Join the group now. The same was true of half-hearted performances like Shock Wave and Over to You , and there were several songs on the record that sound strangely disjointed, specifically Junior's Eyes and the synthesiser-doused Johnny Blade. For a band that not only was well known for playing heavy metal, but creating it, it must have surely been a shock to some listeners. On this record, Black Sabbath officially stopped being Black Sabbath.
Such talent wasted. It is a shame. Andy Hubble: I think this album is a lot better and quite a bit more important than many people believe. When The Wizard is compared to Air Dance , the contempt for this album is deserved. Some of those contributions do not belong on a Black Sabbath album, yet there they are. The tracks: Never Say Die has a great hook. Had it not been released in it might have been a hit.
Johnny Blade strikes me as the opening theme song to an action flick. Imagine a frenetic animation piece with the opening credits in a summer blockbuster and it totally works. What will happen to you, Johnny Blade? The jazz feel is pretty groovy. A Hard Road has some great bass guitar in it, and Iommi sings!
Catchy chorus. Shock Wave starts out ok, but ends a lot stronger with an awesome, heavy riff. That chorus needs to go away. Air Dance is such a strange tune. Cool heavy intro, but then here comes Don Airey! Enjoy some vaguely depressing lyrics about lost dreams and some flowery piano leading into the tasteful guitar stylings of Tony Iommi.
Then a few seconds of heavy. And now some jazz with some space-out synth! I have tons of respect for their courage in releasing it.
Totally shakes things up. Over To You is one of my faves. It ends with another damn fadeout. The story of Breakout : A roving band of brass and wind players was wandering by the studio.
Ozzy, Iommi, Geezer, and Ward were passed out from the drugs and alcohol. It has its own heaviness and is so unexpected. Again I respect the courage of the band to release this. That song is pretty unremarkable. The harmonica is ok. Pretty good opening riff. This album is super important, not because of what it is but because of what followed it.
