Customer Reviews

Must have set.

I am not here to tell anyone that Dio is better than Ozzy, or vice versa. However, Dio has often been viewed as having a more operatic/tenor style vocal delivery than Ozzy. Noone can deny Ozzy's presence on the Sabbath classics, so I think it's best to considar both bands seperate. This set provides all 4 albums Dio played on with Sabbath. Combine this with a collection of the 70-78 stuff with Ozzy, and you have more than enough Sabbath to last a lifetime! The set starts with the amazing "Heaven and Hell" which really shows the group going in a somewhat prog-rock direction. The title track is epic, a song about choice and consequence. My personal favorite is "Children of the Sea", a call to humanity at large to considar the impact of our actions on the earth. Die Young and Neon Knights are also highly reccomended. Mob Rules is a continuation of the first album, with amazing tracks like the haunting "Voodoo" and "Falling off the Edge of the World". Definitely a classic. Live evil has a great mix of Dio and classic sabbath, I particularly like his version of "NIB" which I prefer to the original! The live versions of Heaven and Hell and Children of the Sea shouldn't be missed either! I think the most important album in here is Dehumanizer, as it represents a real growth for the band, with a loose concept framing such amazing songs as "Computer God", "I" and "Time Machine". To add even more value, the new recordings included on "The Dio Years" are here as well! SO for just about 2 and a half times the cost of buying the Dio Years compilation, you get EVERYTHING. Forty-six songs, every one of them relevant, an amazing bang for your buck!

A good album

Great but iTunes really needs to get a legit sabbath album with Ozzy on here.

The work of gods

I think that Ozzy and Dio were both great in their own ways. It's a very different Sabbath from Ozzy-but whatever you call it, it is still a testament to the genius of four of the greatest musicians of all time, and Vinny Appice.

Black Sabbath have been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late-'60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and macabre fantasies. If their predecessors clearly came out of an electrified blues tradition, Black...
