4 stars Excellent stuff is Sabotage. Just when people reckoned BS had reached their peak ( well they had , kind of) they released this phenomenal follow up to Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. This album has, as one reviewer aptly references, a VERY metal flavour. More metal than any other album, maybe, but still for all the stress internally within the band they again managed to produce some of their finest work.' Hole In The Sky' is a solid opener for Sabotage.My personal favourite has Ozzy screeching' Sympton of the Universe' in the craziest paranoid voice ever. Vocally Osbourne was at his best on this album.' Megolomania' continues where ' Sympton of the Universe' signs off, angry dark metallic edged angst!!

" Am I going Insane' is also a great manic plea from the band and the album closes with the dynamic ' The Writ'. One other band followed in similar footsteps to BS from a metal underground point of view and that was Judas Priest but their longevity as a true force was much swifter in reaching a climax. A solid four stars for Sabotage. The last epic studio album from them.
