5 stars 10/10

Incredible, mind-blowing, powerful, potent but also sorrowed by a very personal and avant- garde dark atmosphere surround masterpiece debut album for this unrepeatable 4-piece combo, and in part inventors of heavy metal.

Hard, heavy rock had never sounded so dense, obscure and marvelously intriguing 'till Sabbath put out this.

Besides the merit of introducing darkness and -why not- fear to metal, they both precisely and extremely loud and strongly mold progressive blues-rock bases as they pleased, creating a totally new sound and interpretation.

No particular tracks to over point here, every single one is a gem, from beginning to end.

An essential album for everyone who's interested in rock evolution and its greatness.
