    Does anyone else love this song?

    I think it's incredible!!! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    This is my favorite Ozzy song, I especially love the bass intro, and the guitar solo is wicked!

    I wonder what Ozzy was thinking when he didn't include it on his Greatest Hits? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    I remember waiting patiently for Ozzmosis to come out. Very patiently. Then I heard Perry Mason on the radio before the release. I just didn't get it. And I still don't. I waited something like 2 months before I bought the album, just because I didn't like that single.

    It's a good tune. Not my favorite Ozzy song though---that honor goes to "Over The Mountain" followed closely by "Mr. Tinkertrain"

    "Over the Mountain" is one incredible song! I love this one...especially the way Tommy A. rips into the beginning with those thunderous drums! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I also dig "Perry Mason" quite a bit, albeit "Ozzmosis" does show a more mature sound for the Oz-man.

    I really like "Miracle Man" and "Bark at the Moon" too.

    Sorry - but I think that song is terrible, as is all of Ozzmosis. Ozzy makes mediocre music when he's running the show - he needs an Iommi or a Rhoads to create the music IMO. Zakk and Jake Lee are good guitar players but very average songwriters, and neither of them were really playing their natural style with Ozzy.

    Good tune, not his best but still good. I like Zakk's playing. That mofo can sure bend them strings.

    It's not a bad tune, though I wouldn't put it anywhere near the top of my favorite Ozzy songs list. That album is probably the weakest Ozzy album that I have, though No Rest For the Wicked also has some really low material.

    I saw Ozzy on the Ozzmosis tour, and DAMN was it loud. Too loud really; it took 20 or 30 seconds to figure out what each song was that he was playing due to the volume. Zakk Wylde didn't play on that tour.

    I'm glad you also like it Van Gully. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I have Perry Mason live from the Ozzfest CD, it was the only tune that Ozzy contributed to that CD, so I am obviously not the only one that thinks that it is Ozzy's best song! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    My secound favorite Ozzy song is No More Tears. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Call me crazy or even call me train, but I don't think CT is that great a song either. Just about my least favourite from the first two Ozzy albums. Dunno why, just a bit to jolly and trite for my tastes compared to masterpieces like Diary, Suicide Solution,
    Revelation Mother Earth and even Flying High Again which is in a similar vein.

    I think Perry Mason is an awesome song, probaly the best on Ozzmosis. Doesn't compare to the top songs of Ozzy's early solo career but is overall a great hard rocker. I also like the entire Ozzmosis album a lot, almost every song is solid.

    You have good taste in music Dan Halen! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Although, I prefer Ozzy's later solo albums over his eary ones. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    A good tune, but definitely not one of my favorites by Ozzy. I overwhelmingly prefer his early solo work, with the incomparable Randy Rhoads on guitar. I think that, all things considered, Ozzy's worst is way way better than some other artists best.

    I do like "The Ultimate Sin", and I happen to think that "Ozzmosis" is a better CD than "No Rest" or "No More Tears", but I find things on all of them that I like.

    I am an Ozzy freak!!!

    If I had to go to a deserted island and take two Ozzy cd's with me, the ones I would pick would be "Diary Of A Madman" and "Tribute". "Diary" is a phenomenal work; a serious hard rock/metal masterpiece, and "Tribute" is the very best live rock album I have ever heard in my life...

    I hadn't listened to the album in awhile, so with all this Ozzy talk, I pulled out Ozzmosis tonight to give it another listen. It's much worse than I remember.

    Ghost Behind My Eyes, Thunder Underground, Tomorrow, Denial, My Little Man and My Jekyll Doesn't Hide are all pretty poor songs. There's some really bad lyrics in there.

    Perry Mason, See You On The Other Side, and Old LA Tonight are good songs. I Just Want You is okay.

    I'd definitely say that this is the weakest Ozzy album I've got, and I think I have all of the studio albums. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Just my opinion of course. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
