Excellent Sabbath, Underrated Work

"This album has everything all the previous great sabbath albums had. I don't get the negative comments. I love Never Say Die, Johnny Blade, Air Dance..it's all here. I mean, if you keep a group in a box and say they are supposed to remain one way or the other, they certainly live up to the first three albums and some of the fanciness on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage. It almost is like Vol. 4 in that sense.
So, look, remain objective about this album. I mean there are some great tracks on this, It's a Hard Road, Over to You...not a big fan of swinging the chain but I find myself skipping ahead on some tracks on their supposed marquis efforts too. It's not possible to like every track on a sabbath record, but I can say Sabotage fits that bill the closest. Give Never Say Die a chance and forget what everyone says is their best. This album is one of their best, the song writing, Ozzy's singing, the production. Great last effort for a dying band, but it don't sound like it's a dying band."
