1 stars Houston we have a problem.

Ian Gillan, the heavy blues rock legend joined forces with heavy rock legends Black Sabbath: gotta be a winner? Either that or a crock of legendary proportions.

While never plumbing the depths of Headless Cross the album fails to inspire. Perhaps expectations are too great but whatever it is the undoubted abilities of Ian Gillan never gelled with the Sabbath vibe. In some ways its astonishing that Dio's did. Who would have thought it? Well, maybe given the experience of Dio it was worth chancing it with Gillan.

The song I like the least is Zero to Hero. Dragging it out for 7 minutes is just taking the p..... Digital Bitch (what a great title with equally great lyrics: She's so rich the digital bitch Yeah rockin') would be a second rate Saxon number.

Another one for the scrap heap. Remember CDs do make good beer mats, and LPs slowly warped over a lava lamp can seem like modern art if you take your time.
