I think there might be a thread on this, but anyway..


Heard this on the way home from work today.

/sadface

This is ridiculously shitty. I love Gus G's playing, but it doesn't fit here, and the songwriting is uh, well.. Listen to it.

Ozzy's voice sounds pretty good considering though.

From what I remember hearing, the music was already written save the solos. Plus, I think he was probably on a short leash.

I know that guy can play. His past albums with Mystic Prophesy and Dream Evil can show that.


But yes, I concur with you Chris. I was kinda bored with the tune to be honest :/

I think the same was basically true with Zakk on Black Rain. When Ozzy does an album nowadays, he has half of L.A. trying to write non-shitty songs for him, and it doesn't seem to be working.

Ozzy's best work happened before he became a superstar, when he had a real band around him--first Sabbath, and then the original Blizzard of Ozz band. Even his later bands in the '80s were still somewhat cohesive that way, but all of his work after No More Tears has been producer-driven crap. I don't believe that good metal can be written and performed by committee; you need a real band with chemistry.

Oh, and don't kid yourself about the vocals, there's probably more auto-tune going on here than on one of those shitty Ke$ha songs.

I was going to respond with "I am disappoint" but I'm really not. I expected him to suck worse, actually. Yeah, he's Ozzy, but he's been singing for at least a zillion years, and I'd bet he's at least partially deaf now. It stands to reason he wouldn't sound great. Hell, if anything, I am... almost pleasantly surprise :rofl:
