I actually think Robert Trujilo's bass tracks outshine anything Rudy Sarzo never did.

Both albums have several inches of nostalgic value for me. The first time I listened to Blizzard of Ozz was an accident. We rented this Volkswagen and someone had left a black tape which just simply stated "Blizzard of Ozz." I was a little kid and curious of music, and I sat in that dam van for hours listening to that tape and almost drained the car battery. I have never had an album since which would have the same effect. The musicianship was just lightyears ahead in warmth, groove and technical talent.

That's funny since Sarzo, album jacket picture not withstanding, doesn't play on either album. If he had played on Diary then Trulilo might not have had to redo that one since Sharon and Ozz were fighting Daisley and Kerslake in court and not Aldridge and Sarzo.

 


For me, the first song of Ozz that I heard was Flying High Again and I would for many years have said that Diary was the better record. Every song is great except maybe S.A.T.O and the production sounds slightly more polished than Blizzard.

 


But over the years Blizzard has tied Diary for me due to the fact that there are many signature Ozz songs on it. I Don't Know, Crazy Train and Mr. Crowley were live staples for him. Another thing that gives Blizzard a nod is the Revelation (Mother Earth) guitar solo which leads into the serious groove of Steal Away (The Night).

 


What an incredible band though. Each member brought the needed ingredient to these two records. Ozzy has been unable to come anywhere close with anything else he has ever released.

It's too hard to pick.

Diary sounds better if that's worth anything.

Rudy Sarzo is awesome of taking the credit on fellow rock musicians, and money certainly channelled both Robert Trujilo and Mike Bordin for 'lip-synching' their parts. There's fans coming to Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge asking for autographs for their vinyls, and they don't really tell the fans that they didn't actually play on Diary of a Madman. Next time, get Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell to do it.

Osbourne, Kerslake, Daisley and Rhoads had an amazing groove together, which can't be reproduced. Amazing records - both of them. Revelation (Mother Earth) and Diary of a Madman are my favorite cuts.

The back cover is creepy too what with the sleeping or dead Ozzy, the black cat and the white suit with fringe Ozzy.

Ozzy looks like a drugged up fiend. That's all I want to post about this thread. It makes me want to get violent. It's a good thing that there are no Ozzy fans posting here. Now on to the good Dio threads. blankstare

OK people I don't have the hang of these board things so cut me some slack. On the topic of these two albums. It really is hard to pick one over the other but I would give it to DoaM because of Revalation Mother Earth and the title track. RME has got the best Randy solo and I never fail to be moved by it.

I must be smoking crack. Of course RME is not on Diary so now what I posted makes no sense at all.

Let me try this again

I still will go with DoaM even though RME is not on it. Believer and the title track are the top songs for me.

Over the Mountain is a hella cool intro to Diary too.
