Ozzy Osbourne, The Ultimate Sin

£60.00

Eschewing the pantomime theatrics of Ozzy Osbourne’s previous album covers in favour of a painting that could match its ambitious concept, The Ultimate Sin arguably remains the Prince Of Darkness’ finest artwork. As a volcano erupts in the background, Ozzy rises from the molten lava, a winged demon seemingly summoned by the possessed-looking female in the foreground. With the album’s mix of hard rock and 80s hair-metal clearly attempting to court a mainstream audience, the original design had to be toned down: several crucifixes were allegedly removed from the hilltop visible in the distance, while a pair of skin-tight trousers had to be added to cover the succubus’ exposed buttocks.
