After the pass away of Rhandy Rhoads (R.I.P.) Ozzy published his thirs
solo album in 1983 with a new, wild guitar player called Jake E. Lee
The Albus starts with a great guitar hook in the song Rock'n Roll Rebel,
a straight forward song with a refrain everyone could remember and
therefore a good decision to plug this song as opener. Followed by the title track
that includes the werewolf theme, the main theme of this album. With a
fast guitar opening of Lee and one of the best vocals Ozzy ever did,
this song became the only classic song of Bark at the Moon
, ending with
Ozyy howling to the moon. After this real fast song, the band slow down
with a semi ballad called You're no different. A song in the
line of Goodbye to romance from the Blizzard of Ozz
album but without
the vibes that were needed. Not bad, but more a filler than a song that
could be remembered. Now You see it (now you don't) brings the
album back to attack with fantastic guitar theme of Jake E. Lee
real high vocals of Ozzy in the refrain. A hook monster at its best. Waiting for darkness
is another slower song with mystical touch and a tragic character. The
song takes the listeners deep in the theme of this album and let them
hope that Ozzy will reach the darkness soon to transform himself to a
wolf. A very emotional song. So Tired
is again more a filler than a song to remember. Silent
and more for going to bed than staring at the moon. Forever
brings the album back again with one more fantastic guitar work and
incredible vocals. One of the faster moments of the album and the last
kick before Spiders
end Bark at the Moon
with the feeling that this animals will crawl into your head.
In some countries the album had Slow
as song instead of Spiders
. A song that was nothing more than a filler
and not a lot of people know about this song. Doesn't matter.
A good album for sure, but without the amount of classics like the first two albums had.
I am in the nice position that I could see Ozzy Osbourne
in the Bark at the Moon
line up at Monsters
of Rock, Nürnberg 1984.
songs came live a lot heavier than they appear at the album and Jake E.
Lee could show the people on stage his talent more than in the studio.
