There is more attention to the guitar elements on "Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath Vol. II" than on the first volume. Album opener "Supernaut" is bolstered with muscled-up horn arrangements and a tasty bongo break, but the aggressive guitar riff lets you know what's driving this train. Album closer, "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", finds vocalist Alex Marerro being joined on vocals by Ghostland Observatory's Aaron Behrens. As the song closes, the brooding number switches tempo and the percussion underlying the lead guitars leads to a Latin-infused breakdown. On "Snowblind", Marerro channels Ozzy to chilling effect, matching the dread of Greg Gonzalez's bass and a menacing lead guitar solo. And while horns kick off "Children Of The Grave", the star of the show is the band"s rhythm section that makes a song about love and revolution move the needle from rock to metal. Ozzy Osbourne approved!
