No surprise. They've done it before and all has been well. For most fans as long as Ozzy and Tony are there, it's all good.

Meh.

Am glad I didn't care much about this when it was first announced. Now I really couldn't give a ****.

Heard the new song yesterday for the first time and liked it. I wasn't blown away but thought it was pretty solid effort for a bunch of old geezers!

First time I saw them was in 1978. I've seen them half a dozen times since, including when Dio was with them.

Good times, man, good times.

I've only seen 'em with Ozzy, but primarily that was all I listened to anyway. Been to every tour since '99, even twice per year on the Ozzfests they did.

I'm a huuuuuuge Ozzy fan (duh?) and for some reason he'd always eluded me on tour. Whether it was too far and I was too young to drive myself at the time, or a canceled show, it just never happened. Finally Ozzfest '99 rolled around and I now had my license; and the reunion on the Ozzfest tour was the first time I got to see not only him, but them. It seemed fitting for me that it happened that way, and it was of course amazing.

I've listened to the new track 10 times already. Gets better with each listen.

Album pre-ordered.

Dio > Ozzy, but I have a feeling this will be a better effort than The Devil You Know.

Grew up listening to Black Sabbath. Lived the musician lifestyle in the early-mid 90's. No matter who I played with or what covers we did, we were always major Black Sabbath fans. Everything dark and evil and oppressive in metal comes directly from Sabbath. Never thought I'd ever get to see the original lineup together, but they reunited for the Ozzfest tour in 99. Fear Factory, Deftones, System of a Down, Godsmack, Rob Zombie and others, and of course the headliners were Sabbath themselves. Having played Sweet Leaf, Into the Void, Children of the Grave, Supernaut and countless others in countless bands, it was an almost spiritual experience to hear Tony, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill play them properly live. Master of Reality is still the perfect album.

Their date in Vancouver has been confirmed for August 22. Gonna call in sick, put roofies in my boss's coffee, do whatever I have to do, but I'm there.

It took me a couple weeks to actually get and listen to the new album because I was so nervous to hear it, but I love it. Been listening to it heavily ever since then.

While there are no amazing songs such as the major hits from the first few albums, IMO from start to finish it is more solid and consistent.

Can't wait to see 'em next month, though I've seen the original lineup at about 10 reunion shows (and solo Ozzy at least twice that). Sucks that Bill Ward won't be on the tour but what can you do. I'm surprised he was able to do all that he has since the 2000s started; his health had been bringing him down prior to and during most tours for over a decade. I'd rather have someone else on the kit than have Bill drum himself to actual death trying to keep on.

Favorite songs? I really like the bluesy vibes of The Age of Reason and and Damaged Soul.

The new album is painful to sit through. Completely generic and boring. That being said, Black Sabbath exists within its initial album trilogy. Comparable if not superior to anything Zeppelin has done.

Saw Sabbath last night, great show. They played over 2 hours and Ozzy sounded better than at any point in the past 15 years that I've seen (aside from 2010 which was comparable).

Havent seen the new tour but Ozzy sounds terrible on youtube clips from recent shows.

Dont like the way he ruins Iommi's solos and stuff by constantly squawking at the crowd to put their hands together.

****ing irritating.
