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.
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'.

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?
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?
I would give this album 5 stars if it wasn't for the first track "let it die" this song does not sound like anything he has done before. when I first heard it I got extremely worried about how the rest of the album would turn out but every track after that is your standard ozzy rock.
Like ozzy osbourne? Then in highly recommend this.
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.
From the first track Let it die you can tell that ozzy is trying something different as while the guitar sounds a tad like zakk it does have a fresh new feel which is just what his music needed because personally i believe he needed a change.
Anyway next track Let me hear you scream has a blistering riff which really pulls you in and this is the first track in which you hear the refreshed ozzy vocals, I can honestly say i have not heard his voice sound this strong since black sabbath, He literally screams this song out "I'm your hangman!" and it sounds wonderful and powerful yet still remaining tuneful, Yes this is ozzy back at his best.
There are some huge monumental tracks on here which are very epic sounding, in particular Diggin' me down which starts with a classical guitar intro very similar to 70's sabbath which is further proof the direction for his music is changing,and this builds into a huge classic heavy metal track which will shake you out of your boots!.Read more ›

Really poor album. He should beg Bob Daisley to write him songs again like he did on all his classic albums.Published 13 months ago by Mr. Richard Rosson
