After a brief departure, Ozzy returned and Sabbath shot back up the charts; this LP hit the U.S. charts in '78 and produced two UK Top 40s, Never Say Die and Hard Road !
After quitting briefly following the band's previous tour, singer Ozzy Osbourne returned to Black Sabbath for 1978's Never Say Die! The title track kicks things off with a promising bang but ultimately lacks enthusiasm; a pleasant surprise arrives in the very original and experimental "Air Dance," featuring tasteful piano flourishes from leading session keyboardist Don Airey. Never Say Die! is best suited for Sabbath completists. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
