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.

I have to admit that ever since I heard about special 30th Anniversary editions of Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman that were to be released shortly the release of Ozzy's tenth studio album, Scream, I've been anxious to see what would happen with those "special editions". The little note insert in the Scream album advertising Blizzard and Diary special editions claimed that the original musical performances had been restored, I could only hope so. I'm a huge Ozzy fan and feel that those two albums are sacred rock/metal albums, therefore the 2002 remasters sounded to me like someone butchered two of my favorite albums. Well friends, now that these new editions of those metal classics have been released I can safely say that these editions are actually worth buying. These editions sound great and I feel that one of the biggest travesty in rock n roll has been corrected at last, and maybe fans can forget all about the awful 2002 re-recorded tracks.

These songs sound better than ever, certainly much better than the 2002 re-recorded masters. Ozzy and Sharon did the right thing by reissuing Blizzard and Diary with the original musicians' parts left on, maybe a little late but better than never. I would be wasting time if I were to write about the songs here, "Crazy Train", "Mr. Crowley", "Suicide Solution" and others are rock'n'roll classics and Blizzard is an essential album for RNR/Metal collection.

The 2002 remasters are now only collector's items, in the future people may wonder about those remasters wanting to know why people were so upset with them in the first place (that's the only good thing I can say about owning them, oh and the liner notes were very nice).

Very good sound quality. It is always enjoyable to listen to old bands like this. This is definitely worth buying.

When Ozzy and Sharon first reissued this album (and Diary) with bonus tracks back 'round the turn of the millenium, it was a travesty. Y'see folks, Sharon's a great manager, there is no doubt out that. But she also holds legendary grudges. So when original Blizzard of Ozz members Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley had the audacity to sue the Osbournes for unpaid royalties, they responded by erasing their bass and drum parts on the last reissue, and having them replaced by Rob Trujillo and Mike Bordin. See my scathing review for details.

You can't mess with a classic (cough cough George Lucas) so I'm pleased to report that Ozz and Sharon have done the right thing, and reissued the original Blizzard of Ozz. It didn't sound right otherwise.

I've always loved Blizzard. My favourite Ozzy record? Yeah, this and Diary for sure. I still remember hearing these songs for the first time on Randy Rhoads Tribute, and thinking that Ozzy truly had an amazing catalogue of classic tunes here. Unfortunately I think the live recordings are superior. Randy's guitar had more bite on them. But you can't go wrong with Blizzard. Every song here -- every tune! -- is a classic! From the obvious classics ("Crazy Train", "I Don't Know", "Mr. Crowley") to the less familiar to the unitiated, this is just an awesome record. Written and produced by the quartet of Ozz, Randy, Lee and Bob, this was exactly what Ozzy needed to release after being sacked by the Sabs -- aggressive with stunning guitar, but a hell of a lot of melody. And while it is indeed a riffy album, it is different by a wide margin from his Sabbath origins.
