Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears

Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears

Ozzy Osbourne’s No More Tears album came out in 1991, it was his six full length studio outing as a solo artist and Osbourne entered the 1990s in spectacular fashion. This was the second album to feature guitarist Zack Wylde, following the excellent No Rest For The Wicked album.

No More Tears was a smash hit multi-platinum album that found Osbourne and his band in ambitious new territory, modernizing their sound with some strong turn of the decade hard rock influences and some songwriting help from the legendary Lemmy. Zack Wylde even managed to add a little southern rock influences into the overall sound in the odd place here and there.

The vast majority of music on No More Tears is pretty much faultless, mixing atmospheric ballads with bouncy and heavy rock numbers full of Zack’s amazing guitar flourishes, creating a superb heavy metal sound.

Standout tracks include the incredibly catchy ‘S.I.N,’ as well as ‘Desire,’ and the famous ‘Mama I’m Comin Home,’ all of which are some of Ozzy’s finest ever compositions.

The album isn’t just a few good tracks and a bunch of filler however as No More Tears is consistent of quality throughout, arguably one of Ozzy’s most solid records to date. On top of all this; the production is pretty much perfect, Ozzy is at the top of his game in terms of vocals and the band are all on top form.

Overall, No More Tears is one of Ozzy’s best albums and an absolute must own for fans. If you have any interest in Ozzy you should check it out.
