Your top five greatest albums ever made! | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site

Your top five greatest albums ever made!

I am curious to know your favorite top 5 picks for greatest album's of all time.

<strong>RULES ARE AS FOLLOWS:</strong>

It can be any jondra of your choice, but it must only consist of albums you consider remarkable from beginning to end, not an album that you consider having only a few hits, and the rest is mediocre at best, in other words it must measure up to a Diary, or a Dark Side of the Moon, sorry the partridge family’s greatest hits isn’t what I am looking for here.

lmao

The only other thing I ask is that these albums you pick must have had a profound effect on you, & have changed your look at how music should be made, other than that have fun!

<strong>My top five as of today are as follows:</strong>

<ol>
<li>Master of Puppets - Metallica</li>
<li>Blizzard of Ozz - Ozzy Osbourne </li>
<li>2112 - Rush </li>
<li>The Wall - Pink Floyd</li>
<li>Revolver - The Beatles</li>
</ol>

Note these are not in any piticular order, I love them all!

<em>Recognize this as a holy gift and

<strong>-Maynard James Keenan</strong>

You have that right. God I loved him 33 years ago, and I love him today just as much. I miss his fringe shirts :o(. Sharon is quoted often saying they are "stupid." I hope that didn't stop him from wearing them. Now it's black fingernails (boo) and alway the goth look. I don't mind it sometimes, but I miss that part of him that was just Ozzy without all the doom $hit too.

No doubt. What I love about Ozzy is not only is he an artist, but hes also an entertainer. An artist is someone who can create great music, but can they entertain you with it? Ozzy can. He does it all. Thanks for the kind words.

gimpnoid ,,the ledgend grows LOL

this is all speculation. surmising. conjecture. guesswork. hypothesis. surely. why, if we were to look closely at Andy, for reals...the truth might reveal itself to be altogether some other thing. it'd be in the slant of his eyebrows. in the wrinkles around his mouth. the lay of his nostrils. the lines on his forehead. all perhaps adding up to a tension of an altogether different sort. hmmm...we'll have to look very closely our next call, his webcam might reveal much that is left unknown to us at present.

yeah fuk retard bosses they suk

--
gimpnoid ,,the ledgend grows LOL

i guess...

---
must be that boss of his, laying into him again. makes the man feel like a worm, poor chap. you can almost visibly see him grow dagger teeth and switchblade claws. and the eyes? the eyes...mirror to the soul? ah yes, makes you shiver to look into them. hair stuck up in disorderly array around his head...why, the man is a sight to see indeed.

of course he is ,,he had a month off,,so its catch up,,hey mate

--
gimpnoid ,,the ledgend grows LOL

Weird Al" Yankovic huh, now thats different, but it works for me!

Here is a couple that I forgot to mention, Kiss Alive One, & Frampton Comes alive. By far two of the best live albums during the 70's, & changed how allot of people perceived live albums in general....

now goat ALIVE that was the cd that the almighty KISS used recorded concert noise and dubbed w/ the studio trax to make it sound live. so thats kind of a sham!

1. Alice in Chains-DIRT
2. MetallicA-RIDE THE LIGHTNING
3. BLS-1919 Eternal

Bro no sham exactly, Alive was indeed a live show, but however you are correct that they indeed added additional audience noise to the album, not to put one over on the fans, but to add more "excitement and realism" to the show, or so the band says anyway.

I tend to believe them considering that when they recorded Alive 1 it was before they actually broke through and did the huge arena shows that they later became renowned for, so I am sure that adding the extra crowd noise was a big help to the sound, & the sell ability of that album.

just in case you also didn't know, that album achieved quadruple platinum status, and got they got their first top 40 single, a live version of "Rock And Roll All Nite." It was the first version of "Rock and Roll All Nite" with a actual guitar solo in it, and as we all know the Alive 1 recording of "Rock and Roll All Nite" has come to represent the definitive version of that song; totally eliminating the studio original for all time....

But hey I wouldn't put much past Kiss these days, or past days. Its not like I hold them up to not actually pulling a s***y like that, they have to be the biggest corporate sellouts of all time!

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

1. Black Sabbath-Black Sabbath
2. Black Sabbath-Paranoid
3. Ozzy Osbourne-Blizzard of OZ
4. Ozzy Osbourne-Black Rain
5. Pink Floyd-The Wall

hey sellouts or not i love KISS! but this is what i saw on vh1 about greatest albums live and saw gene and paul talking about it, and heres the story on wiki. so im just sayin kind of a rip off.

According to Dale Sherman's book Black Diamond and Goldmine magazine, in the early 1990s, Eddie Kramer stated there were a few overdubs to correct the most obvious mistakes: strings breaking or off-key notes, for instance. However, in recent years, Kramer has stated that the only original live recording on the album is Ace Frehley's guitar. In a recent televised interview, he also stated the only original live recording on the album is Peter Criss's drums. Also to add to this fact is, on the recent VH1 special of the story of Kiss that aired in the last few years, the band members themselves make it more known, that the album was severely doctored in the studio, and also various musicians (ie: Fred Durst for one) comment on the album in this special, revealing how disappointed they were in finding out their heroes doctored the supposed "live" album in the studio.

Well doctored or not my brother, it definitely made a impact on the music world, and it along with Frampton comes alive are considered to be the best live albums of the 70's, oh and lets also not forget 1977's "The Alice Cooper Show"!

Plus who is to say what Eddie Kramer says is the law/whole truth?? I would like to see his face when he states all this about the mixing of alive 1, that way I could maybe tell if he was on the up, & up.

Oh & I love them as well bro, its the big goofy ass kid in me that just cant say no. Plus Gene was the guy that inspired my dream of wanting to become a rock star, he was, & still is one of my biggest heroes of all time, gotta love the demon!

In fact I have the dvd family jewels back at the house I got from netflix!

lmao!

Ok, ok I am indeed a fan boy, I wont even try to deny it!
