4 stars Sabotage is maybe the last good heavy metal album with Ozzy behind the microphone. With this album problems begun to appear in Sabbath's colective, Ozzy begun to feel more like an outsider, and for good reason, Iommi give him some kicks in the butt because he (Ozzy) was unable to do the vocal parts on some pieces, because of drinking problems or drugs addictions . With all this problems the album was released in 1975, and surprisengly is a major succes in Sabbath career. Many considered this album among the best in Sabbath catalogue. The music remains on the same coordonates as on previous one but more heavy , more doomy. Some pieces are real winners like: the opening track Hole in the Sky - the powerfull voice of Ozzy is shown from the first note, Symptom of the Universe - this is the best piece from here and among the best they ever done, very heavy , with some solid doom sound, great riffs and solos made by the main man of the band Tony Iommi, Supertzar - is an excellent instrumental one with grandious choruses, simply amazing tune and Am I Going Insane (Radio) - a bit more mainstrem to cool down the doomy atmosphere from the previouses tracks, again solid and good. All in all a great album, among my fav from Sabbath - Ozzy years, after Master of reality or Vol 4. 4 stars for sure.
