I was a bit surprised to see a new release from Ozzy in my Yahoo Music Jukebox player this morning. New Ozzy? The dude can barely speak a single coherent sentence whenever I see him on TV the past years ... and he's still singing?
Yup, and surprisingly his voice is clear and strong.
The album is called Black Rain ... and I just had to go take listen. I've never been a huge Ozzy fan, but man can Zakk Wylde play some tasty licks ... and yes, I have a select very few Ozzy songs in my music library for the crunchy guitar riffs.
The first 2-3 songs are a nice guitar feast with Ozzy's typical "singing" ... some sweet-o guitar solos from Zakk. Once you've listened to the first 2 songs you've heard the rest of the album IMHO.
The beauty of Yahoo Music is that I can listen to this new Ozzy to satisfy my curiosity ... then never listen to it again ... all for the same $5/mo ;-)
500 Bonus Points for the person who can guess my favorite heavy metal group back in the mid-late 80's ... ONE GUESS ALLOWED PER DAY PER USER to make it fair.
Here's a fun link to the styles that were hip back in the 80's ... too funny! What was your favorite 80's look?
... long live ripped up acid washed jeans (pegged of course), mullets and high top sneakers! :-)
