    Interesting thread. When I first heard Live Evil in late 1984, I also felt that Ronnie's voice didn't suit the original lineup's material very well. To my ears, the most glaring examples from that...

    Since we're discussing ballads during Ozzy's solo career, personally, I would add Tonight and You're No Different to this list. :)


    From the poll I like the first four, but voted for So Tired....

    Fairly or unfairly nolan, what Iommi "intended" with Seventh Star and what actually happened are vastly different. Just saying. :smirk:

    4. Master Of Reality for its embossed lettering and most memorable band logo. There's a reason why it's still used on merchandise today.

  5. Trunk's top 20 Black Sabbath songs

    Appropriately, on 10/31/19 Trunk ranked his top 20 Black Sabbath songs of all-time. Here they are:


    20. Over and Over

    19. Warning

    18. Never Say Die

    17. Sweetleaf

    I'd say Children Of The Sea. :horns:

    Truth be told, it took several years for Children Of The Grave to grow on me. Cool tune though! :smirk:

    Objectively and personally, I give Heaven And Hell the nod. :grin:...:smirk:

    Yes, the first album was originally released in the UK on 2/13/70. It didn't arrive in the States until June, and eventually hit the Billboard charts on 8/29/70.

    I'm also partial to the first...
  10. I agree. :frown:

    I agree. :frown:
  11. BINGO! :cool:

    BINGO! :cool:

    I can understand your viewpoint on this W_t_B. Regarding Ronnie's return to Sabbath in 1992---- to be fair---- I would add though that Tony and Geezer weren't exactly setting the rock world on fire...

    Ozzy should've called it a day as a solo artist the minute he rejoined Black Sabbath. Just saying. :smirk:...:frown:

    From Heaven And Hell:

    Die Young (Still Ronnie's finest moment with Black Sabbath, in my opinion. I would also say it's in my top 3 Sabbath songs of all time. Quintessential indeed!)

    Lonely Is...

    Fair enough, nothing wrong with disagreeing. I'll just add that $haron Osbourne is NOT someone I would call a woman of "principle". Just saying. Thanks for responding. :)

    I strongly disagree Jeff. Perception is everything in the music business. To their credit Tony, Geezer, and Bill saw the bigger picture and accepted this honor graciously. Ozzy doesn't and shouldn't...

    If there's one thing that Ronnie got wrong in the 80s, it was his "vision" for the Dio videos. Frankly, they make me cringe. :doh:

    That said, I guess I'd take the videos over a hologram to keep...

    Agreed led. The planets definitely aligned artistically for both Black Sabbath and Ozzy in 1980-81, in spite of the petty bickering between both camps in the press. :frown:
  19. No, just the opposite. When I first heard Heaven...

    No, just the opposite. When I first heard Heaven And Hell in 1986 I remember being amazed by the quality of the music. That said, I certainly enjoyed the first three Dio albums (and the live shows)...

    This is indeed the most interesting story of the Martin years. :)

    If memory serves, the FIRST time I read about this was in Gary Sharpe-Young's (2003) Sabbath biography Never Say Die. Very...

    I prefer The Devil You Know over 13 by a slight margin. Ultimately, the best material on the former is stronger than the best of the latter, to my ears.

    I agree with W_T_B regarding Fear, easily...

    Good stuff. I'll give it 3.5 out of five stars. I played this today for the first time in several years.

    Frankly, I don't like the digipak format at all!! I would've preferred a standard jewel...

    Overall, I believe that Ronnie's most significant work (artistically speaking) was created with Black Sabbath. For the record, he (and Vinny) should've been inducted alongside the original lineup in...
