Biography

Black Sabbath is credited with creating heavy metal. The success of their first two albums - Black Sabbath and Paranoid - marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. Not until Black Sabbath upended the music scene did the term “heavy metal” enter the popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided.

Great riffs, lyrics, & solos.

Black Sabbath had just released two excellent albums with new lead singer Ronnie James Dio(who replaced the great Ozzy).
Anthony William Price
I really like this song (even with the inane lyrics).

This is what I consider to be Sabbath's last album. After this, there were so many lineup changes, the band basically deteriorated into a Tony Iommi solo project.
Don't believe all of the derogitory comments you hear about this album; it is a classic. It is a horrible shame that Ian Gillan didn't stick it out with Sabbath longer than this. His vocals fit in perfectly with Sabbath's style on this album, which is heavier than anything from any point in their history. Gillan's vocals on the sinister "Disturbing the Priest" is so menacing it would send the guys from Slayer running out of the room.
"Trashed" is another classic track. It is about a wreck Gillan had during the recording while driving under the influence. It may be politically incorrect, but it kicks harder than anything Sabbath has released since the early Ozzy days. "Zero The Hero" has a great riff which Guns n' Roses later used for "Paradise City," and "Hotline" is a great song that I wind up singing to myself days after I last listened to the album.
If you expect this album to sound like a cross between Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, don't worry about it. This album is all Sabbath, and Gillan turns in an awesom performance. If you like Sabbath at any stage of their career, whether it be with Ozzy, Dio, or Martin, get this album. It will not disappoint.

This is one of the most enjoyable albums from Black Sabbath, Ozzy even says so! Just like another legendary U.K. band Deep Purple, they made a great album without Gillan and Blackmore called "Come Taste The Band," well Sabbath did the same, without Dio or Ozzy. But of all people, Deep Purple's Ian Gillan!!! The voice of Jesus Christ Superstar. A strange pairing, but it really does work. Born Again is much closer in spirit to the early 70's albums with Ozzy, and Gillan comes off sounding like a mad man, and a drugged up party animal leading Sabbath's original trio down a path of true hard rock high jinx. I find that I reach for this Sabbath album more than any other, not because I'm a Gillan fan, but because of it's inspired vibe, which gives the very best Sabbath albums a run for the money.

The only thing holding back the album from 5 stars is the muddy sound quality. Gillan blames bassist Geezer Butler for this. Story has it, Gillan heard the rough mixes (and still has them) and they sounded great, then Gezzer mixed the album with way too much bass. The remastering is actually pretty good, cleaning up some of the problem. Hopefully one day it will be re-mixed, or Mr. Gillan will release the earlier mixes.

Highlights: Trashed, Disturbing The Priest, Digital Bitch, Born Again & Keep It Warm

With "Heaven and Hell" (1980) and its follow-up "Mob Rules," (1981) the mighty Black Sabbath accomplished the impossible by proving that there was life after Ozzy. After going into commercial and critical decline in the late 70s, vocalist Ronnie James Dio brought the band back to its former glory, revitalizing the band and adding a new chapter to the legendary band's career. But alas, the newly energized second incarnation was not meant to last. In '82 Dio and Sabbath drummer Vinnie Appice (who played on "Mob Rules") left the band after a dispute on the mixing and mastering of "Live Evil" (1982). After the split Ronnie James Dio and Appice formed the highly successful Dio, while founding Sabbath members' Tony Iommi (guitar) and Geezer Bulter(bass) were left with the task of rebuilding Sabbath once again.

To fill the shoes of Ozzy and Dio, vocalist Ian Gillian made perfect sense and seemed like an ideal match. With such albums as "Fireball" (1970) and "Machine Head" (1972) under his belt, the (then) former Deep Purple frontman certainly had the background and credentials to front Sabbath. Although Sabbath and Deep Purple were rivals in their coinciding heyday, their similarities outnumbered their differences as they were both responsible for some of the decade's best rock. With Gillian at the helm and original drummer Bill Ward back behind the kit, Sabbath released their eleventh studio album, the aptly titled "Born Again" in the summer of '83.

The third incarnation of Sabbath is not a radical departure from the sound of the Ozzy or Dio years. With Tony Iommi's heavy, gloomy riffs and bluesy solos over Ward and Butler's solid rhythm section, "Born Again" certainly sounds like a Black Sabbath album. Gillian, however, definitely adds his signature to the band.

So said Ian Gillan upon perusing this album cover, a bad cross between "The Exorcist", "Rosemary's Baby", and "It's Alive".

Well, Ian, I did too. I've heard that Tony Iommi allowed it because he found it hilarious.

Note: I haven't heard the remastered version. My review of this is based on my original German-made CD.

When Ronnie James Dio left the band, I was crushed. However, somehow, I predicted that they would get Ian Gillan. To my surprise, I was right!!!

This is not their best album. However, it is not worth the abuse ("Black Purple") that has been heaped on it over the years (mostly by people who won't accept anything past "Never Say Die" anyway).

I got this album during my senior year in high school (83-84). I had high expectations, since Sabbath are my favourite HM band and I have very high regard for Ian Gillan. Nobody shrieks like him! Plus, Bill Ward was back (albeit temporarily).

When I played it, I was struck by two things. First of all, I was surprised at how HEAVY it is - far heavier than the two previous studio albums. Riffmaster Tony Iommi certainly doesn't disappoint! I also noticed that, indeed, some of the songs (especially "Hot Line") could easily have come off a Deep Purple album or one of Gillan's solo albums (he was huge as a solo artist in Europe and Japan). Indeed, there was some controversy as he had broken Gillan up due to nodes on his vocal chords and then he shows up in Black Sabbath!

This is perhaps Sabbath's most controversial album after "Seventh Star" (which isn't a Sabbath album, really). Apparently Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler didn't want to call it a Sabbath album.
