It's Ronnie for me, too.
Although I have to say all of them were great singers, and all of the different eras produced great albums.
And btw Hughes was never a member of the band.

I have to choose Dio. By the way, what he's referring to with Hughes is that the album he recorded with Iommi was meant to be a Tony Iommi solo album, but at the last minute, the record company insisted on putting labeling it "Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi." They did tour under the name Black Sabbath, but it's obvious from listening to the album that it wasn't written as a Black Sabbath album, though I think it's a good album.

Pretty close tie between Ronnie James Dio and Tony Martin for me, but leaning towards the former...

So he wasn't.

I was pretty much thinking the same, but did in fact end up voting Dio.

Liked Dio most, but they wrote the best songs during Ozzy era, so I voted Ozzy.

Yeah, except that he sang on a Black Sabbath record, hence earning the "Black Sabbath vocalist" moniker.

I voted Martin by simple virtue of I like his voice the most and the music done with him the most. Granted I also think the Ozzy era had much of their best music, but as a singer Ozzy doesn't compare with Martin.

My favourite Sabbath albums are the Ozzy ones, but my favourite Sabbath singer is Dio by far.

My favorite Sabbath albums are actually the Dio albums. The Mob Rules probably being the best, and Dehumanizer being the heaviest and perhaps my personal favorite. The Ozzy albums were obviously more significant, though and I think they're both comparable in quality. Songs like Sympton Of The Universe, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Into The Void, Electric Funeral and the band's title song were way ahead of their time with some of the greatest riffs to this day.

By the way, I've always wondered what an album with Halford would have sounded like. They were originally supposed to record something after Halford replaced Dio, but Halford ended up doing Fight instead. Don't remember if it was because of contractual obligations, or a personal choice. I'm a big Tony Martin fan, but I can't help but wonder about a Sabbath album with Halford.

I don't object to you including him. I'm just saying that it's pretty easy to see why Glenn himself and others don't consider him to have been a Black Sabbath singer. Technically, you're right that the album was under the name Black Sabbath, but it's also the only album to say "featuring Tony Iommi" which in itself differentiates it from other Sabbath albums and suggests more of a solo project.

Ray Gillen was at least as much of a Sabbath vocalist as Hughes considering he joined the band when they were intended to be Sabbath, toured under the name, and recorded with them, his recordings having now finally seen an official release.

Again, I don't really care if someone considers Hughes a Sabbath vocalist or not, I just don't think it's unreasonable to have either opinion.

Hm, interesting. Their Ozzy albums definitely take the prize for me, just because the songwriting was so great back then...especially on albums like Sabotage. I'll admit that Technical Ecstasy was a pretty forgettable album, though, and Never Say Die! was a bit cluttered with its sense of organization/direction as an album...even if it did have some very good individual songs. But yeah, the first few albums are just classic doomy Sabbath, and the experimentation that they got into after that was really cool too. I can't say I've ever really heard any other kind of metal that I can compare to what Sabbath do on Sabotage and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, just cause it's so unique. Dio era Sabbath had some really good songs, but nothing they did ever compared to that kind of uniqueness, which is likewise true for any incarnation of Sabbath after that. I also really love some of the Tony Martin era albums, but again, those were just really good for what they were...but they couldn't touch the originality of '70s Sabbath.

You know he did a gig with them once in the '90s or something, right? I think the recording's on YouTube. I know that's not quite the same thing, but I figured it would be worth mentioning.

The Seventh Star was as much of a Black Sabbath album as The System Has Failed was a Megadeth album. Make of that as you will.

I do believe Gillen should be on the poll. An amazing singer, pity it wasn't to be.

Yeah, Gillen had an incredible voice. But I'm happy with how the Sabbath thing worked out because I really like the Tony Martin albums, and I'm a big fan of the Badlands albums.

Shit, I had heard that years ago and had completely forgotten! It's not as crazy as many think it sounds when you listen to his earlier material, and he obviously had the talent. I've also heard that Coverdale was asked, and Ron Keel auditioned(claimed he was actually hired briefly)

I did Ozzy Osbourne because that was my favorite Sabbath era with the doom metal styled-songs. In a battle of the best singer (in my opinion) DIO

Not a big fan of the band, but I like them, and most of the songs I like are from the Ozzy era and sung by Ozzy (including the new album).
