10 Greatest Metal Albums Of The 1980’s

10. Ozzy Osbourne – Blizzard Of Oz

Home to tracks like Mr Crowley, and the immortal Crazy Train, Blizzard Of Ozz was a riff-heavy masterpiece that shot Ozzy Osbourne into super-stardom, with fans and critics praising the raw and aggressive nature of the album, which was complimented excellently by Osbourne’s amazing vocal range.

The album is also home to some great guitar solos, courtesy of Randy Rhodes, who did the best work of his tragically short career on the album.

In addition, the album was also a great seller, charting at #7 in the U.K. album chart and going platinum four times over in the United States. A prosperous start to a long and manic solo career.
