    "The Very Beast of Dio" is essential Heavy Metal!

    Posted
    Fiend

    Ronnie James Dio was/still is an elite vocalist for Black Sabbath, he is simply majestic at Metal vocals with his solo career as well. Every song here is ramped up Metal that not only showcases Dio's vocals, the musicians that back up Dio are incredible. Vinnie Appice on drums and Vivian Campbell on guitar are true Metal greats. Dio sets the mood for each song, his vocals are what provides the imagery and tempo, always leaving me in awe as I listen to his music. Lyrically, Dio always provides the Metal fantasy with personal triumph and defeat as his subject matter. This CD is essential to buy for all new fans of Dio and Metal. For veteran Dio fans, this CD is perfect with the song list, with having 16 greatest songs. I can never shy away from the greatest hits CD's, especially when you are a serious fan of the artist for so many years. Ronnie James Dio epitomizes every aspect of Heavy Metal!

    An excellent overview of the band's career, especially given the unevenness of some of their albums. Ronnie James Dio honed his metal chops singing lead in both Rainbow and Black Sabbath, and his own band is sort of a reflection of both: the sinister, medievally gothic elegance of the former, and the crushingly heavy, doom-laden riffs of the latter. That combination, plus solid songwriting, made Dio's best work some of the most invigorating British metal of the '80s, and those qualities are best concentrated here.

    This is a good collection of Dio songs from his vast catalog. Pop it in and hit the road or start your workout. This CD is a good starter pack for anyone new to Dio as he was one of the great voices in rock and roll history.

    Sufficient early-years of solo band.

    This contains the greatest hits of Dio's first-half. Will satisfy the casual fan, but a separate, posthumous second volume contains latter-day hits.
