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 !

Born Again (1983.) Black Sabbath's eleventh album.
Following the recording of Black Sabbath's Live Evil album, a dispute broke out in the band. Following this dispute, singer Ronnie James Dio and drummer Vinnie Appice left the band to form Dio's solo band. Fortunately though, original Sabbath drummer Bill Ward returned to the band. They needed a new vocalist, though. Who'd they pick? None other than legendary Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan! Gillan had recently been playing in his own band, The Ian Gillan Band (known in their later years simply as Gillan), but was unable to find a lot of success. But now, he'd be singing for THE heavy metal band. Read on for my review of this album.
The guitar mastery of Tony Iommi combined with the killer vocals of Ian Gillan... together in the same band! Ozzy and Dio were not easy vocalists to replace at all, but Gillan was a fine choice. This album sounds like, well, as you may have guessed, a cross between Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. Trashed, the opening rocker, is a hard rocker reminiscent of Sabbath's recent years with vocalist Ronnie James Dio - but the vocals are distinctly Gillan-styled. Stonehenge is a rather pointless and dull instrumental, but it's immediately followed by the excellent Disturbing The Priest. My personal favorite track on the album would probably have to be Digital Bitch. Gillan performs this song in a style very similar to that of Highway Star, a Deep Purple classic that Gillan sang on over a decade before. Through and through, this is a killer album from start to finish. Admittingly, some songs are too long and some come off seeming like fillers when compared to the other ones present, but I'm not complaining. For the most part, this album flat out rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was a surprise Oct. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Didnt think this album would be THIS good. I mean I'm giving it a 5 STAR RATING here, the most I ever expected was maybe 2 or 3, maybe only finding a few good songs on the CD and no more. WRONG. Just buy this album, simple as that. Maybe it's better if you are more a Deep Purple fan than a Sabbath fan, but just be a metal fan, cause this CD is all that in spades. Someone called this heavier Deep Purple, absolutely correct. It's obvious this line-up would never have continued for all that long but it would have been nice for at least a couple of more albums. Forget production talk, forgot Gillan's dumbass lyrics, he makes Sabbath sound more evil than ever. Dio was a great vocalist but there was nothing sinister about him. Gillan's odd and death-calling screams are what make this album truly scary, ok that and Geezer's bass, it's totally cranked here for max effect. And no lie, I have never in my life heard someone scream so prominately than Gillan on "Disturbing the Priest" towards the end of the song. Sabbath hasn't had this much inspiration and great songs since Ozzy was kicked out. Forget all you ever used to know about Sabbath or Gillan, get this album because it's heavy metal, GOOD heavy metal, and thats what the world needs in 2003! Favourite Picks: Each track, althought to be honest, if I could toss one it would be "Keep It Warm" not really bad, but just ehh!

4.0 out of 5 stars not a good Sabbath album, but a great rock album May 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
My girlfriend hates heavy metal, but loves this album. This tells me something.
This album is not for everyone, especially die-hard Black Sabbath fans who want the band's sound and image to be set in stone and unchangeable. The Ozzy era was classic, the Dio period distinct for diferent reasons... and then Born Again comes along.
Ian Gillan himself admits "I was the worst singer Black Sabbath ever had." I whole-heartedly disagree. In terms of raw talent he's the top of the bunch, though his vocal style is admittedly more suited to Deep Purple or Jesus Christ Superstar than Black Sabbath. Too much screaming, which while impressive, does nothing for the over-all effect. He also wrote the lyrics for this album, and they are deceidedly "un-Sabbath." No doom and gloom nuclear devistation/drug abuse/dark occultism here; half of the songs are about women. The production is still muddy (the "Remastering" is unnoticeable; I suspect there's a lot of subtlety lurking in the original mix, but it's hard to pick it out.) Plus the cover looks like a Terry Gilliam cartoon from Monty Python's Flying Circus.
That said, I *LOVE* this album. The band is tight, Iommi has a guitar tone I'd give my incisors for, and Ian Gillan is, well, Ian Gillan.
It's a good, solid album, but not for everyone. This is an album you either love or hate. You should probably preview the tracks a few times before getting it. I think "Trashed" alone makes it worth buying, but "Disturbing the Priest" is downright creepy and "Zero the Hero" is a monster track (I am endlessly amused that Danzig and Guns & Roses "borrowed" the main lick for "Her Black Wings" and "Paradise City" respectively.)
Like my review title says: this is not a good "Black Sabbath" album, but it's a great "rock" album.
