Digitally remastered edition of this classic 1975 album from the veteran Heavy Metal maestros. Black Sabbath's sixth studio album gained another favorable review from Rolling Stone magazine who stated "Sabotage is not only Black Sabbath's best record since Paranoid, it might be their best ever". The album is evidence that the band still weren't afraid of musical experimentation and as such, is their most varied and complex production of their formative period. With powerful signature tracks such as `Symptom Of The Universe' and `Hole In The Sky' which became firm fan favourites, Sabotage would reach the Top 20 in the U.K. and also number 28 in the U.S. This remastered and sumptuous gatefold digipak edition of the album boasts comprehensive story of the album sleeve-notes by renowned Rock critic Jerry Ewing and a plethora of rare and previously unseen photographs and items of memorabilia. Sanctuary. 2009.

Top Customer Reviews
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
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.
