Live at Budokan [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
After Speak of the Devil, Tribute, Just Say Ozzy, Live & Loud, the Ozzfest collections, and both Osbourne-fronted Black Sabbath live discs, one would think that Ozzy had exhausted his concert-album appeal. But due to the success of his reality TV show, Osbourne once again decided it was time for another live album. Although Osbourne's live performances were still rock-solid during the recording of this tour, Live at Budokan seems mighty excessive. The only positive thing about yet another one is to hear the intense live work of Zakk Wylde, who has been the cornerstone of Osbourne's sound longer than any other sideman he has ever worked with.

But due to the success of his reality TV show, Osbourne once again decided it was time for another live album. Although Osbourne's live performances were still rock-solid during the recording of this tour, Live at Budokan seems mighty excessive. The only positive thing about yet another one is to hear the intense live work of Zakk Wylde, who has been the cornerstone of Osbourne's sound longer than any other sideman he has ever worked with. His squealing leads and chunky guitar sound great here, displaying a talent for pure heavy metal that few other players could live up to in 2002. But at the same time, you can hear his amazing guitar work on at least two other Ozzy live discs, and the songs that are new to this environment i.e., most of the first half of the album are all taken from Down to Earth, which he plays on in the first place. This album sounds fine, is packaged nicely, and would make a nice addition to any Ozzy completist's collection. But Tribute has an equally brilliant guitarist showcased in one of his finest moments, and Live & Loud has the emotional burden of Ozzy thinking it was his last tour, making either of them preferable to this disc. Live at Budokan is nothing to avoid, but there are much better collections available featuring the same rock & roll madman in more spirited days.

    Paranoid, Paranoid, Paranoid...!

    'Live at Budokan' was disappointment: again old ozzy songs + Paranoid. Yeah Paranoid again. But there was good things: three tracks from Down to Earth but where are the songs from Ozzmosis. It has to say Ozzy is live as good as he was during Live & Loud but why record same live songs again? Ozzy has many good songs that haven't been released as live.

    Almost Perfect

    Ozzy Osbourne's Live At Budokan is a good effort for an aging rocker. This album includes some of the major highlights of his solo career. Expect obscene language. (Make sure your parents aren't around when you listen to it!) There are many pros to this album. This is the first album that includes live recordings of Junkie, Gets Me Through, and That I Never Had. It was also nice to get a sneak peak behind the scenes. (The disk features a bonus computer exrtra!) The cons do not over weigh the pros however. As I said before, he is an aging rocker and his voice is not as strong as it used to be, so do not expect a flawless disk. Plus, if you will notice, the DVD contains Sucide Solution while the CD does not. It would be nice if they put that song on the CD as well. All in all, I think this CD would be a great addition to add fans collection.

    It's just a show, so...Show Me the Ozzy!

    I admit it...I thought Ozzy had all but retired (except for the annual fiesta of course) until a certain TV extravaganza made him a household name like never before. So, after being exposed to the Osborne FAMILY album I thought, why not? Glad I did. This is a concise 60 minute concert take of a metal-man ageing more gracefully than most ever did or will. I too adored the Randy (RIP) years, and after a few later FM hits, just let Ozzy slip off my map. He's Baaaaaaak! Don't compare this disc to any previous studio or live effort, that's not the point. Just experience a great show for what it is ... delightfully mad! Read the song list, you will like them all. The guitar pryrotechnics are phenominal. Ozzy is in AMAZINGLY good voice compared to ANY of his contemporaries, honestly! And the bass and percussion are poundingly delightful. Now... there is also a short video (CDROM format) on this CD that's a commercial for the DVD release. Some may find it an annoyance, or clever marketing; it's both. But I did enjoy seeing a little snippet of the Osbournes in Japan (even Ozzy's son complaining about the skuzzy dinner plates at the buffet). It makes your enjoyment of this, in essence, concert ticket of a CD more worthwhile. I just would have preferred they used the nearly 20 minutes left blank on this CD (or occupied by video data) to include a couple of more songs. Ozzy, people buy the DVD for pictures and the CD for (more) sound! But it's such a great set and show, I'll forgive you...just this once. Note, the ''f'' word is used liberally even during the songs (and video), so get the clean (edited) version if you don't want to hear that. I got the down and dirty version ON PURPOSE; it's not metal without (to quote an old Star Trek movie) ''colorful metaphors.'' Pick up this disc and hear what a TIGHT SET is all about!

    The Ozzfan Speaketh

    After 30+ years in the music business the Ozzman still has it. Sure, he shuffles around like an old geezer but he can still give the fans what they want. I hope Zakk Wylde is around for a long time. I enjoyed the ''newcomers''' performances...Robert Trujillo's bass-playin' and Mike Bordin's drum-smackin'. I know it's hard to compare this album to his previous live efforts, but I heard what I expected from a 50-something-year-old father of three (four? five? how many kids does he have?) The only con- I wanted to hear more Sabbath tunes!
