  1. A great review man. Glad to see I’m not the only one who tknhis the Dio-fronted Sabbath albums were the best. I agreed whole-heartedly with your review: while the album featured a great deal of the doom stylings of Sabbath, it was sadly lacking in the fist-pumping, stadium-busting category (a similar complaint could also be leveled against AC/DC’s Black Ice. Why do my heroes have to get old?)An interesting note though: I also thought Dio’s vocals were a tad underwhelming in this album, but I wonder if it’s age at work here. I mean when I saw Heaven and Hell play a while back, he was belting it out almost note-perfect to the previous records. It would be interesting to find out who was the driving influence behind this album: perhaps Iommi was trying to bring the sound closer to the early Sabbath work? But that’s just fan speculation…
