Product Description

Review

Even when Ozzy screeches wildly off-key, the album still sounds bloody brilliant. -- Entertainment Weekly

Amazon.ca

Nobody does Black Sabbath songs justice like the original four. With Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward all relatively sound of mind and body, Reunion finds them finally backed by a juggernaut of smart businesspeople and producers who realize what's at stake. The mix is crisp and eye-watering, and the four legends rumble like one thick cloud of doom. Trackwise, it's all the hits plus a few stray wanderings off-kilter ("Dirty Women"). The much-anticipated pair of new studio tracks are a mixed lot: "Psycho Man" is a Kiss-grade metal lurch with an atrocious B-movie lyric that somehow escaped Osbourne's usually reliable cheese radar. "Selling My Soul," however, is convincingly ominous, with Iommi creating piles of dark chords. --Martin Popoff

Reunion(1998). Black Sabbath's Third Live Album.
On December 4th, 1997, 4 of the most renound Metal Gods came together for one final Black Sabbath performance: Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward. Thinking they could make a quick buck, the original four members and thousands of fans amassed in Birmingham's NEC Arena, for just one last chance to see Heavy Metal's creator one last time. Although they had met for a Live Aid concert in 1985 and a 4-song appearance at Ozzy's 1992 "Farewell" concert, the "Reunion" concert was their first full-length concert in 13 years, and was most likely the last time they would be seen together. Previous live releases, such as Live At Last(Bad Sound Production) and Live Evil(Dio singing Ozzy songs!) had their faults, but Reunion fully captures Sabbath in their prime, still able to play at blistering speeds after 20 years, with Ozzy's vocals still echoing sarcasm, Iommi's riffs and solos reaching technical ecstacy, Ward's drumming spot-on, and Butler's bass still resounding doom, Black Sabbath is spot-on, and the sound production couldn't be better!
Track Listing-
"Reunion"'s Track Listing is phenomenal, picking songs from the original 8 albums, Black Sabbath picked the big hits, such as "War Pigs", "Iron Man", "Paranoid", and "N.I.B.". They also picked many fan favorites, such as "Sweet Leaf","Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", "Children of the Grave", "Fairies Wear Boots", and "Black Sabbath". Then, completely out of left field, Black Sabbath picked many random songs from their past, and improved on them immensely, creating some of the best songs on "Reunion".

In 1979 Ozzy Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath or quit, depending who's side of the story you wanna believe. It was to be over eighteen years before the original lineup got back together, although there were brief moments of hope for the fans like the one off performance at Live Aid in 1985. In fact, over those eighteen years Sabbath had recorded ten different albums, all of which had different personnel. Twenty-three musicians had been through the ranks, not counting hundreds of auditions.
Giant Stonehenge monoliths for the stage that could not be fitted into the concert halls they were playing; Dwarfs on stage; famous vocalists who did not know the lyrics to classic Sabbath songs; getting lost on the way to the stage; and drummers disappearing into the dry ice. You name it, Sabbath had either done it, or somebody had done it to them. But through it all there were still some great moments and great albums from both, Sabbath and Ozzy, who's own band was just as liquid as Sabbaths. (Ozzy Osbourne, with the help of his wife Sharon, had gone on to be far more commercially successful than Sabbath had ever been. The two of them had been the main inspiration for a movie called 'Spinal Tap'.)
Realizing the time was right, and to be fair, they probably realized a buck or two could be made out of the gig, it was decided to put the original Black Sabbath together and do those songs properly again. Bridges were built and contracts were signed (which was more than Sabbath managed the first time around). They never received a dime in royalties for their first album as they were paid a one off sum of one thousand pounds, given two days to record, and that was it.

This live disc is so great. Sabbath plays all of the songs perfectly, probably cause they were all sober at the time. The tracklist is composed mostly of the songs from "Black Sabbath," "Paranoid," and "Master of Reality," but there are some surprises. "Dirty Women," "Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath," "A Spiral Architect," and of course the cocaine ballad "Snowblind" are all included. The two new tracks "Psycho Man," and "Selling My Soul" are both decent. "Psycho Man" is kind of cheesy, but "selling my soul" isn't, which subsequently makes it the better of the two new tracks. However; "Psycho Man" is the only track that has all four members playing. "Selling My Soul" does not feature Bill Ward on drums. The only problem musically, is on "Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath;" the band doesn't perform the whole sludge part of the song before ending it( if you're a Sabbath fan, you know what part of the song I'm talking about). Anyways...this cd is sweet!

Well, it's an Epic release, anyway.
"Reunion" is as close to an official live album as the original Black Sabbath-lineup has had in their 34-year career. 1980's "Live At Last" was released without their permission, and 1982's "Live Evil" featured then-singer Ronnie James Dio.
But here it is, finally, and "Reunion" does not disappoint. Culled from a series of concerts in their native Birmingham in December 1997, it includes their most enduring classics ("Black Sabbath", "War Pigs", "Paranoid", "Iron Man", "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath").
And Sabbath manages to avoid the most common pitfall of live recordings: speeding up the songs. This is crucial, since songs like "Sweet Leaf", "Black Sabbath", and "Snowblind" owe a lot of their unique personality and somber atmospherics to the band's trademark snail's pace.
The drums are exceptionally well recorded (that is, loud), and everything is louder than everything else, just the way it should be. (Or in plain English: you can hear everything just about equally well; nothing is mixed into the background.)
I wouldn't have put "Behind The Wall Of Sleep" on right after "War Pigs" (it becomes very obvious that "Wall" is just "Pigs" with a slightly altered melody and a different arrangement).
And Ozzy Osbourne's vocals aren't quite as strong as the were 30 years ago (he can't hit the highest notes during "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath"). But he can still carry a tune, something which he couldn't always 30 years ago, and guitarist Tony Iommi has lost absolutely none of his impressive chops.
Bill Ward lays down an appropriately heavy beat, one which doesn't just plod along without variation, but actually shows what a fine heavy metal drummer Ward is.
