  • I'm not sure why you forgot about how awesome "Methademic" is...

    But it's time for you to get reacquainted.

    Heavy as hell, Symptom paced, talking about Drugs.

    Classic Sabbath

    Pretty sweet solo, more akin to 70's soloing by Tony.

    Enough change-ups and breaks to keep it interesting.

    Back on the playlist, no skipping.

    Who's forgotten about it? It's one of the Top 3 songs from 13.

      Probably in the minority here but I rather liked 13. Was not sabbath Bloody Sabbath, but it was a good album imho. Methademic is an amazing tune.

        I love 13 plus bonus tracks and all four of them, love The End too.

        Methademic is a great song, right up there with Snowblind and Sweet Leaf as far as drug songs go, but it will never touch Hand Of Doom, thatís possibly my all time favorite Sabbath song.

            I can hear why it didn't make the album.
            Undeniably great riff, but that is the norm for a song featuring Tony Iommi.

            Best I can say is is that at least it doesn't sound like a derivative version of one of their older, better songs.

            Sounds like Iommi solo with a bored, tired and unenthused Ozzy forced over the top.

              I tend to agree for the most part Wheels. Sounds very much like it could have come from an Iommi solo album. Kick ass none the less.

                There's no denying that it kicks ass, as Tony and Geezer locked in together is prone to do.

                    I thought Ozzy sounded like shit on most of it, but still a far better song than Loner or Live Forever, Should have been one of the main 8. Either of those other 2 songs would have been more appropriate on either set of extra tracks. 13 needed a drug song.

                      I actually like how Ozzy sounds on this. He almost seems to be taking on a character. He sounds like a snide gargoyle in a good way, best way I can describe it, until the "you try to stop, but it controls you..." where he has more energy and reach than most of the rest of the 13 album and extras.

                      IDK, for my money this and GID? are the only two songs where Ozzy is in a pocket, doing his best within the confines of his aged struggles.

                        Straight up , "13" can hold its own against ANY of the other 26 remaining Sabbath Albums... hands down!


                        Don't talk to me about rehashed material , if your not sitting on your hands - like say - Led Zep , and your releasing 27 album Gems in a row .... and outside of "8TH STAR" , "DEP" and "IOMMI" - two tracks , one single riff - "Don't You Tell Me" , "Black Oblivion" - You have NEVER rehashed , why not throw one BEAST of an album out there , with some beautiful Easter Eggs to past journeys - KUDOS SABBATH!


                        "13" is a double album MASTERPIECE , with a very specific 16 track release order , making it so darn special .... being the only double album to surpass both "The White Album" and "Degradation Trip" ..... absolutely love the double "thunder , rain" ending of album proper "Dear Father" and second side "Cry All Night" - making "Take Me Home" and "Isolated Man" like a double album encore ... brilliant.


                        Ranking this album's material is near impossible .....

                        16) Live Forever - LOVE! THIS! TRACK! ,,, ridiculously KOOL chorus!

                        15) NaÔvetť in Black - love how it resembles "Loser Gets It All" (Forbidden) , and ABSOLUTELY love the ending.

                        14) Methademic - agree with William , Ozzy owns this track , but in a very unorthodox way ,,, and that FN riff!! - so awesome.

                        13) Loner - fantastic drumming , the perfect simplicity just makes it ,, and that hanging bass note ... please give me more!

                        12) Take Me Home - JUST BEAUTIFUL!

                        11) Cry All Night - that mid section is to live for! ... one of the best moments on the entire release.

                        10) Isolated Man - That JAM! That JAM! That JAM! Iommi just brilliant.

                        9) Pariah - Song is a friggin monster , would be the best track on any other bands album ,, in fact this song is highly recommended to anyone who needs to understand the greatness of THIS band.

                        8) Peace Of Mind - album version and extended version ... "Sins Of The Father" (Dehumanizer) moment ... those DRUMS ,, in many ways my favorite track off of "13".

                        7) Zeitgeist - I CAN LISTEN TO THIS TRACK ONE HUNDRED TIMES A DAY , and 200 times on Sunday ...... friggin EXCELLENT song , excellent!

                        6) Age Of Reason - EPIC!

                        5) Season Of The Dead - a top 20 SABBATH composition! Ozzy outrageous!

                        4) GID? - Ozzy's best moment since 1978 ..... another Iommi MASTERPIECE .... loved when BSO was anticipating this moment , and that iHeartRadio version just "killed" it - what a moment , what a song!

                        3) Damaged Soul - a top 15 SABBATH moment .... absolutely BRILLIANT!

                        2) Dear Father - The most raw Ozzy moment since 1975 , IOMMI is genius , Geezer's creation , and Wilk destroys it!

                        1) ... my goodness , that "You Won't Change Me" (Technical Ecstasy) , "Deep Inside A Shell" (Fused) , "The Spell" (Fused) moment - gives me chills! .... frankly the top track on this album is one of Black Sabbath's finest moments EVER - top 5 , maybe even top 3 tracks they have EVER written .... and the last 3 mins are some of the most bone chilling moments in BLACK SABBATH'S ENTIRE CAREER - any era.

                        ..... simply put "END OF THE BEGINNING" is as good as Sabbath gets.



                        What an album!

                              13 is a soulless bore, there's no heart to it and I wish they never made it.

                              You guys are off your fucking rockers calling it a masterpiece...there's not one song on it that is "great" let alone a masterpiece.

                              I get that it's your respective, honour bound duties to lap this shit up but get real, it's one of the weakest albums to bear the name.
