Seeing as it's Friday 13th and 45 years to the day that Black Sabbath unleashed their debut on the world, which was the high point from that album?

Man, what a total kick-ass album start to finish. My favourite, well, all tracks are marvellous, maybe Evil Woman.......or Warning (funnily enough, their covers) - The Wizard then. Just an all-round phenomenal release.

The title track is the most stunning piece of heavy metal music ever created, but I'll go with the Wizard for the purposes of this poll.

Nice album indeed for me too, still don't know Warning and Sleeping Village, enjoy pretty much Behind The Wall Of Sleep. I would vote as well for NIB,  but I easily prefer the version of NIB sung by Dio in the Live Evil show, outstanding live album btw.

I'm not sure I know where Sleeping Village ends and Warning begins, but I'm guessing Sleeping Village is the acoustic thing and Warning is the electric song with vocals and the endless guitar solo.  I'm going with Warning for the vocal section - that's a great song.  I'm less thrilled about the solo but it's still good I suppose.

I really wanted to vote for N.I.B. because there's no votes for it. But my heart only goes for the title track.

There had never been such a thrilling use of the dissonant tritone in rock music prior to the Sabs title track on their debut.

Suppose I'd have to go for the title track - the definitive heavy metal song. Love the second half of it especially, but they're all great songs.
