I really don't think you'd say his early stuff was "forgettable" man if you listened to more of it. I'm as sick of Crazy Train as the next guy, but his solo stuff, vocal "skill" argument aside, is an encyclopedia of absolutely badass metal.

Absolutely. I mean, I still listen to these songs to this day. And I listen to them a lot. Like, all-the-fucking-time-lot. :lol:

Eh, but how much of that is him and how much of that is the guys he was playing with? I just don't think the guy was that great of a singer, and as a lyricist he was a bit inconsistent - I always thought "Mr Crowley" was embarrassingly bad.

Hey, taste is a strange thing. I can think of a whole army of guys I'd rather listen to, even just within the broader metal genre.

Who cares? The songs are still awesome, and the albums still kick ass. Ozzy's vocal performances fit his music.

^ That makes me sad. :(

EDIT : Oh well, D. You'll always have Kurt Cobain.
:lol: You know, I almost went there just to snipe one of you guys, since I figured it was inevitable.

Anything with Randy Rhoads on it makes me very happy indeed.

Diary is an incredible album, and pretty much the last excellent thing that Ozzy has ever been associated with. After that, it became mediocre albums with frequently good guitar work. Ozzy's world became a circus, and that's not conducive to good music-making.

I whole-heartedly disagree with this! No Rest For the Wicked and No More Tears were awesome albums IMO.
