5.0 out of 5 stars Different to the early albums but still good (actually better!), 29 April 2008
This review is from: Technical Ecstacy (Audio CD)
This album has often attracted luke warm reviews but I think it is marked down just because it is not as raw as Sabbath's early albums. I actually love it and am writing this (my very first Amazon review) to defend it and urge you to give it a chance.

Iommi's guitar sound on this album is awesome. Ozzy's vocals are as emotional as ever and match the newer Sabbath sound perfectly. There are some fantastic songs too, You Won't Change Me, Gypsy and Dirty Women particularly. She's Gone and Rock N Roll Doctor provide a bit of variety and are also excellent. If you haven't heard this album, buy a remastered version and give it a chance.

I've been playing all the Ozzy era Sabbath albums for more than 25 years and I'd personally rate Technical Ecstasy in my top 3. Finally, you ought to do yourself a favour and also buy Sabotage. Their finest offering which again does not always get the recognition it should.
