After years of rumours ,will they, wont they,Ozzy and the boys reunited for a couple of gigs from which this recording comes.

From the opening sirens of 'War Pigs' to the last notes of 'Paranoid',the band takes us on a time machine back through the hallowed era with classic afer classic,'Black Sabbath','Iron Man''Children Of The Grave''Sweet Leaf','Snowblind' & 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath',they're all here,while selected album cuts such as 'Electric Funeral','Spiral Architect'have the crowd begging for more.

And there is more , a stunning 'Faires Wear Boots', a visceral 'Dirty Women', a jaw dropping 'Into The Void' and a breath taking 'Orchid/Lord of this World' with 'N.I.B' & 'Behind The Wall Of Sleep' making up the numbers.Interestingly the booklet has a set list which shows 'The Wizard' and 'Symptom of the Universe',sadly nether made the album,they would have been the icing on the cake.

This is a fantastic live album and shows you what all the fuss was about,stunning band stunning songs,sadly the 2 studio tracks cannot hold a(black?)candle to the earlier output and the planned studio album never happened.

The whole set is presented in a digipak with excellent booklet and guitar pic.5 stars all the way

From the first second you hear that loud, War Pigs siren to the last word on Paranoid you enter a world of Sabbath. The band playing to their full pontential and Ozzy interacting with the crowd. From letting them sing every second line of War Pigs to spending 2 minutes getting the crowd to shout louder before he starts Iron Man, Ozzy brings out the real noise, life and wonder of Sabbath. This shows that Black Sabbath are a better live band than a studio band since the last two song kinda run away with themselves and drift into a world of true weirdness. All in all Reunion is a true tribute to the Sabb

The definitive live Black Sabbath album. Ozzy's voice is not in its prime but it doesn't matter: if you like Sabbath it's a must. The album shows why they defined heavy metal; songs like War Pigs could have been written yesterday and they sound awesome as a group. Don't hesitate to get this if you like Black Sabbath, highly recommended.

This album came out the day before my 17th birthday and I tell you something, after listening to this I can tell you that I am absolutely gutted that I couldn't get a ticket for this concert the previous year cos my parents made me revise for my G.C.S.E. exams. For anyone who saw this concert it was probably the best show they had ever seen a bunch of forty five year old blokes from the promised land (Birmingham my hometown) do.Sure they couldn't replicate the lack of production 70's sound and Ozzy couldn't sing the chorus vocals on "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", both of which have contributed to only a four star rating, but to hear these classics done so well in concert must have been even more electrifying than hearing them on record. Along with the classic renditions of "Paranoid","War Pigs","Children of the Grave" etc, fans are treated to two new Osbourne/Iommi compositions "Psycho Man" and "Selling My Soul" which proved there was still life in the old demon yet (the proof being their last supper concert at the NEC in'99 which I did manage to get a ticket for!)

This is a great live album from the original masters of heavy metal.From the moment Ozzy utters his first "yea you f.....s" to the last note of paranoid this has class written all over it.
All the best songs from their career are here,my favorites electric funeral and fairies were boots-nice to here them loud and v heavy.
The concert is complete from their second night at the NEC Birmingham uncut and no overdubes. As a Sabbath nut this is indispensable,the only live Sabbath album you need-forget the rest.
If you are a metal fan buy this and listen to the original and best metal band ever.As a ps there are also two new songs at the end studio recordings what shows what might be if they ever record a new album.

Fantastic live album, but don't play it when your granny is round due to Ozzy's language! Arrived in time and as described.

I might only be 16, and most kids my age don't listen to Sabbath,I'll admit, but they should!
Ozzy hasn't the best voice, but he is an amazing live performer, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward are a great band, with heavy riffs, loud drumming, and Ozzy shouting, screaming and using the f word constanly a great live performance it can only be.
I had my doubts before hand, after 20 years, or whatever, but they still sound amazing!
Most of the songs are good to brilliant, Behind the Walls of Sleep and Into the Void are rubbish and samey to other stuff, but the crowd joining in on War Pigs, the timeless classics likeSabbath Bloody Sabbath, Snowblind, Children of the Grave, and of course Paranoid are all fantastic.
The standout track for my however is Black Sabbath, the part where it speeds up and Tonys amazing solo, takes the breathe away.
An old band, but certainly worth a place in the cd collection. (a really good booklet comes with cd as well!)
