Though many bands have succeeded in earning the hatred of parents and media worldwide throughout the past few decades, arguably only such acts as Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, and Marilyn Manson have tied the controversial record of Ozzy Osbourne. The former Black Sabbath frontman has been highly criticized over his career, mostly due to rumors denouncing him as a ... Read more in Amazon's Ozzy Osbourne Store

with a superb production and a fantastic band behind him ozzy sounds excellent.songs such as "devils daughter" , "bloodbath in paradise"and "crazy babies"would fit on any classic ozzy or sabbath album.special praise goes to "the beast"zakk wlyde whos guitar excellence never ceases to amaze me.the album does have some weak moments and is not as consistent as "blizzard of ozz" or "bark at the moon",but ozzy retains his crown as the ultimate metal god!!!!!!!!

Ozzy Osbourne's No Rest For The Wicked was his fifth studio album as a solo artist and was released in 1988. This was the first Ozzy album to feature Zack Wlyde who replaced Jake E Lee on guitar duties.

Zack has a very different guitar style to either Randy's or Jake E Lee's; his playing is full of pinch harmonics, squeals and other little flourishes that make his playing different to each of Ozzy's previous guitarists, on top of that he delivers a more heavy metal style of riff more frequently and as a consequence the direction of this album changed.

After the death of original guitarist Randy Rhodes, Ozzy started heading in a more commercial direction, but No Rest For The Wicked reverse the trend with a very rock orientated sound musically and much heavier production sound.

No Rest For The Wicked primarily contains straight up hard and heavy numbers, with a much less commercial direction than the previous two albums and as such hasn't dated just as badly as they have. Surprisingly; give the increased heaviness of the album, it sold very well and was a large commercial and critical success.

The album is full of strong and well written music, including the excellent `Miracle Man,' `Breaking All The Rules,' and `Crazy Babies.' The whole album is fairly consistent and the majority of the material is of that same high quality.

If you enjoy big riffs and bold guitar solos then this is a superb album, the only real flaw you could level at it is that it may be a bit repetitive, certainly so if you don't like pinch harmonics. For everyone else, this shouldn't put you off however and I highly recommend you give the album a shot.

Overall, No Rest For The Wicked is one of the better Ozzy albums out there, the material is strong, consistent and fairly heavy. Overall, it is a pretty essential buy for fans.

Flat sounding production and too many substandard, going through the motions songs. Not as good as any of the previous albums and Jake E Lee was a superior guitar player to this new guy IMO. It's by no means a bad album it is all just VERY average.

This album got a bit of a panning at the time of its release, and didn't really seem to get the thumbs up from many of Ozzy's fans who'd been there during the Randy Rhoads years. However. That said. This album is the sound of Ozzy rediscovering his metal roots, and creating a full blown heavy metal album. And about time to I say. Zakk Wylde is blistering on this record. His guitar absolutely dominates the sound - and all for the better actually, as it injects real drive and energy into the songs. It's true there's a couple of below par numbers, (I'm thinking Breakin all the rules and Tatooed dancer), which sound a bit formulaic. But for the rest - Miracle Man, Bloodbath in Paradise, Devil's Daughter....they're all top drawer. And he saved the best to last. The original album closed with Demon Alcohol, an ode to his battles with the bottle. What A RIFF!!

If you don't own this album, but love a good bit of all out classic heavy metal then this is the CD for you. If you already have this but haven't listened to it in years, then it's time you rediscover this overlooked diamond.

This is Ozzys Fifth studio album released in 1988 & the first to feature Zakk Wlyde who takes over Guitar duties from Jake E.Lee.

This album has booming riffs & outstanding guitar solos thanks to the impressive guitar skills of Zakk Wlyde which gives Ozzy songs a more powerful mature tone.

The material on this album is very strong with some classic written tracks from the catchy opening of Miracle Man to the wonderful Breaking All The Rules & my personal favourite Fire In The Sky.

The songs on this album seems far less cheesy than Ozzys previous album The Ultimate Sin & on No Rest For The Wicked the sound seems a lot heavier anthem like as Zakk Wlyde seems to be pushing Ozzy in a whole new direction.

While there isn't much variety of the song's on this album it certainly delivers an impressive set of rock fiffs & catchy choruses that makes this one of Ozzys better albums & made this massive Ozzy fan very happy.

This is by no means a CLASSIC rock album, nor is it a duffer. After the departure of Jake E Lee for Badlands, Ozzy recruits Zakk Wylde; a self confessed Sabbath/Ozzy/Randy Rhoads fan. Gone was the tinny sound from 'Ultimate Sin', back came the crunching riffs :)

I admit I like this album. 'Miracle Man', 'Devils Daughter' and 'Crazy Babies' set the tone, and its a heavy one! 'Breaking All The Rules' I think has a great riff. 'Fire In The Sky' tells a story of Ozzy growing up and has that epic feel to it. 'Demon Alcohol' needs no explaining! 'Hero' (the bonus track)is a hidden gem!!

Yes, this album has 'Tattoed Dancer' and can sound a bit samey, but its a step in the right direction for Ozzy. This is an album that sits there quietly in its place. Month after month it sits, waiting patiently. Then it gets played for a few days and is returned to the shelf with a big smile on your face. Job done!
