"I LOVE Ozzy Osbourne.He is awesome live.He has one of the best stage presences in metal.But this DVD is not a real concert.What this is the music from the Live and Loud CD played in the background played over a bunch of crappy video footage.Half of it doesn't even belong here.The music is great,but the video footage is what messes this up.If you want a real Ozzy concert,buy "Live At Budokan".If you want to get the REAL concert this was taken from,buy the CD.Also,The DVD does NOT have instant chapter access like the case says so.Plus,the DVD is two sided.This means that you have to flip it over in the middle of the concert."
Great music !

"i really love the sound of ozzy since the days of BS. it was even better together with randy and then the the time together with zakk - it was great - live & loud is one of the best albums ever ... BUT !!!who the hell is the editor of this video ?i want to see zakk mistreating his guitar - but what do you see in this video. one cut per second. in one guitar solo, you see zakk with 3 different guitars, ozzy pulling water on the crowd, ozzy with pony-hair, ozzy with a shirt, ozzy half-naked, 2 times michael, and randy playing another song ... - AND EVERYTHING IN JUST ONE 15s - GUITAR SOLO !!!technical this dvd is also diappointing: 2 sides - turn around at halftime - like old vinyl. no subtitels to sing along for newbees.i really like the way ACDCs "no bull" is made. the concert without any trash. you can see angus and his gibson and brian talking to the crowd. just one concert at a beautiful arena. you can hear it as often you want without getting bored of interviews. the interviews are on a second track on the dvd. that is the way it should be."
This is one of the greatest videos ever!!!!

"I went to an Ozzy concert not long after I watched this video and I got a real feel for what it was like by watching the video. I happen to think the thing about the muffins was hilarious.This is Ozzy in peak condition and anyone who says this video sucks should have their head bitten off. His band, Zakk, Randy, and Mike, are some of the best musicians in the business. I give this video 5 stars but only because there isn't a higher rating."
Gave me a headache

"At first I thought: "Ozzy live on DVD. Mmmmmm. My cup runeth over." I got about half-way through and then I had to turn it off. First off: it has an awful bottom end mix. The bass and kick drum blur together in a wash of mud with very little pitch definition. It was only when I cranked it up to wall-shaking levels that I said "Oh THAT'S how it's supposed to sound" Come on, I know the title says "Live and Loud" but must we take it so literally? Not everyone has a powerful sound system, and most of us have neighbors. I guess the producers figure Ozzy fans don't actually listen to the musical quality, but rather want something massize and bone-crushing to bang your head too. Then there's the video: Dizzying. I understand that Ozzy is all about sensory overload, but I just couldn't take it. Even in small doses it's too much. A 2 second shot from any camera angle seems to be the max. I'm not exaggerating. Too many gratuitous shots of the females taking off their tops. Too many shots of very scary looking pierced, dyed and tatooed fans. It detracts from the actual music. And continuity leaves something to be desired. Almost right away, one can tell that the footage was edited from at least two different concerts. Concert A, stage left, two seconds. Cut to concert B, stage center, one second. You get the idea.I dunno, maybe I'm just more of a purist. I'm not interested in the "whole concert experience" here, I just want the songs. On the upside, the selection of music is wonderful. Most of my favorite songs are present, and then some. Many different tracks that span his career.Like Oz says: "Don't blame me." Well I don't. I blame everyone else who produced this."
