Biography

Black Sabbath has been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late '60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and ...

Terrible '80s production hampers an otherwise solid solo album from Tony Iommi and Glen Hughes. The record company forced the "Black Sabbath" tag, but it's now known that from the Born Again album onwards, Iommi was against using the Sabbath name. With the dissolution of the Born Again lineup (Ian Gillan going off to rejoin Deep Purple), this was a new start for Iommi and a new band.

So, ignore the cover and see this as it is, an Iommi/Hughes album freed from the weight of the past. The songs are very good. Iommi and Hughes have worked together on several albums since, but this is my favorite of their collaborations. The title track, "Seventh Star" "Angry Heart" and "In Memory" are my top favorites, moody, haunting affairs, with great subtle vocals from Hughes, while "In for the Kill" and "Danger Zone" are good straightforward rockers.

Sadly, the album is in dire need of a remix. The dated production really stands out, as it emasculates the music to give it a syrupy, synth-pop sound. I couldn't even detect a bass until halfway through the album. Why they saw fit to bury that in the mix, I'll never understand, but it was a crap few years in the music industry, where everything was overproduced. Awful, awful, awful production. Iommi's been working on remixing Born Again, which is understandable, but this album needs it just as much, and is worth it because the songs are good, and would benefit.

The live album is a nice treat. Yes, it's of bootleg quality, but who cares?! It's great to have it, and there may not have been professionally recorded material from this very short tour (Hughes departed shortly to be replaced by Ray Gillen, who departed even quicker to be replaced by Tony Martin).

Anyone who might have the Castle release of this CD from the 90's need not rush out and buy this version. I was very excited when I heard about this release and held high hopes, but upon receiving this CD I am disappointed. I'll begin with the bonus disc, which is a live show from 1986. This sounds like a crappy bootleg, and does not meet the release standard that previous deluxe editions have set (for alternate example see Def Leppard's Pyromania release which is stellar). The sound is muddy and when listening through a headset actually pans from left to right during the show, which is very annoying. I think the performance is strong, and the set list is very interesting but from a sound point of view, it's very poor. I would have liked a DVD from one of the shows, or demos. As for the remastered disc itself, I really don't see much difference between this and other releases of the same CD. I find my Castle release just as clear sounding, and in fact is much lounder than this release. I do love this album and it ranks as one of my favs by Sabbath. I feel if you already own a good version of this disc, there is no reason to rush out and buy it. If you don't own the disc and would like to get it, I would begin by trying to find the Castle version from the 90's. If that fails, then buy this one, but don't have high expectations for the bonus disc, it's just not that good. I hope this review is helpful for most of you. Now, all I need to have is a deluxe edition of Born Again and The Headless Cross.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this album when it came out, and saw Tony and the band at the Edinburgh Playhouse during the '7th Star' tour. (I was in the front row and gave Tony the 'evil eye' sign as he started the first riffs of the concert, and he gave it back to me with a smile.)

A couple of the tracks are not of the finest vintage - and are let down by weak lyrics rather than the music. The music itself is gorgeously crafted, highly melodic and haunting.The title track features one of Iommi's best riffs and still has the power to put chills up my spine when it starts.

It is also good to have a couple of 'bittersweet' love songs which are not just about Evil Women, Country Girls and Lady Evil's...

Watching Iommi play live was something else. 'Beauty' is not a word normally associated with Sabbath but every note was there, with magic and passion.

As a fan of the Tony Martin Era Black Sabbath, I was happy to buy the album after hearing mixed reviews, just as the 5 Tony Martin fronted albums had. This is one of the most underrated Black Sabbath albums, just because it is seen as "Black Sabbath Featuring Tony Iommi" Rather than an Iommi solo album.

Every Track on this album is at worst GREAT! with some of my Favourite Sabbath Numbers included ("No Stranger to Love" / "Seventh Star" / "Angry Heart" / "In Memory") Having said that "Heart Like A Wheel" is the weakest track on here and leaves me track-skipping most times I listen to this album.

This album has a great energy similar to the Dio Era and bridges that era to the Tony Martin Era perfectly. Ignore people hating on this album purely because "Its' not Sabbath" or "Ozzy's better"

Great Album... Simple

Enjoy

All is well with the ongoing reissue program except for the fact that the live disc included here is of HORRENDOUS sound quality and prospective buyers should've been told so in the advertising and packaging. It's no more than an audience bootleg and that's a real shame.
