Ozzy!!!! Just love the man, always have. Since the 70's. He's truly one of the few still around putting out music, a true rock GOD and living legend. Scream is awesome. Anyone who has not bought the album - buy it, spin it and tell me it's just not bad@ss. How the man reinvents himself all the time is just gold! Really good stuff. = All of the men who had a hand in it's creation very well deserve to be acknowledged for this amazing set of songs. Churko, Wakeman, Ozzy, Gus, Blasko...hats off to you!
