The new Sabbath- I'm struggling with it.....

Firstly, the clinical sterile production is atrocious, there's no 'dirtiness' to it at all, and the tippity tap drum sound is laughable, such a shame as I was really looking forward to this album, and 'God is Dead' really had me hook, line and sinker expecting a great album.

There are the bits where they rip themselves off so obviously it's painful, 'The End of the Beginning' rips of 'Black Sabbath' itself, whilst the quiet one(can't remember the name of it) is desperate to be 'Planet Caravan' part 2.

It also sounds far more like an Ozzy solo record than a Sabbath album for the most part.

There are three songs that I love, 'God is Dead', 'Damaged Soul' and 'Peace of Mind', but I don't think I'll play the rest much at all.

Have to say the new Orchid and Age of Taurus albums are far better examples of the doom genre.

Am I just a grouch, was I setting my expectations too high? What does everyone else feel?
