Number 826 - Black Sabbath
Number 826 Black Sabbath "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" (1973) .
"The gates of life have closed on you"
Screams Ozzy coherently (gasp). In those days lyrics meant something, music could be by the way of guitars, bass and drums (not an old Yamaha keyboard synth beats like todays music where bugger all know how to even play a tambourine today) music in those days were just that, real music.
"With 1973's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (their fifth masterpiece in four years), Black Sabbath made a concerted effort to raise their creative stakes and dispensed unprecedented attention to the album's production, arrangements, and even the cover artwork. While faithful to the band's signature compositional style and sound, brilliant songs such as the title track, "A National Acrobat," and "Killing Yourself to Live" also displayed a newfound sense of finesse and maturity. The introduction of keyboards and synthesizers, on the other hand, meets with mixed results. Erstwhile Yes keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman makes a positive contribution to "Sabbra Cadabra," but "Who Are You" definitely suffers from synth overkill. Still, "Spiral Architect" benefits from its tasteful background orchestration, and the gentle "Fluff" is the first truly memorable solo instrumental from guitarist Tony Iommi, whose previous attempts often seemed pointless and haphazard. Simply put, this album is essential to any heavy metal collection"
