3 stars Mid '80's cought Black Sabbath in crisis, the main man Tony Iommi is the single member of the band who remains motionless in the band, the rest were coming and going like pleoples in store. Big emprovement over previous one Born again - who was for me a desaster, but aswell more hard rock and even in places some AOR elements are to be shown here, but more mature and inventive than Born again. In places i can trace the doomy feeling of the early albums and from Dio era, on pieces like Turn to Stone, Seventh Star - the best piece from here and Heart Like a Wheel, the rst are only good to listen from time to time. Another album another vocalist, now the legent from Trapeze - Glenn Hughes, he done a good jobe here, i like his voice, fits most of the time very well in this kind of hard and hevy music, but i prefer Dio much more. Another album another drummer, now Eric Singer who came from Lita Ford fame and later in the early '90's will see him in another legendary band Kiss. All in all a good album in my opinion, well, far from early years and even from Dio and Tony Martin era, but enjoyble most of the time. Somthing that worth mentioning is that in 1986 Black Sabbath appear for the first time in original line-up after Ozzy left the band in Live Aid - Philadelphia. So a big 3 stars for Seventh star, good one and maybe at some point only for Sabbath fans, but if you listen to all previouses albums worth investigate this one too.
