No and don't let delusional metal fans tell you otherwise.
>>
>>61989992

Yes and don't let hipster faggots tell you otherwise.
>>
"Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow" and "Long Live Rock 'n' Roll" are my favorite rock albums.

Listen to it and be the judge of that yourself,don't let other people make opinions for you.
>>
>>61989992
the albums with dio are good, the ones without him range from terrible to meh
>>
>>61990365

Fair enough but I liked Ritchie's work with Deep Purple, but I heard that Rainbow was more heavy. What are his highlights with Rainbow?
>>
>>61989992
Yes. Billy Corgan praised the ever living hell out of them. Even going as far as to basically saying:
Rainbow>Radiohead.
>>
>>61990478
listen to their first 3 albums in order. everything after that is sans-Dio and awful
>>
They were good when Dio was in the band.
>>
>>61991078
This the first three Rainbow albums are good with Rising being quite great.
>>
>>61989992
I love the song 'catch the rainbow' but a while ago I only remembered its name as having 'rainbow' in it. Apparently every third fucking song by Dio has 'rainbow' crammed into the title. Really had a hard time finding that fucking song.

Dunno why I'm telling you this

Since You've Been Gone was my jam when I was 14 <3

Rainbow is fucking excellent. Blackmore is one of my biggest guitar heroes since I was a kid learning guitar

In short: yes.
Rainbow pretty much laid the groundwork for what would eventually become power metal, however it is not excessively ridiculous and indulgent like power metal. Rainbow was the introduction of neoclassical elements into heavy metal, and Ronnie James Dio had the perfect outsized voice, personality, and lyrical style to make it work. Their first three albums are easily their best; Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Rainbow Rising, and Long Live Rock and Roll. Rising is probably the most 'Rainbow' album there is. It featured the band's most popular lineup: (Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, Ronnie James Dio on Vocals, Jimmy Bain [RIP] on Bass, Cozy Powell on drums, and Tony Carey on keyboards) and has what is overwhelmingly their best song - Stargazer. On Stage is also a great live representation of this lineup and features some incredible cuts (Their take on The Yardbirds' Still I'm Sad is fucking incredible)
Otherwise, they have some pretty cool songs if you don't want to go the album route. If anything, definitely check out:
Man On The Silver Mountain
Stargazer
LA Connection
Still I'm Sad (Live - "On Stage" version)

Hope this helps, I hope you enjoy their music as much as I do.
RIP Jimmy Bain.
