In 2011, when Black Sabbath announced their reunion, all four original members were present, a rare case among bands of their era.

But it’s also a play on the soul influences that make their way into songs like the title track, inspired by recording sessions down in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where even the river sings with a swing. Tyson treats the horns here with plenty of care, but,...
