No More Tears is the sixth solo studio album by English heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. Released on 17 September 1991, the album charted at number 17 on the UK Albums Chart[3] and number seven on the US Billboard 200 albums chart.[4] No More Tears spawned four singles which reached the top ten of the US Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including the number two "Mama, I'm Coming Home",[5] and the Grammy-winning track "I Don't Want to Change the World".[6] Along with 1980's Blizzard of Ozz it is one of Osbourne's two best-selling solo albums in North America, having been certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA[7] and double platinum by CRIA.[8] It was Osbourne's final album to feature drummer Randy Castillo and longtime bassist and songwriter Bob Daisley.

Overview[edit]

Guitarist Zakk Wylde contributed songwriting to the album, while Motörhead bassist/vocalist Lemmy Kilmister wrote the lyrics for six songs; however, only four were used on the album.[9] Although Mike Inez appeared in the album's videos and promotional tours, long-time Osbourne collaborator Bob Daisley plays bass on the entire album. Inez is credited as a writer for the title track; although he does not perform on the actual recording, the intro bass riff was composed by him.[10]

The 2002 reissue of No More Tears featured two additional tracks entitled "Don't Blame Me" and "Party with the Animals". Both tracks had originally been released in 1991 as B-sides.

According to professional wrestler and Fozzy lead vocalist Chris Jericho, when asked about the title of the song "A.V.H.", Osbourne told him it stands for "Aston Villa Highway", an homage to the football team he and his Black Sabbath bandmates followed as young men growing up in Birmingham.[11]
