At last, after 5 long years, Ozzy Osbourne honors us with a new studio masterpiece. „Black Rain“ catapults with the first note the Ozz Sound on a more modern level without forfeiting authenticity. The classic Ozzfest visitor will not be disappointed, because the CD surprises with a blasting sound, which does not allow distraction. You can look forward to significant ingenious guitar – backup by guitar god Zakk Wylde and ex–Rob Zombie guitarist Rob Nicholson, as well as to phat drum action by Mike Bordin plus exciting bass – melodies, which are regrettably seldom heard these days. The song „The Almighty Dollar” catches with one of that ilk, it admittedly does not suit as a single, but will elate sensualists.
Demure themes like global politics, death, and naturally the love for his wife Sharon set the textual background to the album. The entitling song „Black Rain“, a metaphor to the oilwar, criticizes the political abysm , which threats to arise a atomic war. The album separates into artistic and chart songs, „Not Going Away“ and „I Don`t Wanna Stop“, the first single, are fairly refrain – loaded, what does not attract negative attention however. The two gorgeous ballads dedicated to Sharon “Lay Your World on Me” and „Here For You”, are likewise potential single releases.
„Black Rain“ is a absolutely captivating record, which to dignify you take your leisure. Excellent production and recording by Kevin Churkin and Ozzy himself as co-producer. The Madman can indeed rely on his team! Waiting was really worth it, Ozzy is simply timeless!
