Initially the band hoped to record in their own studio to save money and actually purchased a sound desk; but, according to Iommi, "We just couldn't get a guitar sound. We tried it in the studio. We tried it in the hallway.
We tried it everywhere but it just wasn't working. We'd bought a studio and it wasn't working! Mob Rules was the first Sabbath album to feature Vinny Appice on drums, who had replaced original member Bill Ward in the middle of the Heaven and Hell tour. Bill was one of his favourite drummers and so he knew all his parts and my bass parts and he adjusted accordingly to everybody in the band.
He was brilliant. He came in and totally filled in Bill's shoes. In an interview for the concert film Neon Nights: 30 Years of Heaven and HellButler cites "The Sign of the Southern Cross" as his favourite Mob Rules track because "it gave me a chance to experiment with some bass effects". The album was the last time the band worked with producer Sheer Madness - Polkadot Cadaver - Last Call In Jonestown engineer Martin Birch, who went on to work with Iron Maiden E5150 - Black Sabbath - Mob Rules his retirement in Iommi explained to Guitar World in"We were all going through a lot of problems at that time, most of it related to drugs.

That felt a Flower - Eels - Electro-Shock Blues Show (Recorded Live) odd to us, because we were a band and we didn't want to separate anybody.
Geezer had gone so we wrote in a very controlled environment in a living room with little amplifiers. And with Mob Rules we hired a studio, turned up as loud as possible and smashed through it all. So it made for a different kind of an attitude".
Iommi reflected to Guitar World in" Mob Rules was a confusing album for us. We started writing songs differently for some reason, and ended up not using a lot of really great material. That line-up was really great, and the whole thing fell apart for very silly reasons — we were all acting like children. Now, though, the creative chemistry had shifted.
The cover art is a modified version of artist Greg Hildebrandt 's piece entitled Dream 1: Crucifiers fromwith Black Sabbath licensing its use for the cover of Mob Rules.

AllMusic 's Greg Prato calls the album "underrated"  and enthuses, " Mob Rules was given a much punchier, in-your-face mix by Birch, who seemed re-energized after his work on new wave of British heavy metal upstarts Iron Maiden's Killers album.
Essentially, Mob Rules is a magnificent record, with the only serious problem being the sequencing of the material, which mirrors Heaven and Hell's almost to a tee.

Profiling Telecast - Larvae - Dead Weight album inBryan Reesman noted, "Even with Dio bringing in more fantasy-based lyrics, and moving the group away from seemingly Satanic verses, the title track to Mob Rulesnot to mention its menacing cover, could easily imply a call to anarchy.
But beyond the snarling guitars and vocals is actually a cautionary tale against mindless mayhem. All lyrics were written by Ronnie James Dio except where noted. BPI certification  United Kingdom. CRIA certification  Canada. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
