Too many bands decline from excellence with a steady flow of greatest hits compialtions. Megadeth, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Dio. But while often these compilations are boring, lacking new material and poorly made, Dio's "The Collection" is one of the few truly great exceptions.

Like any good Dio comp, the early hits Holy Diver and Rainbow in the Dark start off the album, with the excellent Don't Talk To Strangers thrown in between them. There are several hard to find live recordings on this album, which makes it something worth looking for if you're a collector. The true gem of these is the live version of The Last In Line.

The songs are broken up so that they don't become boring, and the live tracks are well recorded. Throughout the album, you really feel like you're at a Ronnie James Dio show in the mid-eighties, singing along to every line of Dream Evil and throwing the horns.

Dio was a very good singer for Black Sabbath, and his current work in Heaven and Hell is also quite noteworthy. This collection helps you to get a feel for his solo career and lets you jump right into the covnersation. Pick up "The Collection" is you want the only good Dio comp.
