4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated album.... June 29 2004
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
I probably can't add alot more in this review than others have in theirs...but here goes anyway !
I was initially disappointed when Ozzy was kicked out of Black Sabbath and replaced by Ronnie James Dio...and the same when Ian Gillan replaced Dio...but with each new singer and album...I felt they STILL had that "Sabbath sound"...just a fresh approach ! It also helped that I love Dio and Gillan's vocals with their other bands.
"Born Again" to me is underrated because of the expectations and previous shoes to fill...I suppose...but the work of Tony Iommi...Terry Butler and Bill Ward (welcome back albeit briefly at the time)...is EXCEPTIONAL here...and Ian Gillan sounds...well...like Ian Gillan...I enjoy his work! I think Ian overdid the sinister laughter and screaming on "Disturbing The Priest"...it almost sounded like he was making fun of the Sabbath "sinister" reputation...but it's a GREAT song ! Other standouts are "Trashed"....based on Ian having a few and then trashing a go-cart if I remember my story correctly..."Zero The Hero"...with some of the best guitar and rhythm ever done on a heavy metal album...a very catchy song...also the title song "Born Again" stands out for me. It has a very spooky...haunting feel to it. The rest of the songs are okay...but this Castle label release sounds pretty good to me...and there's a nice booklet with photos inside.
Of course Bill Ward didn't tour due to health reasons that year...and taking his place was ELO drummer Bev Bevan...and odd choice to me...but a great drummer...and friends told me the tour was pretty good !
This album may not be for everyone or for all Sabbath fans...but it's good....just for the fact that three of the four origional members are back together on it and played well !

5.0 out of 5 stars Born Again Indeed! April 1 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Born Again is my favourite album of all time. #1. Numero uno. Primo musico.

It wasn't always that way. When I first owned it (on cassette) I really only enjoyed two songs, "Trashed" and "Zero The Hero". But I was persistent. Soon other songs started to emerge from the muddy morass that is this album: "Born Again", "Keep It Warm", "Disturbing The Priest". Now, fully 25 years after first hearing this album, it is an indispensible part of my collection and my musical background. I don't know exactly why I love it so much. It certainly is an ugly duckling of an album, but like most ugly ducklings, even the hard-to-love aspects eventually become beautiful.

In 1983, Don Arden (father of Sharon Osbourne) recommended that Black Sabbath tap Ian Gillan (ex-Deep Purple) as new lead vocalist replacing Ronnie James Dio. Gillan had just folded his self-titled band (the excellent Gillan which you should check out) to rejoin Deep Purple, but the reunion failed to happen. Drummer Bill Ward, at this point a hopeless alcoholic and still reeling from the death of his father, but still managed to come back long enough to record this album. (Soon, he was out again and replaced by ELO's Bev Bevan, whose picture is included inside.) The original idea was to call this band something besides Black Sabbath, but somehow it did become an official Black Sabbath album.

"Trashed", a fast smoker, kicks you in the face right from the beginning with Ian Gillan's colourful storytelling. "It really wasn't easy, the bottle took a beating, the ladies of the Manor, watched me climb into my car..." No question what this song is about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CRIMINALLY IGNORED CLASSIC SABBATH ALBUM March 1 2006
Format:Audio CD
WHILE I DO AGREE THAT OZZY IS THE ORIGINAL AND THE MOST NOTORIOUS OF ALL SABBATH FRONTMEN AND IN REALITY, NO ONE ELSE SHOULD BE FRONTING SABBATH, LIFE HAD OTHER PLANS FOR SABBATH FANS. WHILE TECHNICALLY, RONNIE JAMES DIO IS THE BEST SABBATH VOCALIST, IAN GILLAN IS VASTLY UNDERRATED. I REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST HEARD THIS ALBUM ON VINYL, MY BLOOD JUST FROZE. I MEAN, THE MOMENT "TRASHED" STARTED, I WAS IMMEDIATLY HOOKED. I WAS ONLY 14 AT THE TIME AND WAS COMPLETELY GREEN TO THE WHOLE SABBATH LEGACY. I HAD NO PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS AS TO WHO SHOULD BE FRONTING SABBATH. GILLAN'S SCREAMS IN "DISTURBING THE PRIEST" ARE ABSOLUTELY MIND-BOGGLING. "ZERO THE HERO" IS DEFINITLY AN OVERLOOKED CLASSIC. THE PRODUCTION IS A LITTLE AMATEURISH, BUT YET, IT GIVES IT A CERTAIN UNDERGROUND FLAVOUR, SOMETHING AN OVERPRODUCED RECORD CANNOT PROVIDE. MY ADVICE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST DISCOVERING SABBATH OR TO THOSE WHO OVERLOOKED THIS ALBUM WHEN IT WAS FIRST RELEASED: GET THIS ONE NOW. A FEW LISTENS LATER YOU'LL BE WON OVER BY TONY IOMMI'S MAGIC RIFFS. NO ONE DOES IOMMI RIFFS LIKE IOMMI. TOO BAD THIS LINEUP DIDN'T LAST AS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN INTERESTING TO SEE IT EVOLVE.

4.0 out of 5 stars A PERSONAL FAVORITE CULT CLASSIC June 2 2004
By s mcvay
Format:Audio CD
I personally saw this tour and definitely like the album. The one thing I didn't like, as with the Dio years, was that though both singers did good for the material on the albums they recorded with Black Sabbath, neither were right to cover the Ozzy songs. I always found that strange about Iommi, he would get singers that fit great for the new material but weren't the right tone for the previous stuff. Anyhow, I think this is a good album. Not for everyone, but not all is!

One of the best singing performance of Ian Gillan. However, there is a profound lack of synergy within the group. Read more
