1.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as they might say, 18 Mar 2008
This review is from: Live From Radio City Music Hall (Audio CD)
I have to be honest here and say that I was raised on Osbourne's Sabbath and the reviewer who says they were rubbish after 1971 wants his head testing. I like Heaven and Hell, that is to say the 1980 album, the first to feature RJD. I love RJD, he is one of the finest rock singers ever to grace a stage. Sadly, I don't like this.. I wanted too. I thought it was going to be superb, fresh reworkings of some classic songs, but Dio sounds tired, like he'd rather be somewhere else. The production is no better than the illfated Live Evil. The "epic" signature song, Heaven and Hell just goes on forever and you can't wait for it to end, Iommi doesn't even attempt one of the solos which was disappointing. Everything about Heaven and Hell or even Ozzy Osbourne for that matter stinks of past it rock stars going through the motions. Give it up guys, you've had your pay day.

I just looked at your reviews and you gave a Trivium album a 5 star review, so I suggest you stick to lightweight piss poor stuff like that.

Actually, despite being offensive, you're right - The Trivium didn't deserve 5 stars, so apologies for that one. No one else agrees with my review either so I shall just accept its a CD that obviously floats your boat and not mine. I'd like a definition of "lightweight piss poor stuff" as I don't think my tastes fit that criteria. Take it easy.

I thought your point was well made as your an Ozzy era fan of the band. Old Ronnie was obviously suffering and had been for some time. A great shame.

I can see your point but you should be a little easier on them. I don't think HAH did this for a quick buck. They probably knew RJD was a lot more ill than he was letting on publically at the time. And irrespective of how old any act is, provided they can still turn out a good gig then why should they stop? And I amongst many would be delighted to pay to see that line-up today-apart from the fact RJD now passed.
