    This album has been a long time coming, but it was definitely worth the wait. Black Sabbath's 13 instantly casts a spell through its fine alchemy of Tony Iommi's riff wizardy, Geezer Butler's haunting bass, and Ozzy Osbourne's inimitable wail. Compounded with studio drumming from Rage Against the Machine's Brad Wilk, this is as timeless as Sabbath's best work from the seventies, but it doesn't feel retro. This is a delightfully devilish modern beast and a new milestone for metal's forefathers.
