We gave it a B+

The original Goth rocker spits out a double-CD retrospective, including Sabbath outtakes and a pointless 17-minute interview. From the taut demonic march of ”Over the Mountain” to the symphonic snarl of ”No More Tears” (can we forgive the omission of ”Flying High Again”?), The OZZman Cometh nails Ozzy at his morose max. Damned if you don’t find yourself reaching for the head of a bat. B+
