The Prince Reclaims His Throne

Older fans of Ozzy Osbourne won't be too surprised by the decidedly heavy tone of Ozzy's latest project, Black Rain. Those folks who only know the domesticated Ozzy from his MTV show will most likely view this album as a wake-up call. The loud reassurance of tunes like Not Going Away and I Don't Wanna Stop comes as a boot to the collective bottoms of younger rock bands that currently rule the airwaves. It reminds them that although he's getting a bit long in the tooth, Ozzy can still rock and probably will until the day he dies. The aforementioned tracks as well as 11 Silver,  Countdown's Begun, and Trap Door are all excellent rockers. Civilize The Universe, The Almighty Dollar, and Black Rain are nice mid-tempo rockers that hint at Ozzy's sound in the late 80's/early 90's. Two solid ballads are also included, the better of the two being Lay Your World On Me. 

Overall, Ozzy, Zakk Wylde, Mike Bordin and Blasko have put together an excellent set of tracks for Black Rain. There's no stopping the Ozzman any time soon as far as this album is concerned. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Ozzy's older work as well as fans of Black Label Society, hard rock of the 80's/90's and the kiddos who think Ozzy is nothing more than a burned-out rocker. Hide the Nickelback albums, boys, the prince has returned!
