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...

Let's face it, Bark At The Moon is, right next to The Ultimate Sin, considered to be Ozzy's weakest achievement to date. I personally can't see the reason behind that statement, as Bark At The Moon is one of Ozzys most fast-paced-rock-like album I've ever heard.
In fact, I remember I hated Ozzy long ago, actually thinking that songs like Crazy Train and Mama Im Coming Home were boring, until I heard Bark... which I thought was harder and faster than anything I used to call "Heavy" and immediately started to listen to it at the loudest volume possible. I would later buy it, listen to all the songs in it, and give the others ozzman albums a chance. I was amazed how this album turned out to be quite different from the average heavy rockers you can buy everywhere, with both melodic both heavy songs (featuring keyboards to add a goth atmosphere to the background) and how it never really became popular. True, this album really wasnt something the fans were expecting to hear later, but thats because Ozzy had to move on due to circunstances (Randys death for instance) while the fans kept theyre Randy Rhoads fanatism. Wheter or not this album reaches Ozzys standards its a good thing to discuss, however one way or the other this album is still pretty famous in the "metal-community", (more than many fans think) and there is a reason for that.
Unfortenately, Ozzy himself doesn't see this album with very good eyes nowadays (the madman cant stand an album which he isnt praised for right at its release) and decided to mix it up a little to try and make this album a little more "suitable" for his taste.

First of all Jake E. Lee is an awesome guitar player. Jake was not the problem with this album, it was Ozzy.
It hit Ozzy like a ton of bricks when Randy Rhodes died, and why shouldn't it? The world will never know of Randy's true potential to the musical world. He wanted to do so much more with his guitar. But back to the album.....
This is the one album in Ozzy's career when Sharon controled everything. Ozzy probably didn't even know any of the songs until he started singing them in the studio. He was seriously messed up on drugs, alcohol, depression, etc. To this day I remember reading in Hit Parader back in the mid-80's that Ozzy called this album 'weak'. That's an understatement. The title track is a classic and kicks ass, but what about the rest of the album? Ever hear Ozzy sing any of these other songs live in the last 20 years? Hell no. It's mostly fluff material with waaaaaaaaaaay to much keyboard and synthesizer work. I mean c'mon, sometimes you'd think this music was written for ELO, Asia, or REO Speedwagon.
Hey I'm a big Sabbath and Ozzy fan, but this CD doesn't see the light of day too much. I think once he got his head back he was able to record 'The Ultimate Sin' with a much heavier sound.

[This review is for the original recording only - not that godawful 2002 remixed one. Amazon can't seem to decide which page is for which edition.]
Following the death of guitarist Randy Rhoads, Ozzy found himself in the same situation he was faced with after getting booted from Black Sabbath - Should I quit making music now, or should I find a way to go on? Fortunately for us, the Ozzman chose the latter. He recruited guitarist Jake E. Lee (later of Badlands) to fill Randy's void. In addition, drummer Tommy Aldridge and bassist Rudy Sarzo (who, like Randy, came from Quiet Riot) joined the band. In 1983, one of heavy metal's golden years, Bark At The Moon was recorded. The album gets extremely mixed reviews amongst Ozzy fans. How do I feel the album measures up? Read on and you shall see.
Bark at the Moon - The opener is a good, solid rocker. It's an excellent track, but sadly, it ended up being THE ONLY big hit to emerge from this album.
You're No Different - A slow and gloomy rocker. When it comes to the slow and gloomy, who better to sing than Ozzy? Why this masterpiece never became a hit is beyond me!
Now You See It, Now You Don't - One of the weaker tracks featured on this album, it just sounds weird to me. It's not bad, though.
Rock & Roll Rebel - This one is pretty generic as far as Ozzy rockers go, but for the most part, that's a GOOD thing, since Ozzy's so-called generic rockers put tracks by most musical artists to shaem
Centre of Eternity - One of the album's two masterpieces. This one starts off with bells chiming and a holy chant - but then Lee begins playing faster and heavier than ever before. Combine that with Ozzy's vocals, and you've got a winner!
So Tired - A slow, ultra-melodic ballad.
