Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD deluxe edition of the 1970 debut album from the British Metal legends including a bonus disc containing nine previously unreleased tracks. Black Sabbath, the album, is often regarded as one of the first Heavy Metal full length releases. The album reached #8 on the UK Album Chart. Following its US release in May 1970 by Warner Bros. Records, the album reached #23 on the Billboard 200, where it remained for over a year, selling a million copies. 17 tracks. Sanctuary. 2009.

Some might claim that this 1970 debut is the definitive Black Sabbath record. While the gothic overtones of the opening track, "Black Sabbath" (thunderstorms and foreboding church bells introduce Ozzy Osbourne's howl and Tony Iommi's sludgy guitar), and the raucous defiling of Cream on "N.I.B." were thrilling then (and remain so now), there is too much wanking here to really qualify the collection as the must-have Black Sabbath record. (That prize would have to go to Paranoid.) But the blues-heavy riffs of "The Wizard," the soon-to-be-famous chord-progression stylings on "Wasp," and the grunge-boogie of "Wicked World" allow it to stand as a solid testament to the deep and lasting influence the band has had over the years. --Lorry Fleming --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

I have been a little slow picking up my Sabbath deluxe editions. Finally got this one for Christmas. What can I say? It was worth the wait. The most iconic metal album of all time has been given the deluxe edition treatment, and deservedly so.

First of all, before I talk about the music, this edition just looks beautiful in its digipack. The scariest most haunting album cover of all time is printed crisply on cardboard and it looks amazing. Open it up to find photos of a hippy-dippy looking Black Sabbath, just a bunch of kids. The booklet inside has truly great liner notes and more photos of the young foursome. There is one photo of Oz playing keyboards in the studio -- strange none of his keys show up on this album. I'd love to know the story behind that photo.

Musically, of course this album is incredible. Simple, sparse, raw, and haunting. This is the kind of music that can only be made by four guys psychicly locked-in with each other, knowing what notes are coming next, anticipating them and reacting to them. Bill Ward's drumming is thrifty and wonderful, perfectly off-time and magically working with Geezer Butler's fluidic basslines. Geezer's bass, in turn, is locked in with Iommi's guitar, providing melodic accents while Tony plays the rock solid demonic riffs from hell. Meanwhile, Ozzy is on top of it all, a man possessed, his words ringing loud and powerfully along within the spaces of the songs. This is the kind of album that can only be created by four guys playing live in a room together. Modern bands cannot do this kind of album.

Every song is, of course, a classic, from the opening thunder of "Black Sabbath" to the wallowing solos of "Warning" and the haunting "Sleeping Village". "N.I.B.

Who could have predicted what Black Sabbath would create with their debut album? I don't think the band themselves knew exactly what they created at the time but it became the foundation of their career and of a musical genre. In 1970 this dark, blues-heavy sound on which metal must have been scary to a load of people! It must have been hard to imagine something this heavy back then, it was a sort of rock'n'roll revolution in a way. And what about that album cover? It used to scare me when I was younger and I still get chills to this day when I look at the artwork. For some fans of the ban this is the definitive Black Sabbath album, after all this is where the sound of metal was really developed and when the sound of evil (as it has often been referred to) was born.

Black Sabbath opens with the title track which was the first song the band wrote, ultimately it became their inspiration and they based their sound on this one track. It's an epic song that's freaky, sets the tone for not only the album but the band's whole career. The Wizard is the shortest song here, I love how the harmonica intro and how this heavy, bluesy and distorted riff kicks in right after. It's the shortest song on the album but it's a classic song, simply amazing. N.I.B has perhaps the greatest bass intro to a song ever; it's a highlight for sure. I could go on but these songs are classic and very good in their own way, Sabbath's debut should be memorable for every metalhead.

If you're a big fan I would suggest getting the deluxe edition of Black Sabbath which has an extra disc of unreleased stuff like alternate takes, instrumentals and such . The deluxe edition would be perfect for a hardcore fan.

Yes, you read the subject to this review right. This is the best Black Sabbath album. I didn't used to think this, but when I listened to it again a couple of months ago, I realized how awesome this album really is. The guitar is great, the bass is solid, the drums are furiously played, and Ozzy's vocals are haunting. The album starts with none other than "Black Sabbath". Is there any better way to start off an album than this song? The rain fades in, then the thunder and the distant sound of a bell, and then BOOM! HEAVY METAL IS BORN. The riff itself is very simple, yet so very evil. Our first chance to hear Ozzy is a spooky one to be sure. He sounds like Satan himself in this song. The climax is also one of music's great moments, with that awesome riff and the superb guitar solo by Tony Iommi. The next song is another classic. "The Wizard". Sure, the lyrics are nothing special, but that's not why I listen to Sabbath. The harmonica playing by Ozzy is great in this bluesy-metal song. Bill Ward's drumming is wonderful. You'll be banging your head hard to this one. The next track has four songs on it, which I think was a cool idea. "WASP" is the short rocking intro to "Behind The Wall Of Sleep". Once the intro is over, a really cool riff is played and Ozzy's vocals come in. This song is yet another classic. The middle section is great, with Ozzy saying "Like a body to a corpse" over and over. Bill Ward's drum beat fades out as Geezer Butler's bass solo "Bassically" fades in. Neat effect. The bass solo is very enjoyable, and when it ends, an incredibly distorted bass riff starts "N.I.B." which is one of heavy metal's greatest songs, along with one of heavy metal's greatest riffs. There's not a single part of this song that I don't enjoy.Read more ›
