Ralph Viera (Dr.Fukk) from the band Thrash Or Die(http://www.facebook.com/thrashordie.fl) reviews the Ozzy Osbourne Discography. The Ultimate Sin is the fourth studio album by Ozzy Osbourne. It was released on 22 February 1986, and it was remastered and re-issued on 22 August 1995. This album features guitarist Jake E. Lee (formerly of Mickey Ratt, Rough Cutt and Dio). This is the only Osbourne album to feature bassist Phil Soussan - who wrote the album's U.S. hit single "Shot in the Dark" - and the first to feature the late drummer, Randy Castillo. Lyrics were largely written by long-time Osbourne bass player Bob Daisley, who was also present during the initial writing sessions. Daisley left after having a disagreement with Osbourne, which led to the hiring of Soussan. He was also not credited as a co-writer on the initial 1986 pressing of the album. This was corrected on subsequent pressings. Drummer Jimmy DeGrasso worked with Lee and Daisley on demos for the album, but the band fell apart when Ozzy did the Black Sabbath Live Aid reunion in 1985, so Randy Castillo and Phil Soussan replaced DeGrasso and Daisley.
The original title for this album was Killer of Giants (after the song of the same name) but Osbourne opted to change the title at the last minute, thus Killer of Giants became The Ultimate Sin.
The Ultimate Sin was passed over when most of Osbourne's other pre-2001 releases were re-issued in 2002.
At the time of it release, The Ultimate Sin was Osbourne's highest charting studio album. The RIAA awarded the album Platinum status on 14 May 1986, soon after its release; it was awarded Double Platinum status on 26 October 1994. The album sold over 2,000,000 copies worldwide. In the UK, it was the final of four Osbourne albums to attain Silver certification (60,000 units sold) by the British Phonographic Industry, achieving this in April 1986.
The album has since been deleted from Osbourne's catalogue and was not reissued, remastered (and in some cases re-recorded) along with the rest of Osbourne's albums (same for Just Say Ozzy and Live & Loud). There was a rumour that this was mainly due to a continuing legal struggle with bassist/songwriter, Phil Soussan over the song "Shot in the Dark", however this is unfounded as the only legal process between them was over an accounting issue that was resolved in the early '90s. It is not known why the mini-EP, Just Say Ozzy and the double-disc Live & Loud were also not re-released in 2002. The only available versions of these albums are the 1995 remasters. The original version of the album is still freely available in Australia as a budget-priced CD
