The album received a generally negative response from critics and fans alike. After its release, the band underwent several line-up changes and found itself at a career crossroads. The recording of Forbidden followed some late lineup changes within the band, with Butler replaced by Murray and Powell returning in the immediate aftermath of the Cross Purposes tour. The album was launched in June The album's opening track, "The Illusion of Power", features a verse by hip-hop artist Ice-T of the group Body Count delivering a spoken word part during the song's bridge.
Body Count member Ernie C produced, recorded, and mixed the album. Forbidden was panned by critics upon its release. AllMusic 's Bradley Torreano gave the album only one and a half stars, remarking that "with boring songs, awful production, and uninspired performances, this is easily avoidable for all but the most enthusiastic fan". Black Sabbath - Forbidden also stated that he considered it a "sad state of affairs" given the band's long history.
Band members have since spoken about their mixed opinions of the album. Vocalist Tony Martin made known his feelings in an interview in Julyduring which he stated: "Well, Forbidden is I want to say 'crap', but it's actually not".
He added that he thought the songs worked in rehearsals, but other factors, such as rumours of a reunion of the original Black Sabbath line-up and the record company wanting to "take [the album] and see what Ice-T wanted to do", gave the album Black Sabbath - Forbidden "distinct ill feeling". Martin also maintained that he never believed a " Run-D. There's always certain bands that get a great reaction and Black Sabbath is always one of them. He elaborated by saying, "We brought in Ernie C to do production, which was a bit difficult really, because I had to leave him to it… One of the problems was we weren't all Black Sabbath - Forbidden at the same time, when we were writing it.
Cozy and Neil were still contracted to do other stuff, so it ended up with just Tony Martin, Geoff Nicholls and myself just jamming around and putting ideas down. It all came together very quickly and we didn't have time to reflect: make sure it was the right songs and the right way of doing it.
