4 stars Black Sabbath is a Giant! We all know that!

In the 80's they had returned as 'new band' after Ozzy Osbourne departure. Keyboards were always present in their records (for instance Rick Wakeman Aka Spock Wall on Volume 4 album), but this time they brought in Geoff Nicholls for the whole album.

But of course, the thing in Heaven And Hell (1980) are the vocals. Ronnie James Dio (who sadly died a couple of years ago) was now in the band, and he brought a new sound to the band. We can't deny this fact. Ozzy will always be THE frontman from Black Sabbath, but you just can't ignore Dio (and you shouldn't do that anyway) just like Ian Gillan on Born Again (1983) (another great record pos Ozzy).

'Die Young' alone probably could make the album resist the test of time, but Heaven And Hell (1980) have so much more, enjoy!
