The only reason this was called a Sabbath album was due to pressure on Iommi from management, to which he acquiesced. The Sabbath name took a bit of a hit as a result, and the album never did very well. That's too bad, because once you get past the Sabbath controversy it's a pretty good hard rock album with strong tracks, good playing and decent if not great production. Mine is an English import (Seventh Star was never released in NA on CD) and it sounds a little muddy. Not great but certainly worth a listen, and tracks like the title track, "Heart Like a Wheel" and "Danger Zone" are worth the price of admission. As well, it's a great opportunity to hear Eric Singer (KISS) beat skins in a different context.
