3 stars Three and a half stars is as good as it gets on this second outing from Black Sabbath. A gut wrenching incisive collective of exposed raw nerves that creates Paranoid. Argued by some quarters as the best Black Sabbth with the established ubiquitous four piece line up. It is a fine piece of studio material with healthy dollops of the sneering ' War Pigs', the drug induced title track and the demonic ' Iron Man'. And that excludes the emphatic epic ' Hand of Doom'. The artists were beginning to truly flourish on this second album and the maturation process was well under way. Highly recommended to most metal/prog enthusiasts, Paranoid is a must have solid piece of work. Oh, and their second studio album inside a year, not half bad either!!!
