Get ready to snap your neck once again.
This album is thirty-seven years old, yet still contains more power and beauty in one track than most bands manage in entire lifetimes. The remastering adds the subtlest of polish to the masterpiece, ensuring maximum effect on the tinniest of speakers. Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward at the top of their game. It does not get any better. Even the ‘Lick My Love Pump’ cheesy rhymes of Changes tingle the spine and the stoned pissing-about FX doesn’t detract (well, not much). This is the crest of the Sabbath curve. It was downhill from here but what a height to achieve.
