3 stars Much derided for their satanic lyrics & music and much criticized for sounding like Black Sabbath, the stupid and mindless British Weekly (NME & MM ) press hit on this band even more than on B S . Once again they were completely wrong, as yes , the satanic lyrics are laughable and subject to ridicule (Welcome To The Sabbath is really silly but this was no spoof) as most of those band who spread out their so called religious beliefs on wax. As for the music , this does not sound like BS at all : Although the debut and Paranoid from BS have every right to be highly regarded by all frog fans , this is not really the case from Reality on as they will do straight hard rock, forgetting about musical lyricism . For Black Widow , the music on this debut is more prog than all 20 B S albums linked together except for thir first two. The music on this album is hardly dark or gothic, itis quite happy and cheery, brass-laden affair with much good feelings . This is why maybe those Satanic lyrics are really out of place here. This album looses one star solely on that point : especially their Welcome to the Sabbath ruins the rest of the album.
