vastly underrated Sabbath masterpiece
on 5 March 2004
To me, this is one of the best Dio era albums.Yes, it has been slated by many sabbath fans for various reasons but the quality of the music speaks for itself.
We all know that during the recording of this albums all wasn't well between Ronnie and cozy.This caused alot of friction within the band but hey presto, cozy breaks his pelvis and Vinny appice is brought in and then the chemistry of mark II or III? kicks in.
every song is heavy (even by Sabbath standards!) with some of Dio's best vocals ever . This isn't Heaven&Hell style suff more of a ninety's take on thst era.
I think the songs really hold up even 12 years down the line. Tony's guitar sound on this album is really happening and we certainly haven't heard him sound as angry for along time! please buy this album!!
