4.0 out of 5 stars Ozzy Barks At The Moon Aug. 21 2011
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
After two albums Blizzard Of Ozz and Diary Of A Madman, Ozzy's guitarist Randy Rhoads died in a tragic plane crash. Following the death of Randy, Ozzy was left in shock after all its hard to believe when it's someone close to you. The thing is that even after the record company gave him some time to mourn Randy, a week after his funeral he was back to doing music. Randy's replacement would be the short-lived Brad Gillis, and despite being good his only work with Ozzy would be 1982's Speak Of The Devil a live album featuring only Black Sabbath material. That's when guitarist Jake E. Lee stepped in. Lee had been around for some time playing in bands like Ratt and others and was given a big chance with Ozzy. In 1983 Bark At The Moon was released, it would be different from the first two due to Randy's death and Jake's arrival.

The album starts with the classic title track, perhaps his creepiest song. This song is one of my favourites in Ozzy's career and probably my favourite on the album too. A dark and heavy track featuring great guitar work by Lee. The video for this song was awesome! You're no different to me follows; it's my favourite song besides the title. Ozzy sounds inspired and it features some superb lyrics. Now You See It (Now You Don't) is a nice rocker with a catchy chorus. Rock N' Roll Rebel is Ozzy addressing the ones who claim he is satanic; "they say I worship the devil, they must stupid or blind, I'm just a Rock n' Roll rebel". Once again great guitar by Lee and Ozzy delivers his message.

Centre Of Eternity starts with some church chant that sounds very creepy and then kicks into the song. It's fast paced and energetic, one of the best of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bark At The Remix (Buyer Beware!) June 19 2011
Format:Audio CD
Much like Diary and Blizzard, when Bark At The Moon was reissued in 2002, it was also remixed. People who own my preferred edition of this beloved Ozzy classic have noticed the unadvertized remix. (There was no sticker on the cover indicating this album was remixed and it was also ignored in press releases.) Why this was done is a mystery to me, I've never read anything about it. All I can tell is that you'll notice is particularly on Jake E. Lee's solos and some keyboard parts as well. Maybe Ozzy thought it sounded dated?

Either way, the original mix of Bark is one of my favourite Ozzy albums. There are some lesser-known classics here equally good as anything on Diary or Blizzard. For example, "Rock And Roll Rebel". This riff monster sounds like the natural successor to some of the best moments on Diary. There are a ton of great songs here. "You're No Different" which is one of those great Ozz slow burners is another one. I've always liked "Slow Down" and of course "Waiting for Darkness". Ozzy had gothed out his sound a lot more on this album and you'll hear a lot more keyboards and strings.

As metioned, the remix changes the sound of the album and swaps out solos here and there, so pick up one of the earlier CD editions if you can. The earlier CD edition contained the B-side "Spiders" (sometimes written as "Spiders In The Night") which is not one of Ozzy's better songs. It's an obvious B-side. Better because it's funnier is "One Up The B-Side" which makes its CD debut on this edition.

Now that Ozzy and Sharon have seen the light and finally reissued the original mixes of Blizzard and Diary, one can always hope for a long term Ozzy reissue program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Ozzy performance May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is surely the greatest Ozzy performance to date. His voice sounds amazingly divine, almost supernatural. The great guitar playing of Jake E. Lee and the musicianship of Don Airey add up to one of the greatest music experiences you can have. The unusual song So Tired will surely amuse you in an unexpected way but the album reaches it's peak at it's end, with the killer Waiting For Darkness, which is a reflexion on life's downsides. The bonus tracks on this new release are also not to be missed. Both songs catch up with the rest of the album and are much better than any recent material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Average Ozzy Album May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is kind of different than Ozzy's previous two or any to follow. It is very good though. It is a little more pop oriented, and a little more moody. Jake Lee's guitar playing is just as good as anything, though. Center Of Enternity is the best song on the album, and one of Ozzy's all-time best. Some lame songs, like So Tired keep this from being Ozzy's best album ever . I love all of it, though. The title track is one of Ozzy's most famous songs, and it is very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bark At The Moon "Remaster" April 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This review is of the second Bark At The Moon remaster, released in 2002 along side the rest of Ozzy's catalog predating Down To Earth. Though Blizzard and Diary feature new drum and bass parts, Bark At The Moon was completely remastered using the original session tapes.
Or was it...?
I bought Bark At The Moon when it came out, and it was a great recording and very influential in it's time. But Bruce Dickerson's remix is missing major signature solos in Rock N' Roll Rebel, both in the opening licks, and in the breaks. This is one of the most renowned tracks from Bark, delivered in an incomplete state on this "remaster!" The only explanation is that Jake E. Lee recorded his solos over the stereo master in the final hour, and they couldn't be extracted.
But it gets worse: You're No Different" was full of keyboards on the original recording, but they are super loud on this CD, drowning out the drums and guitar. It's as if Dickerson just ran the session tapes without checking the volume of individual instruments. It defies explanation, truly.
If you haven't heard Bark At The Moon before, you may not notice these omissions. You'll just think it's a record made on the rebound of Randy's death by a weaker band.
But Jake E. Lee held his own with Ozzy, and if you dig for earlier releases of this recording, you'll discover an album that stands up to Blizzard and Diary.
This is sonething else...
