    Ozzy's first solo single since 2011. There's no official credits yet, but it sounds like Andrew Watt (producer) playing guitar. The intro is very similar to Take What You Want, the Post Malone song which Ozzy was featured on in September (also produced by Watt).

    I'm really enjoying this song and it's nice to hear new music from Ozzy, especially given his recent health scare. That said, Zakk Wylde is sorely missed here.

    The new song reminds me of something from Ozzmosis. A much better song than I expected.

    For me, the track is cool enough (especially when they kick into high gear), but Ozzy's vocal style /phrasing / veneer is the same since No More Tears. There's no more genuine-sounding emotion in his delivery.

    However, I think he still has 'the goods' vocally. Ozzy needs a good hard rock band to back him. Enough of this pst-mdrn metal stuff. Get back to the basics.

    Ozzy needs a different framework.

    Not good enough, sorry Ozz. Been along time since I enjoyed anything you did (Ozzmosis, 25 years ago).

    • Ozzy Osbourne – vocals.
    • Andrew Watt – guitar, production.
    • Duff McKagan – bass.
    • Chad Smith – drums.
    This is also the personel of the upcoming album

    Duff McKagan on bass.
    Chad Smith on drums.

    Sounds promising.

    I did not like this song at first listen. But after I have listened to it a few times today, I am starting to really enjoy it! I can't wait for Ozzy's new record to be released!!

    The solo break thru the end is fantastic

    Love it! But then, Ozzmosis is my favorite Ozzy record and this sounds like it could have been an album track back then.

    Sabbath mark 1 should get more comfortable playing together again, let go of preconceived notions of what their music should be and just write good songs.

    That said I love Oz. I haven’t heard the track yet, but I will when I have the chance. No Zakk could be a good thing. The pairing has grown a bit stale for me.

    Not really into it. I’ve heard worse from Ozzy, but I’m not quite feeling.

    I like this song quite a bit. Now I am looking forward to the album.

    Please just release all the songs at once this time. I am tired of a "Tour Edition" with extra songs coming out 6 months after the initial release.

    Not the best but not the worst. I wish Zakk was still on guitar but I'm glad Ozzy is still putting out music and would listen to it again.

    Not bad at all. Ozzy sounds pretty good and I like the guitar break. I didn't bother with Ozzy's last couple of albums because I didn't like the preview tracks and the reviews weren't all that hot. I might end up giving this one a chance.

    Kind of overproduced and very commercial.

    Not really my bag.

    I also find the arrangement unconvincing. Sounds like they endeavored to have mood and tempo changes but it has a copy and paste feel to me. Maybe it would grow after a few more listens but I’m not motivated just now to listen again.

    The song isn't bad, Ozzy sounds good, but the guitar tone is kinda of lacking for a hard rock album in my opinion. It sounds over-processed to me and no depth. The solo could be a keyboard for all I know by the sound of it. Even the acoustic guitar tone is weak. No depth of tone. I agree with the copy and paste feel to it also. I would like to hear this with Zack.

    Cool song. I like it. Unexpected thought he'd be going more pop. This is cool.

    That would be cool, but Jake probably doesn't trust Team Osbourne enough to work with them, and rightfully so.
