Limited Edition UK pressing of Ozzy's 2007 album comes housed in bootleg-style cardboard packaging. Black Rain is Osbourne's first new studio material in six years. Ozzy co-produced the album with Kevin Churko and recorded it with his touring band: Zakk Wylde (guitar), Mike Bordin (drums) and Blasko (bass). Ozzy feels this album is the true follow-up to his classic No More Tears, the 1991 album that also challenged the expectations of what an Ozzy album should sound like. Some of the songs on Black Rain are ominous in their emotional tone-they examine a world teeming with greed, war, deception, bad drugs ("11 Silver," about crystal meth) and environmental havoc. The Ozzman also zooms in on the overriding sense of fear and dread that define our times-perpetrated, he feels, by news programs that make "entertainment" out of terrible news events. Columbia.
