5.0 out of 5 stars GOD has arrived... and he is Black Sabbath! Oct. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Man, what an album. With heavy riffs, soft intrumentals and a funny bonus track, anyone can enjoy this album
Hole in the sky - A good opening for an album. It's not super heavy or really light. 5/5
Don't Start (Too Late) - I love it! Though it is short and I don't get into acoustics, it's geat to play then shock people with Symptom of the Universe next 3/5
Symptom of the Universe - A classic. Probably one of the fastest Sabbath songs and the vocals are done with a small echo, making it seem unreal. 5/5
Megalomania - The first of two long, varied rants about destruction, law and fear. It clocks in at 9 minutes of pure Sabbath music! 4/5
Thrill of it all - A very trippy song. Ozzy is more screaming than singing and sounds calm and unrushed. -4/5
Superztar - I'll be honest, when I first heard the title of this song, I thought it would be about rock stardom, groupies etc. What I got was a very weird instrumental, complete with a good riff and a choir (!?!) The failing point of the album. -2/5
Am I Going Insane (Radio) - A good song about losing your mind. A lighter sound than other songs, but still good. -4/5
The Writ - The way I feel is the way I am
I wish I'd walked before I started to run to you
Just to you. I know most people say Symptom of the Universe is the best song on the album, but I prefer this one. Ozzy's tone, the riff. It is the second and last big rant on this album, this one about the Writs. You can feel Ozzy's anger and emotions. 7/5
Blow on a Jug - Weird, and it deserves a grammy. 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars My personal fave Sabbath album June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Black Sabbath's sixth album Sabotage was released in September of 1975 here in the US. The album was seen by some as the band's last great hurrah while some argue that Technical Ecstacy was the band's last great album and vice versa. Sabotage was recorded in early 1975 in various studios in England and was seen by some as a rival to Queen's 1975 breakthrough A Night at the Opera for its multitracking and arrangements and what not. Considering all the legal difficulties they were having at the time with the independent label this album was issued on in the UK(it was on a major label Warner Bros here in the US), the album proved that great art can come from great turmoil. Sabotage picks up where the predecessor Sabbath Bloody Sabbath left off. Ozzy Osbourne's impassioned screams and Tony Iommi's guitar playing plus Geezer Butler and Bill Ward's bass and drumming work respectively are at the top of their game. The kick ass opener Hole in the Sky is one of the best opening tracks ever. The song stops and goes into a brief acoustic interlude of Dont Stop(Too Late) goes straight into the superb Symptom of the Universe. The nearly 10 minute epic Megalomania closed the first half on a grand note. The Thrill of it All starts the second half and is a great warmup for the rest of the album. Supertzar is a great instrumental combining metal with opera and was used as entrance music for many Sabbath tours to come. The weird Am I Going Insane(Radio) is next and the album concludes with the awesome epic The Writ. When the song ends on the original Warner Bros lp/cassette and on the new reissue on the Black Box, there is a 30 second silly ditty called Blow on a Jug which is a silly way to end the album. This was the band's last US Top 30 album until 1980's Heaven and Hell and was another Gold seller for the band. This album is HUGELY recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - Excellent album May 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sabotage (1975.) Black Sabbath's sixth album.
Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward, better known as Black Sabbath, are easily one of the greatest classic hard rock bands of all time. By the time the mid seventies had rolled around, the band shifted its sound in a more progressive/meaningful direction. Although not many fans liked this experimental trip, most of them did. And in 1975 the band released Sabotage, their sixth album. On this album, the band attempts to recapture their earlier, heavier sound, while at the same time continuing to pull off some musical experimentation. Read on for my review.
The first song on this album, Hole In The Sky, is reason enough to purchase this album. It's my all-time favorite Ozzy-era Black Sabbath tune. No other song they do rocks like this one. Following it you get the acoustic instrumental, Don't Stop Too Late. It was obvious by this time period that Tony Iommi had newfound confidence in his ability to play acoustic stuff - he'd proven the point tirelessly on some of their more recent albums. Next up is another hard rock masterpiece, Symptom Of The Universe. Many a Black Sabbath fan has been known to call this little masterpiece his favorite Black Sabbath song. Who can blame those people? This song rocks hard and rocks right. But, the excellence doesn't stop there. Supertzar, an instrumental track with a full-blown choir, is equally excellent. The song is very different than what you'd expect from Sabbath, but it rocks nonetheless. Megalomania is another one of many great tracks you'll get on this album. Why didn't it become as popular as some of the band's big hits? Through and through, Sabotage flat out rules.
THE TEXT IN THIS PARAGRAPH REFERS EXCLUSIVELY TO THE WARNER BROS. AMERICAN REISSUE OF THE ALBUM. Warner Bros.
