This album is not that popular among the fans as I understand. Not even the band likes it.
But the a-side kicks ass. The b-side is very mediocre, except Digital Bitch, which is quite good. It's heavy, Gillian sings like a god and Disturbing the Priest can scare the living shit out of anybody.

Any thoughts?

Hit and miss. Some good songs but Gillan's voice doesn't really fit most of the time. The demos are much better than the album versions, a lot heavier!

I always thought Gillians vox blew. Zero the Hero's a pretty badass song, however. Cannibal Corpse's cover slays!!

I've always loved the shit out of this album. Gillan's vocals are wild and crazy and it's just a killer LP in my opinion. I love that they seemingly just went straight for a stadium metal vibe and went nuts.

One of my all time faves.

I fucking love this album. "Disturbing The Priest" is mind blowing...also the videos for "Trashed" and "Zero The Hero" are a hoot! Thumbs up!

Definitely one of my favorite albums, and my favorite Sabbath album alongside Mob Rules. "Disturbing the Priest" is one of Gillan's best and most insane performances. I doubt any other singer could have pulled the delivery off as well as he did.

I really don't like this album that much. I love Sabbath but this doesn't do it for me; Sure the title track, Disturbing the Priest, Digital Bitch are good but the rest of the album is so-so and what the hell is Keep It Warm ?

This album is a masterpiece from start to finish. "Digital Bitch" is the perfect dedication to the ultimate bitch. Wink

great LP in every way, and the cover art rules.
the video for "trashed" was always great, particularly Mr. Miracle Laughing

Fucking underrated for sure!! It really is "Hit & Miss", but the good songs are actually mindblowing! I don't have any problems whatsoever mentioning "Dsiturbing The Priest" YET again as a prime example, cos it's simply THAT godly!! Other than, that the cover artwork is ICONIC, simple as that!! And yes, the demo versions (which got bootlegged a couple of times in recent years) are even better!

Mandatory in the Sabbath discography. Unique in itself I think
