Black Rain adds nothing to Ozzy legend

Based on a few decent reviews, I bought Ozzy Osbourne’s latest album Black Rain. Ozzy has become a household name with his reality show, but despite this the reviews I read claim that his new CD delivers decent if not groundbreaking music. Obviously, Ozzy has lost the energy he put forth in his prime solo albums and while the riffs by Zakk Wylde are OK, nothing here is too striking.

I gave the disc a full spin today and my initial impression was that Black Rain the album sounds very much like a pop-metal offering from the late 1980s / early 1990s. Nothing here is horrid but neither are the songs impressive.

Verdict : inconsequential metal music
