1
Blizzard Of Ozz
ozzy, s best album to date not saying the other albums are bad the other are great but this album was pure genius with soem of his biggest huts, mr crowley, crazy train and I don't know but the album is one of my fave albums around with the guitar wizard randy rhaods this album proves that ozzy osbourne and randy rhoads were the music group of the 80's RIP randy rhoads
So many Great songs in this album. Paranoid comes in as a close second, but this is Ozzy at his best! Although, I did think Revelation was a really weird song. laugh out loud
There's no weak tracks, and that's super amazing considering that Ozzy was going through a really rough time after being fired from Sabbath. This album truly is a masterpiece.

2Paranoid
This album is pretty much Black Sabbath's greatest hits and it's one of the most influential albums for heavy metal if not the most influential.

Songs like War Pigs, Iron Man and Paranoid are some of the best songs in all of heavy metal. Ozzy and Sabbath at their best.
Eeeh, what is this doing here? This is a list of the best SOLO albums by Ozzy, not albums he recorded with bands. So this should be removed.

3No More Tears
My Personal favourite, Ozzy and Zakk Wylde really kick ass! Love the guitar riffs and texts. The best songs are Mr Tinkertrain and No More Tears (IMO).
Amazing guitar riffs and solos! Ozzy vocals are so scary
The best ever!

4Diary Of A Madman
There is no Ozzy release, including anything by Black Sabbath, that can hold a candle to Diary of a Madman. This is my favorite rock and roll album period. Randy Rhoads was such a special talent. Although he only did two albums with Ozzy, we are still talking about him 30 years later. I love Blizzard of Ozz as wel; it is a close second for me. If you like this album, Blizzard of Ozz is a must as well as Sabotage.
This Album is the best its so powerfull randys tone was the best on this... Blizzards right behind it but over the mountain, flying high again, you can't kill rock and roll, believer, little dolls, tonight, S.A.T.O. , Diary of a madman Come on!
That's enough to say: 'Over The Mountain', 'You Can't Kill Rock And Roll', 'S.A.T.O. ' and of course the title song. Randy Rhoads' fantastic riffs and terrific solos makes this album Ozzy Osbourne's best work.

5Master Of Reality
Even though it's Black Sabbath, it's the best.
From a time when metal was still taking shape, "Master of Reality" would probably be the most unforgettable, genre defining album to come out in the 70s.

6No Rest for the Wicked
No Rest for the Wicked is the fifth studio album. It was released on September 28, 1988 and was re-issued / remastered on August 22, 1995 and again on June 25, 2002. The album was certified gold in December 1988 and has since gone double platinum.

7Bark at the Moon
First of all why is there Sabbath albums on this list this isn't the greatest albums by Black Sabbath, second, as great as Blizzard is it is not Ozzy's best album maybe when I was like 15. I can't really determine the best but Bark At The Moon should definitely be in the top 3 just listen to songs like Your No Different, Waiting For Darkness and of course on of my favorite Ozzy songs of all time Rock n' Roll Rebel. Don't vote for popularity vote for quality.
Bark at the Moon is great, with Jake E Lee on guitar, love Rock n Roll Rebel

8The Ultimate Sin
This is definitely an underrated album and Jake E. Lee is one hell of a guitarist but I'm still conflicted on what album is Ozzy's greatest it's either The Ultimate Sin, Diary of a Madman, or No Rest For the Wicked I'm still not quite sure, but what I am sure of is that Blizzard of Ozz is not his greatest, in fact in my opinion the only truly great song off it that I'm not tired of is I Don't Know. I remember when I first started listening to Ozzy I thought that Blizzard of Ozz was the greatest especially because of Crazy Train, so I asked a well known Ozzy fan what he thought about Blizzard and he said, "Nah there's better". I was in utter shock at the time but now I understand.
The best Ozzy album to date. At least has the best guitar work.
So underated, it's a great album!
Jake Lee is the best too.
Alright, Ozzy doesn't like this album, but his mind is totaly messed up too :P
Don't dare to call yourself an Ozzy fan if you don't have this.
This is the first metal album I listened to. It made me a metalhead.

It is underrated but is best mixed, it is probadly the most melodic ozzy album. Each songs flows into the next Fool Like You and Shot in the Dark sound like a Sequel. Never and Fool... Are underrated songs

9Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
This is a killer album, and to me stands next to Sabotage and Paranoid as the best of Black Sabbath. After a shaky Vol. 4, (though not lacking moments of incredible talent) Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is a staple. The title track is full and throaty hinging on the older days of Paranoid. "Killing yourself to live" kicks off the "B" side of the album and goes into "who are you" a standout performance of head nodding into a strange slower song. A unique moment for Sabbath.

Oh and some amazing cover art done by the renown Drew Struzan, known for his Star Wars and Indiana Jones movie posters.

An overall great production.
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album is the fifth studio album by the British heavy metal band Black Sabbath and Ozzy osbourne, released in December 1973.

10Scream
I think everything that the man has done was masterpiece starting with Fabolous all the way up to his solo career I really don't think he's had a bad albumno bark at the moon and the ultimate sin wasn't his strongest but there was still some awesome songs on therenot like some bands you get one maybe two songs and rest album sucks ass I think I'll see the masterpiece I hope he keeps rocking it till they dies I seen him in Black Sabbath out here in California about 2 months ago and it was awesome
One of the finest metal albums in the world. Should be higher up

13Black Rain
Very very good songs, well planned, hats off ozzy! I am waiting for your new album. I hope this album will have a very good position. "Not going away", "Lay your world on me", The almighty dollar" and "Here for you" are absolutely good and pleasant songs. Keep it up Ozzy

14Tribute

15The Ozzman Cometh
Besides the fact that the earliest known recordings of Black Sabbath is on this album it also contains Back On Earth which is not only an unbelievable song but this is the only album that you can find that particular song.
The oz cometh is my favret album

16Sabotage
Album release in year 1975 and is a mix of heavy, powerful songs such as "Hole in the Sky" and "Symptom of the Universe", and softer experimental songs such as "Supertzar" and "Am I Going Insane (Radio)". The title of the latter caused some confusion due to the "(Radio)" part, which led people to believe the song was a radio cut or radio version. However, this is the only version of the song: the term "radio-rental" is rhyming slang for "mental".[3]

"The Writ" was one of only a handful of Black Sabbath songs to feature lyrics composed by vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, [4] who typically relied on bassist Geezer Butler for lyrics. The song was a response to the frustrations Osbourne felt at the time, as Black Sabbath's former management were suing the band after having been fired.[4] At one point during recording, a representative of their former management entered the studio and served the band a writ to appear in court.[4] During this period, the band began to question if there was any point to recording albums and touring endlessly "just to pay the lawyers".

17Down to Earth
Down to Earth is the eighth studio album by British heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. Released on 16 October 2001, the album reached number 19 on the UK Albums Chart and number four on the US Billboard 200 albums chart. Down to Earth spawned just two singles, although both reached the top-ten of the US Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and reached number 18 on the UK Singles Chart. The album was certified Platinum and has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide.

18Just Say Ozzy
Ozzy himself says that the version of Shot in the Dark on this album is his favorite version, not to mention it's Zakk Wylde's first official live album.
