Black Sabbath - Mob Rules.

"Voodoo" stands out for me as does the devastatingly monstrous riff of "Sign of The Southern Cross", which is basically Godzilla's DNA in music form.
So "Mob Rules" isn't, IMO, the poor cousin to the previous album and it was a pleasure and privilege to hear these tunes do what turned out to be a lap of honour when they were toured under the "Heaven & Hell" banner prior to Dio's passing. "Mob Rules" rules! m/

Oh that is a really great record. The Sign of the "Southern Cross" / "Heaven & Hell" medley on the Dio era live album is also an absolute corker.

I saw THAT line-up on the Mob Rules tour (Hammy Odeon!) which was fab to my then young eyes, ears and brain, but "Southern Cross" as done by Heaven & Hell was....ooooh....just fucking HUGE and incredible so many years later.
