Additional info
Re-released in Europe on November 1, 2010, in a special edition 2 disc set.

Disc II:
Recorded at Hammersmith Odeon in London, on 2 June 1986, featuring Ray Gillen performing vocals.

This was originally supposed to be a Tony Iommi solo album. Record company pressure forced Iommi to call it a Black Sabbath album, hence the official name of the band on this album being "Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi". The "featuring" part was dropped when they went on tour,

  This album was not meant to be a BS album, just a Tommi Iommi album, but the label forced Iommi to have it under Black Sabbath banner. "BS featuring Tommi Iommi" says on the cover - it's ridiculous

Taking the album for what it offers and considering the things above, it's a really good album, Glenn Hughes performance was great. Seventh Seal is in my humble opinion miles better than the previous album (Born Again that featured Ian Gillan on vocals).

Rating: 5 What you said is true, but that doesn't mean it's a good album either way. Quite mediocre. Everything after Mob Rules with the exception of Headless Cross, Cross Purposes and Dehumanizer has for the most part, sucked. A couple of alright songs here and there, but besides that, no.

that just goes to show how much tastes differ. I think maybe if it didn't say Black sabbath on the cover, people would not have been so confused and would have received it differently and more positively.

Rating: 9 This album is very underrated here I must say

Rating: 8 Fuck, why is this rated so low? Pure hard rock/AOR goodness, and with an awesome vocalist.

Well, actually as an album is not all bad but the name Black Sabbath is on it so that why the disappointment of not typical BS.



the record company put the name Black Sabbath on it without Tony's approval. Tony wanted it released just under his own name since it had and has nothing to do with Black Sabbath

  The lamest thing is that it says "Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi"

Rating: 7 Good album, some very good moments such as "Seventh Star", "No Stranger To Love", "Danger Zone" or "Turn To Stone". Very low rating, another Sabbath album way underrated just like Born Again

  It is awesome, well it was like Tony Iommi feat BS , or his solo album so , actualy this was good, much better then Dio and specely Gillan(even I have nothing against both singers) but T martin's voice bring this album, smething it was maybe perfect for late 80's half long hair ''love story 80's fashion'' time, My fav song is ''No Strange To Love'' maybe because all knows Dio voice, Gillan, all was played at radio, TV, and so on but his vocals was more underground, c mon if he wont eb at BS he woulkd be like Blaze Bayley in Wolfsbane and Tom Owens in Winters Bane, nobody would know those singers, IMO BS name make T Martin famose, but still it dont change a fact this album is good, maybe keyboards made it some kind a awesome, BS need to risk at that time, they did , changed sound and it worked
