    Actually I'm truly hoping that won't make it to the album...naturally the music will mean a lot, but those lyrics....just awful.
    Yeah they ain't great, i can hear Ozzy moaning them over a slow riff though.

    They reminded me a bit of Megalomania's lyrics. Let's hope that's some kind of omen as it's one of my favourites.

      that's high praise from someone who thinks Dio was a great lyricist

        I know it's full of poser-rock crap, i was just wondering because of the Sab-article, but now Jack have shared the info, so i guess i don't need to buy it. Thanx Jack

        • I like the lyrics... I think thy're very good actually... it's goods to see Ozz writing too... they sound very similar in vibe to "Solitude.." same theme actually... isolation, solitude... like it alot.

              There are some similarites to Solitude in the theme...but I just don't like the simplicity of the lyrics...

              I never thought I'd be questioning the lyrics on this though, since usually Geezer is a hit not a miss...but one set of bad lyrics won't make a bad album.

                  I am one of those fans who think NSD is all that and more, but I have to be realistic and not think the new album will be the same as there old material when they were younger, but it still will be great, I just know it will.
                  Very kind words; thank-you. I try hard not to let my passion for Black Sabbath (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc) cloud my honesty and objectivity. As for NSD, I love that album too, but compared to some of the other music that is out there, by various groups including Sabbath, it was not their strongest effort by a long shot. I am rarely disappointed when I have modest expectations, and as a result, I will likely be pleasantly surprised by 13 when I hear it.

                    Keep an open mind... the lyrics to Solitude when read from a piece of paper sound stupid... "guess I will go home, sit down an moan.." They're about as "simple" lyric wise, as you can get... but they work in the content of the song...This could be the guy from Solitude, he's made peace with himself and his lost love... he's decided to be "happy" ... alone...

                    "Don't wanna see nobody ever and ever again
                    Don't you feel sorry, i'm just a happy isolated man"

                    Any music rock mag that has Sabbath on the cover is worth buying, or at least reading at the book stand if it's not wrapped...

                    • Jeez when everyone is going to stop being way too prejudicial on something they haven't heard or even read the final lyrics of yet ? Ozzy sketching or writing lyrics on a notepad could simply be a way of putting ideas down before refining them and making them more poetic and complete later one by Geezer or by himself! I take NOTHING for granted till I read and hear the music myself on the new record.

                      • Right well I'm definitely on the hunt for this Kerrang magazine. Pretty sure it costs about $15-$20- here in New Zealand though. Anything to help with the wait for the album is fine by me.

                        • Plus, if the songs are already done, why would Ozzy be writing lyrics? Maybe he's working on the next Sabbath album?

                          • How will you be listening to the new album the first time? On headphones? Big stereo or in the car? When reunion came out i bought a nice new pair of headphones and sat in the dark to give the cd my undivided attention to it. For this one i plan on getting it on vinyl and again in a dark room with new headphones, probably grados or akg.

                              Good question. As mentioned before, I am a huge vinyl collector, so, the plan was to have a small group of vinyl collector / Sabbath fans over to the house, but Mrs Now in Darkness and I have now decided the following:

                              If available on vinyl on day 1, we will buy that, but chances are that the original release will be CD and download only, with vinyl released later. So, we will grab the CD or LP, have dinner out, head back to my music room and share a bottle of wine. My collection of vintage lava lamps will be ignited, and we will enjoy every note in the dark, with lava lamp lighting for ambience. It'll be a lot of fun for us old farts, and reminiscent of what I did as a kid when I bought a new classic album, whether Black Sabbath or otherwise. Oh yeah, part two will be sleeping in late the next morning!

                              • I would say the Isolated Man is more likely an homage to John Lennon than anything. He has an amazing song called Isolation that I can see Ozzy totally inspired by. It wouldn't surprise me seeing Ozzy feeling a vibe from Lennon.
