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.

Black Sabbath (1970.) Black Sabbath's first album.
In the late sixties, rock artists were beginning to discover a new style of music - heavy metal. Unfortunately, like rock and roll as a whole, metal was resented by many at first. Fortunately, thanks to four young lads from Birmingham, the style would be popularized. Though originally a blues rock cover band, the quartet of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward would start a rock and roll revolution. They changed their name to Black Sabbath, after a horror film they saw an ad for one day, and began shelling out classic hard rock and heavy metal. How does the band's debut album measure up? Read on, and you shall see.
The first thing I need to state is that the sound quality isn't as good on this album as it would be on future Black Sabbath albums (this is due to the conditions under which it was recorded. The band kicks things off with Black Sabbath (the song.) This is very slow, gloomy, and heavy material - the PERFECT way to start a quintessential heavy metal album. Probably the most popular track to emerge from this release was the second track - The Wizard. This is hard rock, but Ozzy plays the harmonica and adds a nice, bluesy sound. It's my favorite song on the album, too. Behind The Wall Of Sleep and N.I.B. (that's short for Nativity In Black) are solid rockers that have more than stood the nearly thirty-five year test of time. The final tracks on the album are nothing special (they seem like fillers compared to the other tracks), hence the rating of only four stars for the album, but they are still good. And on this import version of the album, the tracks aren't fused together as ultra-long medleys - you can skip right to what you want to listen to!
