Never Say Die Album Lyrics

This album is a lot more Hard Rock-oriented than other Black Sabbath,less riff-driven and more focused on Tony Iommi's musical experimentations. The band had been incorporating new ideas into their songs ever since "Vol. 4,"and each album found an increasing amount of pianos, synths, and other surprises. On "Technical Ecstasy," the band sounded bogged down by these experiments, which, coupled with Ozzy's poor vocal delivery and the frail production, seriously wounded the record. On "Never Say Die!" the experimentation fits in perfectly alongside the hard riffage, resulting in a record with both variety and flow.

BLACK SABBATH tried a lot of new things on "Never Say Die!", and for the most part, I'd say that they worked. Ozzy sounds MUCH better than he did on "Technical Ecstasy," though still a little flat compared to "Sabotage" and the earlier records. I really think that this album would have been better received had it come directly after "Sabotage" – "Technical Ecstasy" spelled the doom (no pun intended) of the Ozzy-era SABBATH. If "Technical Ecstasy" had never existed, I'd bet that people would be talking instead about the classic first seven SABBATH albums, rather than just the first six.
