5 stars This is my favourite Black Sabbath album ever.

After two mediocre albums with Ozzy, the one from '76 and the worst album Ozzy era Never say die from '78 Sabbath return to the doomy sound that made them gods of dark heavy metal in the early '70. Again i mention, to me Sabbath is heavy metal and not a shred of prog in their music, not even the early works are not prog. Enter Dio ex - Rainbow, Elf. Voice is perfect for what they play, powerfull, and he give a new dimension to Sabbath music. When everybody belived that Sabbath is history, Dio's voice is a punch in the face and he said in a german magazin in 1980 " Who belive Sabbath is dead then those persons must come to at least on show of us - he will live the stadium with the tail between the legs". Nothing more to say, Dio was right. The best Sabbath album since Vol.4 in my opinion, and one of the best in their lenghty carere. I will not review track by track, but Heaven and Hell, Lady Evil and Walk away the best from here, the rest are also good too.5 stars and one of the best albums ever in music in general. Essential to any serious listner.
