To no one in particular:Tell us WHY they're overrated, not just not liking them (or, you know, just prove you're narrow... and don't know much / haven't heard much)
For me, the definition of overrated: The Beatles. I don't hate them, but every single throwaway lameass song they released - has been hailed as genius!

Tourists get lost in Milton Keynes becasue they can't fucking read the road signs. Tourist: "Can you please tell me where to get to the train station in Milton Keynes"
Milton Keynesian: "Follow the sign that says 'Train Station'"
Tourist: "OH NO!!! WHAT DO I DO I CAN'T READ!!"
Milton Keynesian: "Oh great, another illiterate to be stuck here"

THE HEAVIEST AND LOUDEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME... Nobody can scream like Ian Gillian... probably one of the most underated albums of all time...
If you don't have this album in your heavy metal/hard rock collection, you have to have rocks in your head...
This is the HEAVIEST, and LOUDEST album of all time hands down...
Must be played loud...
I saw the Born again tour when Black Sabbath came to Toronto, and don't believe anything that you heard... The concert was awesome... and they even done the best version I have ever heard of smoke on the water...
Too many people get stuck into one way of thinking...
Oh, if it wasn't with OZZY it isn't Sabbath, etc...
Give your head a shake...
Don't get me wrong, the original Black Sabbath line up can never be duplicated, of course...
But, so many closed minded people exist out there...
If something is good, or great, it is great, and should stand on it's own merit...
If you are a fan of heavy metal, and you give Born Again half a chance... and that means actually listening to the entire album a few times...
You will see, and understand what I mean...
I like Metallica, and Megadeath, and lots of heavy albums, and heavy metal...
Don't get me wrong...
BUT, just download DISTURBING THE PRIEST, and listen to the screaming, and heavy riffs, etc... gotta be the loudest, and heaviest song I've ever heard...
everyone talks aout TRASHED... what about HOT LINE, and KEEP IT WARM...????
sounds like alot of people never really heard this entire album, yet comment on it anyway...
When it came out and I heard the album for the first time, I couldn't believe how loud, and heavy it was...
I always hoped Gillian, and Iommi would get back together and record more songs...
By the way, I shook Iommi's hand before he jumped in the Limo, and got his autograph on my ticket after the concert at Maple leaf gardens, in Toronto...
So, I have met Ozzy, and Iommi, and shook both their hands...
When Ozzy went on his first tour, for Blizzard of OZ, he came to A.A records, and signed autographs in Toronto...
Me and my buddy Gordon Lucas of Hamilton were there...
And it was a great moment... long line up though...
around the block, we were lucky to get in, as they had to shut the doors, not everyone got to meet Ozzy... but we did... and he signed my Blizzard of Ozz album...
GETTING BACK TO BORN AGAIN...
Ever hear DIGITAL BITCH... another heavy, loud song that will blow your speakers out...
If you like loud, heavy music, and you're open minded about Ozzy not being on vocals on this album, and you are willing to listen to the album as loud as you possibly can... THEN YOU'RE READY FOR BORN AGAIN...
If you are a fan of heavy metal/hard rock, and you don't lik ethis album... YOU HAVE SOME BAD PROBLEMS HAPPENING IN YOUR HEAD...
It just amazes me how a fan of heavy, heavy music cannot like this album...
Download DIGITAL BITCH right now, and listen to that song a few times, and you'll get an idea of how heavy this album is...
One of the greatest recordings of all time...
As far as Stonhenge, and the dark...
Iommi, and Black sabbath have done this numerous times... Just about every Black Sabbath album has a musical, or some strange noises, etc...
It's all aprt of the BORN AGAIN experience...
I believe people fear really giving the album a chance with the devil baby on the front cover...
They are probably too afraid to listen and appreciate it, and the reviews I read against Born Again here... You can just tell that the people writing the reviews haven't even given the album a chance...
Probably heard part of a song, and judged it from there...
AGAIN, IT AMAZES ME HOW ANY TRUE BLACK SABBATH FAN COULD NOT LIKE BORN AGAIN, AND ANY TRUE HEAVY METAL/HARD ROCK FAN COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS C.D IN THEIR COLLECTION...

thought of this guy today for some reason
― Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 19:43 (one year ago) link
I was thinking about this today. I always sign off my emails with a 'thanks' or 'cheers' or 'kind regards' and then my name, even when I'm replying, most of the time. this strikes me as really pointless and old fashioned. like, why bother when clearly my name is in the sender field anyway. and writing 'cheers, Ch4rlie' at the bottom of every email it's not a flipping letter.
that said, I always feel like I'm coming off a bit curt if I don't

Interesting fact I never knew until today is that Patrick Mimran was the CEO and owner of Lamborghini.
In fact I never really had any idea who he was other than the artist who put up those billboards in Chelsea. I never thought they were that interesting so I never found out more about him.
― Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 21:15 (one year ago) link
Totally clueless about the Lamborghini connection, always thought it was a moneyed but desperate artist trying to break in.. kind of like that sour patch four sad generations removed from Warhol artist who couldn't get into a gallery but kept screwing wooden wheatpaste signs of his one NYT press hit into traffic signs. I guess I respected it, he did it pre-blogs and pre-social media. But I still bombed the shit out of those wooden thingys with Ocularis avant-garde screening schedules. At one point he even cried uncle, made the appropriate calls threatening that I should be fired.. One of my prouder moments as a volunteer was being bought a pint for a job well done on his contraptions.

I have this high school friend who I'm facebook friends with now who does this shit where he posts some original bit of trench commentary or life wisdom to his instagram, image captures it, then posts it to facebook and adds even more trench commentary or life wisdom commentary above the image, like commentary on his commentary. It's so fucking corny.
