This is one of my favourite Sabbath Albums. It has a lot of suggestions as to what was to come for both Ozzy and Sabbath. There are some great melodic features that show up in Ozzy's later career, as well as some scorching guitar solos (compare the sound of the solo in Shockwave to that in Over and Over from Mob rules). Other bits are almost prog rock, see Air Dance. Much as I love the Dio era stuff, I find myself wondering what the next Ozzy/Iommi Sabbath album would've sounded like.
