Product Description

Amazon.ca

Blizzard of Ozz, the first solo effort by the former lead singer of Black Sabbath, became a classic, due in large part to Osbourne's partnership with the late Randy Rhoads. The most immediately recognizable song is "Crazy Train," whose distinctive riff has made it a staple of rock radio. "Mr. Crowley" and "Suicide Solution" generated considerable controversy, which is equivalent to good press when it comes to heavy metal. Other strong tracks include "Revelation (Mother Earth)" and the opening song, "I Don't Know." This 2001 reissue includes the bonus tracks "You Lookin' at Me Looking You." While even heavy-metal listeners haven't always taken Osbourne seriously, his influence on the genre has been considerable. Blizzard of Ozz demonstrates why Ozzy commands lasting respect. --Genevieve Williams

Format: Audio CD
Buy the original mix of these early Ozzy albums, not these 2002 remixes/remasters. So the story goes, Sharon was a little ticked when bassist Bob Daisley, and drummer Lee Kerslake, wanted royalties for the songs they wrote. For shame! Casual Oz-fans don't know this, but the diehards do: Daisley and Kerslake (especially Daisley) were major songwriters for this band. Sharon had then-current Ozzy members Mike Bordin (Faith No More) and Rob Trujillo (Suicidal Tendencies) re-record the bass and drums.

Sharon's pettiness has gone as far as purposely mis-spelling names of musicians she has disputes with. Witness "Bob Daisy" (Daisley) and "Phil Susan" (Soussan) appearing on Ozzy reissues. Pathetic, Sharon.

The original versions and the 1995 remasters do contain the original bass and drum parts. They are not hard to find. They are not even hard to find at good prices. They are also easy to spot. The original issue CDs on Sony have a white spine with red text. The 1995 remasters have a little tiny picture of the cover within a coloured square that says OZZY. Both sound fine and are superior to the 2002 remix.

Take a stand. Don't buy this. There's no reason to. Yeah, there's the bonus track, "You Lookin' At Me Lookin' At You". It is a great song, as good as the album itself, but rather than buy this, just pick up a copy of the original 12" single. They too are not hard to find. If you buy this CD, you don't own the real Blizzard of Ozz.

Some people will say, "Oh come on, this album doesn't sound bad, it sounds fine to me." Sure, casual Oz-fans might not notice the difference because they don't know how it's supposed to sound. You can tell the difference. It doesn't sound right.

This just shows how dumb the Osbourne camp really is. They think that they can stick a new part over something and still catch the minute timing qualities of the original. It cannot be done to suit the discriminating ear of fans who have listened to these songs for 24 years. The fans know every single mistake and triumph within the music. This is a pathetic example of cutting off your nose to spite your face. The Osbournes simply didn't want to pay Lee or Bob their fair share. Contracts aside, they are the people along with Randy who created this music. In my opinion; Mr. Osbourne has made a mistake that unfortunately because of his massive wealth, he will not suffer from, and the only victims are the musicians who originally recorded. Maybe there is something deeper in the reasoning behind this pathetic, sloppy, awful, version of this music. Well obviously the points are, save your money, and go to garage sales and second hand record stores to find the original if you must have it. I fortunately borrowed a copy from a friend and didn't buy it.

It's been said before, it will be said again: DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME listening to this re-recorded trash. The original is, in my opinion, a work of the greatest brilliance, full of energy and spirit and perhaps one of the greatest rock albums of all time.
Too bad it's been discontinued and replaced by this garbage. The re-recorded bass and drums sound awful, thick, ridiculous. Blizzard and Diary of a Madman have been ruined, and all that is left of their memory is the 1995 remaster. Hope somebody gets the clue and brings it back. This is no longer music. Removing Daisley and Kerslake from the CD is an offence to the fans, the art, and the ears. It's kind of like if Black Sabbath went back and changed all of Ozzy's vocals for Ronnie James Dio's. Why?!?!?
Ozzy, your music was the best. Please give it back.

Ozzy Osbourne should be ashamed of this release -- editing out the original drum and bass tracks and having them re-recorded. This is therefore an entirely different album than the one released over 20 years ago. And the reason for Ozzy's changes don't even have to do with quality -- instead, they're because of petty personal differences with Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley, the original musicians.
Some background: After firing Kerslake and Daisley in 1981 because they were too fat and thus looked like pirates (I'm not making that up), Ozzy Osbourne ended up in a royalties dispute with them. After settling with the record company in the mid '80s, Kerslake and Daisley sued Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in 1998. So the Osbournes responded by deleting Kerslake and Daisley from the first two Ozzy Osbourne solo albums -- just to spite them. Way to put the fans first!! Therefore, even if the performances were better on the new version (which is not the case), this album should be rejected on principle.
What's particularly ashame is how desperate the original is for a remaster; it sounds tinny and empty compared with newer CD recordings. Still, I'd recommend buying a used copy of that release instead. Ozzy Osbourne does not deserve a royalty for what he's done, and a used one will be cheaper for you, anyway.

It's been over a year since I bought this travesty, and time hasn't diminished my outrage over the sonic butchering this once-great record has received. Not only is the bass mixed in way too heavily and the drums too flat and out of time, but Randy Rhoads' guitar work too suffers from the bad remixing job performed on the original tracks. In the process of mixing out the original (and superior) bass tracks, many of Randy's guitar fills (parts dubbed under the lead guitar track, especially during solos and other parts to round out the sound), are either missing or abruptly cut off. Open chords, like those found near the start of "Crazy Train", come to abrupt stops, where before they would fade into the harmony between the bass line and the lead guitar line. As such, there is no sonic connection between the guitar and bass, resulting in a spare sound where the two instruments seem to compete instead of compliment. So much for preserving Randy Rhoads' legacy. The difference between this "remastering" and the original recording is like night and day to anyone who isn't tone-deaf to begin with. Avoid this release at all costs, and find youself a good used copy of the 1995 reissue, which preserved the craftsmanship of the talented artists who created this classic album.
