3605 cover  

Sabbath kept their producer (Martin Birch), hired a new drummer (Vinny Appice), and by all accounts re-made their last album all over again. Thatís not a bad thing; some fans even give Mob Rules the nod over Heaven and Hell, and that was a darn good album. Definitely worth owning if youíve snatched up some of the bandís lamer albums (with and without Ozzy) by mistake.
