Default Favourite Black Sabbath album?

What is your favourite Sabbath album and why? Each new singer that has joined the band has brought something new to the sabbath sound for better or worse. Don't just vote, we need a reason!

My favourite Ozzy era album was Paranoid (cliche I know ). It was the first Sabbath I ever heard and I still feel the musical earthquake I felt when I first heard the album.

My favourite Dio era is definitely Heaven and Hell.


I guess I have to go with Paranoid overall.

Well, as far as metal goes I'm not a big fan of the fast/screamy/growly/macho/cock-rockin' varieties I tend to go more for the atmospheric, sludgy, dark vibes which I think Black Sabbath peaked with on Master of Reality. Also, Into the Void is one of my favorite songs ever.

I am big into Black Sabbath's debut because it showed a great deal of blues influence, which I really liked with the dark sound. Plus I think this album is more complete then my next favorite, Paranoid, in that I get sick of some tracks in Paranoid, whereas the debut has me entertained the whole time.

3. Master of Reality
4. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
5. Sabotage

I beg to differ. I think Black Sabbath was at its best with RJD as the singer. I am not saying Ozzy is bad, I just think that it was at its prime with Dio.

But my vote goes to Heaven and Hell, hands down. That album is just.....just....what's the word I am looking for....oh yea!

Amazing!

The Debut is their best effort by miles, groundbreaking at the time and it really has aged well.

The only thing I see as the same between Ozzy Sabbath and Dio Sabbath is the name. I used to think that Ozzy Sabbath was better, but I got smarter with age. Now that I have listened to Dio Sabbath with an open mind, I don't even hear them as the same band. The sound and content is so different to me that I no longer compare the two. I vote Mob Rules for Dio years, and Paranoid for Ozzy. I see them as 2 bands, so I want 2 votes. I don't have a vote for the other 3 singers as I never really listened to them.
