Ozzy Osbourne Lyrics. Black Rain Lyrics (2007). Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). Lay Your World On Me. The Almighty Dollar. Don't tell me I'm wrong Don't tell me that you knew all along I won't roll over dead Only I know what goes on in my head.
On Black Rain, Ozzy's latest album, Wylde is prominent, giving the album a more BLS feel than previous. Most of it is heavy, almost doomy riffing couple with some great soloing but let's be honest, its Zakk Wylde, the man does little else. The Almighty Dollar' is driven along by an excellent bulldozing riff, and single 'I Don't Wanna Stop' is both catchy and heavy as hell. It's solidly uninspiring, something you don't really want to hear about an album by a legend of the heavy metal scene. It's enjoyable enough to listen to through, a few tracks may bring you back to it but nothing to call it a classic. Ozzy is now faced with a choice it seems: retire gracefully now and leave us with good memories or continue to sully his legacy with average records like this.
