The Ultimate Ozzy Album

(5 out of 5 stars)
"No Rest For The Wicked was the album Ozzy released in 1988, after the glam-influenced Ultimate Sin, and the commercial highpoint No More Tears. The album is heavy, with lots of screaming and crunching noises. I feel that it is Ozzy's best work. It was also his heaviest at the time. The album kicks off with Miracle Man, a great song with interesting lyrics. I like the way Ozzy's voice sounds in that one. Then come one of Ozzy's most underrated songs ever, Devil's Daughter. It is one of my favorites and nobody seems to like it. Then comes Crazy Babies, which is the famous song off this album, but I feel that it simply cannot match up to the other songs on the album. The song afterward is Breakin All The Rules, which is one of Ozzy's best ever songs. The chorus is simply awesome.The next song, Bloodbath In Paradise is good, too. Then comes the album's masterpiece: Fire In The Sky. The song begins with a chorus singing "bum bum bum bum bum" with gongs going off in the background. The song is an epic about a man who never had answers to his questions. I really feel this is Ozzy Osbourne's best. Then comes Tatooed Dancer, which is okay, I guess, but doesn't match up to the song that came before it. The last real song on the album is Demon Alcohol, a good song with great guitar playing. Then there is a bonus track: An unnnamed song that everyone just calls 'Hero'. I think it's very good. This album is one of metal's best."
