    I would use the word "safe" instead of uninspired. It was exactly what the line-up promised to deliver: A big wall of sound with those monolithic Iommi riffs, backed by Vinny's big plodding drums....

    Yeah, this bummed me out big time.

    Matt Barlow is, if not my favorite Metal singer, certainly in the top 3 or 4. My interest in the band took a major dive when he left before.

    Barlow could...

    Sorry, I can hear *some* similarity in the opening riff and the singer singing the title of the song, but beyond that, it's a reach. The funny thing is though, I actually like Shadow of the Cross...

    This is my most anticipated CD of 2010 (2011?) even more than the new Iron Maiden album, which is surprising.

    I am a little bummed about Pete not being on board, but if they are recording with...

    You guys really shouldn't sweat this so much. Yeah, it's distasteful, but I as a Dio fan would love to have a copy of the program, and I couldn't go to the service.

    Great write up Joe and a great video.

    I'm 31 now, and I got into Sabbath much later than you, around 1997. I didn't know much about the band's history, but I picked up a lot of the early Ozzy era...

    Wow!

    I found it on youtube.

    Let's get this out there soon. What a great send-off!

    These aren't real Christians. These are the people that Jesus referred to in the scriptures, when he said "Depart from me. I never knew you."

    I guess I'm no lawyer, but I don't know how they...

    Thanks for the good quotes. I don't know about his last recordings though. Where did you find the line from that last song?

    I always held out a faint glimmer that there would one day be a Rainbow reunion with Ritchie and Ronnie. My head knew it wasn't going to happen, as Ritchie has said he's tired of Rock N Roll and...

    Terrible news. Put me in a real melancholy today that will linger for awhile.

    To answer the OP's question:

    Oh yeah. Without a doubt. I got on the whole "Loudness Wars" soapbox after Metallica's "Death Magnetic" opened my eyes. The first album that made me wonder if I had...

    Great songs, but the album needs to be completely re-mixed. Google "Metallica Loudness Wars"

    The loudness wars are killing music imo.

    You're going to take to task the guy who wrote the lyrics for "War Pigs" because he might have a political bent?

    Geezer and Politics. Really? Would have never guessed.

    The IRS Albums Are Out Of Print? A Rant.

    So I'm helping a friend finish his Black Sabbath collection.

    No problem. This is Sabbath. All of this stuff should be readily available, right?

    I've noticed after searching that all of the...

    I like the Poster who said Sabbath was "in his DNA". That's how I feel, even though they have been semi-retired on my playlists for years now.

    Re: Make a Better Born Again

    I don't think anyone has said it in this thread, so I will:

    I think Tony Iommi knew *exactly* what he was doing when the final mix of Born Again was released.

    Look, Sabbath was coming out of...

    Re: Dio Years Enters Billboard At #54

    While I do agree with the anti-walmart sentiment overall, I will mention I picked up my copy of the Dio Years at a locally run CD shop. Price Tag: 18 dollars.

    That same CD at Walmart? 9.99

  23. Re: Best of the new tracks from The Dio Years?

    I really think Shadow of the Wind.

    That riff...I mean DAMN. That riff could knock a building over. That's just vintage Iommi/Sabbath. Slow, sludgy DOOM, like a monster lumbering towards you.
