Default Ozzy Osbourne solo (vs) Black Sabbath w/ Ozzy (vs) Black Sabbath w/ Dio

So which is the best? Cast your vote to decide once and for all!
Is it?
1. Ozzy's solo career with Randy Rhodes and Zakk Wylde?
2. Black Sabbath when Ozzy was vocalist?
3. Black Sabbath with Dio as vocalist?

Now then, some ground rules for voting;

You don't take into consideration the effect the music has had.
So don't vote for one because you think their contribution to music is more important than another.

Vote for which makes / made the best music!

And it would also be nice if you gave a few examples and reasons for which is the best music.

So vote away!

I voted for Ozzy's solo career.

Because as iconic as he was with Sabbath, the music he's done since is so much better and equally as amazing.

Randy Rhodes and Zakk Wylde are better than Tony Iommi.
I'm not saying his contribution or his talent are nothing, because they are, but as for song writing, Randy and Zakk are just better!

I love old Sabbath, hate Heaven and Hell, but Ozzy's new stuff rocks!

No More Tears, Mr Crowley, Perry Mason, Crazy Train, Bark at the Moon.

They're all just great reasons!

His newest album isn't amazing, sounds more like Black Label Society than Ozzy, but maybe it's just not old enough for us to appreciate yet.

But still, Ozzy's solo > Sabbath w/ Ozzy > H&H

Every riff the guy writes is just, "Chugga chugga chugga WEEOOO, chugga chugga WEEOOO". Honestly, Zakk. It's been twenty or so years of that ****e now. Give it a ****ing rest already.

...now that I've got that out of my system, Sabbath with Ozzy.
Lol!
Go look up 'farewell ballad' by Zakk on youtube. He does do a lot of pinch harmonics, but he's got the talents, and has written some amazing stuff.
Check no more tears etc.

I don't have a lengthy explanation to my choice, but I prefer Ozzy with Black Sabbath.

Zakk Wylde is the ****, by the way. You're wrong.

Black Sabbath with Ozzy. As a band they just had a good feel for direction.

Seems Ronnie the dwarf has no lovers amongst appreciators of real music.

There is absolutely no metal band in the world that compares to Sabbath with Ozzy, but inversely, I don't think I could find an act which I hate more than Ozzy solo or H&H.

I love all seven Sabbath albums with Ozzy but I can find maybe a handful of songs between Ozzy and Dio that I can actually bear.

I actually like Ozzy more as a solo artist, than I did @ any time w/Sabbath. I like a few songs by Sabbath, but they're not the greatest ****ing group so many think of them as.

I've seen Ozzy solo once in '88, and he was awesome. My all time favorite Ozzy song is: Shot in the Dark.

Also, I love Dio, and think the "H&H" stuff he/they did, was excellent. I didnt care much for him w/Sabbath, but solo wise, Dio rocks.

I'd put the last one first, but at least Dio isn't getting votes.
