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

Garry Bushell, Sounds, 20 November 1982

EXACTLY HOW and why this extraordinary album came about is a mystery on a par with the Turin Shroud. 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.
