autotune/time shift tools will fix ozzy in the studio. If the writing is there per the old days, I'm into it at least as an album, but I may not go out to see them play it etc.
With Brad Wilk in the mix, it makes me wonder if they are going to put some kind of powerpop booty rock album together, which is not something I would be interested in. But, it's Rick Rubin, I hope he gets them to put up the good writes they are capable of.
