Classic Album Review: Various Artists | Ozzfest 2001: The Second Millennium

This is probably a cheaper, more durable tour souvenir than that band T-shirt.

This came out in 2001 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


Like nearly every multi-band package tour soundtrack, this latest instalment of the heavy metal circus Ozzfest boasts a handful of big name acts (Black Sabbath revisiting their classic The Wizard; Marilyn Manson spitting out his sardonically titled Love Song, Slipknot performing their New Abortion) and a whole lotta second-stage filler (American Head Charge? Pure Rubbish? OTEP? Nonpoint?).

If you can mosh through all the flotsam, this is probably a cheaper, more durable souvenir than that band T-shirt. But from what I hear, if you really wanna replicate the Ozzfest experience, you could just lock yourself in a closet with eight friends for 12 hours, set off a smoke bomb every 10 minutes, play Sabbath’s Reunion live CD at full blast and charge yourself $6 for a bottle of water.
