Blizzard Of Ozz is a significant album in the history of heavy metal. Released in 1980, this was the first solo album for Ozzy Osbourne, who had previously been the lead singer of Black Sabbath, the band often credited with creating the distinctive sound of heavy metal music in the early 1970s. The high regard for this album is obvious by its rating on this site - at the time of writing this review it ranks as #147 on the Top 200 albums of all time and #4 on the Top 20 albums of 1980 - surprising then that this is the first review for this landmark release.

Ozzy's first two albums blow away the rest of his solo work.

Insanely overrated in my opinion. Goodbye to Romance is embarassingly bad, the only solid part of this album is the opening riff to Suicide Solution. Other than that, blah.

I agree with the "Ozzy's first two albums blow away the rest of his solo work" comment.
The rest just don't compare to this/these.
Besides the songs played heavily on the radio back then, I love Steal Away.

I'll third that remark. First two solo albums are the business. The others are good but not exceptional like the first two.

I'm going for a fifth and a half. I slightly agree that these two are infinitely better than the rest of his solo career, but I'll always have a love for No More Tears.
