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.

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.

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...

[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.
