Post The Dio Polls-Revisited Reply with quote
I am revisiting some of the old Polls from DIO forum, this was a poll by Ehom.
The question was Which album would You choose, If you only where allowed to choose just one of them?


I voted in the poll for the first cd, but the votes all went for the Rainbow ''rising'', the first cd, got the lowest votes Shocked

I voted for LLRNR, just my fav of the three, seems to be a more well rounded album, imo.

One of the hardest polls in Dio, I went for first one becoz of Temple of the King and Catch the rainbow but if I think about it for too long, I go for Rising. Laughing

The Dio Polls-Revisited
This was poll made by Stained Class
The question was...What is your favourite Dio Live Album?


The votes went for Live Evil, but the Hammersmith cd had not be released yet.
I can't remember what I voted for...not a great fan of Holy Diver Live.

I really like Intermission, I know it was played around with and isn't a full show but I love it!

There must be loads of good DIO stuff live just waiting for someone to mix them on to cd.

Yup you would think they recorded the whole show which Intermission is taken from.......they could easily release that with the original line up without the Goldy overdubs etc.

I would live to hear an entire show including drum/guitar/keyboard solo's and all the banter etc between songs. I still struggle to know what is stopping them releasing the Superrock DVD which has been promised for such a long time.

I could get all this stuff on bootleg but I prefer not to.

I always loved Long Live R and R. From the start to Rainbow Eyes, it gets my vote. His vocals on Rainbow Eyes showed me at an early his vocal strength and range.

Blackmore's playing is very strong, too.

I actually saw somewhere there are plans for a release of some Dio live material next year.. But I don't know from when and where....

And there is also some unreleased shows with Rainbow from the '76 tour in Japan waiting to be released sometimes in the future...

The Dio Polls-Revisited
This was poll made by FindTheSacredHeart
The question was...Dream Evil vs. Killing the Dragon


I said about this one....
Quote:
Easy this one...Dream Evil is better
Now I better word this carefully....
I have seen Doug play 4 times now....and he is a great guitar player...but the reason I don't like Killing the Dragon...is really down to the sound...its very light...the tempo is there and the songs are great...but I just wish the guitar had a more heavier sound.

That one is tough, I like bits of Each, but am not in love with either.

Its not a bad album, but was a tough sell after the first 3 albums which to me will always be the best. However, I Could Have Been a Dreamer was on Dream Evil, and thats enough to tip the scale in the albums favor. I do however think Killing the Dragon was a return to the original sound of the band.

Yeah...I get your point about returning to the original sound, I think another month or so in the studio and Killing the Dragon could have been the best DIO cd ever Shocked
Its so close to being out of this world, its also standing the test of time, I like it more now than when it first came out Embarassed Laughing
