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

THE VERY BEAST OF DIO VOL. 2 got some GREAT GREAT stuff from Ronnie James Dio and his amazing band!!!!!!
Rio Fluzão
While more cuts from these four great LPs could have been included Niji decided to fill out the compilation with some hard-to-find tracks.
A Customer
Spent some time with it over the last week, and I have to say I ended up enjoying this collection a lot.

Ronnie James Dio has been gone just about two and a half years now. His last proper full album of material was the Heaven & Hell Black Sabbath album, "The Devil You Know" in 2009. The last proper studio album of Dio Band material was 2004′s "Master of the Moon". In that time, we've had several releases with Ronnie on them. Most of them when he was alive, some were not. Here's a rundown of Dio output since 2004...

* Master of the Moon (STUDIO ALBUM) - 2004, Dio
* Evil or Divine (Live Album) - 2005, Dio
* Holy Diver Live (Live Album) - 2006, Dio
* The Dio Years (Compilation w/ new Studio Tracks) - 2007, Black Sabbath
* Live At Hammersmith Odeon (Live Album) - 2007, Black Sabbath
* Live From Radio City Music Hall (Live Album) - 2007, Heaven & Hell/Black Sabbath
* The Rules of Hell (Compilation Box Set) - 2008, Black Sabbath
* The Devil You Know (STUDIO ALBUM) - 2009, Heaven & Hell/Black Sabbath
* Live at Donington UK 1983 & 1987 (Live Album) - 2010, Dio
* Neon Nights: 30 Years of Heaven & Hell - Live at Wacken (Live Album) - 2010, Heaven & Hell/Black Sabbath
* Ronnie James Dio Story: Mightier Than the Sword (Compilation) - 2011, Dio
* And Before Elf...There Were Elves (Compilation) - 2011, Elf/The Elves

So in the last 8 years, we've had two studio albums, six live albums, and four compilations (although one of these had three new studio tracks). So when I heard in the summer of 2012 we were getting yet another compilation, I groaned. I mean honestly, did we really need another one of these? I would promote it on the site like I promoted everything else, but I wasn't envisioning getting too terribly excited about it.

Since the untimely passing of the great Ronnie James Dio, we have seen numerous releases and re-issues of some of his classic albums from his early beginnings, to the Sabbath years, and his amazing solo career. Of all those releases, this album, the Very Beast of Dio Vol. 2 has been the most vital purchase for me personally. For starters, it contains the last song Ronnie sang in 2010 for David Feinstein's project, 'Metal Will Never Die'. Also included is the song 'Electra', which was supposed to be on Magica II and the Japanese bonus track for Master of the Moon, 'Prisoner of Paradise'. The other reason, is that I had not heard many of Dio's later offerings, so this was the perfect starting place for me. All the tracks are solid and can proudly stand up to Dio's classic canon. 'This Is Your Life' is quite powerful, just Dio and piano with some outstanding, empowering lyrics. If your a newer or fan of Dio's more popular works or maybe just missed the boat like I did on the later stuff, you should branch out and give this album a shot, you will not regret it in the least, a great companion to 'The Very Best of' or 'Anthology'. Long live rock 'n' roll and long live Ronnie Jame Dio!

This is an outstanding collection of Dio's last 4 albums (Angry Machines, Magica, Killing the Dragon, and Master of the Moon) plus 3 excellent bonus tracks. I'm a huge Dio fan, and like all 10 of his solo albums, but it's nice to have his latter era greatest hits all on one disc. Throw this and "Beast of Vol.1" in the car and it's a great way to jam out to some Dio.
There are some songs I would have liked to have seen on here that aren't, but that's always going to be the case with greatest hits albums from artists that have so many awesome songs. All in all, this is a very good album, and when you throw in "Electra" and the hard hitting "Metal Will Never Die," this album is well worth the price of admission. I highly recommend it!

While a proper 2 disc set of his Reprise albums from "Holy Diver" through "Strange Highways" is definitely called for (Rhino issued the one disc 16-track "The Very Beast Of") in the meantime Niji Entertainment made a smart business decision to do it's own compilation of the Dio albums from "Angry Machines" through "Master Of The Moon" and called it "The Very Beast Of, Vol. 2". The four studio albums and 1 live album released during this period received less distribution than the Reprise years so they are not and were not as easy to find as the major label period. In terms of quality I feel they hold up equally as well. In my opinion Dio never made even a mediocre album. Even the critically-lambasted "Angry Machines" is great and needs to be revisited. Only two choice cuts are found here ("Black" & "This Is Your Life"), while a third, "Hunter Of The Heart", is a the live version from "Inferno: The Last In Live". These are the best songs from the album but there's still great tracks to be found on that LP. The next three Dio studio LPs get represented thusly, "Magica" (4 tracks), "Killing The Dragon" (4 tracks) and "Master Of The Moon" (3 tracks) and, again, they were pretty much the best choices (the title cut to "Master Of The Moon" is a gem that didn't fit I guess). While more cuts from these four great LPs could have been included Niji decided to fill out the compilation with some hard-to-find tracks. This is where they sort of dropped the ball.Read more ›
