Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward four names that resonate throughout rock's recorded history as clear and sublime as the haunting bell that tolls the opening to their eponymous debut album from 1970.

Collectively, they formed BLACK SABBATH and forged the most haunting and hypnotic rock sound of all time. From humble beginnings, the Birmingham quartet enslaved the minds and souls of millions of rock fans around the world and continue to do so into the new millennium. The musical genre they created inspired countless musicians and spawned countless bands. Hailed as metal's originators, their musical contributions to the world are still formidable and current forty years later. Their unique sound still echoes in many of today's greatest metal bands. BLACK SABBATH, established now in the forever of Metal's ongoing musical progression, beckon and await you to enjoy their triumphs within.

Black Box suited this purpose just fine thank you very much.

Edit: Child molesting AIDS carbuncle of Allah! Does Sharon have to fucking counteract every goddamn Dio release with something Ozzy related? I'm starting to think Dio raped Sharon or something. Even Ozzy "made peace" with the man after he died, but miss "I need my throat cut in the worst way" just can't seem to let go of a grudge.

:lol: Do it. I don't like getting a ton of music at once because I like to take in albums one or two at a time, but I guarantee you won't regret getting it.

This was announced in the UK several weeks ago. This is the third box to contain all the albums with Ozzy, and something like the sixth overall re-release of the material... and the box doesn't even include the deluxe editions of the first three albums! (Which suck balls, but that's not the point)

All in an unstorable, impractical box that will cost more than the individual albums, and adds nothing to them.

Seriously, anyone who buys this should be lined up and shot.

They're also re-releasing Live At Last and Past Lives as "deluxe" editions with no additional songs and no remaster. That's bad enough, but Past Lives IS a re-release of Live At Last with an extra disc of songs, so WTF?! And it's not going to include the poster and guitar pick which came with the original special edition.

The only worthwhile thing they're doing is releasing deluxe editions of Seventh Star and The Eternal Idol. The Seventh Star has the single edit of 'No Stranger To Love' added, plus a live disc with Ray Gillen on vocals. The Eternal Idol has the two single b-sides added, plus the original recording of the album with Ray Gillen's vocals as a bonus disc. Far better than the bullshit Dio-era deluxe editions and even worse Ozzy-era ones.

All that said, if they re-release Cross Purposes, Cross Purposes Live and Tyr, all will be forgiven.

This is what I am looking forward to.
