The king of metal
09/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I think it's a great record, with many great magical songs, that decribes Dio's way of sending messages out about what goes on in our lives and how the world works. It's a great album because of all the songs on it, that has been taken from every album Dio has made, since he began solo career, and it captures me with the powerful lyrics and use of instruments, not to mension how cleaver and skilled he is at making a record. He is the king of heavy metal. Amen to that."

The Most Powerful Vocalist In Metal History!
Steven Whitehurst | Calumet City, Illinois USA | 08/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is truly great! "Anthology" provides a wide range of Dio to choose from--and none of it disappoints. Ronnie James Dio is nothing less than awesome! When he sings, THE KING HAS SPOKEN!!! His voice is so powerful that it snatches you into the grip of his music. The real gems on this album are "Last In Line," "Holy Diver" and "Rainbow In The Dark." These three songs show Ronnie Dio at his best. This trio of songs deserves to be ranked as among the finest metal songs ever! Also, the contribution of guitarist Vivian Campbell can't be overlooked. His guitar work is magnificent! With the combination of a great vocalist like Ronnie James Dio and a great guitarist like Vivian Campbell how could anything but greatness be achieved. Buy this album today and add a piece of metal royalty to your collection."
