Wow, I can't understand people not loving this album. It's a masterpiece - one of the best albums ever made. Sometimes I feel some tracks don't measure up - years later they turn out to be my favorites.. I've been listening to this album for 30 years - looking forward to the next 30. Iommi in top form, Dio sings as good as ever.
One of the most overrated metal albums and the sole reason for that is the fact that RJD is singing, without him people wouldn't care much about this album. Only 3 good songs (Neon Knights, Heaven and Hell, Children of the Sea), the rest is completely forgettable. The first 6 albums are all way better.
