It's a great album, if you're a "80's Lover" (Yes, I'm talkin' 'bout: Poison, Ratt, Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, Skid Row etc.) or simply you're 'indulgent' with this Rock-era, You'll have no problem with this album. Lyrics are simply wonderful, altought, Ozzy shows himself as "80's Glam Metal Icon", He was really so far of that (a fool who just matters "Sex, Drugs & Rock N' Roll") You can see that in: "Secret Loser", "Killer Of Giants" and "Thank God For The Bomb". rBut, You cannot hide or ignore all the tracks on the album: "Lightning Strikes", "Never Know Why", "Never" and "Fool Like You". There are, they're 'poppy' and 'Hair' and You cannot change that... So, just enjoy'em or skip'em. Anyway, a great job by Ozzy and Jake E. LeerPD: I remember the first time when I heard "Shot In The Dark" in concert, It's an EPIC MOMENT! See Ozzy Osbourne in concert it's just an experience that no-one (Metalheads) should miss out.
