I'VE FINALLY GOTTEN OFF MY PROCRASTINATING REAR AND BOUGHT A DVD PLAYER. This is the first DVD I've ever watched. Maybe it's time to change my nickname. (DVDiot_y2k?)
This is a disc of Ozzy's NO MORE TEARS (TOURS) tour. The selection of songs is a far superior to his more recent BUDOKAN disc. This was Oz back when he could still rock. Before the world saw him throwing a 4X2 (That's what we call them in NZ. "Don't ask me I don't know") through his neighbour's window, before he got drunk and attempted to take Lola the adorable bulldog for a walk; and before he more recently went on a burrito diet and was most memorably seen screaming at the sea to "EFF OFF!" when his attempts to build a campfire were continuously thwarted. This was Ozzy the Crown Prince Of Darkness, not the Clown Prince.
The selection of material is pretty good (SUICIDE SOLUTION, IRON MAN, SHOT IN THE DARK etc) but best of all is the original Sabbath line-up coming together at the end for renditions of BLACK SABBATH and CHANGES. It's worth seeing this for those 2 tracks alone. The Sabs sound tighter and heavier than Ozzy's band, but really how could you expect Zakk Wylde (though a great guitarist) to upstage Tony Iommi, metal's pioneering riffmaster and one of the finest rock/metal guitarists EVER? If you must get an Ozzy concert DVD get this one, and if you must see BUDOKAN try renting it. This is far better value.
