Tough one, but I'll go with

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Vol 4
Debut
Paranoid
Master of Reality
Never Say Die
Technical Ecstasy
13

My album buying was a bit odd back then, with the first "Sabbath" album i heard being Talk Of The Devil, and the first Sabbath album I bought was Heaven and Hell, and always have a preference for the Dio era, but as has been said, different band really


Just as an aside, I read yesterday that Rainbow's Difficult To Cure cover design had originally been offered to Sabbath for Never Say Die, but was rejected.
Interesting trivia if true.
Of course, apologies if everyone reading this is sort of "doh, did you not know that ?........

Shameful, I've only got Vol 4, Paranoid and Sabotage although I did listen to Technical Ecstasy from the local library on tape many years ago.
I know that Masters, SBS and the debut are worth acquiring so I must rectify that.
Have heard all the big songs on live albums though.

I love Vol 4 and Paranoid with Sabotage being pretty good as well (another old tape - will Spoty fly it again...).

So tentatively:

Joint 1st :-
Vol 4
Paranoid
2nd
Sabotage
Heard they're good so all at 3:-
SBS
Masters of Reality
Debut
4
Technical Ecstasy

Not heard at all:-
Never Say Die
13

Just out of curiosity, not just applying for TRF, but why does Technical Ecstasy get shat on?

To me it's a good album. My guess is the 6 before it were so incredible that it pales a bit in comparison. Had it been some other bands debut I think it would've gone over better.

It’s by far the weakest of the original 8.  It’s as close to generic as Ozzy-era could get. It’s Alright is excellent though.
