    First full album with Ozzy Osbourne on vocals since 1978's "Never Say Die"!

    The drawback, original drummer Bill Ward will not appear. Drum duties will be handled by "session musician" Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave.

    Album title: 13.

    Album produced by Rick Rubin.

    Cool. Though I think the situation with Bill is a shame.

    Without hearing any new songs from this record, I would be somewhat skeptical at first.

    I largely dismissed most of Ozzy's solo and Sabbath's output, after the mid 1980's. Their last few records I use to listen to a lot, was The Ultimate Sin and Seventh Star. Not much after these two records.

    Over the years I've picked up many of their subsequent albums whenever I found them in the bargain bins. For the most part, I wasn't really into any of them at all, even after listening to most of them several dozen times.

    Well, for me Black Sabbath peaked with Sabotage (Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules were amazing for different reasons), but I still want to hear it for nostalgia's sake.

    Brad Wilk is a damn good drummer though, and really suited to this challenge.

    I'm very excited about this album. I hope it can be a return to form and not an Ozzy album with Tony & Geezer playing on it.

    I love every Sabbath album from every era of the band...."it's all good"
