Heavy and light? Surely a contradiction!!
on 27 November 2001
How can it be?? How can one man be so brutally heavy one one disk (the live one) and get all fluffy and acoustic on the second?? Well, as punters who have bought the blistering "Alcohol fuelled Brewtality" release will tell you - it's possible!! Zakk Wilde's new cut pefectly accentuates the man behind Ozzy's greatest and heaviest sound. From the opener "All for you" to the thunderous closing of "The beginning..." this C.D. is just pure, raw, unadulterated ROCK AND ROLL!! If Zakk's picture isn't placed under the word "Rock" in the dictionary it will be to the deficit of all humanity and bloody rightly so! More pinched harmonics than you can shake a stick at, and his version of No More Tears makes the Ozzy version look like S club 7 by comparison. But what's this?? An acoustic second C.D?? Surely some mistake! However, amazing versions of Niel Young's Heart Of Gold and Sabbath's Snowblind done in original and uplifting ways that fully show Zakk's vocal talent and that the man can actually get through a song without squealing those strings. Also a wonderful version of The beginning...., and my personal fave Time Flies. Buy it now!
