Bark At The Moon,
This review is from: Bark At The Moon (Audio CD)
It's not as if Ozzy Osbourne had nothing to live up to when he released 'Bark at the Moon' - his third solo album - in 1983. Its predecessors ('Blizzard of Ozz' and 'Diary of a Madman') were both excellent albums, establishing Osbourne as an artist in his own right and arguably both qualifying as classics.
'Bark at the Moon' may not possess the brilliance of these albums, but it's still very good and obviously one that should be in your Ozzy collection. The title track is a good example of Osbourne's pop sensibilities even if they seem at odds with the beastly album cover. 'Waiting for Darkness' is another truly well-crafted song and one of the best on the album, which may hold a few pedestrian tracks, but certainly no duds.
So not as good as his earlier albums, but an album that he hasn't really surpassed since.
