    I loved the Vivian Campbell stuff, that was THE lineup!

    But i also enjoy "Dream Evil" with Craig Goldy channeling Blackmore, and
    the underated "Lock up the Wolves" album with Rowan.

    Just like Jape, I'm also a big fan of Lock Up the Wolves (the album).

    Holy Diver kicks - I remember the 1st time I listened to it and then I saw the VHS for the Live in Amsterdam concert (1983).

    Somehow, I didn't feel the same when Last in Line came out. I bought it, but kept listening to HD even more as well as the other stuff Dio released (Rainbow, The Sabs).

    while I don't think Dio's best songs are on LUTW, I do think it's his best album. There's not a track I dislike.

    I thought "The Last in Line" was equal in greatness to "Holy Diver," yet i've met
    many who believe it wasn't as good.

    But i thought LIN was a fantastic follow-up.

    Yeah, LUTW was my last Dio album, and i still think it is stellar.

    Rowan had the high tech chops, yet he balanced it all with really moody, almost
    Iommi sounding riffs.

    I thought he was really good, for someone that young.

    Vivian was BADASS!

    Always loved him, and his aggressive attack.
