I recently heard that two of my all-time favorite albums, Ozzy Osbourne's "Blizzard of Ozz" and "Diary of a Madman," had undergone a 24-bit remastering process, and were to be re-released on CD. I couldn't wait to check them out, and I purchased them the moment they became available.
The first clue that something was wrong came while I was leafing through the booklet for "Blizzard." The old back cover photo of Ozzy on stage with guitarist Randy Rhoads, bassist (and lyricist) Bob Daisley, and drummer Lee Kerslake had been doctored so that only Ozzy was now visible. Strange, I thought.
Then I sat down to listen. My first reaction to "Blizzard" was that the drumming sounded sloppier than I remembered. Skipping from track to track, I noticed some things were sounding very different, and that the album seemed to have not only been remastered, but had been completely remixed from the original multi-track tapes.
Giving the liner notes a closer look, I discoved that all of the bass and drum tracks for both albums have been re-recorded by current Ozzy sidemen Robert Trujillo and Mike Bordin, respectively.
I'm not kidding.
At this point I began to get pretty upset. The bass and drum tracks have been re-recorded in such a way as to mimic the original sound of the albums, but it doesn't work: Trujillo's bass is actually noticeably out-of-tune on a couple of numbers, and Bordin's drumming never matches the feel of the original tracks. Of course, "Blizzard of Ozz" was a somewhat lo-fi album to begin with. What about "Diary of a Madman," the album I've long characterized as the "Sgt. Pepper" of Heavy Metal?
In my opinion, "Diary" has been ruined. From the opening drum triplets of "Over the Mountain" everything is wrong, wrong, wrong.

As you can see alot of this cd IS NOT FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES as previously advertiesed. Beware that the outside of the new CD does not tell you that parts were re-recorded. In part 2 of my review I will post and comment on the track listing of Blizzard of Ozz 2002 "New" Master Edition.
Part 2
I Don't Know- From what I can tell the bass is louder than the 95 remaster and the tone matches pretty well. Robert and Mike do a good job mimicing the original recording.
Crazy Train-This is were everything starts to go wrong!!! The bass is toned way differently from the original and you notice it right away!

Ozzy has managed, in a single stroke, to ruin two classic albums, trash his artistic integrity, and destroy the legacy of his late guitarist, Randy Rhodes. Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman are seminal recordings, but these reissues have re-recorded drum and bass tracks, and are therefore NOT the remasters that Epic and Ozzy have advertised. And that these abominations should have been produced because of a royalty dispute with the original bassist and drummer reeks of Sharon Obourne's petulance. That Ozzy would let Randy's memory be soiled like this floors me. If you do not already own the 1995 remasters of these albums, then you better get them quick. They may be the last available original versions of these two that we'll ever see. Bottom line on the new reissues, absolute garbage!

Yoko Ono multiplied by a thousand? Meet Sharon Osbourne. Was the TV show amusing? Sure, make Ozzy the Al Bundy of heavy metal music. What comes next? Removing drum and bass tracks so you don't have to pay the original musicians? A new low and a new lame. Sharon Osbourne pulling the plug on Iron Maiden during the Ozzfest, or staging hecklers? May Eddie sodomize Sharon in hell, where she'll assuredly be headed. She's turned Ozzy into a joke. Tell her to take all these "reissues" and stuff them. By the way, the Ultimate Sin album still exists, no matter how much you try to ignore it, Sharon. What, was Ozzy coked out and cheating on you then, so you want to bury that material, or is it simply you want to stiff a whole other set of musicians?
