Ever since Ozzy became known to millions as the dumb rock-star dad in the reality TV series The Osbournes
, it’s been hard to take the former prince of darkness seriously. With his 10th studio solo album, Ozzy is once again trying to regain his heavy-metal crown. But Scream
, a collection of lackluster numbers like “Life Won’t Wait,” is a far cry from his best work with Black Sabbath. Only the anthemic “Let Me Hear You Scream,” with its arena-ready chorus, has any real staying power. Maybe it’s time for a family album.
