    The entire album is great tbh, but that's a funny way of spelling Johnny Blade.

    Hmmm... in that case, Never Say Die or Technical Ecstasy? I think TE is better from start to finish...

    I prefer NSD in terms of consistency tbh. TE has a couple songs I'm not fond of, like All Moving Parts or Rock n' Roll Doctor.

    Both albums are great though. Sabbath never put out a bad album during the Ozzy and Dio eras.

    Morbid Angel is straight up boring. Their music is flavorless and monochromatic. It lacks power, atmopshere or anything else that could make it worhtwhile and the compositions are not nearly engaging enough to compensate for the lack of presence.

    Couldn't agree more... no bad albums from the Ozzy or Dio eras! :headbang:

    If you're listening to Covenant or after, sure.

    Altars and Blessed are flawless though.

    Gateways is not boring or "flavorless".

    Even total shit like Heretic is far from flavorless, but crimsonfloyd is a texturesfag so whaddya expect.

    Gateways never really connected with me tbh. I enjoyed parts of Heretic and Formulas though.

    I don't get how someone would say those albums flawless but at the same time think Covenant is "boring or flavorless". Weird.

    Their only albums that would fall under those titles would be their last two albums.

    Every song is a 5/10 or 6/10 with no exceptional tracks on either album. I've tried and tried to see what people think is so special about them, but I fail to see a single exemplary or extraordinary quality to either record. Is it just that they were the first to develop a certain style?

    Sorry man but your opinion isn't controversial, it's just wrong! There is nothing boring or flavorless about any of their albums bar parts of heretic and pretty much all of the last one. Altars will always be a goto album for me.

    Visions from the Dark Side is almost a black metal song, even you should be able to like that one.

    Meh, there's one black metalish riff in there which is nice. But really that's the issue. That record nevet ascends above "nice."

    Never say die is a solid album. TE has some good songs.

    I agree with crimsonfloyd. Morbid Angel is boring

    When it comes to Floridian death, none are more boring than Nocturnus.

    Yep, Morbid Angel is very boring. I tried to get on board with the song survivor thread we had going for them but every song just kept blending into the other. I knew picking the worst would be a random crap shoot.

    Never Say Die and Technical Ecstasy are both fucking awful by Sabbath standards. 2 of their bottom 3 really.

    Not liking Morbid Angel and Nocturnus makes you guys falses, btw.

    Nocturnus has one OK album, then a shitty thrash metal one and an even worse single/EP after that. Never bothered checking out that third album, but they're a perfect example of what benefits being born into the wrong scene can bring.
