Amazing tune and always been one of my favorites. Zeitgeist blew me away as well on first listen.
You crayzee kids you!!!
A trip indeed!
I agree. I didn't like it much in 1983, apart from "Trashed" (at the time I was a huge fan of Gillan's band so I had been looking forward to Born Again and was appalled when it came out). But I've listened to it a fair bit over the past few years, including yesterday, and have come to appreciate it. In fact the terrible sound is part of its charm, the murky audio combined with Gillan's inappropriate vocal style and Iommi's deranged playing makes for a truly chaotic experience that sounds more like early Sabbath then anything else the "band" ever did.
And after getting 'into' jazz, and hearing the backstory about Tony's accident and coworker inspiration of Django Reinhart's story - that took my appreciation of PC to a different level. Tony's guitar work is sublime.
Funny, now H&H I find dated. With Dio, I thought Mob Rules the stronger effort.
I sorta' see that....on H&H, take away the title track....and....?
Ain't it strange how one can take an excerpt from a post and make it all different.......there was a magazine that made a lot of money doing that IIRC...
Digital Bitch sounds nothing like early Sabbath. More like a heavy IGB. There are some notable songs on that album, but as a work doesn't stand up to Ozzy Sabbath. And that cover art, what a stinker!
It more than than stands up....especially to the later Ozzy-Sabbath albums, which I have trouble finishing or playing in their entirety.
Well...switch out 4 for the s/t ...and then you'd be spot on.
TE and NSD are fantastic and way better than 13.
Bill Ward on drums, for one...
The first 3 do it for me.
I'm in for anything with the original 4 or that has Dio singing.
Not sure that I have even heard any of the later BS albums. I'm a metal "light weight"...
If not Ward, why not Vinny Appice?
Why does Rick Robin get to pick the drummer?? Arrrrgh!
(Bangs head against the wall)
They're a logical progression.
I don't listen to much metal anymore but I'll always love Sabbath. Sabbath is bluesy and it swings. Plus Iommi + Butler = bliss,
Its not a total dud - but God Is Dead - maybe just a minute or two too long for me. End Of The Beginning is incredible - even with those issues I have over the tones used (guitar and drums). Loner and Zeitgeist are too much of a rehash but are okay ( you know where the original ideas come from) Live Forever could feature on a Budgie album (I love Budgie but they were a League below Sabbath). Dear Father should be on the bonus disc - one of the bonus disc songs should have been promoted to the main album.
Maybe CD listening is not helping my experience - if the vinyl is a better listen - but just something isn't working for me. But hey - Never Say Die jumped into new life a few years ago for me, so maybe 13 will do the same someday too
Paranoid and the early compilation We Sold Our Soul for a good coverage of other early tracks. The later compilation 'Greatest Hits'? is good too.
And still awesome.
Well the S/T is great too but California, too much cocaine and very low tuning seemed to create magic for my ears . The slow sludge of Vol. 4 makes it my favourite. Some of the slowest, heaviest riffs ever recorded are on that album.
The Wizard, After Forever and Into The Void is Sabbath for me.
War Pigs, Into the Void, Killing Yourself to Live, and Thrill of it All...maybe throw in Snowblind and I'd be Sab happy!
