This should have been a 5-star review. I've been waiting for this remaster of this classic for a long time. However, the new 2011 remastering is really disappointing and there are 2 major audio glitches. Still, there are a couple nice bonuses.

There is a very noticeable glitch at :47 in "Dee" that ruins the transition from that song into Suicide Solution. The audio warbles loudly twice as the last chord rings. I noticed other people have complained about this, and sure enough, it is on my CD as well, so it is likely on every pressed copy especially since I have this remaster from both the box set and the single disc from Amazon and they are identical with their problems. Did anyone even listen to the master/reference CD before pressing it? This defect is not on any prior version and is not even in the Blizzard documentary when Ozzy is listening to the end of Dee on the master tape.

There is another problem in "Steal Away". It starts out a bit muted, then at 0:03 all of a sudden it sounds like a pillow is lifted off your speakers.

Like others have said in their reviews here, it is too compressed and the 1995 remaster actually sounds better (jusr compare the middle instrumental section of Revelation of this CD and the '95 remaster and you'll see). When the levels on a CD are pushed too loud as they are here, it makes the CD sound very harsh and ruins the dynamics of the music. The soft parts are louder and the louder parts are softer. The instruments sound blended together, and not in a good way. My playback system is average, so you don't need expensive equipment to notice this.

Even the panning of the effects at the beginning of Crazy Train don't pan as smoothly as on the '95.

This is a MASTERPIECE. A Classic featuring the best playing of the time. Rhoads at his best, a ripe Ozzy and a nice Keerslake/Daisley rhythm section.

Unfortunately... it was RE-RECORDED lately and re-issued with Mike Bordin and Robert Trujillo taking places over the original bass and drums tracks. The result being horrible, not because of bad playing, but of a very poor production work, ends up being unnacurate, poor sounding, and not tight at all.

Being a musician myself, and understainding Ozzy's position regarding lawsuits, I must admit this is a step towards non-beligerant options regarding the issue of the two first Ozzy-as-solo-artist records. However, even tho I respect a lot Bordin's and Trujillo's work (they are both fine musicians), I find the end result on this reissue simply disgusting. And not being Bordin and Trujillo's fault precisely. There is a SEVERE lack of precision in the production work, being that there are less-than-discreet differences on sound, on TIMING and what was originally played. It is harder to copy or re-create a work done twenty-something years ago on a note-by-note basis, but what else do fans expect? I mean, nobody ever imagined (or wished) a classic album should be re-done on this fashion, but if you EVER had the original recording, and have a little bit of attention paid to the work here, you will find lots of flaws and missing things, or a loose rhythm section "following" the pre-recorded guitar work, instead of it being the basement for the rest of the music (as it should be...).

Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell this reissue from the original one if you're trying to buy it "new and used" over a website. I got the reissued re-recording instead of the 1995 edition (with the small artwork over a big blue background) since the seller seem not to notice the difference between them, and am severely dissapointed. A clever example of what should never be done to a classic...

Amazon really needs to get better at sorting out the reviews for multiple editions of the same material. The last edition, where the drum and bass tracks were rerecorded was definitely a horrible mistake that ruined the album. This 2011 edition reinstates the original tracks and remasters the entire album, adding some bonus tracks to boot. If you buy any reissue of this album, the 2011 edition is the one you want.

What a shame.

Of course I already owned vinyl, cassette, and CD versions of this album. I've been an Ozzy fan since the 80's and this was one of the few albums I used to listen to (and practice drums to) over and over again in my teenage years, so I know it well.

My wife recently (and unknowingly) bought the "reissue" to play in her car (yes, we're good consumers like that) and I didn't immediately notice the different drums (Mike Bordin does a pretty good job of duplicating Lee Kerlsake's performance), but the bass guitar didn't sound right. And by the end of the first song I knew something was really wrong. It all sounded "off", like the drums were recorded after everything else (because they were). I thought it could possibly be just because of a re-mix. But then I noticed that one of Lee's harmless drumming mistakes in "Crazy Train" (going into the verse after the guitar solo) was magically fixed in this recording! And the feel of the slower songs ("Goodbye to Romance" and "Revelation") were not at all like I was used to hearing (and playing to) - and everything just sounded... after all these years... so sloppy! "Revelation (Mother Earth)" is especially bad (rhythm-wise).

After researching the unimaginable story of this "re-issue", it all made sense. The original studio performances were not recorded to a click track and Mike had problems precisely duplicating the original tempo fluctuations. And how you can blame him?

When recording modern music, the drums are normally recorded first (before or simultaneously with the bass/rhythm guitars) and then everything else layered on top. This is done for a very good reason: the other musicians listen to and que off the drums for the feel and tempo as they're recording their additional tracks.

Ozzy cds missing "You Said It All" (live)
I thought I remember something about a Blizzard deluxe edition being listed on here with it having like a $40-50 price on it, but I don't see it listed anymore.

Blizzard and Diary editions being released on 31 May are these definitely the originals? Because the last thing I want is a... Read More

"original" blizzard of ozz
Quiet or loud shouldn't be the yardstick, fidelity should be the yardstick, you can always turn it up.
How do they sound on HEADPHONES versus the '95 remasters?

who to believe in? loudness war criteria vs excellent sound?
It sounds great. The people who are against this haven't even heard the new CD or like Steve Hoffman's gold discs.
On a fairly good multi channel stereo this CD sound amazing.
