Album Review

Theoretically, a greatest-hits collection should be an easy job for someone like Ozzy Osbourne, whose career always thrived on singles. However, this is not the case, as Ozzman Cometh proves. While the compilation does boast some of his biggest hits, including "Crazy Train," "Goodbye to Romance," and "Shot in the Dark," some of his most memorable songs, such as "I Don't Know," "Flying High Again," and "Miracle Man," are surprisingly missing. Instead of extra tracks from his 15-year career, listeners aren't even given definitive Ozzy — the album is unfortunately overshadowed with Black Sabbath basement tapes, including "Fairies Wear Boots" and "War Pigs." Although Osbourne never failed to put Sabbath hits into his live shows and albums, the idea that re-recorded material from his former band replaces some of his best songs is a little depressing. The album also includes one new track, "Back on Earth," which continues the musical setting similar to Ozzmosis (where Osbourne counts on synthesizers instead of guitars). Despite its flaws, however, Ozzman Cometh certainly delivers a good collection of hits, making it and Tribute the only necessary Ozzy albums for casual fans. [The 2002 reissue excludes the four-track bonus disc that was included with the original printing of the album.]

very nice

this album is very good except i have a couple of complaints. first off the basement tapes, i personally think they arent all that great. There was a couple of awesome songs i feel that they left out. such as Shot in the Dark. Next to that its a decent album consisting of ozzy's greatest. I feel that you should probably just buy the songs you like considering youll save money.

Just Amazing

On of my favorite ozzy albums its got all i need on it like no more tears and Parnoid also war pigs i wish it would of had iron man but it still had crazy train which made up for it so if you are an ozzy fan i would buy this album

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...
