Well, Ozzy has good lyrics and songs. All these tracks are Ozzy style! "Flying high again", "Over the Mountain" and "Believer" are very well done music. The message from Ozzy is definitely: be crazy. Diary of a Madman is the most craziest track I've Heard.

I listened to the original recording of this album until it disintigrated! All I have left is an old beat up audio cassette that I cherish like solid gold -- but it is running out of life. Who knew that in this day of remastering technology greed would destroy my hope of hearing some of the best heavy metal music ever recorded in it's original splendor! Mike Bordin's (replacement drums) rendition of Little Dolls is so pathetic that I had to turn it off half way through the song. Also, Mike Bordin's love with his symbol destroys Randy Rhoads' solo in S.A.T.O., which never failed to move me -- until now. What use to be an outstanding interplay between Randy Rhoads (lead guitar), Bob Daisly (bass), and Lee Kerslake (drums) throughout the album is now a discombobulated, unintelligible jumble. This album is the most insulting thing Ozzy could have done to Randy's memory! Hearing Randy's work, out of it's original context, diminishes the real beauty of what he did. The songs "Believer," "Tonight," "Little Dolls," and "S.A.T.O." are the worst casualties of this "remastering." I don't know what "possessed" Ozzy to cheat the artists who saved his career -- which most certainly would have been over if it were not for them. I can only hope that Ozzy will redeem himself and his respectability by releasing a remastered version of the real original! If he does not, this album will stand as an act of infamy for the ages!

The album isn't as good as Blizzard of Oz. It has a rough feeling to it. Flying High Again is my favorite Ozzy song by far. I have sat down tonight and picked out probably the 23 so far most influential albums I have heard. This is Ozzy's entry. First heard it at my best friend's house in the early 80's on a record player.

Ozzy's last stand with the late, great, Randy Rhoads. This record, although not the most polished record ever, catches what Randy Rhoads could do best: Play. Although the songs are not ''Classics'', like Crazy Train, but more are longwinded and epic, like the song bearing the title of the album. If you want to get your first hook on Ozzy, this is not the album to get. But if you know good music, this one's for you.
