Album Review

Though it was conceived as a mere cash-in for the long-awaited return of the original Black Sabbath, 1998's Reunion is as close to an official live album as the band has had in their historic 30-year career. 1980's Live at Last was released without their permission, and 1982's Live Evil featured then-singer Ronnie James Dio. With this in mind, the band must be commended on the excellent quality of the recordings, which include their most enduring classics ("War Pigs," "Paranoid," "Iron Man"), as well as a few surprises ("Dirty Women," "Behind the Wall of Sleep"), and were culled from a series of concerts in their native Birmingham in December 1997. The real key to this album, however, is the band's ability to avoid the most common pitfall of live recordings: speeding up the songs. This patience is crucial, since such Sabbath staples as "Sweet Leaf," "Black Sabbath," and "Snowblind" owe much of their unique personality and somber atmospherics to the band's trademark "snail's pace." "Children of the Grave" proves itself once again as one of the band's most dependable live favorites, and the massive riffs of "Into the Void" are simply timeless. The two brand new studio tracks are another treat for longtime fans, and while "Selling My Soul" is rather mundane, "Psycho Man" is absolutely incredible thanks to its slow intro and raging final riff.

Customer Reviews

Black Sabbath Reunion

When i first heard of Black Sabbath i just shrugged my shoulders. But when i heard the songs....WOW!!. To all those Heavy Metal and Rock people out there, if you have not heard Black Sabbath then you must be crazy!!. Everything in this band is great. The Legendary Tony Iommi as lead Guitarist is outstanding and the same can be told for Ronni James Dio and 'Geezer' Butler. But of course we must not forget the 'prince of darkness', the Master. Yes im talking about Ozzy Osbourne who is the outstanding vocals for the band.The songs that best stand out from this album are Paranoid,Iron Man,Children of the grave and N.I.B. As me being a black sabbath fan, i have over 90 songs from many of there albums such as Sabotage,Born again and Dehumanzier. I could never get tired of hearing Black sabbath. The power of them is overwhelming.If you have not heard there songs, then i recommend you download them now. Take a look at there albums. Trust me you are missing out!!

The kings of metal return

One reviewer said this live album was pathetic and its not true metal that is complete rubbish.This is a strong live preformance by metals most legendary band Black Sabbath.THe last we heard from the original Sabbath was 1978s disappointing Never Say Die but this live Album is a true classic.The set list is awesome though it includes a few dissapointing numbers like Dirty Women and misses some classics such as A National Acrobat.The true star of the show is truly Tony Iommi who proves that a few well chosen notes are much better than stricking as many as you can at 400mph.In conclusion this is a great album from the greatest band ever I just wish they'd get together and make another studio album.

Black Sabbath Live - Godly

Bryan the....whatever; i WAS trying to work out whether you were being serious or not for a while there, but i fear you were. :-O Real metal? You call yourself a metalhead and you deride Black Sabbath? A Real metal band? THE original true metal band? The originators of metal? I think you've got your wires crossed somewhere, or you're just another one of those teenagers who doesn't like real metal. This IS real metal. The stuff YOU mentioned is the stuff that isn't real metal; not Black Sabbath. You know nothing about metal....you clearly just don't know what real metal is. What's wrong with you?! Go listen to some Sabbath, Priest, Megadeth, Machine Head, Sepultura, Diamond Head, In Flames and come back when you've discovered what real metal is.

Black Sabbath have been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late-'60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and macabre fantasies. If their predecessors clearly came out of an electrified blues tradition, Black...
