BLACK SABBATH-FIRST ALBUM
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 30/11/2012 18:43:09
Out of all the Black Sabbath Albums of the 70's,I would place this second.I don't like the words Awesome and Heavy Metal because it's none of these.Just a really great album-you will love this if you are into Heavy Jazz Influenced Rock.I have the Vinyl version,this CD version is better.Great songs and fantastic lyrics-mainly written by "Geezer Butler".He was influenced by Denis Wheatley,possibly Hammer Horror Films.There are no bad tracks,although Warning /Sleeping Village are an acquired taste.It is an album that has always been in my collection and is so different from the follow up "Paranoid" which has a funkier sound.Sabotage is the only album to beat this first Masterpiece. You will not be disappointed.

This is the first album i got in the 70's and i still love it today and all the rest of the albums, that Ozzy was singing on. I've got it on vinyl and CD.

best black sabbath album

If you don't like this you're bound to not like the rest of their albums..
with the possible exception of "Paranoid"
This album is awesome, a must buy for fans of older hard rock bands...

the birth of metal.

this is what spawned metal. or, doom metal at least, anyway. the title track is just excellent. people were actually scared of this when it first came out, because it was unlike anything they'd ever heard before. it's also one of the albums you should listen to before you die, through my eyes. if this one cd hadn't been released, God only knows what would have happened to the music scene. however, it's not all metal. "N.I.B", though quite Satanic in subject matter, is a rather bluesy song, with a bass solo introduction, which is rare. also, "The Wizard" is a very unusual song as well, with a Harmonica-driven melody. highly recommended.
