I always enjoyed the Classic Albums DVD series. Now that enjoyment as been taken to the next level with this released of the story of the making of Paranoid. I would like write about it in every specific detail possible so much it's awesome, but that would be wrong to spoil the great stories you will hear if you buy (& buy you should) this DVD. Even the more seasoned Sabbath fans will learn something new from that era when the band was un-aware that they were working on an album that would change the world forever. Stories from the band members themselves, Tony, Ozzy, Geezer & Bill (Well duh!), we hear about where they got the ideas for songs like "Iron Man" & "Fairies Wear Boots", which isn't from drugs as that overly-exaggerated myth as being going on for decades. Tony even shows how he played some of the songs. Like I said I don't want to say too much about this DVD as every Metal fan in the world should own it since it explains the creation of an album that would define what would be known as Heavy Metal.

If you are a fan of riff driven, heavy rock, it is hard to find much better than Sabbath. Great to see Geezer, Bill and Tony talking about the era. As entertaining as Ozzy can be, it is not always that easy to follow is train of thought.
