What's your opinion on Eternal Idol and Headless Cross?

Duke, Friday, 9 October 2009 21:11 (4 years ago) Permalink

I voted for "Call Me"... I mean "Children of the Grave."

Sorry again for the 'only those with injuries in their brains' thing, I didn't chose my words wisely. It didn't sound that harsh of an opinion in my head but the more I read it the more I realize how it could've come off as extremely offensive.

Already repeated throughout thread a couple of times but the only assumption I wanted to make was that their first 6 albums are better by general consensus and that few people would choose NSD and Technical Ecstasy over the rest. I wasn't aware you were one of those few fans and I apologize, once again, for my offense to your kind upthread.

― Duke, Friday, October 9, 2009 2:11 PM (1 hour ago)

I think there are good riffs on those discs, but no entire songs that rule. It's too bad.

Well, by metal I meant hard rock... I think.

"Changes" is hardly hard rock. :)

Really, I like a lot of Black Sabbath, also some of the darker stuff. But "Changes" is such a beautiful song it still stands in a league of its own here. Not because it's "atypical", but because it's great.

Voted st because it's so sludgy and dark and it has that church bell and the first time I ever heard Ozzy yell "Oh god please help me!" I was instantly ROTFL in joy.

Supernaut but my deliberations were similar to Jordan's.

Thanks. I was tempted to pick these up a while back. Allmusic has it that they are fine albums. I couldn't bring myself to do it.

" and I apologize, once again, for my offense to your kind upthread."

Accepted, I understand what you were getting at. And yes, it is correct, those last two Ozzy albums are generally considered, rightly or wrongly, the red headed step-children of his time with the band.

Bill Magill, Monday, 12 October 2009 13:14 (4 years ago) Permalink

didn't j0hnD say he liked Never Say Day best of all Sab albums somewhere 'round these here parts? i'd like to see him argue that point further, tbh.

wot?? (Ioannis), Monday, 12 October 2009 13:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

I dont know if he said it was his favorite but he did a pretty funny flowchart diagram where he made it clear that it was at least in the discussion.

Bill Magill, Monday, 12 October 2009 14:40 (4 years ago) Permalink

right, that was it.

Check out the new Sabbath compilation. No "Supernaut," and not a single track from Sabotage. Sacrilege!

I am confused as to exactly what the Sabbath camp is doing here.

One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Thursday, 10 May 2012 16:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was a little more harsh on this thread than I believe was necessary, in retrospect.

One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Thursday, 10 May 2012 16:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

haw, really, nothing from Sabotage? I'm pretty new to deep Sabbath fandom, but I think that is my fave album by them.

tylerw, Thursday, 10 May 2012 16:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

speaking of 'em, saw that the "classic albums" doc for paranoid is streaming on netflix now. will watch soon!

tylerw, Thursday, 10 May 2012 16:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

Just saw that recently, it's great. You get to hear the untreated vocals on "Planet Caravan"

Johnny Hotcox, Thursday, 10 May 2012 17:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

I just got a boot that has "Planet Caravan" without the Leslie effect. It's kinda neat to hear.

I didn't even know this existed! I'm not on Netflix but I'll probably just buy the dvd.

That new comp looks, erm, superfluous...

Gavin, Leeds, Friday, 11 May 2012 08:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

The Paranoid Classic Albums thing is excellent. Seriously thorough. The Planet Caravan part is awesome.

One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Friday, 11 May 2012 13:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

I havent seen a bad one in that series, by the way.

One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Friday, 11 May 2012 13:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

How did Lord of This World only get one vote?
Also: I'm chained to Spotify at work and they don't have anything by BSabbath with Ozzy. Thumbs down.

brosef, Friday, 11 May 2012 14:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ozzy era stuff is apparently pretty locked down so Sharon and Co. can continue selling you CD's of songs you already have in about 10 formats.

One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Friday, 11 May 2012 15:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

We in the UK have the full Ozzy years catalogue, with the exception of Vol 4, for some reason.

good luck in your pyramid (Neil S), Friday, 11 May 2012 15:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

Vol. 4 had a strange producer credit, i dont remember the exact story, but i think their manager was listed as producer (even though he did nothing). There was later significant litigation between him and the band. That may have something to do with it-i could be wildly off though, I'm just guessing.

One Way Ticket on the 1277 Express (Bill Magill), Friday, 11 May 2012 15:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

it used to be there, but has been pulled. The others are there in the recent re-issue formats.

I bought a Vol 4 t-shirt the other day, which I was happy to get since I understand there are merchandising rights issues as well.

It must be a lot of laughs having to deal with all this.
