Down To Earth
Review by Gary Hill
Quite a few critics have said that the strength of this album is the fact that it doesn't waver from Ozzy's tried and true style, and that fact establishes a musical reliability in a sea of changing music. Well, this reviewer for one thinks that they must not have really listened to this album.

Ozzy Osbourne - God Bless Ozzy Osbourne BluRay
Review by Gary Hill
This documentary is quite good, but not without its flaws. I mean, the insights into the personal life of Ozzy are pretty interesting.

Ozzy Osbourne - Speak of the Devil DVD
Review by Gary Hill
To have a concert film of this tour is a good thing. Randy Rhoads had just died and Ozzy was emotionally at a low point in his life, but career wise he was on fire.

Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
Review by Gary Hill
Released in 1969 in the last days of the hippie era, Black Sabbath`s debut had definite roots in what had come before, but was a major change in tone.

You could say that there are enough Alice Cooper compilations out there. Here’s the thing, though.

Alice Cooper - Hey Stoopid
Review by Gary Hill
This album showcases a metal perpective on the classic Cooper sound and also shows prog tendencies in several places. Alice is joined on this album by many musicians, including several very notables guests (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Ozzy Osbourne and others).

Iommi - Iommi
Review by Gary Hill
This solo release by Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has quite a bit in common with last year’s Supernatural release by Santana. In both cases you have a guitar legend, who is an almost undisputed originator of his musical genre.

Black Sabbath - Live at Ozzfest, 2004, East Troy, WI
Review by Gary Hill
Ever since their original reunion with Ozzy I have made a point to see Black Sabbath whenever they came around. This time marks the 6th time I saw the lineup, and of all the shows, it was the weakest.

Black Sabbath - Live in Chicago, IL, June 8th, 2001
Review by Gary Hill
Having seen Sabbath the last couple times around, I was expecting another similar show - a band of living legends performing as legends, going through the motions of repeating the performances from their glory days. Not that that would not have been enjoyable, I signed on for two days of Ozzfest just for that experience two more times

Black Sabbath - Live in Chicago, January 19, 1999
Review by Gary Hill
Black Sabbath really invented the genre of heavy metal, and, to this day performs the genre in a way that many have copied but none have duplicated.

Black Sabbath - Master of Reality
Review by Gary Hill
Black Sabbath’s third album is often overlooked. The first two were really defining a sound so they get more of the limelight.

Mountain - Masters of War
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always greatly admired Bob Dylan’s songwriting. I’ve not always been so impressed with his musical performances.

Various Artists - Nativity In Black
Review by Rick Damigella
  It is safe to say that while there were forces all happening simultaneously in music in the late 60’s, which would later be regarded as the elements from which heavy metal evolved. One band crawled forth, nay, stomped out of, the primordial ooze of the late sixties music scene to single handedly create an entirely new sound heretofore unheard coming from the speakers of stereos of the youth of the world.

Black Sabbath - Never Say Die
Review by Gary Hill
Black Sabbath were arguably the creators of the heavy metal genre, but were never really happy to rest on their laurels for that accomplishment. They generally have pushed the envelope in many ways touching on musical styles which most metal bands consider out of their realm.

Black Sabbath - Never Say Die DVD
Review by Greg Olma

There is not a lot of video footage from Ozzy Osbourne’s initial tenure with Black Sabbath.

Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Review by Gary Hill
The second album from Black Sabbath, this isn’t quite as revolutionary as their debut, but that’s probably because of how groundbreaking that one was and the fact that this builds on the music they created there.

This set features live recordings of the original lineup of Black Sabbath.

Rick Wakeman - Return To The Centre of The Earth
Review by Gary Hill
By going back to his past, Rick Wakeman has created an album that is nearly a masterpiece. A sequel to his Journey to the Centre of the Earth disc, Return to the Centre of the Earth is a very potent progressive rock concept album.

Black Sabbath - Reunion
Review by Gary Hill
Reunion represents the first performance of all the original members of Black Sabbath as a unit since 1979. The album is a two-disc set that consists of concert recordings from December of 1987 teamed with two new studio cuts. The band is back in all its glory.

Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Review by Gary Hill

It has to be tough to invent a musical style like Black Sabbath did. There’s no one around to tell you what does and doesn’t constitute heavy metal.

Black Sabbath - Sabotage
Review by Gary Hill

I know many regard this as kind of a throw away Black Sabbath album. Certainly the lackluster cover didn’t help.

Black Sabbath - Technical Ecstasy
Review by Gary Hill
A controversial album for Black Sabbath, this disc found them stretching into new and untried directions. The trademarked Sab metal is still present, but it is joined by other diverse sounds.

Review by Gary Hill

Black Sabbath - The Last Supper-DVD
Review by Gary Hill
As both a die-hard Black Sabbath fanatic and one who was fortunate enough to see the band several times on their reunion tour, I was really looking forward to this DVD. The quality of the performance, the videography and sound all lived up to my expectations, showing just how phenomenal of a tour this was.
