    I think Down To Earth was an excellent album even though I'm not a fan of Graham Bonnet and his strained screaming I like blusier singers I think Stone Cold as I mentioned was Rainbow's best post Dio song it's commercially good has great hooks and Blackmore's solo's are some of his best ever... Rainbow had attained what Ritchie was after Foreigner like sound commercially acceptable for FM radio something Dio Rainbow never was ... for some Reason Ronnie shies away from commercial success ... which is why Blackmore sacked him imo...

    A friend of mine named his cat Cymbaline after an old Pink Floyd song of the same name.

    But to answer the question posed originally...

    Probably Death Alley Driver.

    Great song, Graham Bonnet had a lot of energy, it's the only non Dio/Rainbow album that gets a regular spin here and there, I have the entire Rainbow catalog, including the Ronnie Romero material.

    Yeah I don’t hate it, something about Joe Lynn Turner’s voice, that turns me off.

    Graham Bonnet was a powerhouse of a singer full of energy, and I also like Doogie White, I think he was the best post Dio fit for the band, I don’t know why Ritchie didn’t pick him back up for the Rainbow stint, instead of the Romero guy.

    Happy New Year to you Wicked.

    Another non Dio favorite by a singer who I think suited the band better than Joe, is Black Masquerade and Hall Of The Mountain King

    The best songs from the post-Dio Rainbow albums, links included...

    From "Down To Earth"...
    - Eyes Of The World
    - Since You Been Gone
    - Danger Zone

    From "Difficult To Cure"...
    - I Surrender
    - Magic
    - Can't Happen Here

    From "Straight Between The Eyes"...
    - Stone Cold
    - Tearin' Out My Heart
    - Eyes Fire

    From "Bent Out Of Shape"...
    - Can't Let You Go
    - Desperate Heart
    - Street Of Dreams

    ...and from the often overlooked "Stranger In Us All"...
    - Wolf To The Moon
    - Ariel
    - Black Masquerade

    The choice of a single #1 song from this lot is troublesome, a question maybe never thoroughly answered.

    I love lost in Hollywood and street of dreams is a great pop song.

    I think my favorite post-dio album would be down to earth.
