I am not a huge Ozzy fan but want to make things straightened out.
Allmusic.com, which people refer to often, grades this awesome album below mediocre. The critque seems to target the general hair rock of mid 80’s. This album has everything to constitute a great hevey metal music, except for solid chemistry between Ozzy and Jake.
In fact, Ozzy’s voice does not impress me as usual but the guitar blows my mind. Here in the Ultimate Sin, Jake E. Lee explodes his anger in his playing, the most agressive and heaviest guitar among Ozzy’s albums. Jake deserves better than what people said about this album.
