4 stars Foprth album by this legend and what an album, great, doomy, smooth all Sabbath's ingredients are here on this 1972 release - Vol 4. In the same vein with the predecesor Master of reality, delivering some classics like Cornucopia, Under the Sun / Every Day Comes and Goes (the best track from the album, absolute a killer song) and the smooth Laguna Sunrise. Even this album is almost more than half heavy has some prog leanings specially on the opening track Wheels of Confusion / The Straightener, the rest of the pieces are mixt between hevy riffs and mellow arangements. Every musician shines here, among the best Sabbath albums ever, and my second best from the '70's of them, after Master of reality. So a big 4 for this stunning album, but not quite a masterpiece.
