I've been listening to the album awhile and it's depressing how dull it is. The album literally just crawls along 90% of the time, and every song is based on the same template, of slow, plodding, chunky riffs. It's very doomy, but unfortunately it's just dull. I mean, these guys have some chops, but they rarely shine through.

I'd agree with the sentiments that "Bible Black" is the best song the album has to offer.

Really, the album doesn't rise above the three new tracks included in Sabbath's Dio Years greatest hits, which is disappointing. I didn't really like, "When The Devil Cried', but I think it's actually better than most of what's on Devil You Know.

I'm bummed, frankly.

And the lyrics...

"You're on a caravan to Super Man" - yes Dio, yes you are...

Right, this arrived today, so this is my first listen... let's see how it goes.

Anyone else think it's amusing that Ronnie thanked Ritchie Blackmore in the liner notes?

I doubt it, Blackmore is busy working at Midieval Times.

Most of the time with reunions I've learnt not to say "never gonna happen", but in this particular case, never gonna happen.

Black Sabbath is one of my favorite bands, and has been a huge influence on me. I would've never picked up the guitar if it weren't for Iommi. And I definitely have fond memories of listening to stuff like Heaven & Hell for the first time. I don't like the album, but I got it for $10 + bonus DVD, and you can pretty much chalk that up to $10 spent purely for nostalgia/collection completing.

Definitely.

But that's what wishful thinking is for.
