"Can't wait to see them live in a few months. Hopefully they play more of their classics than stuff from this."

I'm seeing them in December. I'm just hoping Ozzy lives that long to be honest!

Nice review, this album could've been a disaster but it's pretty decent, that's all we could've hoped for.

I think albums like this are always going to make people want to rate it highly so much, that when they finally do come to listen to the album, their high expectations may be scuppered simply because the album is not all it's cracked up to be. Now the reason I think like this is because I'm preparing myself for a Sabbath sound which in no way matches the quality of the band's first few albums, until I hear the album itself. Until now I've taken the liberty to listen to "God is dead?", which, I'm sorry to say, really disappoints me. It's way too long, the lyrics are predictable and the overall sound is too simplistic for me to think otherwise. Hopefully the other songs won't be as bad.

Excellent review, Hernan.

I actually quite liked God is Dead? and found it to be one of the more memorable tracks on the album after my first listen. However, having listened to it again, I agree that it would have been stronger had it been a bit shorter.

I'm glad you say God Is Dead wasn't a strong point here, I really hate that song

@Brostep But does he R.I.O?

I'm glad they did this. It'll be a nice way to cap off a career of rampant success and total turds.

Too bad they couldn't do a final album with Dio to boot.

I like this a bit more than you, but this review describes the album almost perfectly.

I'm still undecided on that. Both are 3.5s for me at the moment.
