    Sabbath was at their all time low at that point. They were a struggling band and needed Dio to revive them.

    Ozzy was viewed in the industry as a has-been already. He was lucky to get Randy...

    The drummer in my brother's early 90's band played for Geezer in the late 80's. He described Geezer's warm up technique which, apparently, took forever.

    But I'm really surprised that Geezer had...

    I sure would like to see Sharon lose. Bob is just one of many people she has screwed over and essentially stolen money from.

    Bob earned his money, but hasn't received all of it. Without him (and...

    I bought the set through Amazon, and, overall I think the remasters are good. Improvements for the most part.

    Except for Strange Highways, which needed the least remastering. The high end and...

    We just have completely different preferences.

    Sadly, that is true, which was why I noted that he had lung cancer and had bee misdiagnosed. That's what killed him, unfortunately.

    We can still talk about him. He was a vital part of the DIO...

    Anyone have the 1996 Castle remastered versions of Vol 4 & SBS? If so, how do they sound compared to the original WB CD's?

    I guess my biggest problem with the remasters is that they sound like someone turned up the volume but put cotton balls in your ears. They're louder, but more muffled. They sound flatter, less...

    Yeah, I think we just have differing tastes on what sounds, "Good."

    For me, I prefer the remasters to update the sound somewhat. The original masters were made with records in mind, and they have...

    But if you balance it out with more low end and low mids it becomes a more well rounded sound without losing that crispness, clarity, and definition.

    The new CD's have very little crispness,...

    I'm just comparing them song by song, same parts of the song one after the other between the two versions. The remastered versions are missing a ton of high end and high mids. They are genuinely...

    I was in WalMart last week and saw that WB/Rhino finally released the 2012 remasters for Vol 4 and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

    I love songs that change tempos, time signatures, etc. "Can I Play With Madness," is a great example.

    The changes on Scream don't fit together. The songs are not cohesive. You can have changes...

    My biggest gripe with Scream is that the songs are totally disjointed - they have little cohesiveness to them. They sound like they were Frankensteined together from parts of different songs in many...

    I'm not a big fan of No More Tears (the album), either. To me it sounds like Sharon brought in Pop songwriters and they tried to write what they thought would be Heavy Metal songs. I hear Pop and...
