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: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.
Who cares? The songs are still awesome, and the albums still kick ass. Ozzy's vocal performances fit his music.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.
You listen to Nirvana. :fawk: :wub: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.
I whole-heartedly disagree with this! No Rest For the Wicked and No More Tears were awesome albums IMO.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.
