Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 102
ORIGIN: Birmingham, England
TITLE: Bark at the Moon
GENRE: Heavy Metal
FAVORITE SONG: "Waiting for Darkness"
NOTES: This was the last of the classic-era Ozzy Osbourne albums I picked up. It was quite a bit different than Ozzy's first couple of releases, mostly due to the addition of Jake Lee on guitar to replace the deceased Randy Rhoads. Lee had a significantly different style than Rhoads, one more suited to a traditional heavy metal sound than the more classically influenced style of Rhoads. The title track is the most well-known song on the album. By and large this was a heavier release without a lot of filler, a common problem with Ozzy albums.
