Good Points
Some great playing,as usual, from Tony Iommi.

Bad Points
It`s just boring & corny.

General Comments
Black Sabbath, Seventh Star - Vocalist Glen Hughes, the prominent session singer, features in this automated, stereotypical mish-mash of blues-orientated metal. At times, especially with the opening track `In for the kill, the music almost makes you cringe & wince. Cheesey is an understatement as you're left with dated impressions of bleached hair, mullets & typically stylized 80`s Miami Vice innuendo. The album isn't really that bad, it's just so corny. It's like that whole `Foreigner, Magnum and Trickster` era that you'd rather forget cause people took embarrassing photos of you sporting rolled up leather sleeves. I imagine that Iommi feels the same about this musical collaboration - "Best left". It's interesting to note Hughes was replaced fairly quickly with the unknown Ray Gillan after revelations, he couldn't cut it live.

Glen is, after all, a session singer and this whole album screams cash-in rather than music demonstrating any artistic expression. The album's forgettable, you`ve heard it all a thousand times before from numerous, facless clones. Simply put, It isn't Black Sabbath. You won't miss this one from your collection. Without doubt, the worst Sabbath album ever but perhaps a talking piece for hardcore Sabbath fans?
