Ozzy Osbourne (No Rest For The Wicked) 1988





No Rest For The Wicked is the debut of Ozzy's longest tenured axe slinger Zakk Wylde. Returning on skins is Randy Castillo and long time Ozzy collaborator, Bob Daisley on Bass. Rounding out the album is John Sinclair on Keyboards. Geezer Bulter (Black Sabbath) would take over Bass on the accompanying tour as well as making appearances in the videos.

I like Zakk and this album, but it's not perfect. I think the problem I have at times with No Rest For The Wicked is that a few songs are interchangable because of how Zakk plays. By that, I mean he has a certain style of playing that resorts to certains licks and riffs over and over. Add that to a couple of songs that aren't strong to begin with, gives it a lower rating. If you have already listened to Zakk's playing style previously, you will know what I'm talking about. I think as great as songs like Miracle Man and Crazy Babies are, Zakk really gets to shine on the "slower" songs like Fire In The Sky and Hero because it forces him to change his approach to playing.

As for Ozzy, his voice sounds amazing here. He definitely needed to step up his game after going "pop" with The Ultimate Sin. The production of the album is also a huge step up with it's aggressive and crunchy sound.

The 2002 Remastered Edition comes with 2 bonus tracks: The Liar and Miracle Man (Live)

Fave Songs: Miracle Man, Crazy Babies, Breaking All The Rules, Fire In The Sky and Hero. MVP goes to Fire In The Sky

Album cover is cool.
