AllMusic Review by

One of the most universally respected heavy metal vocalists in the world, Ronnie James Dio's career, which included stints with Rainbow and Black Sabbath, among others, spanned over 50 years. Mercury's Singles Box Set may only cover a single decade (1983-1993), but what a ten-year run it was, offering up a slew of genre standards like "Holy Diver," "The Last in Line," "Rainbow in the Dark," "We Rock," "Stand Up and Shout," "Rock 'n' Roll Children," and "All the Fools Sailed Away," all of which make an appearance on this 14-disc, 48-track collection culled from Dio's tenure with Vertigo/Universal. Each of the single sleeves has been re-created to replicate the original releases, with a 15th disc/DVD relegated to housing the corresponding music videos, 12 to be exact. The box set also includes a 30-page booklet stocked with liner notes and photos.
