Retirement sucks! That's why Ozzy Osbourne's decided to release a 7th studio album, Ozzmosis, and to go back on tour for "The Retirement Sucks Tour". The line-up evolved with the return of Geezer Butler on bass and Deen Castronovo as drummer.

This fearsome formation will give birth to a good quality record, making us forget potential fears. Zakk Wylde is still here for a record that follows in the footsteps of his two predecessors. That being said, "Ozzmosis" is a notch below "No More Tears" with excellent tracks but also some filling. It is also served by a more rock than heavy sound that is singularly lacking in power. 

Nevertheless there is something to please the fans. Wylde always offers lumberjack riffs, gives us impressive solos and some tracks offer excellent musical moments. It's the case of "Perry Mason", a tribute to the TV series whose intro takes again the credits. This song is perfect with its unstoppable chorus, its roaring bass line and its riffs and soli carved in stone. Then with "I Just Want You", Ozzy achieves a superb epic ballad that is both intense and full of feeling. Alongside are good heavy songs like "My Jekyll Doesn't Hide", "Tomorrow", "Thunder Underground" or "Denial", with this efficient mix between Ozzy's inimitable voice and Wylde's striking style between groove and stoner. 

Despite a few small flaws, Ozzmosis remains a solid and very correct album from good old Ozzy who wasn't wrong to come out of retirement. Because at this stage he gathers around him all the generations of metal fans and in this mid-90's, a time when many stylistic chapels are blossoming, this is no small feat.

OTHER REVIEWS
OZZY OSBOURNE: No More Tears (1991)
HEAVY METAL - "No More Tears" is of the same caliber as Ozzy's first two records. It has the same strength and the same intensity.
OZZY OSBOURNE: Down To Earth (2001)
HEAVY METAL - With "Down To Earth", Ozzy seems to lose control of his career to become a pure marketing product. If the album remains largely listenable, it remains far from the Madman's great records.
