Bark At The Moon
Released: Dec 1983
More proof that the hard-living legend landed on his feet after getting canned by Black Sabbath, Ozzy's third solo album was released in 1983. The first of his albums recorded after the tragic death of guitarist Randy Rhoads, Bark at the Moon offers the undeniable classic title cut amid a mostly successful cross between late-period Sabbath and melodic hard rock that represents Ozzy's best material. With ELO-style touches, "So Tired" may be the album's weirdest, most fun moment, but it's the Vol. 4 riffology that turns up here and there that'll grab the Sabbath fans. Just ignore the synths.
