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>

There is some validity in that statement OJ, I agree with that to a degree, but I also agree with outlaws analogy that it only takes 30 seconds or more of most post sabbath to determine that its not as good, or of the same standard as sabbath with Ozzy. Usually, not always of course, I can usually determine whether I will, or the general populous will accept or grab onto a certain artist, call it a gift, call it whatever, but usually I can always pick the winners, the bands that will not just end up being a splash in the pan, one hit wonders and then never heard of again. So with me and the post sabbath material I could listen to it religiously for days, and still walk away with pretty much the same opinion, and note I say opinion that most post sabbath is just mediocre in comparison to the original sabbath with Ozzy.

Like you I have listened to it before dropping the final hammer, but thats just the way I am wired, I just indulge myself when it comes to music, I digest it until its forever ingrained into my heart & brain.

Anyway in the interest of not sounding redundant, I have said this many, many times before. So I am not bagging on you for liking the post sabbath years. In fact thats great that some people get actual enjoyment from Iommi's later work, but for me Iommi's most triumphant moment was the years he spent with Ozzy and the original line up of sabbath, and as you have seen & heard I am far from alone in the position I hold.

Peace

Ole Doom loves his Masters, lol!

As do I, man picking between these two albums is like trying to decide which child's hand you let go in order to save the other one from falling to its death, well maybe not that hard, but damn close damn it!

lol!

Hey outlaw have you ever listened to all of Born Again, its IMO one of the best sabbath albums that didn't feature Ozzy, either way let me know what you think of it, I know its not Ozzy, but whats your thoughts??
