The twelfth full-length studio album by legendary Heavy Metal singer and his band.
The album marks the first time that Osbourne collaborated with Watt and Bell. It is also his first album overall since he reunited with Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler for their final album, "13" (2013), with him as lead singer. It also marks the longest gap between two albums from Osbourne to date, spanning almost ten years since "Scream".
The album is charged with an unexpected crackle of life that hasn't graced an Ozzy album in a long time. It recalls the raw power of Black Sabbath, but also channels "Black Album"-era Metallica on the creeping, oozy "Today Is the End" and the unhinged Punk/Thrash on the Post Malone-assisted "It's a Raid". Despite a few weaker spots, "Ordinary Man" contains some of Ozzy's best solo work in years. The production is huge, but the energy is spontaneous, sounding like it was as fun to make as it is to listen to. 71 years old at the time "Ordinary Man" was released, Osbourne's voice in great shape, sounding more or less like he always has. How he's making music this strong after "riding the crazy train" for more than half-a-century is anyone's guess, but the better songs here rank among his best!
“This is quite possibly the most important album I have done in a very long time, probably since "No More Tears"” - Ozzy Osbourne.
"Ordinary Man" debuted at number 3 on the US Billboard 200 with 77 000 equivalent units, including 65 000 pure album sales. This is Osbourne's eighth top ten album on the chart as a solo artist, and equals the peak of his 2007 album "Black Rain". The album also debuted at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart, his highest-ever solo placing on the chart.
Release features Download Card for the album with additional bonus track "Take What You Want", which not appeared on the vinyl.
