The 2002 remastered "Bark at the Moon" CD is actually more of a remix than a remaster. Needless to say, a side by side comparison will show that the music itself (not just the tonal quality) sounds different from all previous releases of this album. If you're a young fan who's brand new to Ozzy's music and thus have never really heard the "Bark at the Moon" album, you might like this somewhat modern-sounding remix. Otherwise, if you're a long-time fan who knows the original album inside and out, you may be totally repulsed by the difference in the CD's music.

Ozzy re-re-released his first two solo albums on CD in 2002, but without any mention on the outside packaging that they were actually RE-RECORDINGS done with different musicians! In an attempt to get out of paying royalties to the musicians who played on the original album, Ozzy had the original bass and drum tracks re-recorded by his current band mates. (Quite an insulting way to treat the remaining band who not only made the late Randy Rhodes' a legend, but also helped bring Ozzy out of Black Sabbath's shadow -- if not reverse that situation entirely.)

The 2002 "Bark at the Moon" CD is essentially a remix of the 1983 original, not a re-recording. But you'd have no way of knowing from reading the outside packaging or even the CD booklet. In and of itself, the remixed album admittedly sounds rather good in places. Although in a few other places it sounds like Ozzy's singing behind a wall (which is not an uncommon side effect found on badly produced metal albums). Overall the CD music is very cohesive sounding, unlike what you get when you, oh say, try to re-record drums. Here there's a little more boominess, different guitar and drum fills, more rhythm guitar and less keyboards.

This review is of the second Bark At The Moon remaster, released in 2002 along side the rest of Ozzy's catalog predating Down To Earth. Though Blizzard and Diary feature new drum and bass parts, Bark At The Moon was completely remastered using the original session tapes.
Or was it...?
I bought Bark At The Moon when it came out, and it was a great recording and very influential in it's time. But Bruce Dickerson's remix is missing major signature solos in Rock N' Roll Rebel, both in the opening licks, and in the breaks. This is one of the most renowned tracks from Bark, delivered in an incomplete state on this "remaster!" The only explanation is that Jake E. Lee recorded his solos over the stereo master in the final hour, and they couldn't be extracted.
But it gets worse: You're No Different" was full of keyboards on the original recording, but they are super loud on this CD, drowning out the drums and guitar. It's as if Dickerson just ran the session tapes without checking the volume of individual instruments. It defies explanation, truly.
If you haven't heard Bark At The Moon before, you may not notice these omissions. You'll just think it's a record made on the rebound of Randy's death by a weaker band.
But Jake E. Lee held his own with Ozzy, and if you dig for earlier releases of this recording, you'll discover an album that stands up to Blizzard and Diary.
This is sonething else...

Ozzy and Sony have done it again. Another 5-star album has been ruined! This reissue was remixed with some guitar parts deleted (for example, the first half of the intro solo to "Rock 'n' Roll Rebel" has been eliminated.) The keyboards in the beginning of "Waiting for Darkness" have been boosted up so loud that you can barely hear the churning guitar riff below. These are just two of the things that have been changed. "Bark at the Moon" has been drastically altered. "Centre of Eternity" has been drastically altered. I can't believe they would have done this after the fiasco with the Blizzard and Diary reissues. Once again, there has been no mention of the altering on the CD's sticker or advertising. No, Sir, I don't like it.

I've had it with the lies.
I've loved Ozzy like all of you for a long time. But you know what: the reissues of 'BOZ' and 'DOAM' and 'BATM' have lifted the veil on lies that are simply unacceptable. Tell me - in any other form of art or music, would outright lies about the true creators of lyrics/music/art be accepted?
Bob Daisley is the true architect behind the topics of Ozzy's solo career. His lyrics are what gave Ozzy SUBSTANCE (the difference between him and a thousand others). Daisley needs to be recognized, admired and given his credit. Ozzy is not what he has led people to believe. Funny, I always wondered how this clown of a personality could write such great lyrics...
Now we find out the truth.
I am so disappointed, as others will be when they find out. The worst part of this is that Ozzy and Sharon will not even pay Daisley his royalties. Christ - these songs would not exist without Bob's lyrics. THEY ARE HIS SONGS ALSO. (imagine if you can, the hypocrisy of reading in the Bark at the Moon credits that Ozzy wrote these songs alone... Daisely or Jake E. Lee aren't even mentioned.)
I am throwing down the gauntlet to true OZZY fans - Spread the truth and let's get Ozzy to make things right. He is nothing if not truthful about his career.
Public personalites earn our love and respect with their talent, performances, accomplishments and INTEGRITY. But when they cease to show truthfullness, they lose their right to our admiration. It is imperative that people and especially Ozzy's fans learn the truth about his songs. His greatest acheivements are mainly due to Bob Daisley's fantastic lyrics. Daisley deserves the same royalties as Ozzy.
And the same respect from the public. Truth must prevail.
