Jake's guitar playing and song-writing outshines his debut album with the Oz (Bark at the Moon). Ozzy's singing is classic 80s, and not dried-up-all-sounds-the-same of the late 90s and forward.
This was Ozzy at his best; I'm disappointed he fired Jake and brought on Zakk Wylde. Zakk is an incredible guitar player as well, but he doesn't have the feeling and versatility that Jake has - Zakk's solos are pretty predictable, actually.
The Ultimate Sin is a must for all Ozzy fans, and a must for all fans of excellent rock guitar.
It's Ozzy so of course it's a little heavier than your average hair metal band. I think the title track is a good example of that. The title track is a classic and doesn't give any sign about this album being a hair metal one. It is truly one of Ozzy's classics and I think most fans will agree with me on that one, the beginning's heavy drums with that crunchy guitar riff is memorable. The next song Secret Looser is another heavy track that's catchy and in some ways reflects all of us, one of the best songs on the album. Never Know Why sounds more like hair metal than the previous two songs, different I quite like it. Thank God for the Bomb on the other hand is my least favorite song and I just don't get it. Never is much better and the chorus is great, not great but a good song.
Lightning Strikes is a good song and get you in, another great song. Up next is what I can describe as perhaps my favourite Ozzy song ever; Killer of Giants. The song is much talked about and it just has to be heard to know what fans are talking about. It starts slowly with some great guitar work by Lee and just gets better from there.Read more ›

Ozzy is the godfather of metal, no denying it. this is one of his coolest albums. He went glam for this one (After all, this was 1986). it was a huge smash and I can see why. Read morePublished on April 29 2004 by HeadbangerDuh
Ozzy Osbourne is a legend not just in the metal world, but also in the entire music industry. Very few artists have managed to have the staying power which he has had. Read morePublished on April 24 2004 by Darrell B
I have a soft spot for The Ultimate Sin because it was the first Ozzy tape I bought right when it came out. Read morePublished on March 29 2004 by mwreview
