Whichever the worst album out of all of those is, I might try. I like starting with the crap and building on it.

Never heard Hughes or Martin sing, and Ian Gillan/Purple I never liked, he sounds like a Vegas lounge singer.

If someone wants to suggest to me a post-Dio era album to start, I'm open to having my mind changed.
There's more to the Ozzy era than the four big hits they had with Paranoid, War Pigs, Iron Man and Sweet Leaf. Just start with the first Sabbath album and work your way through the Ozzy era. The first six albums is one of the greatest album streaks of all time.

You've never heard Glenn Hughes? Are you even a rock/metal fan?

OK... worst... difficult, they're all good.

Probably Born Again, seeing as you don't like Ian Gillan. Or if you want to avoid that, then I suppose Forbidden has the least number of good songs on it.

I've heard more than that.

Black Sabbath
N.I.B.
Planet Caravan
Fairies Wear Boots
Children Of The Grave
Into The Void
Snowblind
Changes
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Sabbra Cadabra
Hole in the Sky
Symptom of the Universe

All incredibly boring and uninteresting. Did I just commit a metal sin?

Thou shall be punished

But...

Some people think that Sabbath was nothing more than Ozzy's backup- band. HE did not invent metal, Tony Iommi did. Even on the lesser records, some songs still had those bone crushing killer riffs, he simply is the best guitarist in the world for me. And no, his main guitar is NOT a Gibson SG...

Besides, I discovered the late, great, Ronnie Dio thx to Sabbath.

Okay update. I bought Technical Ecstasy as my first Ozzy-era album yesterday and I have to say pretty good so far, 2 more songs to go, but I'm enjoying it! Anyone like/hate that album more than the others?

I'd say it's like the second or third worst BS album ever.
