4 stars Another interesting album by the Sabb. This a real hard rockin' album, with a few surprises and sevealr inconsistencies. Wheels of Confusion is a solid epic never faltering. Tomorrow's Dream is an unexciting but passable rocker. Changes is a keyboard led ballad with Ozzy giving an unusually emotional vocal. FX is the strange one here. It meanders pointlessly consisting of purely sound effects. Sabbath's stab at ambient? Supernaut is a riff driven return to form. Cornucopia is superbly heavy song. Snowblind is a surprisingly catchy ode to cocaine. Laguna Sunrise starts with a good idea but gets repetitive. St. Vitus' Dance is quirky and catchy and short. We end with the mini-epic Under the Sun, which ismuch in the same style as the opener.

Overall a solid album but flawed album. I give a 3'5 rounded up to a four. Not very prog, will appeal to metal/hard rock lovers.
