What a trip! Ozzy's greatest commercial hits. Though not my favorite Ozzy songs, it is impossible to please every fan when you have so many great songs. This cd is great. It was the first Ozzy cd I ever bought, and now I have all of them! I'm a hardcore fan for life! Listen to this cd and you will get caught up in Ozzmania! It starts of with two really raw rehearsal tapes, Black Sabbath, and War Pigs. Then it moves onto the ballad Goodbye To Romance. About this time you'll be ready to rock, and on comes the instantly recognizable Crazy Train. Then the eerie Mr. Crowley. When that extreme guitar solo outro is over, the driving riff of Over The Mountain starts up. Then it moves on to a live Paranoid with Randy Rhoads. Then the hard-hitting duo of Bark At The Moon and Shot In The Dark get you going. The low point of the album is next up in the form of Crazy Babies. Then it instantly picks up with a remix of No More Tears. Next up is the power ballad (and my favorite Ozzy tune) Mama I'm Coming Home. Then a seriously gnarly live rendition of I Don't Want To Change The World. Then a great combo: the only Ozzmosis tune on here, I Just Want You, and a previously unreleased Ozzmosis leftover, Back On Earth. That last track is a real treat. It's worth the 18 bucks just for that one track. It kind of hits that heavy nerve, like Sad But True. Excellent collection, go buy it now and get hooked on Ozzy!
