Ozzy comes back to life with “Let Me Hear You Sceam”

I’m as surprised as you.

I’d written Ozzy off completely after he and his annoying family attempted that dreadful abortion of a “variety” show. At that point, I was ready for the Oz to retire, resign, abdicate or be impeached from his position as metal statesman. I didn’t care how he left, as long as he went away.

So imagine my surprise today when I watched the video for “Let Me Hear You Scream,” for Ozzy’s appropriately titled new album, “Scream.” I haven’t really liked anything Ozzy has done since “No More Tears,” so I find it incredible to admit the song is actually, well, pretty freakin’ good.

Apparently, Ozzy’s decision to toss out Zakk Wylde and hire Gus G. as the band’s guitarist was just what the Oz needed to breathe new life into his flagging career. I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but if the rest of the album is as strong as this single, I’d actually consider buying it.

I have no idea what the hell is going on in the video … but who cares? It’s a damn fine song.

See what you think.
