"Facing Hell" - I find the riffs here are pretty good listening. A good balance between dynamic, creative movement around the fretboard with low-end palm-muted chugging chords keep it interesting, although it's not the best guitar work on the album. I like the intro's clean guitar sound, but I'd also love to hear it played on a pipe organ.
"Dreamer" - I relate to this song's lyrics a lot. The abuse of the planet and humanity's struggle to come to our senses and adopt reasonable ways of living are among the themes. I consider myself a person enlightened to an above-average (though certainly not supreme) degree, and I often think these same things when I'm alone, or seeing some senselessness play-out on the news. To me it's just-about the least musically interesting track on this album, but that's probably because I look to Ozzy for the heavier things and this song is mostly piano, acoustic guitar and other clean sounds.
"No Easy Way Out" - Now, here's an excellent big-riff song. This showcases a lot more of the arena-rock/metal capabilities of Ozzy's outfit. It's not epicly thrilling, but it's great if you want some jams for driving, working-out, working on your car, whatever. There's a great guitar solo too.
"... That I Never Had" - I like the guitar here. I could do without the total audio-halt after the first time he sings "that I never had." It's jarring and throws-off the flow of the song. Also, some may find this song relies too heavily on its main-riff and for that reason doesn't have as much replay value. Still, better that Zakk's guitar-work be mobile and active, as it is here. Metal music has certainly seen less creative writing.
"Junkie" - Another one to which I relate. This is a song chastising someone who can't control their substance abuse - someone who obviously doesn't accept they even have a problem. I've been the person giving that lecture, trying to wake-up someone who defends their behavior with self-righteous "how dare you judge me" indignation, but you know the difference between their feeble defenses and someone who's truly retained their sovreignty.
"Black Illusion" - This song really reminds me of Ozzy's old-school "Prince of Darkness" image. Its musical movement harkens back to songs like "Believer" and "Diary of a Madman." He obviously hasn't forgotten how to spookeh. =P It's also a great counter-culture song because it calls-out the "powers that be," the "puppetmasters" of society for their silly religio-political game-playing.
Overall I give this album 4 stars. I wouldn't say that any of it is true-classic-material, but it's a good listen and full of progressive and thought-provoking lyrics.
