Ozzy talks about his new album Scream

Biography

Biographyby Barry Weber

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

Product Description

Product Description

Produced by OZZY and Kevin Churko, both of whom did the same honors for OZZY’s 2007 worldwide million-seller Black Rain, the album features the first single “Let Me Hear You Scream.”
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recorded most of Scream at his Los Angeles home studio, The Bunker, and co-wrote all the songs, primarily with Churko. Notably, the album marks the first appearance of OZZY’s new guitar player, Gus G. OZZY’s band also features bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

BBC Review

Rock's own Prince of Darkness has been living on borrowed time for so long that each new album he somehow manages to grind out is viewed as some sort of valedictory reckoning. With a loyal fan base, widespread public sympathy and the formidable power of the Ozzy brand working in his favour, we all cut the guy some slack. After all, this is probably gonna be his final album again, right?

Since his short-lived 'retirement' in 1994, Ozzy has issued just three studio albums, none of them anything to write home about and all pale shadows of his 1980s heyday. Despite a new line-up in his backing band and considerable effort expended to make up for 2007's abysmal Black Rain, Scream is yet another disappointingly mediocre effort. You can cut all the slack you like, but a spade is a spade.

A key element of Ozzy's long-term strategy has been periodic transfusions of talent. New rhythm sections are regular occurrences, new guitarists less so, but the six-string mantle does change hands occasionally. Ditching long-term axeman Zakk Wylde in favour of Greek guitar genius Gus G should have signalled a decisive dumping of the wannabe-contemporary Black Rain formula, but with producer/co-writer Kevin Churko still in place and all the material written before his arrival, Gus effectively had no creative input. While his real test as a suitable sidekick for Ozzy is still to come, he probably still feels like he's won the lottery. And it's good timing too, given the parlous state of his home nation's finances. None of this, of course, changes the fact that Scream is a deeply ordinary showcase for the new guitarist's prodigious skills.

In truth, all of Ozzy's solo albums are patchy, but Scream lacks the killer that drowns out the filler. When lead-off single Let Me Hear You Scream is the most dynamic song on offer, you know you're in for an uneventful ride. Surely the rock'n'rollercoaster that Ozzy has ridden for over four decades can't flat-line on its final stretch?

Stitched-together songs, overproduced vocals and mountains of mid-tempo sludge; this is what happens when musicians decide they need to sound 'relevant'.

Ignore the BBC review above. The BBC have never been big endorsers of anything other than mainstream.
This is a really good album. The songs are really well crafted and catchy as hell.
This is Ozzy's first outing with new guitar player Gus G, and it produces arguably the best Ozzy Osbourne album since 1991s 'No More Tears'.
Admittedly, Ozzy's vocals aren't as strong as they used to be, but in some instances, this enables him to use more emotion in his performance. The guitar solos aren't as melodic as previous guitar players'. However, don't let these factors deter you from what is a class album. One worth buying.
Brilliant riffs. Melodic hooks. Thought provoking lyrics. What more could you want?

Put simply this album is way better than anyone could have expected: melodic, heavy, varied, contemporary.....and lots of songs. Not just screaming riffs, but songs! Despite personal reservations about Ozzy and Zakk parting ways it was clearly a wise move. As much as we all love Zakk, Ozzy was right: his solo material was becoming indistinguishable from BLS. So, it was critical that the replacement was right. Gus G has delivered. The guitar playing is exciting, melodic, brutally heavy but ....Ozzy; as in Rhoads-era Ozzy, early Zakk-era Ozzy and maybe even the best bits of Jake E Lee-era Ozzy.

But, perhaps more importantly so has Kevin Churko delivered. This album sounds like a labour of love. It's the songs, melodies and arrangements that make this album so repeatedly rewarding.

If you're a fan of well-constructed, exciting and heavy songs with blistering guitar work, buy this album. It'll make you smile and marvel in equal measure.....how does Ozzy do it?

Format: Audio CD
......It from the roof tops Ozzy has made an album that you might actually want to listen to more than once!!count em its nearly 20 years since his last classic disc 'No More Tears' and another 10 prior to that with the ist two Blizzard Of Ozz albums,three classic albums in nearly 3 decades is not good enough,however we are a patient lot,rock fans,at last he has brought forth a quality disc.

Opening with the thundering 'Let It Die' your immediately struck with how good Ozzy sounds and new guitarist Gus G lets rip all over this track and indeed the album showing how good a guitarist he is,a fresh sound for a fresh start?,love that Sabbath riff in the last part of the track,next up is the superb,instantly stuck in your head,'Let Me Hear You Scream' with its insanely singable chorus before the heavy gothic sounds returns with the brooding 'Soul Sucker' (Sharon? perhaps),in truth this is the best opening to an Ozzy disc for years.

The pace drops a little with 'Life Wont Wait' with plaintive Ozzy vocals which reminds me of Mama.. from 'No More Tears' . The next 3 tracks arent as immediate but with repeated listens will grow on you the best being 'Diggin Me Down'.

Like most Ozzy fans im always lookin to him to have little references to Sabbath and indeed a previous reviewer noted the little classical intros as being reminiscent of the sabbath days but i wonder 'Am I Going Insane?' at the start of the excellent 'Time'- is that Bill Ward ? i hear ooh oohing(a la 'Its Alright' from Technical Ectacy) at the start ha ha.The class continues with the menacing 'I Want It More' and the less threatening 'Latimers Mercy' before closing with the short 'I Love You All' which suspiciously sounds like a goodbye,i hope not, this is his best release for some time,try it you wont be disappointed

I heard this album first on a plane, I was never running to a CD shop as fast as when I got off the plane that day. The CD cover would imply that you'll be listening to an over-engineered set of songs by someone who is slowly becoming a parody of himself. But don't judge too quickly. This is a great album. And Ozzy is a great songwriter.

Another surprising thing is the musicianship of the entire band. There is no weak link. Ozzy is in top form and so is the rest of the guys. I was getting irritated by Zakk's repetitive guitars, the change in guitarist is very refreshing. And the new line-up sounds like they've played together since forever.

The album has just the right balance of melodic and heavy songs, dark and emotional lyrics, references to Ozzy's past music and new ideas.

From the latest albums I love Down to Earth and don't like Black Rain, I love all of Ozzy's older albums. I won't be telling you that Scream is similar to any of the previous albums. I'm learning to accept what an artist creates and let it influence me - I will listen to it the odd time or often. And this album I listen to very often.

Get it, listen to it, enjoy it. And big WELL DONE to Ozzy for this masterpiece.

Well, at least, I thought I hated Ozzy Osbourne....
Not having really listened to much of OO's music since his Sabbath and early solo days, I thought that he had very much become a parody of a rock star and his interview ramblings not exactly gaining headline news either.
So, why did I even give this album any listening time - simple, a friend lent me the album and insisted that "you'll love it!" - therefore on went the album with me very much in my "I hate Ozzy" mood, but from the opening lines of Let It Die, right through to the closing "farewell" track, I was captivated!
Don't get me wrong, I am still not a fan of the huge backlog of material that Ozzy has put out, but this album is captivating, driving rock with some very funny lyrics to throw into the bag. I do also agree with comments elsewhere that the album is lacking in dynamics in that everything is stuck in the middle with very little treble or bass response - but who cares...this is another great album to stick on loud to annoy the 'Hood - particularly the already mentioned Let It Die, the single: Let Me Hear You Scream, Soul Sucker and Crucify - if this really is his SwanSong, then, IMHO, he goes out on a (relative) high!
