In 1983 the seemingly unthinkable happened, Ian Gillan joined Black Sabbath, how could this be? This was (and frankly still is) a little bizarre two of the great hard rock bands join together how could it possibly last, well it didn't the `Born Again' line up only lasted one album and one tour, although poor old Bill Ward didn't even last that long (he was replaced by former ELO drummer Bev Bevan for the Born Again tour.

Now lets look at the music. This album as one might expect is very different to any Sabbath album before or since due to the influence of Ian Gillan. Ian provides all the lyrics for this album and does in my opinion a excellent job. Generally the standard of song writing here is very high with `Trashed', `Zero the Hero', `Disturbing the Priest' and `Born Again'. The latter of which being particularly of note as it can be seen as Sabbath attempting a 'Power Ballad' of sorts, although they pull it off with aplomb and its not nearly as American sounding as `No Stranger to Love' from the `Seventh Star' album or the sub-Aerosmith `Feels Good to Me' from `Tyr'. In my opinion this album features Gillan's last truly great vocal performance, some say its over the top and cheesy (probably the same `fans' who didn't like Dio), but to me Gillan is perfect on this album. As always Iommi provides skull crushingly heavy riffs (see `Zero the Hero' now that's Heavy!) and some beautiful melodic solo's as well as face melters. Geezer as per usual plays excellently through out, with his thunderous bass playing. Sadly I can't really tell how well Bill's doing as the production gives poor old Bill that horrendous 80's drum sound completely removing all of Bill's wonderful feel, it's no fault of Bill's. So it's only the production that lets this magnificent metal album down.

I first heard this album on a old cassette on its release and i was convinced the awful sound was due to the primitive bootlegging involved. 26 years later with a new CD on the player it sounds just as bad... Which is a crying shame as there are some great songs on this record like Zero the Hero and Born again, and some of the arrangments are pure Sabbath. The only element that isnt distorted by the production are Gillans vocals which howl ,scream, yelp and croon like a man quite enjoying his time with one of the iconic bands of the seventies. I saw them at Reading in 1983 playing "Smoke on the water" and Geezer Butler was loving it, as did i !
Maybe one day Tony will pull out the tapes and remix it.

i like it, not as much as the previous classics, but it is good and underrated one.
Gillan is a great vocalist and done very good job here.
Top tracks are: 'Disturbing the Priest', 'Digital Bitch' and 'Trashed'.
An album you nust have if you are a Black Sabbath fan, even if it not classic it still deserve the purchase.

So there's no Ozzie but Ian Gillan is in front. Forget pre-conceptions, ignore the names, stuff the pretensions....... This album is heavy magic. Riffs or what! Hot line, Disturbing the Priest where do you stop. So it's Gillan who cares. If you like the music and not the stupid preposterous posing by some people buy this album now. It's in my top 10 of all time.

Once you get past the awful cover, and into the music, what you have here is a master class in heavy rock. This is at a time when NWOBHM was at it's peak. Gillan had some solo success,Rainbow had just about fizzled out, Purple were in transition, and Dio was yet to be unleashed. Tho' not an obvious choice, Gillan fronting Black Sabbath was a worthy successor to the mighty RJD. This is not the Sabbath juggernaut with Ozzy and neither is it the RJD behemoth. This is a very good collection of songs that deserve to be heard without prejudice. All are on excellent form throughout. The second disc from the Reading Festival shows what a good live proposition they were. Only the version of "Smoke" hints at train wreck this project could have been but wasn't.

Bought it as Ian Gillan does the vocals, but it ends up being a Deep Purple sound without the keyboards, ok for some but not for me, there newer stuff like 13 is much better, proof that things can inprove with age!

Ian Gillan took over the role of lead vocals for this album and the performance he gives is in the same mould as when he was at his peak with Deep Purple. Apart from Gillan, all the old members are here, Iommi on guitar, Geezer on bass and Ward on drums and the old magic has not deserted them. Geezer give one heck of a performance on the track Digital Bitch and at times you feel as though the speakers are going to blow up due to the ferocity of the bass guitar. Trashed is the best track on the album, with its fast inventive guitar riffs and ear piercing vocals. The album also boasts two instrumental tracks, Stonehenge and The Dark and it was good to see this side to the bands writing abilities as both pieces are complex and full of intricate musical sections. With this album Sabbath have once more returned to their roots and given us one of the heaviest albums for years, it was a shame that Gillan left to rejoin Purple, for who knows where the journey could have taken them. A good album then and a must for any heavy metal fan.
