The grand wizard of classic rock. A poet of hope for the downtrodden. The single most important vocal technician in the history of heavy metal. All of these accolades have been garlanded upon the royal roar known as Ronnie James Dio.

He was born on July 10, 1942 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and raised in upstate New York and once said that he would have preferred playing for the ... Read more in Amazon's Dio Store

The first album by Dio and Ronnie Dio's voice is amazing. After leaving Black Sabbath we hear Dio making music that is more than an equal to any of the Sabbath stuff.
This album is full of great heavy metal tracks and in my opinion has some of the best of Dio's work on it. The title track, Holy Diver, is a heavy metal classic, as is Don't Talk to Strangers.
If you have ever heard anything by Sabbath (with Dio as lead singer) and liked it, then you will love this album. It is quite possibly one of the classic heavy metal albums of the 80's and that put it up against stiff competition and it still shines through as one of the best.

This edition of Dio's classic Holy Diver is remastered by Andy Pearce as are the other Dio 2012 deluxe releases, which means, unlike other Deluxe Editions out there, this one isn't simply a volume bloated re-release. Very fine, clean and detailed sound, but just a tad bright. Disc 2 has some wonderful rare goodies that alone make this worthy of the purchase. The packaging is your standard for these editions, a wonderful foldout digipak and an informative booklet stuffed into one of the open flaps. Highly recommended edition if you have the cash. Tracklist below.

Disc 1 (Original newly remastered album)

01. Stand Up and Shout
02. Holy Diver
03. Gypsy" Vivian Campbell
04. Caught in the Middle
05. Don't Talk to Strangers
06. Straight Through the Heart
07. Invisible
08. Rainbow in the Dark
09. Shame on the Night

Disc 2

01. Evil Eyes (studio recording, originally appeared on B-Side to Holy Diver single)
02. Stand Up & Shout (Live B-Side, from the Rainbow in the Dark single)
03. Straight Through the Heart (Live B-Side, from the Rainbow in the Dark single)

King Biscuit Flower Hour, 30th October 1983:
04. Stand Up & Shout
05. Shame on the Night
06. Children of the Sea
07. Holy Diver
08. Rainbow in the Dark
09. Man on the Silver Mountain

Format: Audio CD
Dio had a lot to prove following his acrimonious departure from the Sabbath ranks. With a flawless back catalogue to contend with the stakes were high for the diminutive front man to prove his worth in a solo outfit. The result of this is Holy Diver. Holy Diver, though, is not really a natural progression from the sublime early 80's defining metal of Heaven and Hell or Mob Rules (that honour goes to the slick follow up cd, The Last In Line). Instead it trades on the earlier Rainbow style, but with a distinctly more strident and harder edge to the overall delivery. Brash stand out opener `Stand Up and Shout kicks things off as a call to arms for the Dio faithful, fuelled on a frenetic choppy riff and Appice's bludgeoning drumming - this is a breathtaking kick off before the plodding title track slows the proceedings down somewhat. From there on in the rest of the album divides neatly into strong and pleasing melodic filler tracks (Gypsy, Caught In The Middle etc), evergreen Dio live staples (Shame on The Night and Rainbow In The Dark) and really truly inspired and darker gems (Invisible, Don't Talk To Strangers) that lift the album to classic status. Ultimately it's more 70's than 80's and is pipped at the post by Last In Line in terms of overall class, but as an opening salvo to the doubters it is a resounding success. One question remains though - what on earth is a Holy Diver? Answers on a post card please.

Ronnie James Dio is about 5 ft 2 tall, slight build, retiring, obliging and likes the company of animals. Where this guy gets this enormous, terrifying metal voice from is anyone's guess, but the nice guy sound nasty!

This is his first solo album and argued to be his best by a large chuink of fans. It's tight and has a great hard edge to it. This was what metal was all about for ages - heavy drums and headbanging rythmns together with soaring vocals and guitar riffs you could slice a brick with. Dio does this all first class.

It is admittedly dated now, but still a great listen. Ronnie goes OTT with the fantasy lyrics, and there's enough dragons, wizards, beasts, evil and the like to make the average Dragonforce track look like a petting zoo.

Kicks off with unashamedly cliched speed track 'Stand up and Shout' before settling in for some great tracks that stand alone. 'Don't talk to strangers' remains a classic remembered by those who knew this album in the 1980s. Loses little as it goes on - 'Rainbow in the dark' brings in keyboards and fills a few dance floors.

Very much a cliched, and at times dated album, but still rock-solid metal that is worth listening to now. Rock on Ronnie, you're a metal God, but don't try to fool us with your 'evil' lark, Will Young's scarier than you are! ;-)
