      cwilder, you might be shocked and happy to see, (miracle or not) that I finally gave in to your fan-crowd, on this round

      TDYK is a dead duck disc. Black Rain, though, is an abomination, all round.

      I'm sticking with the devil I loathe less. :tongue: ....TDYK, for me. LOL

        Before telling Tony Iommi his guitar was slightly out of tune, Ronnie James Dio was seven feet tall.

              Why does everyone think that BR is THAT bad? It's not good but at least it has its entertaining moments. TDYK is just a barking and riffs. No songs, no melodies.

                  TDYK for sure!

                  I personally love TDYK and really don't understand all the hate for it. It's like a mixture of all three of the Dio albums when you think about it so I don't understand what the hate is about. Black Rain was a horrible album that was nothing but BLS-Lite and BLS sucks for the most part so yeah.

                  The riffs on TDYK > Riffs on BR by a billion miles. TDYK is a great album while BR is a bad album, simple as that.

                      Let's give credit where it's due. This is the first time Ozzy gets crushed. Between "Dio Sabbath" and Ozzy solo, it was 2-1 before this. Ozzy dropped a photo finish in round 1, he wins what is essentially a tie in round 2, and Sabbath won round 6 but almost by default (Dehumanizer isn't great, but it's better than NMT). What's interesting is that the quality of Dio Sabbath's output stays somewhat consistent over the last 30 years (recognizing that there are only 4 studio albums released in that time period). Perhaps unsurprisingly, Ozzy was like watching a firework go off.

                      "Oh, you can't help that, we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
                      "How do you know I'm mad?"
                      "You must be or you wouldn't have come here."

                        Black Rain isn't that bad, it's actually cool if you use it for background music and just ignore it. I enjoy Civilize the Universe, Lay Your World on me, and Here for You., they are "B" songs but what the hell. Not Going Away, Silver and Black Rain are ok, not total dissasters. The rest of the songs are garbage - the CD collapses from there on.

                        I voted for The Devil You Know. I like the first 8 songs. The last two are marginal but tolerable (Neverwhere and Breaking Into Heaven).

                              TDYK. Easy.

                              5-3 Sabbath, although a few of the contests were quite close.
