So the dude on that Post Malone song actually came out with an album of his own, huh? How kind of Postie to give this man a career!

My expectations are really low, but I'm still looking forward to hearing this.

How? Oh yeah, they could have turned the autotune off!

The album is not bad but neither with its main objective, that of guest artists who collaborate on different songs (except elton john) doesn't seem right to me

the song I like best is:

8 means very good on MS.
Ozzy hasn't been "very good" for me since 1991.
And what I heard from the new album it's for me his worst. I'm not even gonna listen to the whole thing.

Didn't expect anything mindblowing from this album, so at least I can say I don't feel any disappointed. The album itself isn't that interesting or fun for that matter, ol' man Oz has trouble articulating clearly and whatever singing he can still do is so full of autotune you could argue it's the algorithm doing the job altogether. The songs are mostly just tired and boring.

That's that.

You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.

No, it is a 4. Merely the fact that he chose to start the album with the (auto-tuned) "alright now" line is disgraceful to himself, to Black Sabbath and to Sweet Leaf. Ozzy did not need another album. In fact, as JoHn DoE said above, everything after No More Tears is unneeded. I can't accuse him of anything though. He is one of the main reasons I listen to this music and I will always be thankful for that no matter how badly he chooses to ridicule himself.

Funny thing, after the release of No More tears, Ozzy was announcing his retirement. Or so i read in a magazine back then. He came back 4 years later with Ozzmosis.

Yes, I remember that too. And it was not like today's retirement announcements that no one takes seriously, people did think back then that he would quit for good.

21st century people did not really appreciate. The man turned 70, struggles with Parkinson and released an amazing album, look at the score 6.7 (!). It should have been at least 8-8.5.

I think people are giving this one too much credit because it's Ozzy. 3 listens and it's a 4 from me. Not a car accident like Catharsis but not far off either.

Song 3-4-5 are best. But 10th nails all
Think this might be his last studio album, unless he dies and Sharon to make money digs 80's recordings and release soundhouse basement tapes, previously un realised song collection whit ozzy and randy.
It dont sound like BLS but its soft, ballad, 80's winger style hair metal keyboard infuenced album , it can be heavyer, but such old timer decide go to studio, respect.

Really bad album. I should've given a 4. But as RaduP said this might be the legend's final album and as an ex-fan who grew up with Black Sabbath and Crazy Train....Well I should acknowledge the great Ozzy.

^ I do not understand why the album is rated higher because it might be Ozzy's last work. I find the songs I heard uninspired, uninteresting. If I was to rate this, it would be a low rating.

Really bad album.


And yet you rated it 7 with some weak justification.
As much as I like Metal Storm Awards, this website should really revisit its rating system. I know that video games rating have a scale of 7 to 10, but there's no reason for music albums to be the same.

I do agree with you but then my justification says it all even if it is a weak one.
