You can't deny it's been a completely different band ever since the second album - FFS, only the drummer remained. As much as I like Ye Are Gods, I was gutted when I saw the new lineup live. With that said, don't worry about it if some of us stick to live footage from 2009-2011. It's not taking away from anyone who digs the band as it is now.
Fuck you, Jex-addicts. Nothing wore off but your boner. That being said, the self-titled one is a bit of a pain to access, and so far with little gain too. I'm thinking they should have stuck with the hymnic approach. Let's hope this is just a temporary excurse on a journey yet to continue
Jex Thoth is great, and she was terrific with Sabbath Assembly, but I think the two post-Jex albums are amazing, especially Quaternity. Thoughtful and beautiful, and Jamie's vocals are easy to get lost in.
Totally agree with ThTool and Fleischart :| the magic that was on incredible 'Restored to One' is lost. New album is just fine, after so amazing debut album I was expecting another masterpiece... Bring Jex back to Sabbath Assembly!!
