Okay, so here we are talking about the second of the two new Ozzy Osbourne tracks called "Straight To Hell". I would easily take this song over "Under The Graveyard" any day. This track also features Slash on guitar.
Talking about the track, I will address the good and the bad. I will say that the line "I'll make you scream, I'll make you defecate" has "cringe" written all over it. The guitar tone is certainly a little more punchy, some of the riffs are decent, and the "Alright now!" at the beginning has undoubtedly put "Sweet Leaf" is many people's heads when they heard that. Once again, you can clearly hear the auto-tune on this track. You obviously hear Ozzy singing high, but please, don't let that fool you because like I mentioned in the "Under The Graveyard" review, if you go see him live, he will not even be close to sounding like he did on the record with those high notes, because he can't do them anymore. Keep it natural, Ozzy! Either sing without auto-tune, or don't sing at all.
I will still check out Ordinary Man when it comes out, but I'm not holding my hopes up. Ozzy, you're awesome, but given what I've heard so far from the songs and the statements made about the album, I'm honestly not expecting much.
