Ronnie James is the man. And backed by Iommi, Butler and Apice, it can only spawn greatness. Live from Radio City Music Hall is one of the best live albums to come out in years.

^Oh, and Stormbringer? Epic Deep Purple awesomeness! :)

godlike: I like Dio-era Sabbath, but I'll always be a bigger fan of Ozzy's work with Sabbath. That's the sh** I grew up on, lol. By the way, how you likin' the cold? Lol. It's pure ice here.. everywhere.

Blindgreed: I listened to XX and XIII by Mushroomhead the other day.. XX wasn't that impressive to me, except their Pink Floyd cover. XIII was great, and I loved their cover of "Crazy" by Seal at the end, that cracked me up. The production on XIII was a lot better, too (bigger budget, of course). That's just my opinion, though.

Now playing: Deicide - "Go Now Your Lord Is Dead"

TOG: Solitaire Unravveling is my favorite song from that era. You must have the first version of double X. They remastered that once they got signed with Universal.

NP: White Cluster - Opeth.

ah ha Bg1 - Solitaire Unravveling is a killer tune... thats the first song I heard by Mushroomhead and I loved it.. It sounds killer at 500 watts in my living room..!!

TOG - Oddly enough, I grew up in the 70s during Ozzy era Sabbath and Dio era Rainbow...!!
Always loved Dio's voice more than Ozzy's..... then Dio joined Sabbath, and with Iommi and Butler it was like a match made in Heaven (and Hell) ;-)
But then came the Born Again album with Ian Gillian.... WOW... now there is a heavy f^ckin Black Sabbath album...!! Right Bg1..?

Yeah I meant Geezer Butler - he is awesome. I don't take anything away from Iommi - but I like Bass guitar the most. Great news to hear! I also like old Sabbath with Ozzy as the singer. Into the Void is so badass!! I like Dio - but still prefer to listen to older Black Sabbath Ozzy-era. Heaven and Hell is good, though, too.

godlike: Nothing wrong with that. I love Dio, don't get me wrong, I just prefer Ozzy's work with Sabbath. I've never heard anything they put out with any of their other singers, though, like Ian Gillian, etc... Maybe I'll have to check it out somehow, sometime.

TOG - OMG.... you HAVE to find Black Sabbaths "Born Again"... with Ian Gillian ( Deep Purple)
That is without a doubt one of THE heaviest Black Sabbath albums EVER.... Gillians voice is amazing on the album..!!

Yeah, I'll probably end up getting "The Dio Years" by Black Sabbath just to get the best songs with Dio.. I'll probably end up getting "Born Again" somewhere down the line, too. I just don't like Dio enough to get complete discographies, lol.
