The second album of Ozzy Osbourne's solo career, Diary of a Madman was his last to feature the talents of guitarist Randy Rhodes, who died in a plane crash soon after the disc's release. While it's not as furious as Osbourne's first solo album, Blizzard of Ozz, it still captures Ozzy's maniacal glory. Highlights include "Over the Mountain" and the kinetic "Flying High Again," which benefit as much from Rhodes's blistering musicianship as from Ozzy's heavy, melodic songwriting. Some of the album is burdened with overly sappy passages and obligatory ballads, but overall, Diary of a Madman is required listening for the well-heeled metalhead.


"Flying High Again", "Over the Mountain", & "Little Dolls" are wicked heavy, and full of that great Randy Rhoads riffing and creepy lyrics by Ozzy. It's too bad that none of these great tracks are being played on the radio these days. After this album, Ozzy went into his "glam-rock" period (1983-1987), which was a disgrace to his legend. The only album that even compares to this album's heaviness, is 1988's "No Rest for the Wicked" with Zakk Wylde on the guitar. Ozzy may be a bonafied celebrity now, but his music will never get better than Diary of a Madman.
