Boring, Derivative, Forgettable,
This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
Ozzy Osbourne is the only 'singer' I know that gets praised simply for not sucking. He may sound slightly better (thanks to umpteen studio takes no doubt) than he has in years but he's still awful. His snail-paced enunciation throughout this contrived material makes already unnecessarily long crushingly dull. If you can stomach Ozzy you might be able to get through this all style no substance mess. Long boring filler songs like "End Of The Beginning", "God Is Dead?", "Age OF Reason", etc...all sound like the same bloody song. Ssssssssslow and ploding. There's only two songs hat rise above mediocrity- the "Planet Caravan"-like "Zeitgeist" and the bluesy "Damaged Soul". I listened to this disc 2 times through and I doubt I will ever do that to myself again. I'll keep the two good songs and forget the forgettable rest. Fail.

Mr. I. Ward says:
Once again the Black Sabbath police crush all dissent!
This album is nowhere near the 70's classics!

Can I be an excessively opinionated fan too?
Just glad I didn't heed the naysayers such as the insatiable Ward here.
Maybe this solidifies my super hard-core fandom: I'm not really digging the extra tracks.
