Favorite Sabbath albums vote game.... | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site

Favorite Sabbath albums vote game....

Ok, I am going with Outlaw & OzzyJohns suggestion that we should have a best album voting game going on here as well, so here it is folks, and yes its the entire library, vote for the post Sabbath as well as the Osbourne years if you would please, and if you don't know the later albums material then vote for what you do know. All I ask is vote sincerely, and feel free to express your reasons as to why you casted your vote as you did, I feel it makes for good conversation, or so I think anyway....

The rules are the same as all the previous games we have participated in and the rules are posted below. So without any further adieu, here it is my people, let’s get to rockin it on up here shall we!

<strong><em>RULES</em></strong>

<em>Each time you post you subtract 2 points from one album and add 1 point to another. Each album starts out with 10 points, when an album reaches 0 it is eliminated. You can add/subtract points at a maximum of once per day. When you add/subtract a point please copy the album list and points into your post and make the necessary additions and subtractions to those points. </em>

and f***in whoa, Tyr is THE BEST TM album. I can understand if you had voted for Born Again or Forbidden cause they have some weird mixing things going on that mask the good songs, but Tyr is a gem.

Not I my people, to not like or have a love for Paranoid is like not liking heavy music at all, according to my ears anyway. Not liking, or respecting the album Paranoid is practically unheard of really. I just can’t imagine any real hardcore music fan not simply loving this album, it’s a pinnacle album man, you can’t get anymore heavy metal than this!

I mean how do you not show your respect, granite its not Black Sabbaths first album, but none the less it’s a huge part of the blue print on how heavy music should be made. Why do you think we still gather and celebrate the man known as Ozzy Osbourne, because he and the guys of Sabbath became the band, the sound that all artists that came after that attempted to do heavy music compared their own s*** up to, other than Sabbath who else would be the number one group that gets this much admiration, and respect, maybe the Beatles? No they aren’t even metal, so who else do you see being the forefathers of what we all consider metal??

Black Sabbath that’s who! And to not give props for songs such as war pigs, hand of doom, electric funeral, and finally the most popular two hard rock songs maybe in the entire history of hard ass rock n roll, PARANOID & IRON MAN!

Anyway I have said enough, to say anymore just make me sound like a raving lunatic, but damn, of all albums of Sabbaths to under play, paranoid isn’t the one to be criticizing, or s***ting on, so I think anyway!

Peace my peeps!

Sometimes for me that law holds up OJ, but not always, and with the later incarnations of sabbath it left me feeling more than a little cold. So I hear what your saying OJ, and I give you props for seeing the beauty in that post Ozzy material, but as much as I respect ya, and your thoughts, for me I just cant see it the same way bro, I wish I could, I really do, but it cant be done.....

But hey give me props Ive at least tried, thats more than what most do, consciously or not....

I hear ya bro, I understand your love for Paranoid, after all its a pinnacle album in the history of rock, and set the standard for all rock bands that followed after. As I said its a tough call. However in order to be completely honest I have to go with Masters as far as what I tend to listen to the most of out of the sabbath library, these days anyway. Lets just say if I was to be stranded on a desert island and I could only have one for all time, it would be a hard choice to make, but I suspect in the end as with now, I would have to go with masters.

Sorry my brother! lol

LMAO at Outlaw, I hear ya bro I look at it in the same light an all, I am not as hardcore about the Dio stuff as you, in all honesty it was really good music for the time, in fact it lives up to being as good, if not better than allot of the s*** they wanna call music these days, for example you have panic at the disco, or Heaven and Hell to listen to, I think the choice is an easy one to make there don't you bro, lol..
