5.0 out of 5 stars Gargantuan Super(Jugger)naut, 18 Jun 2013

This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
This album simply had to deliver given the catalogue of events that occurred prior to it's release and it does not disappoint. Sparse production (sounding amazingly powerful) with astonishing execution and delivery from the band. Rubin was clearly onto something when he sat the band down to simply listen to early recordings to capture the "feel and atmosphere" of the defining sound they carved out in the metal genre all those years ago. In summary, awesome production that is super heavy, great lyrics and music that tip a hat to the old but will no doubt appeal to the young who with fresh ears will be hooked. Sabbath have created an astonishingly heavy set of songs that do justice to the highlights of the past but with enough of a contemporary twist to place them at the top of the tree in the current music climate. The industry with it's tired ears and fans craving for something "real" needed this album. Here it is......

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 14 Dec 2012

I wondered how this album would stand up so many years down the track from the bands last release and deliberately waited to review so I could give a fair appraisal after "living" with it for a time. In truth It's an astonishing piece of work with all the hallmarks of this most interesting and innovative band. Eclectic mix of song structures and delivery, interesting and odd time signatures on the one hand, crushingly heavy riffs all backed up by intelligent lyrics and peppered by the hooky Soundgarden melodies that always made them stand out from the crowd on the other. This album will stand the test of time along with the other albums. In summary a " no brainer " if you are already a fan - just buy it. If you are new to the group do yourself a favour and immerse yourself in this release - then discover the previous ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fierce - visceral early Rush!, 17 April 2012

This review is from: Rush ABC 1974 (Audio CD)
Early and extremely fierce Rush recording, no frills with an FM sounding radio production that gives the music a charm and life of it's own. If you like Rush and appreciate the early no holds barred simpler 3 piece attack - just buy it. This recording simply ROCKS and stands as a great document of that era. A great release.
