  • I’ve had the first N.I.B. disc floating around for years. I loved it, so naturally, I had to buy this one. N.I.B. II is a better version of the original. Better covers, and dare I say…better bands? (Soulfly sure beats Ugly Kid Joe)The best track on here is definetly System of a Down’s take on “Snowblind.” It is one of the few tracks on here that sounds nothing like the original and is awesome non-the-less. S.O.A.D. have taken “Snowblind” and twisted into a song of their own which is nothing but pure raw energy. “N.I.B.” by Primus W/ Ozzy is another standout, it is really fun to crank this one up loud. Ozzy’s voice mixed with Les Claypool’s bass is the perfect mix. (Hed) P.E.’s “Sabbra Cadabra” is another great song, again, not copying the original, but still staying true to the Sabbath vibe. I really like this song cuz they didn’t feel the need to be heavy just for the hell of it. Pantera covering “Electric Funeral” sounds more like an updated version of the original, with Phil’s voice sounding a lot like Ozzy’s. The only disappointments on here is Monster Magnet’s drudging “Into the Void” and of course, Busta Rhymes defecation of “Iron Man.”If you are a fan of any of the bands on here, do not skip this CD. It is well worth the money. As for the old time Black Sabbath fan, you might not find what you’re looking for on here, BUT Pantera, Primus, and Slayer’s tracks will most likely please you.
