The Ultimate Sin is the fourth studio album by British heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. It was released on 22 February 1986, and it was remastered and re-issued on 22 August 1995. It marks the final appearance of lead guitarist Jake E. Lee and the first and only Osbourne album to feature bassist Phil Soussan, who co-wrote the album's hit single "Shot in the Dark". Drummer Randy Castillo, who had previously played in Lita Ford's band, also makes his recording debut with Osbourne.

Band Name Ozzy Osbourne. Album Name The Ultimate Sin. Type Album. Erscheinungsdatum 22 Februar 1986. Labels Epic Records CBS Records. According to Ozzy history, there was some legal issues with one of the writers of the songs and this album was pulled from the category of the Prince of Darkness. However, I found a CD copy (and not the 1995 remasters either) of this and decided to begin my collection with this. Having not really listened to much of the older or newer material on CD, this was my first Ozzy CD and I had nothing to compare it to. Now that I have other CDs that are both classic and modern hits, I find this album rarely listened to at all.

Ozzy Osbourne released 'The Ultimate Sin' on Feb. 22, 1986 after a spell in rehab. There's no rest for the wicked, not even the Prince of Darkness - as Ozzy Osbourne learned firsthand when he was faced with the prospect of recording an album shortly after finishing his 1985 rehab stint at the Betty Ford Clinic. Osbourne, overweight and teetering on the edge of some truly serious health problems, was so out of it when his wife Sharon booked him into the Ford center that he later admitted he believed her when she told him it was "a club where they would teach me to drink like a gentleman" - and seeking to take advantage of that, he said he.
