5 stars This debut album by Black Sabbath titled Black Sabbath is not a progressive album, but it has some progressive elements. What they did was take jazz, blues and hard rock to make something that nobody had ever heard before and make one of the most influential albums and become one of the most influential bands across Metal, Hard Rock and Progressive Rock Genres.

Black Sabbath, The title track and one of the best tracks on the album. The riffs in the song are incredible. The mood this song creates is fantastic and really prepares you for the rest of the album. This song really picks up at 4.34, moving into a faster tempo and then finishes with a bang. (10/10)

The Wizard, Starts with some very nice harmonica playing by Ozzy. Its a very bluesy / hard rock song. I also really enjoy the drum fills in this song.(8/10)

Wasp/Behind the wall of sleep/Bassicaly/N.I.B, This song is my favourite song on the album. It has a very cool bass solo to kick off N.I.B. The riffs in this song blow me away, the music is just awesome, its Iommi, Butler and Ward at there best.(10/10)

Wicked World, This song is just another great rock song with jazzy influences mainly on the drums. I really enjoy this song, i love the flat sounding bass under the riff, and the soft guitar part that leads into the solo.(9/10)

A Bit of Finger/Sleeping Village/Warning, The longest song on the album lasting 14.32 minutes long. This song has many great musical passeges and has loads of Iommi solo's, and as like the rest of the album the bass and drum work is great.(9/10)

This is just a awesome album and sould be enjoyed by all. 5 stars
