Greatest Ozzy Osbourne Albums

25 kick ass albums, but out of 25, what is the greatest Ozzy Osbourne album ever?

The Top Ten

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

Even though this is Ozzy's first album of his solo career, It is easily my favorite, and Randy was one hell of a guitarist. If he was still alive today, the world would be way better place. Songs like Goodbye to Romance and Mr Crowley really take me back and just into another world. I don't even think there is a song on here that I don't like (I haven't listened to No Bone Movies yet). Every single song is an inspiration to me, and also a piece of magic and hope for me, to hopefully bring back to the world in the future. - benhos

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

No question this is Ozzy's best album start to finish. A classic in heavy metal. If you were to listen to only 1 Ozzy Osbourne this is it.

2 Diary 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. - gabegyebnar

Randy Rhoads greatest album & my personal favorite cd of all time. Flawless!

3 No More Tears

Easily my second favorite Ozzy album, there are a few tracks I haven't heard, but those I have I am utterly in love with. Road to Nowhere was kind of ruined because I was listening to it while I heard of my first death of a loved one, but it is still a fantastic song. Other songs like No More Tears, Mama I'm Comin' Home, and Desire are really fantastic works of art, and like with most BOO tracks, they take me into another world where I can enjoy the nostalgia and hope. - benhos

My favorite album by Ozzy Osbourne! I really dig the song Mr. Tinkertrain. The fact that it's about a pedophile sounds a bit sick but it's a kick ass song. Definitely one of my favorites! Besides, it has a good point-be careful in the real world. Even many of the other songs on the album are super great! I love you, Ozzy Osbourne!

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).

For me absolute no1 album, famous guitar of Zakk.I listen it in 1991 first and than 1000000 times again till today. It is like good whiskey, if older - better.

4 Bark 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.

Should be at least number three, of course my number one and two are different as well, lol. Ultimate sin, Diary, then Bark at the Moon. This was the album that opened up a whole new world of music for me--namely Metal!

Bark at the Moon is great, with Jake E Lee on guitar, love Rock n Roll Rebel

If Randy Roads wouldn't have died in a plane crash, there is no way Diary would be ranked no.2. seriously flying high again and over the mountain good heavy metal songs?

blizzard of Oz, the album that he wrote with Lee and Bob and did not give them credit is the easy choice people will take. we can't barely hear the bass on it and if you remove crazy train...

this is the Ozzy Album. (my opinion)

5 The 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.

All of Ozzy's albums are fantastic but I gotta give the vote to The Ultimate Sin, just listen to songs like Killer of Giants, Fool Like You, Lightning Strikes and the title track and I'll have to say no more.

Been an Ozzy fan for as long as I can remember--Bark at the Moon is the song that hooked me, and I love that album. But for me, it has to be the Ultimate Sin album. It has held up well over the years, like BATM, it is timeless. That I am sure has to do with the superb guitar work found throughout! Jake E Lee ROCKS, and really was Oz's best six string slinger! I think it sucks that Ozzy and Sharon have made this album disappear, so maybe Jake and his band can redo the album an put it out--hint, hint, hint, hey if the Osbourne's are too stupid, then... :P

6 No 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.

There is nary a single song on this album that doesn't rock. That is the same definition that Aerosmith Rocks gets. Unreal. Go Ozzy.

Not just a good album but also a good song by Godsmack

The best & heaviest Ozzy Ozbourne album. Bark at the moon comes close

7 Scream

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

In my opinion his greatest album.

Sorry but this album is awful - Sabbath

8 Black 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

Very underrated album the almighty dollar and countdowns begun should both be in memoirs of a madman

9 Ozzmosis

Highly under rated! Love Ghost behind my eyes and thunder underground

I get it this album is over produced but I that shouldn't overshadow its greatness. I listen to this album as much as any other Ozzy work.

This album was very well produced. It doesn't have a bad song on it. It has the "old school" heavy metal sounds like thunder underground as well as the more complex stuff like Ghost behind my eyes and the "reflective" stuff that ozzy does so well like.. see you on the other side.This album has something for everyone. Ozzy has such an interesting voice and and he always attracts top notch talent.

How is scream above ozzmosis. Scream sucks and ozzmosis rules - Sabbath

10 Down 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.

The album was certified Platinum and has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide.

The Contenders

11 Master Of Reality

Again this is a Black sabbath album not a Ozzy Osbourne album they should learn the difference between black sabbath and ozzy even if he was in black sabbath doesn't mean they should count them as the same band, different members for christ or should I say Ozzy Sake

Even though it's Black Sabbath, it's the best.

Possibly the best album in history (at least in my top 5), but I think we're talking solo Ozzy here, so this album (and all the other Sabbath albums) shouldn't be on here.

My favourite album, great ambient

12 Tribute

Tribute is a live album by heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. The album was released on March 19, 1987, It was reissued on August 22, 1995 and again remastered and reissued in 2002

13 Speak of the Devil

This is a Jewel with sarzo, gillis and aldridge includes the darkest and baddest version of the black sabbath song sounds infernal and that solos of gyllis are the best!

14 The 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.

15 Just 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.

16 Sabotage

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 ...more
