Ozzy Osbourne released his debut solo album in 1980 and it has since went on to become an all-time classic album in the eyes of many. It contains a lot of great material and grows on you with each listen.

The album is one of only two studio albums with the late Randy Rhodes on board as the guitarist. Randy’s guitar playing is the stuff of legends as I’m sure you’ve already heard if you like this kind of music.

Blizzard Of Ozz features the classic tracks ‘Crazy Train,’ ‘Suicide Solution,’ and ‘Mr Crowley,’ all of which are essential listening for any Ozzy fan. The album is also strong as a whole, with great rocking tracks like ‘I Don’t Know,’ and ‘No Bone Movies,’ keeping the album’s energy up alongside a few softer moments for variety.

The album is strong in terms of songwriting, a masterpiece guitar-wise and Ozzy’s excellent vocals have rarely sounded better. Overall, Blizzard Of Ozz is definitely a must have album for Ozzy fans.

This 2011 expanded edition of the album does not come with linear notes or a DVD, but thankfully does feature the original performance by the original musicians remastered to the highest quality. This is not the version where Mike Bordin and Rob Trujillo were made to overdub the original rhythm section out of the mix. Furthermore, there is the bonus tracks ‘RR,’ and ‘You Looking At Me, Looking At You,’ in addition to an alternative version of the ballad ‘Goodbye To Romance,’

If you want to listen to Blizzard Of Ozz, this is a great way to do it.
