I suggest you try it out (if you can stomach 70s hard rock). Although not necessarily in the premier league of Sabbath songs ("Wheels of Confusion", "Megalomania", "Into the Void" etc.), I find it a terrific opening track. Definitely a prime Black Sabbath offering.


Well, I do like Sabbath (I just haven't heard that album yet), as well as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, and a few others. Though, as far as Sabbath goes, I mostly like better the live version on Reunion than the originals. The extra heaviness really helps the songs.

Fair enough. When it comes to heaviness, I dunno, we have dozens Black Sabbath ripoffs nowadays, but only Sabbath had that early 70s production AND powerful riffs despite guitar amps not suitable to this style of music. But I honestly love Reunion version of "Into the Void"
