5.0 out of 5 stars It's Dio. Of course it's wicked.
Dio is fastly becoming one of my favourite vocalists and frontman.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dio is Good ; with BS/H&H he is Best
got into Dio thru Black Sabbath, and followed him from there into Heaven & Hell ; from there visited some of his independent work , first with Rainbow and then with Dio ; my conclusion is that he is at his Best with Black Sabbath / Heaven & Hell : why? possibly its due to the Chemistry ; and, without him Heaven & Hell are currently sidelined ; after all, he is credited...

This review is from: Magica / Killing The Dragon (Audio CD)
Dio is fastly becoming one of my favourite vocalists and frontman. I'm 17 and I've only just got into his stuff about a couple off years ago from buying his awesome debut solo album Holy Diver, and this aint far from that classic. These masterpieces are amazing, filled with great metal riffs, wicked solos, great lyrics and obviously Ronnies God like vocals. I admit the album Magica did take a couple of listens to fully get into it and i now thankfully i love it. Magica is dio first concept album and it is indeed a brilliant one, with some amazing songs including Lord Of the Last Day, Turn To Stone (the short solo at the is breathtaking), Ebeil & LosinG My Insanity, this album is a tiny bit let down by the last track Magica which is an 18 minutes long storytelling by dio himself to be honest it does get boring but thats a small minor. Next is Killing The Dragon a wicked heavy metal album from the first minute of the first song Killing The Dragon you know it's gonna be a kick ass heavy metal album and dio delivers just that. The best songs here are Killing The Dragon, Along Came The Spider, Better In The Dark, Push (probably the best on the album) & Guilty. Both of these album are just good old heavy metal by Dio the guitarists are awesome in the albums. So if you're a dio fan and wondering about this album buy it it wont dissapoint you. if you're new to dios career then buy Holy Diver i'm sure by now you heard many great things about it, and yes they are all true. I should mention the liner notes aswell they arnt the originals and have no lyrics but dont be put off by this because it's worth the money for the albums. In my opinion Dios solo career kicks ozzys solo careers arse(he did do some awesome album though to be fair). So overall 2 awesome albums from dio at an excellent price what can any dio ask for?. HAIL DIO!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE RONNIE STRIKES AGAIN, 26 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Magica / Killing The Dragon (Audio CD)
AWESOME!!! MAGICA(by Dio), Crimson Idol (by Lawless), and The Elder (by Simmons/Stanley) are three of the greatest conceptual albums of all the times. His voice says it ALL. And on the other side, Killing the dragon is one of the best machines that dio releases lately (Doug Aldrich...a wizard). Buy it, and have a great time...I do assure you, you shall not regret it!!

This review is from: Magica / Killing The Dragon (Audio CD)
Outstanding in my opinion, Magica appeals in all areas for me. I do like
concept albums/cds.
Killing the Dragon is Dio at his best, outstanding vocals as with all
of Dio's albums.

got into Dio thru Black Sabbath, and followed him from there into Heaven & Hell ; from there visited some of his independent work , first with Rainbow and then with Dio ; my conclusion is that he is at his Best with Black Sabbath / Heaven & Hell : why? possibly its due to the Chemistry ; and, without him Heaven & Hell are currently sidelined ; after all, he is credited with re-vitalizing BS ('Dehumanizer' sees him at his Best there) ; and with H&H ' Devil you Know' is all-time Astounding...

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent value for money and damn good albums, 11 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Magica / Killing The Dragon (Audio CD)
This was a snip at the price, two albums showing both sides of Dio, Magica is a superb concept album with Graig Goldy playing some great melodic stuff on guitar and fantastic lyrics and vocals from Ronnie, Killing the Dragon is the complete opposite , it's a straight ahead hard rock album with Whitesnakes Doug Aldrich playing some excellent metal riffs, highly recommended.
