Flying High Again: The World Greatest Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
It's safe to say that the most "tributized" gentleman in the realm of hard rock/heavy metal has been Ozzy Osbourne. Over the years, a continuous stream of releases by other artists covering either Black Sabbath or Ozzy's solo years has hit the racks, and the "2006 edition" was Flying High Again: The World's Greatest Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne. Whereas most of the other aforementioned Ozzy tributes generally featured newer acts reworking their favorite tracks, Flying High Again features mostly '80s-era rockers -- save for a few exceptions.

It's safe to say that the most "tributized" gentleman in the realm of hard rock/heavy metal has been Ozzy Osbourne. Over the years, a continuous stream of releases by other artists covering either Black Sabbath or Ozzy's solo years has hit the racks, and the "2006 edition" was Flying High Again: The World's Greatest Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne. Whereas most of the other aforementioned Ozzy tributes generally featured newer acts reworking their favorite tracks, Flying High Again features mostly '80s-era rockers -- save for a few exceptions. Interestingly, there are also some "Ozzy alumni" who drop by -- guitarist Brad Gillis who was a short-lived replacement for Randy Rhoads on a remake of "Over the Mountain," Motörhead's Lemmy tackling "Desire" a track he co-penned with Ozzy for his 1991 No More Tears release, and Lita Ford revisiting her Top Ten hit ballad originally a duet with Ozzy "Close My Eyes Forever." Other intriguing renditions include Dee Snider's "Crazy Train," a jazzy rendition of "Goodbye to Romance" by the Alex Skolnick Trio, and a downright hilarious rendition of "Revelation Mother Earth" by Novembers Doom whose vocals sound like the Cookie Monster eating the mike. But not all of the participants are metal veterans, as evidenced by the presence of Children of Bodom "Shot in the Dark" and Icarus Witch "S.A.T.O.," which features George Lynch on guitar. As with most tribute albums, Flying High Again: The World's Greatest Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne contains both peaks and valleys.
