Sabbath is one of my favorite bands and Masters of Reality is one of my all time favorite albums, but when I heard this song my heart sank. I've never been a fan of Ozzie's solo stuff, and frankly, over the years his voice has become very annoying. I liked a couple of songs he did with the late Randy Rhoads, but otherwise his music is rather pedestrian and not very interesting. I love Iommi's riffage here (he is the riff master), and the rhythm section of Butler and Ward is terrific as always, but Ozzie's voice is nothing but a grating distraction to me. I really wanted to like this, but I just can't seem to get past my dislike of Ozzie's contribtution. And it hurts to say that.
