What is Ozzy now, 100 or something? You'd think the old coot would call it a career, rather than further tarnish his legacy. But as with most icons past their prime, he just doesn't know when to say when. He's clearly saddled by idiots; why else would he choose to whore himself out on MTV? But even if someone did
have the stones to attempt to dissuade him, Ozzy's never needed anyone's validation. And he doesn't need it now, a point he makes clear on "I Don't Want to Stop": "I don't know what they're talking about/I'm making my own decisions/This thing that I found ain't gonna bring me down/I'm like a junkie without an addiction." In fact, on Black Rain
, he sounds more invigorated than he has in years. Granted, there are few surprises and even fewer decent tunes, but the Oz can still sing his ass off.
