    There is always debate about witch Ozzy/Randy CD was the best, Diary or Blizzard (at least in circles I hang out with). But what about the guitar playing of Zakk Wylde, one of the last great, still famous and touring guitarist.
    I would rank the albums like this.

    1)No more tears-Fair Warning-ish in pure awesome-niss (simplest way of putting it)
    2&3)No rest for the wicked/Ozzmosis- Both serve greatly for two different moods, just wish production was better on Ozzmosis
    4)Down to earth

    I know this could go into the poll section of these fine forums but I want a discussion and not a poll.

    No More Tears is clearly the best album!!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I like all of them though, Down To Earth has really grown on me lately, I love the songs That I Never Had, Dreamer and Junkie, and Ozzy set's everyone straight with Get's Me Through!

    Other favorite Ozzy solo songs with Zakk are Perry Mason, Miracle Man, No More Tears, Desire, I Don't Wanna Change The World, and I Just Want You.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    I'd agree that overall, song for song, No More Tears is the best CD. My favorite CD of the four is No Rest For the Wicked because it has my three favorite Ozzy/Zakk songs: Crazy Babies, Miracle Man, and Breaking All the Rules. Those tunes are super heavy. I'd rank 'em as follows:

    1) No Rest for the Wicked
    2) No More Tears
    3) Ozzmosis
    4) Down to Earth (really like Dreamer even though it's such a Beatles knock-off)
    "With me in the band, it's one of those miraculous 97-97 deals. It's 97 percent you and 97 percent moi. Is it Mick or Keith? I don't know" -DLR

    "We eventually started playing clubs, and we also did weddings. We played everything from the Ohio Players to K.C. & the Sunshine Band. You would love the sight of Van Halen doing 'Get Down Tonight'! But by the third set when everybody was good and tanked up--boy, we'd be blazin'!" -Michael Anthony

    No Rest...is IMO BY FAR! the best Ozzy/Wylde cd - the others I just can't get into, so I'm not going to even rate them - but last place is definitly Down to Earth - ABSOLUTE CRAP album!! - and I own every Sabbath and Ozzy album ever released.

    But No Rest - great songs, great guitar playing. One of my fave ever cd's.

    I went and saw Zack 4 years ago at a legendary Seattle club called The Backstage (now closed). He played acoustic to support some album he did. Awesome show.

    No more tears
    Ozzmosis
    No Rest...
    Down to Earth.

    i love the no more tears album, it was one of the first CD's that I bought and I love the song SIN, it is one of my favorite all time songs. Then, Perry mason has one of my fav. all time guitar solos and I also love Tomorrow, and Old L.A. tonight,not to mention thunder underground and see you on the other side.
    Lets Hope VH gets some Sensible Shoes that lead them back to Dave.

    MINE TOO! I never understood how people don't see what a bad ass song that is! The outro solo is one if not the best solo Zakk Wylde has ever recorded. I have to rewind that last thirty seconds or so every time I hear the song.

    I have the demo when the song was called "You wont be coming home".

    NMT is a good album but its a bit too polished for my liking.
