Prog Reviewer
4 stars "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" is one of the strongest albums by Black Sabbath, and notably one of their most progressive. Heavy riffs and soothing passages ensue.

This album contains the powerful riffs that Black Sabbath is known for, but also includes some beautiful acoustic strumming, and the title track contains one of the heaviest Black Sabbath moments that I can think of (almost like a proto-death metal riff). The songwriting on this albums is much better than anything they had done before and it really stands out. Also, Iommi's guitar tone often doesn't seem as dark as it did on previous releases, opting for a more metal twang that wouldn't sound out of place on a Led Zeppelin album. Every song on this album has at least one infectious groove or melody, and there are frequent changes in the songs that really strengthen the album as being progressive.

Highly recommended for fans of Black Sabbath or the more progressive side of accessible music.
