2.0 out of 5 stars A new genre is born., 9 Oct. 2014
This review is from: KP: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Add 'fictional autobiography' to the list of new book genres. Well-written but it's a desperately negative narrative with absolutely no perspective or ,in fact, focus on any of the many good aspects of KP's career to date. It fails to demystify him as this 'flawed genius' and in general it is so disappointing and so terribly predictable.

4.0 out of 5 stars solid indeed, 10 Jun. 2013
This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
Let's be honest and say that Ozzy's last great album with Sabbath was 1975' SABOTAGE, so it was hard to know what to expect, 38 years later. In all honesty, 13 is a solid record. Much fuss was made about the absence of Bill Ward but in all truth 13 doesn't have much material that would have benefited from Ward's distinctive swing style drumming anyway. Standouts are ' Loner' and the blues- influenced ' Damaged Soul' and with the exception of the shaky ' Live Forever', Sabbath have delivered a very worthy edition to their discography. Haters will hate though - they always do - but this is much better than many will lead you to believe.
