Yeah, I think you either have to compare overall body of work for both guys, or compare 'Black Sabbath', 'Paranoid', 'Master of Reality' and 'Volume 4' to 'Heaven & Hell', 'Mob Rules', 'Dehumanizer' and 'The Devil You Know'.

Comparing 8 Ozzy albums to 4 Dio ones is always going to come out in Ozzy's favour because the comparison is uneven.

Unless you also compare 'Live At Last', 'Reunion' and 'Past Lives' with 'Live Evil', 'Live From Radio City Music Hall' and 'Neon Nights: Live In Europe'... because Dio wins that one hands down.

I prefer Ozzy Sabbath but Dio solo.

I've truthfully only listened to Paranoid from Ozzy. Growing up post-MTV show, I really don't care about Ozzy Osbourne and I've never given his Sabbath or solo stuff a fair shot. Have no desire to start. I love Dio Sabbath, solo, Rainbow, whatever, though.

Now if you'd said Tony Martin (which is actually the correct answer, in case anyone was wondering), you'd have been on to a winner.

Paranoid the album, or Paranoid the song. If it's just Paranoid the song then you should be shot in the face with a harpoon gun. No joke

"Paranoid" used to be my player name back when we used to go play Photon every weekend.

I approve of this statement. Probably the shittiest song Sabbath has done.
