Default Blizzard of Ozz or Heaven & Hell?

Two remarkable heavy metal classics from 1980, one with Dio and Iommi, other with Ozzy and Randy.

Pick a side here.
For me H&H all day, every day.

Heaven & Hell, easily. I don't really think Blizzard is all that great. It's got a couple classic tracks, but Heaven & Hell plays beautifully as an album. It's very atmospheric and just works a lot better for me as a front-to-back play than Blizzard does. Diary of a Madman was where Ozzy pulled off a really solid album.

Blizzard because of Randy Rhoads and my dislike of Dio. I think I've said on here before that Randy Rhoads is like the guitarist equivalent of Superbad: phenomenal on their own but they sparked a massive wave of unsuccessful imitators that made a lot of the work in that genre unbearably bad.

Examples of those bad imitators?

Btw, for the record: I don't like anything Dio has ever done, except Heaven & Hell and Mob Rules. Screw his solo career and the last couple albums he did with Tony Iommi.

Buckethead and George Lynch come to mind. They're just as fast, even faster, but holy **** are they boring and uninventive.

I used to like some Buckethead tracks, but yeah, I think he buries his good ideas under mountains of wank. I can't say that I've ever made the connection between him and Randy, though. I'll have to sit on that for a while to see if I think it makes sense.

It's in the soloing style.

I think Diary of a Madman and Mob Rules are better than the previous albums from either band anyway.
