Ozzy Osbourne: Talk Of The Devil (Jet) *****

Garry Bushell, Sounds, 20 November 1982

I personally fancy it's Ozzy's way of putting upstarts like Venom in their place, though more orthodox interpretations tend to concentrate on the equally inexplicable rift between Oz and Jet Records supremo Don Arden.
