    * Bark at the Moon
    * Ultimate Sin
    * No Rest for the Wicked
    * No More Tears
    * Ozzmosis (totally underrated album)

    The first two albums were phenomenal, but to suggest that he suddenly lost it is to discount some of the greatest music rounding out the 80's, and in the case of No More Tears & Ozzmosis, into the 90's.

    I listen to Ozzy Ozbourne radio on Pandora several times a week among many other artist.
    But its not the 2019 stuff.
    Early Sabbath all that stuff too comes on Pandora.
    I listened to all that in high school when it came out.
    I actually think Heaven & Hell & Mob Rules were Sabbaths best albums with Ronnie Dio.
    Personal prefrence.
    I saw Dio in Sabbath in Evansville Indiana 1980.
    Sammy Hagar opened.
    It was intense.

    Different bands, dude ... one lead singer was the Prince of Darkness, and the other Dobby the House Elf.

    Don't get me wrong, I've been an Ozzy fan, for a long time. I do not like the business practices of him & his wife. In one way, she saved him, & since then, he's been paying for it. I wouldn't pay to see Ozzy anymore, but, I've seen him in the past, so...

    I agree though, if he can do it & people are willing to pay him, so be it, I have no problem w/ that. It's just too bad, that even the band(s) having to tune down so far, makes them sound bad too. The guitars are missing a lot of tone. Too bad tone isn't in the hands... :)...

    Sabbath is Sabbath.
    We can agree to disagree.

    My cousin is 10 years younger than me, stuck in 1984' & an Alcoholic and a crazy Iron Worker.
    He called me last week wanting to go see Ozzy.
    I said "you saw him in Illinois during the Eclipse at that Back at the Moon concert".
    {which sounded awful}
    "Didn't you get your fill then" ?

    "Oh it was awesome, Zakk Wylde this & Zakk Wylde that".

    Like i said he's stuck in 1984.

    the band w/ Dio, say, that, at the time, they were conflicted. They wanted to call the band Heaven & Hell, but, they didn't have enough material to tour w/o the Sabbath material. The record label insisted that they keep Sabbath.

    Through the years, Iommi had a bunch of different line-ups & wanted to change the name, but, the label insisted that he keep the Sabbath name.

    So, I'm not so solid on the Black Sabbath, being the same, throughout all the changes. The Dio iteration finally changed the name to Heaven & Hell & released a couple albums & toured up until Dio's death...

    I'll agree to disagree. Sabbath w/Ozzy was arguably the personification of metal, whereas Sabbath w/Dio was a Dungeons & Dragons soundtrack. Such polar opposites that I literally consider them two different bands.

    Least Dio could sing.

    This is my favorite Ozzy : Budokan 2002.

    Faith no more drummer & Metallica Bass player were kick ass.

    Ozzy had his day & he left his mark. You have to give him that.

    Absolutely. 100%

    I listen to his music practically every morning lol.

    To be honest i liked Dio's singing voice but never cared for all the Devil stuff.

    My brain picks out guitar & bass lines first, then drums & vocals.
    I never pay attetion to lyrics that much.

    But back in the 60's & 70's Black Sabbath had all the Bible thumpers soiling themselves.

    By the time Dio hit Sabbath there were too many other bands doing good metal for them to have a corner on anything, but in 69 when they first came out nobody had ever heard shit like that before and they had the pocket.

    TOTALLY agree! Spent many Halloweens with friends drinking tasty beer and rum cranking those albums...great memories. You forgot though Down to Earth! "I'm not the kinda person you think I ammmm" ...Dreamer.....I mentioned Perry Mason... His vocals were very expressive all the way up to Down/Earth album...

    Boooo!! Man you're a thorn, battery acid, nails on a chalkboard...grating, teeth gnashing....ugh! At least Dio could sing implying Ozzy cannot?? Wtf is that?? Ozzy from 69' to 2001.... extremely expressive....unique, the sound of his voice...It's not all about vocal range...it's persona.....

    I think both could sing well, but had very different styles. One thing I think they both deserve credit for is how unique they sounded. Instantly identifiable.

    When you listen to Ozzy talk, it shows how amazing his singing is. I mean, you can hardly understand a word he says. I can understand almost everything he sings...

    Yeah, 10-4 man ...Dio was awesome....I just prefer Ozzy more. I love the Beatles too...Ozzy's music sounds allot like it... heavier of course.

    I have a lot of respect for Dio, but outside of Rainbow in the Dark (which i mostly like because of the guitar), I never really got into him.
