    The Best of Zakk Wylde's Post-Ozzy Career

    It's tough to call this album a "best of" compilation for Black Label Society seeing as how it covers some of Zakk's work before BLS ever got started. Track 1, "Machine Gun Man," was recorded by Zakk's first post-Ozzy band Pride & Glory, and track 2, "Dead as Yesterday," is from 'Book of Shadows', Zakk's only solo album. Also, tracks 13 through 16 were from Zakk and Nick Catanese's acoustic tour, which is hard to categorize as a full BLS performance. For me, this comp. serves more as a career retrospective for Zakk than for Black Label Society. If you're looking for a single-disc collection of Zakk's work, look no further than this album right here! What struck me first and foremost about these songs was not Zakk's insane level of talent on the guitar but the unexpected quality of his singing voice. His vocals on "Machine Gun Man" and "Dead as Yesterday" are downright beautiful, which is saying something for a guy with one hell of a metal growl! The studio tracks are absolutely KILLER--especially "Stillborn," which features guest vocals by Ozzy, and "In This River," which is Zakk's tribute to his friend Dimebag Darrell--and the live acoustic tracks help to round out the edge and fury of the heavier material while adding a new dimension to Zakk's music. I highly recommend this album for anyone looking to get a taste of Zakk Wylde's music. A near-perfect compilation album, it's sure to please just about any music fan out there. My only suggestion: CRANK IT TO 11.

    My brother loved it

    I got this and the dvd for my brother for Christmas. When first opened, he went on and on about a live in Detroit joint, and at first I thought he was unhappy w/it. So a couple days later, he called and thanked me profusely for the gift after having listened to it and also to thank me for not buying the censored version to save a few bucks lol
