Dio - _The Very Beast of_
(Rhino/Warner, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
It was only time 'till this release was to make its way to record stores and into the hands of Dio fans worldwide. Finally someone has decided to document Ronnie James Dio's stunning career as a solo singer, and yes, folks, it rocks. From the opening surge of "Stand Out and Shout" or the hypnotic metallic groove of "Holy Diver", this disc just flows with passion and true metal mastery from Dio himself. Few singers have ever been able to deliver with such caliber. Listen to tracks like "Rainbow in the Dark", "Rock 'n' Roll Children" and "The Last in Line" and you too will bear witness to the voice that rocked the metal world and never really let go.
