Ozzy Osbourne-bark At The Moon-rock N Roll Rebel-slow Down- New Sealed:
Ozzy Osbourne, Bark At The Moon
Back of CD:
"With the aftershock of Randy Rhoads's death still reverberating, Ozzy recruited LA-based guitarist Jake E. Lee and attempted to pull himself together to write and record this third studio album."
"It was tough because my dreams had been shattered," states Ozzy, reflecting on Randy's tragic death in a senseless plane accident. Nevertheless, Ozzy preserved, bursting into the studio with his new line-up.
Released in 1983, Bark At The Moon seemed to encapsulate the madness of King Ozz perfectly. As another multi-platinum album, the results bark for themselves."
Others Have Said:
"Bark at the Moon was the one album I used to listen to when I was a child...there was also "The Ultimate Sin" and "No Rest for the Wicked". BatM is naybe the creepiest album that Ozzy has made. The opener "Bark at the Moon" promises lot...great lyrics, good guitar riffs, great vocals etc. "You're No Different" is a little bit more peaceful song but the lyrics are just great...there's also some sentences from the Bible. "Rock 'n Roll Rebel", "Waiting for the Darkness", "Now You See It (Now You Don't)" are great hard rock songs...Ozzy sings in a very creepy voice. "Centre of Eternity" was used to be called as "Forever" but it was changed. It starts when the bells toll...but for whom they toll...???? There also a peaceful hard rock ballad "So Tired" in which Ozzy tells that he is sick and tired of this system. This album reminds one of my dearest rock albums ever. It is one of Ozzy's bests. Stars: Bark at the Moon, So Tired, Rock 'n' Roll Rebel "
"This is the third edition of his third non-Sab studio album, but the first without Randy Rhoads, replaced by Badlands' Jake E. Lee. The first was released 1983 on CBS Associated, then in 1995 on Epic with "Spiders in the Night", now this one has new artwork and "One Up the B-Side". I have the original CD, and the bonus tracks on a bootleg tape. Sharon must have had these reissues out to tie in with the show. If you ask me, Kelly's Madonna cover mirrors former next-door neighbour Pat Boone's daughter Debby with "You Light Up My Life".
Features The Following Songs:
1.Bark At The Moon- 10/10 Very good fast paced tracks with a heavy bridge before Jake's amazing solo. the second solo is great too but it should have been longer like the live version. The synths work very well in this too.
2.You're No Different- 9/10 A good power ballad. Some cool synths on it and good lyrics. The solo is good but this song isn't one of the best on the album. Still a good song though.
3.Now You See It (Now You Don't)- 10/10 A great song. The main riff is one of my favorites and Ozzy's vocals sound great. A good solo too but not one Jake's explosive solos. Cool synths too.
4.Rock N Roll Rebel- 10/10 One of the best tracks on the album. A very cool riff and some good lyrics in this track. Jake throws in an excellent solo as well. The second solo is amazing too.
5.Centre of Eternity- 10/10 Here's a very good track that opens up with monks chanting before the keyboards come in and then the whole band and this is probably the fastest track Ozzy's ever done! Jake throws in a blazing solo aswell to add to this track. Amazing drumming too!
6. So Tired- 10/10 A good power ballad. The mix of synths and piano sounds excellent. This was one fo the big hits off this album. Jake E. Lee's solo is great and full of emotion. There is actually some Beatles influence here.
7. Slow Down- 10/10 Another fast paced tracked thanks to Ozzy's great rythym section. Jake throws in a very good fast solo aswell to add to this track.
8. Waiting For Darkness- 10/10 This is a great way to end the album. This track is probably the best on the album with some great lyrics aswell. Jake E. Lee has the perfect guitar sound for this track. The only thing missing if one of Jake's explosive solos. Anyway this song is a classic.
This is a great album.... This album sounds like a mix of Ozzy's first 2 albums, The Ultimate Sin, Van Halen, Motley Crue and some older 60's music. If you like Ozzy or just 80's music in general than get this. The band is: Ozzy Osbourne- Vocals Jake E. Lee- Guitar Tommy Aldridge- Drums Bob Daisley- Bass Don Airey- Keyboards"
