I could "see" all the gears in the bus home from school's transmission with my ears when I would close my eyes. Sometimes just hearing Iron Man or War pigs on the radio can take me right back but that AWFUL "Changes" song will ALWAYS do it.
Sabbath has a new album coming out June 11th called "13". No Bill Ward (not necessarily a bad thing) but Ozz, Tony and Geezer are together. Some folks (record company types I presume) were invited to a listening party for it last week and all of them absolutely RAVED about it after hearing it. A couple of quotes from those that heard it:
"So, you’ll be very happy. I think you will find it to be an enjoyable reprise of the original Sabbath sound you liked. You’ll hear what Iommi’s old riffs sound like played with modern production. I think everybody will probably find something to like about it."
"…it is a VERY good record, certainly belonging of a place in the Ozzy-era discography. It is not mind-expandingly original, nor would I want it to be. They didn't reinvent the wheel here, they are the wheel
"".........after 35 years the architects of heavy metal weren't in this for the payload victory-lap. They came to kill it. They succeeded."
