  • Is Megalomania The Best Ozzy Era Song?

    I was listening to this today.. and I'm starting to think so. It's just so epic and powerful and it encompasses everything that a perfect Sabbath song should be, IMO.

            Maybe not my top but it is top 10 for sure and damn close. It does have everything a Sabbath song should have and man Ozzy does sound amazing.

                Even shorter answer ... No.

                I do like the song a lot, but it's not the best. Top 5 no. Top 10 certainly.

                  Possibly. I really like Symptom Of The Universe from that album too.

                    It's close, I like Sabbath Bloody Sabbath the best though.

                      I do like the song a lot, but I think the best is War Pigs, regardless of it being played to death.

                        This song, along with The Writ, is Ozzy's vocal peek. He never sounded the same.

                          I actually think his vocal peak is The Thrill Of It All, which of course is off of Sabotage as well. That whole record is an amazing vocal performance.

                            Top 5! At one stage it was my favourite, I love the tempo change half way through! And I love the lead brake in the middle and the repeat that is put on the voice leading into the first two verses.. And the doubled vioce in the seconbd half of the song during the chorus.. All in all it is a VERY epic song!!!

                              Definitely one of their best. Although there are many Sabbath songs for me that get that title.
