2 stars Possibly one of the weakest Ozzy Sabbath albums (along with 'Never say die'). Side one of original vinyl was great (although short at less than 17mins) and only 6 real tracks on the album,non of them over long. Would people almost call this an EP or mini-album if relesed nowadays?!

The real problem is side 2 (last 4 tracks). It sounds like a retarded version of side one, and almost like reworked throw-outs from first 2 albums. No real vitality or anything new to offer.

So, as a metal/rock album it gets 3 at best. On a prog level only 2 (more than 1 due to some ramblings in the 2nd half of the album I guess).
