2 stars The last Ozzy Sabbath album and, after Technical Ecstacy, I'd say the weakest Ozzy-era album. Though not an abomination, it is not a very consistent album. There are some solid, rocking tracks in Never Say Die and A Hard Road (the latter being, shock horror, a Black Sabbath song which is actually cheerful), and Junior's Eyes and Air Dance are also fairly enjoyable. Most other tracks, while not bad per se, are forgettable. The album peters out towards the end, with the frankly pointless Breakout and dull Swinging the Chain.

Definitely not a terrible album: there are some good tracks, but they're not worth wading through the more numerous mediocre tracks on the album. One for the collectors.

Una Laguna | 2/5 |
