had a unique sound. This tribute album does him justice with the collection of artists gathered on here. The final song is Dio himself doing a wonderful song that was never released. It's like hearing his final soliloquy and brings a tear to your eye. Enjoy this tribute as much as I did! R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio (1942-2010)

Nice covers, could be better! Posted by: from: on This album is definitely for Dio fans only. It's worth it for the covers by a lot of bands that obviously were big fans too! Only DIo fans will want to spend money on this CD however. Not all the songs are strong and some of the artist collaborations are odd.

Great group of musicians Posted by: from: Baytown Texas on Great gathering for a great cause- Love 75%, several covers I have heard before- but a nice collection. Favorite track is probably "Catch the Rainbow".. Craig Goldie was Dio's last guitar player and one of the longest reigning. He is also leader of the touring "Dio Deciples". You can tell he was heavily involved with the production of "Catch the Rainbow" -the guitar is higher in the mix than the vocal. That's my only complaint- I would prefer Glenn Hughe's vocal were at the top of the mix as it was in the original Rainbow version with Dio's wonderful voice. Martin Birch was a genius in his day.

A great tribute CD Posted by: from: on A tribute CD to one of the greatest rock voices. The artists that appeared on this CD showed how much they loved his music and how much they admired Ronnie himself. With the last song being Ronnie himself, showing what a great vocalist he is. He was one of the friendliest people in the music industry and is sorely missed.

An Outstanding Tribute Posted by: from: Pittsburgh, PA on All of the songs are outstanding, of course, being Dio tunes! The artists who play them do them justice every time (except for possibly the Tenacious D song, which I feel could have been less campy and more epic instead). Dio's soft piano & vocal tune at the end is a total change of gears, but it absolutely leaves you feeling emotional and empowered, just as most of his work has always done. It should have been 11 stars! ;-)

Dio's songs touch allot of us, This whole CD Rocks Posted by: from: Stafford, Ct. on Ronnie James Dio has touch allot of us rockers. Whether it was with Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, or his own band. He died to soon, his voice carries out to all. I did not really get into him until the Heaven and Hell Album which was his first one with Black Sabbath. If you like Heavy Metal, Hard Rock. This CD is for you. Plus, some of the sales go into his Stand up and Shout Cancer fund.... Peace, Keep on Rocking...
