Album Review: “Blizzard of Ozz” Ozzy Osbourne


Blizzard_of_ozz

“Blizzard of Ozz” is probably one of the greatest heavy metal albums to own.  After being fired from Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne went on to test out what he could do as a career.  Having released “Blizzard of Ozz” in 1980, the 35th anniversary is hitting this year.  “Blizzard of Ozz” is probably one of the greatest heavy metal albums to own.  Randy Rhoads and Ozzy all slam music in songs like “Crazy Train,” “Mr Crowley,” “Suicide Solution,” “Goodbye to Romance,” and “No More Movies.”  Rhoads was known for his shredding in “Crazy Train” and “Mr Crowley,” which has become one of the greatest Ozzy Osbourne hits.  Probably the most interesting song in this album is “RR,” although it not as fast when compared to Eddie Van Halen’s shred instrumental piece “Eruption.”  Even then, “RR” is a unique song proving Rhoads would be an influence for the next wave of musicians like Rusty Cooley and Alex Skolnick.
