Born Again.


As you know, Ian Gillan did an album with Black Sabbath called Born Again. What are your thoughts on that album? How good was it? The only Sabbath I am familiar with is Ozzy and Dio.

Re: Born Again.


Masterpiece of screaming maniacal vocals,
a little different for Sabbath,but a classic Gillan album with some very good music.

Btw MH,this is what Gillan does(did) best,as you will learn when you hear InRock for the first time,I'm sure you realise this from Made In Japan,but you haven't heard anything yet,his 1991 album Toolbox is another fine example of his power.

Re: Born Again.


Born Again is IMHO the darkest Black Sabbath album (the track Black Sabbath is maybe the darkest track overall, but Disturbing the Priest or Born Again are very dark, too). I like it very much though the sound is not too good...

Re: Born Again.


I think I played this album once when it was released, but didn't like it much - must have been the awful [sign in to see URL] the lingering disappointment of Gillan ditching his own band and Dio leaving Sabbath emoticon.

Re: Born Again.


Most people on this forum love Born Again.

I think it's poor - poor production, mix, songwriting, artwork. Only bright point is Gillan's performance.

I'm not impressed with Sabbath's Born Again. It's one of the few I don't have!

Re: Born Again.


Imo, this is one of Sabbath's (and Gillan's)masterpieces. Dark and heavy as hell, perhaps their heaviest ever. The cruddy production values somehow make sense in the context of this album. I think it's Sabbath's last truly great album although I have a soft spot for Headless Cross as well.

Re: Born Again.


A few good songs, bad production, ridiculous cover. A big letdown after the two wonderful Dio/Sabbath albums.
