The last Ozzy era Sabbath album is better than it is reported to be, as the reviewers here say. It is a very diverse album, not sticking to any particular sound. The title track and A Hard Road are classics, Johnny Blade, Juniors Eyes and Shockwave are all worth listening to and Air Dance starts with the most amazing riff then becomes something completely different. The whole album has a strange dark and sinister sound to it, but in a different way from the first album. Even though the music is good, you can almost hear the tension in the band.
For me though, the album falls of the wagon for the last three tracks and leaves me thinking would this have made a better EP?
