This remastering job cures all of the ills that the Castle mastering suffered from. Spreading it out onto 2 discs has allowed Warner to let us hear Ronnie James Dios intersong patter and has let the pace of the album reflect the feel of a real gig as opposed to a mad run through.
The sonic improvements are numerous. Everyone can be heard easily, even the long buried keyboards of Geoff Nicholls. Anyone who says the vinyl was better has not heard this version. I had the vinyl and never heard loads of stuff that I picked up on the first play through of this double discer.
An essential purchase for fans of RJD helmed Sabbath.
