I can't decide between MoR or SBS for best album personally. Heaven and Hell is pretty great, though.

Mob Rules title cut...love the stolen Van Halen riff. Oh well, Tony and Eddie are bffs now so it's ok.

I dunno, Ozzy was a p. powerful singer in his prime, even now too. Just listen to War Pigs and tell me he wasn't or isn't as good as Dio.

Headless Cross IS the best Black Sabbath album. Heaven and Hell is 0.1 point behind it though.
Ah, a contrarian. Though Forbidden is not nearly as bad as people say it is. Get A Grip, Can't Get Close Enough, I Won't Cry For You, Guilty As Hell, Rusty Angels, Forbidden and Kiss Of Death are all very good or great songs. That's only 3 out of 10 tracks that are subpar.

I've only listened to Sabbath with Ozzy singing. I can't imagine anyone else doing as well as him so I haven't checked out their other work.
What should I listen to that doesn't have Ozzy?

Blake Brooks

Listen to Heaven and hell and mob rules first, two undeniably great albums even without Ozzy

My only problem with Ozzy is his vocal lines don't stray too far from the guitars rhythm tempo, especially in the older stuff. That being said I do prefer Ozzy era songs more than Dio still.

This is the worst opinion anyone can have. They had better songs in the 80's with other singers who were technically better than Ozzy. That goes for Dio, Hughes and Martin.

Lincoln Flores

Dio Sabbath wasn't bad but it's gotta be Ozzy in Sabbath, Dio should have stuck with Rainbow and his solo stuff.

Julian Ross
Julian Ross

Ozzy fits Sabbath better
Waht kind of faggotry is this? I've heard this a lot but no one can say why. I think it's just because you heard Paranoid or Iron Man first and until you were in your late teens thought Ozzy was the only Black Sabbath vocalist.

Benjamin Russell
Benjamin Russell

I think his voice is just a bit more off kilter and weird, which I think suits early Sabbath. Dio is much more of a "proper" singer and has the kinda big boomy rock voice, which also worked but in a different way.

Isaiah Torres
Isaiah Torres

Have you ever listened to live records of Dio singing pre-Heaven and Hell albums? He is a great singer but those songs sound way better with Ozzy’s high-pitched “crazy” voice

The Writ is unironically one of the best Sabbath songs.

Your fallen phallic god dismembered and gone!
A poison father with his poisonous son, that’s you!
Yeah that's you!

It also proved that Ozzy can write lyrics if he really wants to

Elijah Ortiz

Dehumanizzer is also underrated, even among Dio-Sabbath fans. I actually might put it over Mob Rules.

Leo Cruz

So? Ozzy couldn't pull off Dio's songs if he wanted too.

Caleb Perez
Caleb Perez

Because most Dio-Sabbath fans heard either Heaven and Hell or Mob Rules first so that's the Dio sound they like. Not the Dio of the early 90's that had more industrial doom influences than the heavy Blues stuff.

Gabriel Hughes
Gabriel Hughes

There's something about this album that always bothers me. It has so many great riffs, but it doesnt seem to carry them all the way through like on some of the other albums. A National Acrobat for instance has that killer opening and chorous, but then it changes in the last quarter to that wierd solo. I'm not sure if I'm just expecting something based on having listened to metal that came after it or if they just couldn't figure out how to end the songs. That said still a great album, but I always feel like it just missed the mark.

Brandon Flores

Matthew Stewart

Dio was obviously a more technically capable vocalist than Ozzy but all the Dio albums are painfully generic. It's just shit-kicking rock, that's it. Yeah if I want to grow a balding mullet and swing my dick around then it's great but there's no soul or meaning to it at all.

Logan Morgan
Logan Morgan

Sabbath got to the point where they wanted to put together tracks that were more than just jams. Iommi has stated that they were always self-conscious about the negative reviews that described them as a dumb band, so he kept trying to push into a more progressive direction. That's why you start hearing them change up songs a lot in their later stuff. I think a lot of the times it weakens the songs because they aren't that good at transitions and it always feels so arbitrary, like they just suddenly start playing an entirely different song.

Easton Rogers
Easton Rogers

Headless Cross is fucking based but it's not the best Sabbath album dude. Even though it's the one I listen to more than any other. There's a fair bit of filler on it though.

Angel Moore
Angel Moore

Both. The intro is Dazed, the main riff is Communication.

Ryder Diaz

War Pigs

That's absolutely nothing compared to something like Sabbath Bloody Sabbath or Under the Sun.

Ozzy from 72-76 was fucking unreal.

Michael Russell

Listen to the Dio albums. They sound about as much like Ozzy Sabbath as Solo Ozzy does.

Sebastian Butler

Yes.

Tangent, but you know what's weird? That nobody ever noticed that Bowie lifted Stairway to Heaven for the chorus to Ziggy Stardust.

Lincoln Lewis
Lincoln Lewis

There's a fair bit of filler on it though
Couldn't disagree more. Zero weak songs and most songs are definitely the stronger of their career.

Isaac Perry
Isaac Perry

Zero weak songs on Headless Cross?
How about track #1 for starters?

Adam Adams
Adam Adams

I don't know how in hell you can count that as a song.

Zachary Scott
Zachary Scott

That's a question you should ask to Black Sabbath, not me. It's there either way.
Kill in the Spirit World, Call of the Wild, Black Moon are all filler. Headless Cross and Devil and Daughter are kind of weak. Nightwing is the only absolute classic on the whole album.

Tyler Rogers
Tyler Rogers

That nobody ever noticed that Bowie lifted Stairway to Heaven for the chorus to Ziggy Stardust.
Interestingly enough Life On Mars?, which came out before Led Zeppelin IV, features recorders in the second verse and Stairway to Heaven also has recorders early on in the first verse.

Bowie also thought that Page cast a curse on him in 1975.

Blake Cruz
Blake Cruz

It's a track. There's a difference between a track and a song.
Kill in the Spirit World, Call of the Wild, Black Moon are all filler
Yeah right. The fact that if you have some kind of ear for music you can hum those choruses from memory proves otherwise.
Headless Cross and Devil and Daughter are kind of weak
Now I know you're an complete idiot. Those two are the best songs on the album.

Kevin Powell

Jonathan Cooper

This is a big part of why Technical Ecstasy catches shit but I think that album is awesome. Not even close to their best album of course, but Dirty Woman is absolutely one of their best songs for how operatic it is.

Ryder Watson

Iommi has stated that they were always self-conscious about the negative reviews that described them as a dumb band, so he kept trying to push into a more progressive direction
Yeah, because moving towards prog was a good way to get props from critics in the 70s. Actually, Christgau's review of We Sold Our Souls suggests that he preferred the more accessible sound on the first three albums.

Mason James
Mason James

Lester Bangs started liking them with Vol 4., so you can't please everyone.

Bentley Nelson
Bentley Nelson

Are you trying to argue with me or Iommi? I'm just telling you how it was. Whether or not their approach was a mistake is debatable but that's certainly what they were trying to do. It isn't a coincidence that that user brought up this point while commenting on SBS, the album fucking Rick Wakeman plays on. They were well-aware of what the "deeper" bands were doing at the time and it was a direction they tried experimenting towards.
