He explains: . We did the Born Again album but I fell apart with the idea of touring. I got so much fear behind touring, I didn't talk about the fear, I drank behind the fear instead and Born Again - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules / Born Again (CD) was a big mistake. So, I blew the Born Again tour and Bev Bevan, who is a very, very, very nice man, a very good drummer, took over the drum chair on that one.
Pretty Maids were the support act on the initial Scandinavian dates 18—24 August Diamond Head provided support on the remaining European dates 13 September to 3 October together with Lita Ford Septemberbut was also supplanted by Girlschool during the Spanish gigs 13—15 September and Belgian speed metallers Acid in Brussels 1 October.
Streetheart were originally scheduled to be the support act at the beginning of the Canadian leg, but those initial shows were canceled. Instead, Scottish rockers Nazareth filled in on the majority of the Canadian shows from 20 October through 24th until Quiet Riot were available for the show in Toronto 25 October.
However, Nazareth paired with Quiet Riot in London, Ontario 26 October and replaced Black Sabbath as the headliner when their Stonehenge set wouldn't fit into the arena! Fastway also made an appearance in New Haven on 8 November. Heaven provided support at the beginning of the 2nd North American leg from 25 January through at least the end of January. Ratt appeared only at the first show in Daly City on 25 January. Girlschool reappeared for a single show in San Antonio on 4 February.

Most of the songs on the album are also weak and not really of the usual high standard from the band. The production is awful to my ears. After the powerful and rich Martin Birch productions on the two previous albums, Born Again sounds lifeless and flat in comparison the sound on the guitar solos is an abomination IMO.
Born Again is not a very succesful album IMO. First of all the choice of Ian Gillan as the new singer in Black Sabbath turned out to be a big mistake. Secondly most of the songs sound uninspired and trivial. Thirdly the sound quality is way below average. A 2 star rating is all I can give. Their worst effort by far up until then. Now the album. I had listen for almost all BS albums during years and years.
It's very different music there when playing with different vocalists: doomy heavy bluesy Ozzy's period is absolutely different from melodic Dragons heavy metal of Dio's.
But both they are absolutely the best. After the band started endless change from one unsuccessfull experiment to another. The experiment with Gillan was the weak point, only plus - it wasn't very boring. Gillan is singing in his usual manner of that period more Ian Gillan band then Deep Purple stylewhat means that he likes to scream instead of singing in any possibility.
His voice is still strong enough, but it just doesn't go good with BS music. In fact, the album looks as unhappy mix of BS playing and Gillan vocal line is put on from just another recording in another studio. There are few positive moments in all album, but common feeling is raw and unacceptable.
To complete my Sabbath series here I picked it up after all. Free of any preconceptions or expectations about the whole adventure I wasn't all that disappointed, meaning this isn't the worst Sabbath album. One remark though, the sound is really really bad. The overblown and over-reverbed 80's production has squashed all possible power out of this album. It's one big muddy plastic murk, devoid of dynamics and edge.
But onto the music now. Trashed is an OK opener. Give this a remix and it would be good. The second track however gave me a bit of a startle. Much to my surprise I knew this Disturbing the Priest song, again from a cover, this time by Psychotic Waltz I though it was just an old demo song of their own making, I had no clue it was a Sabbath cover.
It's a very strong track, very progressive for Sabbath. It's so haunted, dark and dissonant. Had Iommi been listening to Bauhaus when writing this? Zero the Hero is almost industrial metal. Gillan's vocals aren't entirely appropriate here though. His bluesy vocals don't sit well with the ominous main theme. Dark, spooky, heavy, and very original again. I didn't know Sabbath had an influence on the industrial scene well maybe yes I did, as also Ministry did a Sabbath cover.
The rest of the album is second-rate material of the kind that also disgraced Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die, Born Again - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules / Born Again (CD).
But the just those two excellent highlights are motivation enough for two stars. Originally I was discouraged by all Born Again - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules / Born Again (CD) negative professional reviews to even give this album a spin, but after talking to a few hardcore Black Sabbath fans they really makes this album seem like an underrated piece of art.
Just after completing my military service, I got a hefty chunk of cash as a bonus so it felt only right to invest some of that money into a few risky releases that I would otherwise have never even considered purchasing. So I lay my money down and Born Again was in my possession. Things kick-off well with Trashed where Ian Gillian clearly makes his presence known, but it's a downhill slide from here on.
There is no reason to even talk about the rest of these terrible composition and instead I'll let their titles do the talking. Keep It Warm?!? The thing that really ruins this whole experience is the terrible production that, I suppose, is meant to sound intimidating and rough but ends up like a blurry mess where I can't hear anything than Iommis guitar. There is also a definite '80s vibe in the sound scheme that just makes this whole material sound really dated and don't even get me started on the album cover!
Even if you're a fan of Black Sabbath, which I consider myself to be, then do yourself a favor and stay away from this terrible album!
I'm sure that there might be some sort of a nostalgia factor for some of the band's fans who heard this record when it was first released, but otherwise this is strictly a completionists only release! By all means, a collaboration between Black Sabbath and Ian Gillan should have ruled. Sabbath had spurred the heavy metal sound, and Gillan had dished out some of hard rock's most enduring records with Deep Purple.
Not only that, but Sabbath now had a precedent to become awesome with a new vocalist. Dio's induction led to "Heaven And Hell", the album that saved the band from crippling mediocrity. The songwriting standards are back to the way they were with "Technical Ecstasy", and for whatever reason, Gillan's vocals to not fit nearly as well as they should have. Although not as articulate as Dio, Ian Gillan had an amazing voice throughout the 70's. Particularly in his shrieking falsettos, there is no doubt that he was one of his era's vocal greats when it came to hard rock.
Listening to his performance on "Child In Time" from Deep Purple's "In Rock" album makes it clear that his haunting voice would have worked well with Sabbath's relatively dark sound. Although many argue Born Again - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules / Born Again (CD) his bluesy style does not fit with the heavier sound that Black Sabbath goes for, it could have been incredible.
Sadly this potential is far from realized; the whole thing sounds underbudgeted and generally uninspired. Gillan's falsettos sound great for the most part, but the songwriting falls flat for the most part. Barring the moments where he sets his voice on fire, Gillan's performance feels like he doesn't care about the music, and who can blame him? The composition falls flat more often than not; there isn't a melody of riff that sticks after the album's over.
The biggest Born Again - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules / Born Again (CD) here is undoubtedly the production and mixing. Apparently, the rough cuts were accidentally published rather than the refined mix, and if that is true, it's a pretty juvenile slip-up for a veteran band to make. The album sounds like a rough demo, or a work-in-progress. As a result, the more upbeat 'rock' tracks are completely unenjoyable to listen to, with only Gillan's shrieks clambering above the mess.
However, something very unexpected happens as a by-product of this. Also thanks in part to Gillan's eerie falsettos, this is the darkest Sabbath have sounded since the debut. The slower tunes and ambient interludes are actually pretty good, and the lo-fi sludge gives it a diabolical atmosphere that I might compare to some black metal. Further proof that not everything is black or white, especially when it comes to music.
Taking into account the fact that most of the album still defaults on conventional hard rock songwriting, it becomes nearly unlistenable when paired with a production that sounds like it was engineered by a studio intern. It might be worth checking out for Ian Gillan friends, but this is a chapter in Black Sabbath's history that is best left forgotten. It's really not that bad as some people say, in my opinion. There are highlights. In general "Born again" is a doom-laden, led-heavy, chaptig, frightening album and quite unique in the Sabbath canon.

This line up should have lasted longer. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful. The best thing about the record is the front cover image. Never Say Die is an absolute masterpiece in comparison.
No indication on cover or label that is made in NZ. Contains some of their best work, bringing the lyrics back to earth after RJD's too fantasy for Black Sabbath work. Don't get me wrong, RJD era had some great songs, but he was always up in the rafters with his lyrics, no matter who he was working with. Look - that produced the classic era Rainbow stuff, but Sabbath were too heavy for that. I digress Sabbath and IG crossed paths at the right time.
A real shame that Deep Purple came back to life another horror story there, but at least DC made himself a band that really did suit him, after the near terminal damage I sold my official LP and bought this one,cause this sounds amazing!!! Only bad thing is that this is unofficial release, but at least it is cheap one!!! Reply Notify me 2 Helpful. MrSmith June 3, Report. Gillian's overwrought vocals plus Spinal Tap lyrics make this dogs diner on an album.
Includes bonus CD of disastrous Reading Festival gig. Avoid like the plague. Songs like Stonehenge,Disturbing The Priest,and Zero The Hero are the best songs from this album,all the other ones are somewhat good,not bad,nor great,but overrall,mixed with Gillan's great vocals,Purple Sabbath ain't so bad at all,just give it a listen and believe me what i tell you,this is a very underrated album and it isn't as bad as other people say!
