Critic Reviews

  • A fiery good-bye to the USA from the Prince of Darkness.

    Rating: 80/100
    The Arts Desk
  • Despite everything you may have heard about Ozzy being on his last legs, Patient Number 9 unequivocally does not sound like the work of a man living on borrowed time. Instead, it sounds like the Prince of fucking Darkness having an absolutely smashing time, with a bunch of his mates and, weirdly, a newfound sense of artistic ambition.

    Metal Hammer
  • The irrepressible rocker offsets his usual forays into the occult with moving contemplations of illness on a star-studded return.

    Rating: 80/100
    The Guardian
  • While perhaps not as emotionally loaded as Ordinary Man, Patient Number 9 better captures the mischievous, defiant energy of heavy metal's original madman.

    Classic Rock
  • Reports may have focused on his ill-health, but the Prince of Fucking Darkness sounds full of vim and vigour on album number 13. Lucky for some.

  • On Patient Number 9, the old devil’s still burning.

    Rating: 80/100
    The Telegraph
  • If nothing else, it's pleasing to see Ozzy still carrying on and still being The Prince Of Darkness. But Patient Number 9 is also, like its predecessor, a massive celebration of life and friendship and the magic power of music.

    Kerrang!
  • Even with that fatalistic perspective sometimes peeking through, Ozzy sounds hypercharged throughout Patient Number 9, continuing the unlikely late-in-the-game comeback he began on Ordinary Man, and besting that album by taking more chances.

    Rating: 80/100
    AllMusic
  • Even as Osbourne clambers from the grave in its second half and sets about wreaking undead revenge on his enemies, an anguished fatalism soaks the record.

    Rating: 60/100
    The Independent
  • Ultimately, this doesn’t sound like a long goodbye from one of heavy metal’s foremost heroes and founding fathers, but a playful, defiant and gloriously over-the-top statement that screams the show must go on.
