Ozzy Osbourne-The Ultimate Sin

Everything comes back it seems. Seasons come back, Indiana Jones comes back, Ozzy's brain cells...okay, maybe not everything comes back. However, our blog is back for better or worse. So hold on tight because here we go again. I was like 15 when this one came out and I remember staring at Boris Vallejo's rendering of Ozzy as a monster and the witch in full mid-80's metal chick garb. I liked it back then, but now it's a bit busy I think. I always look at the background and think of a pot of boiling spaghetti sauce instead of the big end of the world event I think they were shooting for. I am not sure why they made the decision to have a painting done instead of having Ozzy in some silly spot like they did in every previous cover.

Linda wanted to be that "mid-80's metal chick."

Interesting that they had someone dress the part of that woman in the "Shot in th dark" video. It was like a cover come to life. I have a three song picture disc and one side has Ozzy and Jake E. Lee standing with that model. Seems like Ozzy is biting her pants or something in that picture. The Ultimate Sin was a very big deal at that time, but people seem to have forgotten about it today.

Not a bad cover. I like the Ozzy monster. It does seem kind of dated though.

It seemed a bit lopsided to me. I think it is because they tried to get the nuclear blast in there... and cluttered to the left. At the time the cover didn't really make sense to me so I just ignored it and played the album. Not one if his better ones albums though.

I never liked this one. Too much like a bad Halloween display. But not horrible.

I always wondered if the woman on the cover was Sharon Osbourne.
