I gotta hear Mob Rules before I vote.

My Sabbath collection stops after Heaven & Hell. Gotta pick up Mob Rules.

I love Sabotage.

Mob Rules is one of Sabbath's two best albums.  Sabotage isn't.  But it does have Hole in the Sky.

Sabotage > Mob Rules.

Better overall album sound.
Better guitar tone.
Better riffs.
Better songs.

Better album cover :P

    I love watching musicians playing music. Their passion for what they do is written all over their faces.

    Life is better with music

I was here... don't remember it too well.

:yes:
Your post is very close of what I was going to type myself.

Sabotage is surely a "must have", my vote is for Mob Rules though.

I think Mob Rules just edges it, it's a bit more consistent overall.

I think Sabotage is a sort of tipping point for the first Ozzy era.  Half of it is great.  The other half was a preview to what was coming on Tech Ex and NSD!  And not in a good way.

Sabotage. IMHO Mob Rules is even better than Heaven And Hell, but some tunes on Sabotage will always remain unique.

Mob Rules is my favorite non-Ozzy fronted BS album and I don't rate Sabotage quite as high as many other fans do.

But Sabotage still wins head-to-head.
