quote:This will be unpopular with Sabbath fans but, I think Ozzy's first two solo albums were better than anything he ever did with Black Sabbath AND to commit further Black Sabbath Blasphemy, I also think Sabbath was better with Ronnie James Dio as well - but it's a matter of taste and it is a different sound.
I think Black Sabbath in the 70's is a completly different entity than it was in the 80's, I do like both, however.
Ozzy's vocals completly changed. I think it was Never Say Die or maybe Technical Ecstasy where he opted for a more nasal/whiny delivery that I do not care for. I found his first two, or any of his solo albums for that matter to be dull. I can understand a different personal preference, I just can't condone it.
