Customer Reviews

If you're an Ozzy fan, buy this used, or just get the songs I liked.
Metalhammer
If you people don't like Ozzy, or think he should retire, then don't purchase his cds or even listen to him.
R. Griffiths
He butchers the Beatles songs, and most of the others are pretty bad too.

I wasn't sure what to think when I first bought this album, and actually at first didn't even recognise half the songs being only 19. I have since grown to love this album, and I feel that Ozzy's voice holds up fantastically. Some say it's cracking or failing, but I actually find the maturation or evolution of Ozzy's voice through his career an extra side to listening to any Ozzy album. And let's remember this man is almost 60, has an extremely rare genetic disease to battle, has metal plates in his chest and nearly died two years ago.

Yes, I too am desperate to hear a completely new, original album from him but we will just have to wait! The simple fact that he doesn't rush out a new original album proves that he is not interested in "cashing in" as he could probably record ten awful songs and release them and the album would still fly off the shelves - but he cares, and he cares a lot, and he won't do that.

To those that say this album is a cash-in, it was an addition to the box set and all Ozzy's idea for our benefit. The day Ozzy retires would be a terrible shame to all of us and to him as well, and hopefully it will never happen.

AND for those that talk of him 'divorcing Sharon' because of business decisions you really must think very little of Ozzy. He loves that woman and she loves him, and she's literally saved his life and his career!

I want to begin by saying I do not understand all the negative reviews about how bad Ozzy's voice is and how he butchers these songs.A cover song is supposed to be the artist's interpretation of the song,not a duplicate.I grew up with this music,and Ozzy's too and find the selection refreshing and well done.I was pleasantly suprised at how well he covered the John Lennon material,very top notch.The band is tight and the inclusion of Leslie West on Mississippi Queen and Robert Randolph on others is incredible.Give the man a break,lay back and listen and enjoy.This CD gets better with each listen.Rock on Ozzy.

Honestly, It would be a waste of breath to sit here and insult others on the terms of bashing an artist for there ideas. I think this album was a bold move on Ozzy's part, Not very many artist would do a full album of covers. Sure it has been done before, and yeah bands have done covers before, but, my question is, What exactly makes a bad album? One sucks to one person would be a kick ass idea to another. I had the chance to listen to a few songs off this album, and i thought they where great. Granted most of these tracks where in his box set, so yeah you could say i ( and many others) already have this album, I think this album was a great move on his part, because he already did what he could do in the world of music. Both with the days of black sabbath and his solo years. All i am really trying to get at is, I would like to see some one try to do what Ozzy has done and last as long as he has. Not every thing has turned to gold, but what other artist these days can truly say, "Hey i had this successful bad back in the day, changed the face of rock & roll, and this solo thing i am doing, all 13 (or so) albums have gone platnium"? none that i can think of.

More Like “Duck and Cover”, and not because this is "Da Bomb" - just "A" bomb.
Brand loyalty can convince one to make a lot of regrettable purchases. You think to yourself, “I love my Samsung Galaxy s3 phone, I’m sure their washing machines must be as great.” Or you say to yourself, “Wow, 30-something years ago this dude cut a record that totally transformed his career and had a huge impact on my own style and musical taste. How could a recording of him doing songs from that time and even 20 years before be bad?” How? HOW?

I Love Ozzy. I met him once and convinced him to say “Eat your Vegetables” into my camcorder to play for my 2 year-old who also loves Ozzy, even 28 years later. Since the days of Black Sabbath and through his parade of guitarist, most of whom have also “Heavily” influenced the genre, I have done my little part to support the artist Ozzy Osbourne. Right up to this point. These 13 tracks may have been that proverbial last trip to the well. Well, maybe not all 13. Oddly enough it is the ones that don’t rock so hard that work for me. Is this because I, like Ozzy have aged and I, unlike Ozzy, realize this as a fact of life? Another maybe.

The two John Lennon songs plus 1 Lennon-McCartney number are a quarter of the recording and more than half of why I give it 3-stars instead of two. The Beatles’ “Rubber Soul” album of 1965 was in its own way every bit as ground breaking as 1980’s “Blizzard of Ozz” and “In My Life” is a classic covered by so many bands and artist it would be more characters than allowed to try and list them all here. The Oz-Man’s version is vocally apt but the accompaniment is the first hint that the producer was phoning it in. Lennon’s “Woman” is such a natural fit for Ozzy it is uncanny.

In the beginning of the 2000`s Ozzy Osbourne was enjoying a newfound popularity with the success of the television series The Osbournes. All of a sudden Ozzy was once again interesting and attention worthy to the media. In 2001 he released his first album in six years Down To Earth followed by a live album Live At Budokan in 2002. Then in 2005 a cover album Under Cover came out, it was initially something Ozzy raved about and he thought the material on it was really great. I have to say I like Ozz`s enthusiastic opinion about these covers but I don`t think those covers are quite as good as he claims they are. I`m certainly not against a cover album and Ozzy`s song selection for Under Cover is interesting, the songs he chose to cover are actually very good, they rock and were made by respectable rock `n`roll artists. So what is there on a tribute album made by Ozzy? Of course he pays tribute to his primary influence The Beatles (as well as two songs by John Lennon), but there are also the Rolling Stones, Mountain, King Crimson and Mott The Hoople among others.

Zakk Wylde doesn`t play guitar on Under Cover, instead he is replaced here by Alice In Chains`Jerry Cantrell. Cantrell delivers a good performance on those covers but I believe that Zakk Wylde would have done a better job. Faith No More's Mike Bordin is once again on drums and Chris Wyse is on bass. The musicians playing with Ozzy deliver better performances than he does. One thing that does not help Under Cover is that 9 of those songs were previously released on the Prince of Darkness box set which believe or not came out the same year (bad call on that one).
