Album Review

Having been cleared earlier in the year in another lawsuit concerning the supposedly suicide-inducing subject matter of his music, Ozzy Osbourne reinvigorated his sound and expanded his following with his sixth studio album, No More Tears, in the fall of 1991. Finding more sympathetic producers in Duane Baron and John Purdell to replace Roy Thomas Baker (who had helmed his last effort, 1988's No Rest for the Wicked), collaborating with Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead on four songs, and retaining the services of guitarist Zakk Wylde, Osbourne brought his music into the 1990s. Songs like "Desire" and "S.I.N." had an energetic, contemporary metal sound, and Osbourne effectively changed gears to turn out gentle ballads like "Mama, I'm Coming Home," which gave him his first U.S. Top 40 hit on his own. Not cowed by his court cases, he wrote songs about child abuse ("Mr. Tinkertrain") and serial murder ("No More Tears") from the point of view of the criminals. But he also considered his own place in the general scheme of things in the tribute to the rock & roll lifestyle "Hellraiser" and the reflective "Road to Nowhere." It all made for an unusually broad range of material, and the album returned him to the Top Ten and multi-platinum status. The 2002 reissue adds two appropriate bonus tracks, "Don't Blame Me," which was the non-LP B-side to "Mama, I'm Coming Home," and "Party With the Animals," which appeared on the 1992 soundtrack to the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Both are powerful rockers, and they make the album an even stronger collection.

GREAT ALBUM

No More Tears is the greatest Ozzy album with Zach Wylde on guitar. Every song on this album is good especially the title track No More Tears, Road to Nowhere, Desire, and Hellraiser. There aren't many albums I know of that consist of this many great song on one CD.

A BEAST OF AN ALBUM

Although Blizzard Of Ozz is considered to be Ozzy's best album, I am forced to differ. Listen to this whole album and you'll see what I'm talking about. Every song on here is great from the lyrics, the harmonizing choruses, the crunching guitar riffs, and the blazing guitar solos. Even the ballads rock. "Mr. Tinkertrain" and "No More Tears" come down like a-bombs with their heavy, crunching guitar riffs. Songs like "I Don't Want To Change The World", "Desire", "S.I.N.", and "A.V.H." are fast paced rockers that never cease to amaze. "Mama, I'm Coming Home", "Time After Time", and "Road To Nowhere" are the kind of ballads that don't make you want to fall asleep, while "Hellraiser" serves as the colossal arena rocker that'll make the floor shake. "Zombie Stomp" is a cool song that seems to build up in intensity as the song progresses, starting out quite in the beginning and then really cranking it further on. The aggressive guitar riffs of "Don't Blame Me" and "Party With The Animals" prove that these are great bonus tracks. Basically what I'm saying is that THIS IS THE BEST FREAKIN' OZZY ALBUM!!! I guess the reason this album is such a well-kept secret because everyone overlooks it in favor of Blizzard Of Ozz (The only songs I really care for on that album is "I Don't Know" and "Crazy Train"). If everyone bought this album, they would immediately be blown away by this album's sheer power and awesomeness. You know what I say: "BUY THIS ALBUM NOW"

Though many bands have succeeded in earning the hatred of parents and media worldwide throughout the past few decades, arguably only such acts as Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, and Marilyn Manson have tied the controversial record of Ozzy Osbourne. The former Black Sabbath frontman has been highly criticized over his career, mostly due to rumors denouncing him as a psychopath and Satanist. Despite his reputation, no one could deny that Osbourne has had an immeasurable effect on heavy metal. While he...
