        Kiss - Alive
        Ozzy - Speak Of The Devil
        Judas Priest - British Steel
        Accept - Restless And Wild
        Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast
        Metallica - Ride The Lightning
        Venom - Black Metal
        Dio - Holy Diver
        Scorpions - Blackout
        Mötley Crüe - Shout At The Devil
        Motorhead - Overkill
        Black Sabbath - Sabotage

        Could've named quite a few more, but all the albums I listed besides a few came out in the early 80's which was the time I started to get into heavy music and develop a real love for it. Kiss Alive was the first album I got at Xmas of 78 but it wasn't until I heard Ozzy's Speak Of The Devil album towards the end of 82 that really sent me down the path of heavy for good.

            Jack, this album is most special to me of all albums, for it's the one that got me into Black Sabbath, I have it on cassette, CD, multiple copies on vinyl, including the English version Talk Of The Devil, I also have the VHS and DVD concert titled by the same name and a cloth tapestry of the album cover.
            "Without Black Sabbath there never would have been an Ozzy, and without Ozzy there never would have been a Black Sabbath"

              1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid (This was purchased on cassette with Heaven and Hell on Side 2)
              2. Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell (See Above)
              3. Black Sabbath - Sabotage (Total Game Changer, not only shaped Teen years but entire life, really)
              4. Motley Crue - Too Fast for Love (Why not Shout at the Devil? Simply: this album was better, more personal and real)
              5. Def Leppard - High N Dry (Why Not Pyromania? Because Pyromania hit before I was an official teen. HND was discovered retroactively)
              6. Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry (Man, remember when these guys seemed like the real thing??? Great album)
              7. Metallica - Master of Puppets (I came a little late to the Metallica party, but found this album first.)
              8. Slayer - Reign In Blood (Really the entire catalogue up to and including South of Heaven (Seasons came a little later))
              9. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (My friend and I spend a lot of time not knowing the words to WASP one summer)
              10. S.O.D. - Speak English or Die (If you were into metal in 1987, you spun this quite a bit. Unlistenable now.)
              11. Ozzy Osbourne - No Rest for the Wicked (Why not the others? Though I was certainly very into them, NRFTW came out right at that magical time)
              12. Motley Crue - Theater of Pain (HUGE, can't describe or justify why this album was so in-the-pocket at that time, and still sounds a bit magical to these ears)

              Honorable Mentions:

              The Mob Rules - Really struck a chord during the D+D years
              Ratt - Out of the cellar (And their self-titled ep)
              Rainbow - All of it with Dio (I certainly enjoyed a few tracks but it didn't fully take hold until my Dio wake-up call circa 2005)
              Why no Dio Solo? See above re: Rainbow

              Dishonorable Mentions:

              GNR - Appetite (The tide of metalheads was turning and people were jumping ship to go Rap and never come back. We lost a lot of good guys, and the soundtrack to that happening was GNR)
              Metallica - AJFA (Same reason)
              Add to that Skid Row's album, Fucking Jackyl, Warrant, Green Jello (yes, it's jello, not jelly) and bloody Enough Z'nuff and all those other posers that released albums at that time.

                          I forgot about that one! I remember the radio (Q107 & CHUM FM) playing the shit out of that album all summer (Paranoid, Iron Man/COTG and The Wizard in particular). Symptom Of The Universe and Never Say Die on Speak of the Devil were what I heard first before the original versions as well.

                            Huge fan of those albums. Those were more of an impact on my pre-teen years, I mean, an impact on all of my life, but not specifically teen years. I didn't discover Pretties for You until my teens and being into movies like Eraserhead and...well..drugs...I fell in love with it.
                            You bought and sold me with your lying words.

                              Very cool OID. I have both vinyl editions as well the SOTU/N.I.B/COTG 12" single, CD & DVD you mention.
                              The album is very close to my heart also. It introduced me to Sabbath as well as got me into metal. There's been quite a few of us on these boards that have mentioned that album had a similar impact on them.
