Sabbath-We Sold Our Soul For RnR
Scroll Down For the Review & Info
Released: 1976 Warner Brothers
|This is a compilation album that takes the
best of Black Sabbath during the Ozzy years and pieces them
together, creating the ultimate Sabbath album. Most Sabbath fans
think that the Ozzy years were the better years. Oddly enough,
it was Ozzy that was fired from Black Sabbath. It's funny,
considering the fact that Ozzy went on to bigger things and
greater fame as a solo artist while Sabbath declined, especially
after the departure of Ozzy's replacement, Ronnie James Dio.
This album has basically all of their classic rock radio
favorites. Songs like: "Iron Man",
"Paranoid", "War Pigs" and "Sabbath
Bloody Sabbath". There are a number of other songs that are
equally as good and they are: "Children of the Grave",
"Fairies Wear Boots", "Changes" (a piano
ballad with an orchestra) and "Sweet Leaf". I would
choose Heaven and Hell (1980) as the first runner up.
That's the first post-Ozzy album and the first one with Ronnie
James Dio. The two best post-Dio albums are Tyr and Headless
Cross. Years later, Dio reunited with Sabbath for the "Dehumanizer"
album. It was a good album but not nearly as good as Heaven
and Hell. Then came the original Sabbath members reunion.
That reunion went over much better with the public and made a
hell of a lot more money.
