The conversation is lacking lately. Everyone likes Black Sabbath. What's yr favorite Sabbath & why? Ozzy era only.

Mine is Volume 4. Supernaut, Snowblind, Wheels Of Confusion are all tops. The only thing that I don't like about this record is that F/X could've had a better title. Even Changes, one of my least favorite Sabbath songs, sounds good in the context of the record.

Your turn.

We Sold Our Souls For Rock & Roll

A dubbed cassette of this album made the rounds when I was in the 6th grade, & turned me on to a whole other world beyond what was on the radio. I know it's basically a greatest hits album, but they're all winners. I listened to this tape so much that it makes the albums that the songs were pulled from seem out of sequence.

Coincidentally, I dusted off my Technical Ecstasy LP the other day and gave it a whirl for shits and giggles (I hadn’t listened to this record in at least 12 years). God, it’s absolutely horrible. Even worse than Never Say Die, if that’s even possible ("Joooooohhny Blade!").



techincal ecstasy & never say die! should come packaged with a limited edition mirror/razorblade set.

Paranoid. Tiger Yang hit the nail on the head about side 2.

I practically wore the grooves on that record through to the other side when I was a kid.

Hand Of Doom kicks ass because it's so quiet at the beginning and makes you turn up the volume, then when it finally kicks in, it's REALLY LOUD. I think it might be one of the first rock songs to have that big of a dynamic change mid song.

the first 6 ALL have songs that blow my mind, and ALL have songs that bore the pants off me. so it's really hard for me to pick a "best"

but m.o.r. has a special spot in my heart. as a kid, i never smoked dope at all. i was the teen who drove all my stoner friends around. in fact, i did no drugs til i dropped a butt-ton of acid on my 19th birthday.

when i was 23, i was living with a stripper and we'd just taken some ecstasy (mmmm...early 90's X!!!) and while her's was working like gangbusters, my hit was a dud. so she told me "listen, i got tipped a joint at work today, and i know that pot sometimes will help acid to kick in a little faster. do you want to try smoking the joint to see if it'll help your X?"

i'd never even smoked a cigarette, never wanted to "smoke" anything, but i wasn't about to miss out on this ecstasy if i could help it. so i smoked the whole joint alone. the x never did kick in.

but the next day i went out and bought a bag, a bowl, and black sabbath's master of reality.
i've been a daily stoner since . . .

Oh holy crap here we go. My Favoritests bandz evarr

I voted for Vol.4, because I feel as though this album would mock the face of god and stop the time space continium, if not for the mega-crappy ballad that shall go unamed. F/X is a minute of retardation too, (Holy Shit! Pick Scrapes and Delay! Wow!) Other than that, it is rock perfection.

Sabotage is great as well. It has an icy, weird, coming down off of a lot of drugs vibe. "hole in the sky", "symptom of the universe", "meglomania", and "the writ" are all great tracks.

The three first albums are classics as well. I love the debut, especially the way it sounds, Paranoid and Master of Ravioli will probably battle for first place in this poll for obvious reasons. But WTF is up with the cover of "Paranoid"? I never understood it.
They are both spectacular records. I like the way Master is mixed, the only high end that is there is tape hiss. And the overdubbed rototoms on "children of the grave" are awesome! And Pitbulls is totally right, the track "After Forever" is totally christian rock.

I also like Technical Ecstasy. It has some great tracks. "Rock N Roll Doctor", "Gypsy", and "Dirty Women", are all great tunes. My friends used to hide this tape from me so they didn't have to hear it. You could say it's a guilty pleasure of mine. "Its Alright" is why you don't let drummers do too much stuff. It is a pile off poopoo.

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is awesome, especially the sweet cover art. It sure as hell beats the uber-awesomeness of the Saboatge cover, where Bill Ward is wearing those sweet pants. I think Soundgarden based their whole carrer off of the bridge to "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath". "Who are you" is a sweet coked up synth ballad.

"never say die" is nothing to write home about. Its sounds poopy and is poopy. But I'll take it over a lot of other things.

Alright Im done I love Slack Babbath 4evar.

funny, i JUST read this last night . . .

Artwork

The album was originally titled War Pigs, but allegedly the record company changed it to Paranoid, fearing backlash from supporters of the ongoing Vietnam War. At the time, the band felt that the song was lighter, with the potential to become a single. However, the band's visual interpretation of a "war pig" was still featured on the cover; a distorted, eerie photograph of a man with sword and shield jumping out from behind a tree. This image confused many of the band's fans, who thought that the image did not resemble the album title to any extent.

The original UK vinyl release was in a gatefold sleeve. The inner of the gatefold had a black and white photo of the band, posed outdoors on a grassy hill, and was their first appearance on album artwork. To spread the original picture over the gatefold, Ozzy Osbourne was separated from the other members of the band and a section of the grass was copied and dropped into the gap. This is only readily apparent if one compares it with the original photograph.

I'm where I'm at today because of Ozzy's Blizzard of Oz album. I only listened to AM pop radio in the late '70s but when Ashley Ryder moved to town and told us about this guy that her older sister listened to, all the boys went out and bought Blizzard of Oz just so we could have something to talk to Ashley about.

I never really got into Sabbath until just a few years ago although I think I owned all the Ozzy-era cassettes thanks to a Gold Circle going out of business sale. I've recently been going back and listening to them all and I'm currently enthralled with Vol. 4, even "Changes".

Bad user experience alert: Did you ever hear the Cardigan's cover of "Changes"? They actually do a really great job of making it almost an alt.country sounding song. See for yourself here.

My vote is Paranoid.

Heaven & Hell - The Devil You Know

This CD is really good if old Sabbath fans are looking for something newer.

I voted Sabotage. Why? Because it is bad ass from front to back. Even the the weakest track (Am I Going Insane) is fucking awesome. Mainly because the laughter in the end. The Writ crushes all other metal songs.

The first three are as perfect as records get. The next three aren't far behind.

MOR is their most innovative.
Paranoid is their most accessible.
S/T is probably my favorite.

But Vol. 4 has "Supernaut" which I feel is Sabbath firing on all cylinders.

Fuck yes. Supernaut is easily my favorite Sabbath song. That breakdown in the middle fucking kills me.

I love the second side, but I can't take War Pigs or Iron Man anymore. Surprisingly I never got burnt out on Paranoid.

I know what you mean... when you listen to any record/tape CD for so long it's quirks become the norm. I listened to my Paranoid album a LOT in like 7th grade. there were 2 pretty big skips in War Pigs. Now, whenever I'm somewhere and hear that song, I totally am shocked when the song doesn't skip where it should!

So, although I love almost all Sabbath, I voted Paranoid because I listened to it so much. Tiger Yang is right, Side 2 FTW. Hand of Doom = one of the best drum licks in history.



Also, @ Ned: Blizzard of Ozz ROOLZ

I HAD to go with Vol 4. I've got the "Castle Remaster" of it. It fricken thunders out of my speakers but has a little more bite than Masters. I don't even mind some of the BS tracks on there. Most of them are just stretched out intros that got their own track title because the band found out they get paid more if there were more songs. They really aren't meant to stand as compositions on their own. But hell Under The Sun and Supernaut.

A close second for me is Masters, It's where Tony hit on the C# tuning that allowed for serious bad ass ownage after that. Into The Void might be the heaviest riff ever.

My third is probably actually Sabotage, Symptom of The Universe is just SO bad ass. My first band when I was 15 used to do an earth shattering (to us)/pitiful (to everybody else) version of that one.

BTW All Moving Parts Stand Still totaly redeems Technical Ecstacy.
