Format: Audio CD
The only Black Sabbath album with Glenn Hughes on vocals. The only one released under the somewhat silly name "Black Sabbath Featuring Tony Iommi". The first one to feature no original members except Tony himself, with Geezer and Bill departing after the disasterous hiring of a new singer named Dave "Donut" Donato, a male model. That bore no fruit, and Iommi instead toiled away on what he intended to be his first solo album....

Finally, Seventh Star has been given the Deluxe Edition treatment. I've been waiting for some kind of official release of the music video version of "No Stranger To Love" for 24 years. Finally it is available on this Deluxe Edition, along with a pretty good live show featuring Ray Gillen on vocals. I already have a Ray show on bootleg (a very common one called The Ray Gillen Years) but this is a completely different show with a different setlist.

Seventh Star as an album probably never should have been released under the Black Sabbath name. It's truly a solo album that Warner Bros didn't want to release as a Tony Iommi album. So here it is, an official Sabbath album. If that didn't occur, would Sabbath as an entity even have continued? I doubt it. Sabbath here consists of:

Tony Iommi - guitars
Glenn Hughes - lead vocals
Dave "The Beast" Spitz - bass
Eric Singer - drums
Geoff Nicholls - keyboards

Only Iommi and Nicholls remain from previous Sabbath lineups. You know Glenn Hughes of course from his soulful wail in Deep Purple, and Eric Singer from his later work in Kiss. Here, the five musicians coalesce into a more commercial version of Black Sabbath. The hard hitting riffs are still there, the frenetic solos, the mystical lyrics, the pounding drums. Yet these songs are more melodic.

Format: Audio CD
To some Black Sabbath was Ozzy's old band, to some it was the band that had 3 albums with Dio but to real followers of the band who stuck long after either of those singers left Black Sabbath. Those are people who don't understand that Iommi IS Black Sabbath, he continued the band once the success was a thing of the past because Sabbath is his baby and just couldn't watch it die. Iommi kept Sabbath alive because he was the only one who never left and he has seen many musicians come in and out of the band over the years. "Seventh Star" was released in 1986 and was supposed to be Iommi's solo album, that's the way it turned out because it doesn't sound so much like Sabbath but the record company wanted to label it as a Black Sabbath album. The album was credited as Black Sabbath Featuring Tony Iommi" to please everyone; it's ironic because by this point Iommi was the only original and real member of the band by this point!

In my opinion the singer for the album Glen Huges (former Deep Purple) is a much better singer than he is given credit for; he is simply underrated because of the legendary singers that were in Black Sabbath before him: Ozzy Osbourne, Ronnie James Dio and Ian Gillian. For some Black Sabbath fans there is nothing good at all after Ozzy or Dio, that is understandable but those fans choose to overlook "Seventh Star" and the rest of the albums the band released and may miss out on some great music. Huges sounds great on songs like "In For The Kill" and the title track, I remembered him from early Deep Purple albums and thought he sounded great on those as well, he's an excellent singer.

Seventh Star has some great songs: "In For The Kill" is without a doubt the heaviest song here with a Sabbath sounding riff, I think it's one of the best songs on the whole album.

Many people thought that Sabbath had run its course by the mid 80's. The Ian Gillen experiment didn't work out (I still like Born Again even though many don't) and Sabbath was down to Tony Iommi and little else. It was supposed to be a solo album but he was persuaded to use the Sabbath moniker and move forward. Good choice. While these tunes are unlike Sabbath of old, they still have some of the characteristics. Iommi's heavy riffs, pounding bass lines and somewhat heavy drums. "In For The Kill" has all of these and more. Even the ballad "No Stranger To Love" has its merits, including a pretty solid solo from Iommi.
It's not your typical Sabbath album, but give it a listen anyway. You'll find more similarities with classic Sabbath than differences.

The album itself, if you haven't heard it, is not not very Sabbath-sounding (though since H&H what does that even mean?) Singing is very good, there are a couple bum tracks, but overall a great album.

The second disc features clips from a live show with Ray Gillen on vocals. The audio isn't great, but it's very cool to hear because he had an awesome voice. Again it might not blend too well with the Sabbath name for many people, but they included some very good tracks.
