5 stars (Original review from MMA)

People think I'm insane....

Two masterpiece albums within a year? Yes, it is possible and Black sabbath are proof of this. The follow up to their self titled debut is just as much a masterpiece in every way to the debut, except the dumb cover, but that does not make this album bad at all.

This album is the one that really got everyones attention to this crazy new heavy blues band with a taste for the occult.

This album features probably the three most reckognized Sabbath songs ever, and they all deserve the recognition they get. From the almost radio friendly Paranoid, to the devasting beginning of Iron Man, to the rumbling behemoth crawl of Luke's Wall/War Pigs, this is, I dare say, the most influential metal album ever created. Almost every metal band in existence owes something to this band, and this album.

From the drum solo on Rat Salad to the rather creepy Electric Funeral, this album is indispensable for any music collection.

Sheavy | 5/5 |
