While the critical reception wasn't initially kind to the final Black Sabbath album of the Tony Martin era, time's healing powers have offered the eighteenth full-length a slight reprieve, with many now learning to appreciate the ambition Tony Iommi imbued into the project. Many might have scoffed at Ernie C of Body Count handling production duties, even enlisting bandmate Ice-T for the spoken word section of opener, 'The Illusion Of Time', but with the subsequent reunion of Iommi and Ozzy not long after, there's no denying the sheer individuality this album offered, toying with everything from blues to power metal motifs. Martin would go on to refer to the effort as a "filler album that got the band out of the label deal, rid of the singer, and into the reunion", but with the near-two decade wait for, '13', some still gave Forbidden, the spins and attention it deserved. Reissued for forgiving ears and those willing to revisit.
