Most artists are like this. Black Sabbath aren't being inducted because of TYR or Seventh Star. They're being inducted for their first six albums.

That's true. Still, I like TYR and Seventh Star. Good albums. Even better were The Eternal Idol and Cross Purposes. Sabbath (or, in many cases Tony Iommi carrying on the Sabbath name) put out several great albums once Ozzy was shown the door. Unfortunately, the line-up's constant upheaval badly hurt their credibility and the albums didn't sell well. Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules (the Dio era) are generally considered "classic" Sabbath albums by most fans these days.

With KISS their first 6 studio albums are their most highly regarded by a majority of fans - but each album had some really good songs, and some later albums were rock solid (Creatures of the Night, Lick It Up, Asylum, Revenge, Carnival of Souls). They were kind of like the Stones in this regard. Later albums were hit or miss with the fans (some liked them, others didn't).

It's funny how the people voting for the entrants to the hall pretty much tend to ignore the fans - the people that the music is for and about in the first place. They try to make something more significant out of Rock and Roll than was originally intended - after all, Rock and Roll IS "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Hound Dog," "Rock Around the Clock," "Johnny B. Goode," etc, not high art.
