I sort of dig some of what they're going for here but that "Iheartradio on demand" was such a fucking turn off lol

Need to hear it without that

Starts off slow, gets better about 6 1/2 minutes in...... If the album sounds like the end then I have hope, otherwise.......

yeah, and the riffs that sound like they could be good just sound like recycled riffs from the 70s stuff. Booooooring.

Tony Iommi is one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Man can write some great riffs when he has cancer.

Also the actual song sounds a lot better than that stream. You can actually hear Geezers bass throughout the song

Is pretty decent and enjoyable. Still, this song could be a little bit shorter.Anyways, I like long epic songs and Iommi's solo is very good so is time to play this until midngiht.

I had no trouble detecting the bass at all

I didn't think this was that bad. In fact I thought it was pretty good. The whole repetitive riff-driven structure does kind of make the song feel stagnant a bit, and I get that it's to set the menacing atmosphere, but it could use some trimming.

It's kind of a return to Master Of Reality's slow, doomy feel, which I for one am happy to hear. The guys don't sound too bad. I was expecting this to be mediocre at best, but it sounds it could be pretty decent.

Based on that song alone it's a 3-3.5/5 for me. And call me whatever you want but I never really clicked with older metal like Sabbath (or even Maiden).

I really like it actually. Great to hear Ozzy again, and the latter half rules. I can agree that's it's slow, but as someone mentioned, it seems as if they're going for that eerie Master of Reality sound. Can we all agree this is far better than the last few albums at least?

Based on the editor review on itunes it's not even a standout track. This gives the album some hope of being a 3.5 to 4 average.

Tony's guitar sound definitely hasn't suffered from modern recording technology, that's for sure.

obviously. if this would have come out in the 70's it would have sounded better because they would have been on drugs

Is it just me, or does Ozzy sounds really lacklustre nowadays?
Glad Brad Wilk doesn't go crazy and if I hadn't already known it wasn't Bill Ward on the kit I wouldn't have thought otherwise.

Is it that bad that this is a long song? If your attention span is that of a goldfish, then yes. Have you ever listened to Black Sabbath? This is a great song and interestingly enough Ozzy's voice is good. I'm not writing for Iommi or Geezer because they are almost always great.

As always, to each his own but for those who know Black Sabbath will most probably like the song.

The production on ozzy's voice is a tad odd, otherwise really enjoyed the track with the lyrics only being the truly terrible component of the song (or what I've heard at least), all the rest was damn groovy and I'm having good hopes for the album now
