If it wasn't for Gets Me Through and Dreamer, this album would be a total dissapointment. However, these two tracks are brilliant and show just how good this album could have been. But get used to the dissapointment of Facing Hell with its terrible chorus that lets down an excellent riff (listen to Demise Of Sanity by Black Label Society and see the similarity). However things look better, with Dreamer, which is one of the Ozzmans classics, that reminds you why Ozzy and Zakk Wylde are so good at what they do. The next track, No Easy Way Out is also top-notch Ozzy with one of the best solos of the album. That I Never Had is not quite as good but not as dissapointing as the nose dive that is Junkie. Some excellent riffs are wasted on this album and this a fine example of that - the lyrics are cliched to hell. But, again Ozzys knocks out a classic - Running Out Of Time, which is fairly similiar to Dreamer but darker. But, again Black Illusion brings the level down with what sounds like an attempt at Sabbath that just doesnt work. I also noticed that when the songs suck, Zakks soloing sucks as well - it just sounds like hes just shredding for the sake of it on a few too many of these tracks. From there on the album doesnt get any better. So it's worth the listen for the three tracks that stand out, but they stand out so much the rest of the album is left in the dirt. Certainly not comparable to No More Tears, No Rest, Blizzard etc.
