1.0 out of 5 stars Just made for Ozzie's and Nostalgia's Sake!!!!! Very Dissapointing!!!, 12 Jun. 2013
This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
The long awaited album from Black Sabbath 13 is a tale of two Black Sabbath Re -Unions.
There is the one here with Ozzy and the Ronnie James Dio Heaven and Hell(Black Sabbath all in Name) and the two could not be more distant from one another.
13 tries too hard to be like the first few albums that Sabbath made which were classics but the Band under Tony Iommi had moved a lot more forward than those days with Ronnie James Dio.
The problem here is that the Band are trying to recreate the old days with Ozzy Osbourne and it all fails dismally and it all comes across that it has all been done for nostalgia's sake.
End of the Beginning and God is Dead are not a patch on Bible Black or Heaven and Hell with Ronnie Dio and the riffs all seem like that are trying to hard to recycle the old riffs from the first three Black Sabbath Albums and all seems rather downbeat and tired.
All this Album does for me is to tell me how much Ronnie James Dio is missed as he would be turning in his grave if he ever heard this.
Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler are the driving force behind Sabbath and i wouldn't mind betting that in reality even they are disappointed by this release and are thinking what direction do we take now for the Band as Ozzy Osbourne still has a voice but it is nowhere near as powerful as it was and we wish Ronnie Dio was still here as we could have made a much better album.
All in all it all seems like a Black Sabbath Nostalgia Trip which has failed disastrously.

Poorest albums in your opinion only. If something is hyped and you thing it's crap then it's crap. Personally I love it hype or no hype.

1 star for 13 = attention seeking loser.

Also in the first couple of weeks of release it was only £4.99 which is another reason it got to no.1
