    "Born Again" is one of my favourite non-Ozzy albums. Very underrated!


    I'm with you on that one! Nothing beats that opening track. I will never forget hearing it for the first time as a kid, late one night. It gave me chills. I was mesmerized, a little bit spooked and totally loving it.

    A close second for me is "Vol. 4". I pretty much love all Sabbath albums, but I am first and foremost a fan of the Ozzy stuff.

    Forbidden is one that should never have been allowed to exist.

    :oyea: It's not THAT bad!

    That being said, most of the Tony Martin albums rank among my least favourite Black Sabbath albums. That’s not to say they are not good albums and Tony is certainly a good singer, I'm just not as into them as most of the other albums.

    That first album - the Sabbath guys didn't know anything about the sound effects on it. They were away touring in Germany after laying down the tracks. While they were away the producer, Rodger Bain, added all that stuff.

    @Magic in any of the book written about the band or solos never stated they didn't approve...

    Thank you @joker1961. I confess........I have never read any books on Black Sabbath. I should probably do some reading.:)

    You have to remember that these were four working class guys from Birmingham who had just had the opportunity of a lifetime - to actually record an album. They were happy to go along with anything the producer said.
