2 stars This is where Black Sabbath lost the magic in most respects. That vintage quality sound they consistently put out was virtually non existent on Technical Ectasy. Great concept for an album title and an OK cover did better than the music itself. The songwriting let's everyone down here with none of the epic standout tracks even from the excellent predecessor Sabotage. Could a band shift so dramatically from one album to the next? Black Sabbath certainly did. No major great tunes here other than ' You won't change Me' and ' Gypsy'. Ozzy was on his way soon too which in many ways had to happen as I believe his creative input to the band had ceased after Sabotage. True BS fans have this album or will get it otherwise go for their earlier material.
