Musically, this is a very good live album. I've been a fan of the band since I was a kid and hadn't heard this until I ordered it recently. I was very excited to hear this well reviewed CD. However, Ozzy shouting "We love you!" in every song absolutely kills it for me. Songs about death, war, and drugs lose their atmosphere and impact with shouted words of joy. There are several songs when he yells it not once, but two or three times. If that wouldn't seem to bother you, get this disc. But, if you are like me and feel that atmosphere and delivery true to the intent of the music is important to you, don't buy this album. If not for Ozzy's big heart, I would have given this live album four stars.

Im a huge Black Sabbath fan still to this day. This band is a legend(of course the original members). This group still can give bands today a huge run for thier money! Listening to Black Sabbath still today is still refreshing and still is a better listen than most bands out there....WICKED WORLD HAS A IOMMI SURPRISE FOR YOU IF YOU GET THIS ALBUM. A REALLY SHARP BLUES SOLO...HE'S RIPPING IT UP!! GET THE CD!!

I'm so tempted to give this five stars because of the incredible highlights of the concert, but I just can't quite drop five stars on a recording with the sound quaity of "Live at Last." The word you'll see over and over describing this album is "bootleg," which is essentially correct. The show was recorded with the intent of doing a live album, but various issues led to those plans being scrapped. However, right after Ozzy left a few years later, it was given an unauthorized release in Europe and has been widely available ever since. I can see why the sound is less than perfect, but even in subtracting a star because of it, I still think it's better than what I expected after hearing and reading so much criticism. I can hear Ozzy and the instruments clearly, but the guitar is a little too low, the vocals sound a little distant, and overall it's kind of muddy. In other words, it sounds like a bootleg, but maybe on the better end of bootlegs.

Despite the sound issues, it's a must-have concert to hear. Highlights? How about "Killing Yourself to Live" before it appeared on "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," complete with entirely different lyrics. It's in what sounds like finished form, but the label must have wanted different lyrics. This track is a gem for any Sabbath fanatic. As this tour came after "Vol. 4," the set has rare live performances of "Tomorrow's Dream" and "Cornucopia," which are both fantastic. Most impressive of all, the eighteen-minute-plus "Wicked World" medley/jam is worth the price of the CD by itself.

The best part of this album is the version of "Wicked World." I would say it is worth it for that song alone. It features an extended jam/improv and the legendary Jazz section. Other than that, the fidelity is not so good.

The band is playing well, but it's almost produced like a direct off the board bootleg.
