    To me, after Diary, Ozzy became sort of cartoonish. The songs, while cool, were more straight ahead rock vs. the classical structure of his previous solo work. Randy didn’t sound like an American guitarist to me; for one, he had a great vibrato and boundless technique. Razor edge riffing. Those neoclassical runs in tunes like Mr Crowley, Revelation, SATO and DOAM were just out of this world.

    Ozzy didn't rerecord everything. Check out the Cleveland 81 boot that is the Tribute concert. You'll be amazed how much is Ozzy that night. I'm talking 95% of it. They only swapped Randy's spotlight solo out for Montreal and fixed one note on Crazy Train intro. The Cleveland boot (radio show) is killer. Its all way more raw sounding. When they remixed it for release they added a lot of reverb and broadened the sound, really pulled down the mid range.

    Anyway, knowing all this made me enjoy Tribute that much more.

    Yes, Bark at the Moon has too much cliched filler for me

    I think Ozzy still had a bit of the scary Ozzy in Bark but it was completely gone with Ultimate. To me was his Black album where he simply changed into corporate Ozzy. That said, that's how music was going. I really love hard rock from about 80 to 84. Still had an organic rock vibe. Then about 85 it went to shit with the wet sound, compression gated snares, etc. Even happeneed to VH. Much prefer the production before 5150 to post even as crystal clear Balance is.

    Don't forget the over used reverse reverb on snare drums, and of course producers forgetting there were bass players in a band and a kick in drum kits.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Killer of Giants has a quasi-classical guitar intro.

    He was scary AF. The cover of Diary haunted my childhood and the "Bark at the Moon" video didn't help! That crazy smile and those crazy eyes...
