I hope this doesn't suck and sound all modern like The Devil You Know did. But this will automatically be better because it doesn't have the painful wailing of Dio over it.

This is pretty cool, but probably more for historical than musical reasons. We'll see.

The Devil You Know sounded modern?

Apart from the production I thought the songwriter was very "classic heavy metal". Any one of those tracks would have fit on an album like Dehumanizer.

I'm cautiously optimistic. I really liked Heaven and Hell and think that Iommi showed he's still got the chops. Also, Bill Ward is definitely my favourite Sabbath drummer (and one of my all time favourites period), so that's a plus over H&H.

However, I think Ozzy won't have the pipes to back up any potential good song-writing. I haven't heard a single vocal recording from him after the 80s that wasn't filtered to shit, and I honestly doubt he can perform properly. Hopefully he's still got the strength to pull off a good performance in studio, but I doubt the tour version will be anything but painful to watch.

Well, according to Tony Iommi, this isn't true. Although the way he says it, he doesn't flat out deny that a reunion is happening. Almost seems inevitable anyway.

I don't think it seems inevitable at all.

On a related Sabbathy note. I was watching the Classic Albums - Paranoid episode which just aired (again). They played a clip of the "demo vocals" for Planet Caravan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQHrbA3b2gk&feature=player_detailpage#t=47s

I know there are recordings of the original War Pigs lyrics, and I already have that. But Ozzy's vocals on this Planet Caravan version are really clicking with me. I'd love to hear the full version, even if the lyrics themselves aren't too amazing. I just love the sound of that almost-faltering Ozzy.

So, anyone know if there's a "full version" released? I did some youtubing but couldn't find anything.

lol I laughed at the track list:

War Pigs

SINGLE

Planet Caravan

Iron Man


as far as the reunion, I'd never say, no matter how bad (or more likely, just useless really) it would probably be, it shouldn't and couldn't "ruin their legacy". Did the train wreck of a show "The Osbornes" make me feel bad and queasy for Ozzy? Yes. Did it ruin any Sabbath records for me? Hell no. I was indifferent when I both heard that it was happening as well as when I heard that it wasn't happening.
