Top 10 Dio Albums Ranked
10. Magica (2000)
You’ll light up the universe
It’s there in your head
Then crazy comes to call
Break me down
I’m only an everyone
Running from free
Running from me
And though it’s not of my choosing
I’m losing my insanity
Stand Out Tracks: 'Losing My Insanity' and 'Lord of the Last Day.'
9. Master of the Moon (2004)
"Well I’ve never been here before
But I’m coming back tomorrow
For the real pain a cold rain again
Nice day for a crucifixion
Heard a new prediction
That we can all be saved so I’ll have
One more for the road play it again
One more for the road"
Stand Out Tracks: 'One More For The Road' and Living The Lie.'
8. Angry Machines (1996)
"Inside the walls I’ve made
To keep out all who reach for me
I might have lost my way
And I can’t come out again
Don’t come around here anymore
You may infect yourself
Don’t ever cross this line
You could see monsters
In your mind there just like me"
Stand Out Tracks: 'Hunter of the Heart' and 'Institutional Man'
7. Strange Highways (1993)
Back to the street again or was that yesterday
Another yesterday’s gone, gone
Back in the jungle running with the animals
Howling at the sign of the spotlight
Most dreams are made of glass
You throw just one stone and then there goes your last window
Can’t you tell
That every wish that you’ve made filled up the well"
Stand Out Tracks: 'Hollywood Black' and 'Bring Down the Rain'
6. Killing the Dragon (2002)
"Silence we hunt for the queen
Sign of the cross and pray in between
Look by the light of the day
She’s hiding till dark waiting to play, hey, hey
Something’s taken a child and it all must end
Time to be killing the dragon again"
Stand Out Tracks: 'Along Comes a Spider' and the title track.
5. Dream Evil (1987)
"Running with the wolf pack
Feel like I’m never coming back
And every time there’s sunshine
I’m blind, yeah
I am everybody
And everyone that I know is me
Everyone that I know won’t see
I could have been a dreamer
I could have been a shooting star
I could have been a dreamer, yeah"
Stand Out Tracks: 'I Could Have Been a Dreamer' and 'Night People.'
4. Lock Up The Wolves (1990)
"Spent the night on the road
And never saw the miles go
I’ve got to get free from myself
Now stories were made to be told
And here’s the one that I know
Oh I can’t hide it any more
There’s evil on Queen Street
Some evil up the road"
Stand Out Tracks: 'Hey Angel' and 'Wild One'
3. The Last In Line (1984)
"We’re all thrown upon the cross
We’ll be thrown before the toss
You can release yourself but the only way is down
We don’t come alone
We are fire we are stone
We’re the hand that writes and quickly moves away
We’ll know for the first time
If we’re evil or divine
We’re the last in line, yeah
We’re the last in line"
Stand Out Tracks: The Title Track and 'Mystery'
2. Sacred Heart (1985)
"It was starting to rain
On the night that they first decided
It was blinding with snow
On the night that they ran away
They were found in the dark
But they never returned
Just like somebody slammed the door, bang"
Stand Out Tracks: 'Hungry For Heaven' and 'Rock 'n' Roll Children'
- Holy Diver (1983)
You’ve been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what’s becoming of me?
Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes, but you know he’s clean
Oh, don’t you see what I mean?
Gotta get away
Holy Diver, yeah"
Stand Out Tracks: The Title Track and 'Rainbow In The Dark'
