Ozzy Osbourne Ordinary Man new Album Feb 21, 2020

I hope this is not the last album of original material.


Ordinary Man features a star-studded group of collaborators including Elton John, Post Malone, and members of Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against the Machine, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Post Malone’s producer, Andrew Watt, helmed the record and played guitar on it. Osbourne recently explained at a SiriusXM event in Los Angeles that making the record with Watt was therapeutic for him. “I’d been feeling like fucking death,” he said. “And Andrew was a shining light for me.”

Been listening to it for a few days. I've been an Ozzy fan for 40+ years, but it's very "meh".

From the sounds of it, this was more a project to help keep him sane versus various ailments than anything.

Ozzy is a god. I hope we remember him as such. Crazy train is one of the best songs of the quarter century

probably remember him as a god?

Except for the last track by Post Malone... the album is terrible.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The best song on the album is the bonus track with Post Malone. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that, which kind of makes it pointless to get on vinyl.

Green Day's last album was also unlistenable.

I would say I'm just getting old, but these artists are older than I am! (Except for Post Malone.)

He has two tracks with Post Malone on the album.

That might introduce him to the younger generation and hopefully they become fans or check out his music.

After the first 3, Ozzmosis is my favorite Ozzy album.

A 40-year old song is the best song of the last 25 years.

The beginning of the chorus of Under the Graveyard sounds so familiar. I've listened to it 3 or 4x in a row but can't put my finder on it. Sound familiar to any one else?

Sounds like a lot of modern Ozzy songs to me but I can't name a specific one to pin it on.

On another note, I listened to the album and thought it was generally ok but ultimately forgettable. No Crazy Trains here.

As a very big metalhead, I know it is sacrilegious to speak ill of Ozzy. But holyy hell his solo stuff is crap. It was ok with Randy Rhodes but after he died and Zakk came in it just became unlistenable. This album is more of the same.

I think his solo stuff is more melodic than his Sabbath stuff though I like both.

Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman are absolute classics, and I enjoy Bark at the Moon and Ultimate Sin quite a bit, as well.

But everything after that, while not necessarily bad, is kind of forgettable.

I like the first half of the album quite a bit. The second, not so much. Eat Me is awful, except of course for the slow part in the middle. Ozzy does slow/ballads better than anyone in metal.

I think No More Tears is his last decent album. And Zakk is terrible. I saw Ozzy last year and he butchered every Rhoades solo.

I could never warm up to "No More Tears." Too slick and poppy. Same complaint I had about Motley Crue's "Doctor Feelgood."

Both albums have a few decent songs, but they just seem too MTV; over-produced and calculated.

I sort of like Black Rain. Might grab the new album eventually. I feel like it might be Ozzy’s last album.

A ballad with Ozzy and Elton John looking back at Ozzy's life and career.

Two other videos from this album

It sounds like he is wearing a retainer or a mouth guard on some of his songs on the new album.

A&E will have a new biography special tomorrow

Nice though his life story has been covered numerous times before.
