'Born Again' is Black Sabbath's eleventh studio album, released in 1983. The album was recorded during the summer of 1983 at The Manor Studio in Shipton-on-Cherwell, Oxfordshire, England. A major criticism of the album is its production, which Iommi and Gillan have both said is abysmal. Gillan went as far as blaming Butler, who co-produced the album, for the awful sound quality.

  • Underrated.
  • Very ambiguous album. Disturbing the Priest, Zero the Hero and title track are reaaly good. The rest is meh.
  • Gillan's vocals are great as always
  • Great album, wish Iommi reproduces it
  • Musically its a great album. Production is balls but the songs themselves are good.
  • I LOVE this cover! Fucking heavy album
  • Tracks 2-5 are all great, Zero the Hero is amazing, it would make my top 10 favorite Black Sabbath songs. Besides those though the rest of this album is really lacking (although I like Born Again"). Too bad a few more songs like Zero or Priest and this would be my favorite Sabbath record
  • Definetely one of the best "non-Ozzy-era" BS albums, that cover is ankward but somewhat attractive. Raw power and strong Black Sabbath presence in every riff.
  • This album fucking rules. It sounds like an album by a band called "Black Sabbath" should sound: dirty, filthy and mean. Many people are either unable or unwilling to allow themselves to enjoy post-Ozzy Sabbath, which is a shame because they made many great records after he left. Their work remained of a pretty consistently high quality until it become basically Iommi's solo project with different guest musicians every time out. Even some of those records have value. Anyway, this one kills. Crank it up and rock out.
  • The production is worse than the cover. Still a decent album.
