Could "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" be the group's finest track? It's hard to decide, but it is certainly one of the greatest rock riffs/songs ever written. It even sounded great when the Cardigans covered it (omitting the cry "You bastards!" from the lyrics of course!)
The double guitar tracks in "A National Acrobat" are fantastic and I can't listen to Slayer without calling them to mind. "Fluff" is the by now standard instrumental track, whilst "Sabbra Cadabra" is a fast and lively affair, unlike the slow synth-background of "Who Are You?".
"Killing Yourself to Live" is a track whose lyrics are more relevant to the Ireland I subsist in today than at any other time. "Looking for Today" is a good track, and alongside tracks on the albums of most other groups would be the gem. It's one of the less interesting tracks on this album, not that it's bad - it's just not as brilliant as the others. The same can't be said for "Spiral Architect", which hooks you in lyrically and muscially. A fitting finale to a brilliant rock album.
