Biography

The grand wizard of classic rock. A poet of hope for the downtrodden. The single most important vocal technician in the history of heavy metal. All of these accolades have been garlanded upon the royal roar known as Ronnie James Dio.

He was born on July 10, 1942 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and raised in upstate New York and once said that he would have preferred playing for the ... Read more in Amazon's Dio Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With the emergence of a new generation of heavy bands spearhead by Korn, Slipknot, and that lot in the 1990s, few expected to ever hear again from Ronnie James Dio. Yet he and his band have soldiered on defiantly. Magica is all big hair, big guitars, old-school metal. A concept album inspired by the Book of Magica, this is good-and-evil, swords-and-sorcery stuff, the musical equivalent of a game of Dungeons & Dragons--and likely to share the same fans. With its guitar solos, stadium anthems, and lyrics about wizards and demons, Magica feels dated, but promises a good time for a certain segment of heavy-music fans. --Robert Burrow

Customer Reviews

This is one of Dio's best albums.
Mindcrime
This album has a very interesting concept, and the music is of high quality.

Ronnie James Dio sings as good as on Holy Diver, maybe even better.

The King of Metal returns with the best Dio album in years! However, this is a CD that grows on you, no fast stuff here, the songs are more in the "Heaven and Hell", "Holy Diver", "Children Of The Sea", "Shame On The Night" style. I must admit I hated the interludes between the tracks (as this is a concept album), but now that Ive listened to it a few more times, I love this whole CD! Standout tracks include "Feverdreams", "Feed My Head", "Eriel", and "As Long As Its Not About Love". All diehard Diomaniacs should get this CD, as well as the more casual Dio fan. However dont expect "Stand Up And Shout", "We Rock", type songs. Ronnie, Craig, Jimmy and Simon have NEVER SOUNDED BETTER! Excellent keyboards by Ronnie and Craig. No fifth star due to the fact that the song tempo's are basically the same, and although Craig sounds great, to be honest-he's no Vivian Campbell as far as soloing goes, but these are the best rythms since "Holy Diver". I give it 41/2 stars. GET THIS CD!

Man, I get sick of reading review after review of people sitting and comparing this disc to previous material. Why would anybody want an album that sounds like Holy Diver or Strange Highways? Granted those are both awesome discs, but I see no point in going on and on about how this cd should sounds like either "new" or "old" Dio. The way I see this album, Dio is giving fans something they want and deserve, a fresh sounding cd. It doesn't sound like anything I've heard Dio do before. Magica is original and innovative sounding, and awesome too! This disc leaves cool riffs and melodies burned permanently into the listeners skull (Fever Dreams, Feed My Head), it has eerie and atmospheric themes, (Eriel, Lord Of The Last Day, old school medieval riffage, (Losing My Insanity), in-your-face concert rockers as only Dio can deliver, (Challis) and even soft emotional parts, (As Long As It's Not About Love). This is my favourite Dio album, no matter how many times I hear it I keep coming back to it. I think its going to be a classic.

I know I already reviewed this, but I'd like to add an addendum. I just saw DIO LIVE in Phoenix, and they played the entire Magica album, with the exception of Turn To Stone, and of course the 18min story thing. It was GREAT! Although it was new material, the crowd ate it up, proving that it is a fantastic album. I gotta say that RJD sings these songs LIVE 100% BETTER than on the record, believe it or NOT! "As long as it's not about Love" was phenomanal. The rest of the concert was just as good, they pulled out many deep album cuts from his entire catalog. Here's the setlist.....
SUNSET SUPERMAN, INVISIBLE, ONE NIGHT IN THE CITY, ALL THE FOOLS SAILED AWAY, GYPSY, DRUM SOLO, STAND UP AND SHOUT, MAGICA, HOLY DIVER, RAINBOW IN THE DARK, LAST IN LINE, MAN ON THE SILVER MTN/LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLL. MOB RULES
I think that's all of them. If he's coming to your town, get a ticket, and get there early. You won't be disappointed!

Few men can claim as much prestige in the Heavy Metal scene as can Ronnie James Dio. The man invented the horns, for goodness sakes and probably has the most impressive solo career of any Metal musician. The first three albums, "Holy Diver," "The Last In Line," and "Sacred Heart" are essential for fans of good ol' Heavy Metal and some might even include "Dream Evil" on that list as well. After those records, however, DIO hit what you might call a slump, releasing a string of unpopular and often off-written records. Luckily, 2000's "Magica" brings back the glory days of DIO with an added touch of storytelling and experimentation.

That's right, "Magica" is indeed a concept album. I won't take the time to explain the concept, since that's basically what DIO does on track 14, "Magica Story," which is 15+ minutes of spoken word storytelling from Uncle Ronnie. It's an interesting way to end the album, but skip-worthy all but the first time you hear it. You don't even really need to listen to it that time, either, as it comes in printed form with the liner notes. It's not a terribly original story, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Kicking things off is "Discovery," which is basically a mechanized spoken word that introduces the album, leading right into the main "Magica Theme," a nice instrumental number that reminds me a bit of PINK FLOYD. Right there are two things the reoccur pretty regularly throughout the album: robot voices and PINK FLOYD influence. The former makes it so that there is no way to listen to "Magica" as anything but as a concept album and the latter, along with DIO's brand of plodding Heavy Metal, makes it definitely enjoyable either way!

Incredible, outstanding an amazing album. Its great Jimmy Bain is back, the best bass pick player ever aside from Dave Ellefson from Megadeth. Craig Goldy is so underated, hes such an outstanding guitarist, crunchin guitar hear, with the rythm and spectacular solos. Back in great form like he was in Dream Evil. Simon Wright awesome drummer only a few miles down from Vinny but great just the same, he does awesome. Dio as always so spectacular with his vocals, this isnt childish at all, very neat actually, sure the alien voice seems funny but keep listening to it and ull think its cool it fits really well.
Discovery-cool intro
Magica Theme-isnt this beautiful?
Lord of the last day-awesome creepy, great lyrics and solo.
Fever Dreams-Great tune, the chorus is spectacular.
Turn to stone-Awesome opening with the guitar solo, creepy tune.
Feed my Head-all 3 of these songs follow together so cool like, the mid part of this song is incredible,excellent chorus again.
Friell-Awesome keyboards and symphonies, awesome solo at the end.
Challis-metal classic, awesome chorus again, dynamite solo,awesome, very origianl lyrics.
As long as its not abt luv-one of the most beautiful songs ever, just listen to it, its incredible.
Losing my Insanity-spectacular opening like medieval folklore music, and how they get down is awesome.
Otherworld-Great bass here,good lyrics,rocking slower song.
Magica Reprise-dynamite,lyrics are spectacular,incredibly true.
Lord of the Last day-Awesome closing.
Magica Story-incredible to listen too, very magical indeed.
Album is awesome, heavy to me, they might add a few more symphony sounds in here but big deal it sounds like the old fashioned dio, get it its so incredible. Magica is spectacular, God Bless u Dio and the rest of the band,u did amazing.
