Ozzy at his best..........,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bark at the Moon (Audio CD)
Bark At The Moon has always been my own personal favourite when it comes to Ozzy's albums. It is also the first album to feature Jake E Lee on lead guitar and you can tell when you listen to the music that Ozzy had a bigger influence on this album than he did on the others when Randy was on lead guitar. All the tracks on the album are heavy metal classics that will soon have you head bangin' way to some simply great music. The opening track, Rock 'N' Roll Rebel, is one of the best tracks Ozzy has written and perhaps it is written with tongue in cheek about the great man himself and his rise to fame. Bark At The Moon, Spiders and Waiting For Darkness also deserve a special mention for the shear inventiveness of some of the music and it was nice to see Ozzy experimenting with keyboards on some of the tracks. There is a very nice ballad on this album, So Tired, and it makes a change to hear Ozzy write some slow beautiful music. If you are a true Ozzy fan then this album is simply a must for your collection as in my humble opinion it is his best work to date.

It's not a pirate version. Rock 'n' Roll Rebel is the opening track on the original 1983 UK vinyl release. Note that this review is from September 2000 so it could be in relation to the vinyl version. Took me a bit to get used to the different running order when I bought the remastered CD version in 1995. There is also the issue of the 'remixed' 2002 version that contains the bonus track 'One Up the B Side'. I prefer the 1995 version that is closer to the original mix but it's a great sounding album on either version.

Jake E Lee and Bob Daisley wrote the music for this album.
