1973 album pressed on 180 gram vinyl with Direct Metal Mastering. Earmark. 2005.
As if their dark lyrics and wall-of-sludge sound didn't already have an epic sweep, Black Sabbath braved an even more ambitious approach on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, adding synthesizers and even strings to tracks such as "Who Are You?" and "Spiral Architect." But even without them, the Sabbath classics "Killing Yourself to Live," "National Acrobat," "Looking for Today," and the title track pack a thunderous sonic wallop. "Fluff," a bit of ponderous musing on acoustic guitar and keyboards, adds variety to the disc but brings the headbanging pleasure of the rest of the album to a screeching halt. Beyond that misstep, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is as slow and deliberate as a lava flow, and just as powerful. --Daniel Durchholz

The band experimented with synthesers on "Who Are You?" they used an orchestra on "Spiral Architect" but it doesn't mean that there isn't any heavy Sabbath on it. In fact the album has one of their heaviest and best known songs with the title-track. Because a band experiments it doesn't mean they're selling-out or they suck, it certainly isn't the case with Black Sabbath, this album is one of their best. While some may say that this album isn't good or is a sell-out I disagree, I think it's a very strong album with some really great songs that every fan should like. I understand the band is known for the doom sound and all, after all I own and love those albums but I think at that point they needed something new. They did, and that's great the orchestra parts sound really good and create an ambiance without being overused and at times sounds brilliant and adds to the music.
And now for the songs. The title track is a monster, by far one of their heaviest songs and I can't imagine something this heavy for 1973! An absolute favourite and when Ozzy could do it, the end of the song was something epic. It's quite an album opener.Read more ›
"Feel so good I feel so fine,
Love that little lady always on my mind
She gives me lovin' ev'ry night and day
Never gonna leave her, never goin' away"
After two minutes of this, the song suddenly slows down and Rick Wakeman (yes---THE Rick Wakeman of Yes) interjects some beautiful, lilting synthesizers into the mix as Ozzy's singing becomes weirder (and is also fed more & more through a voice synthesizer), but it just fits in perfectly with the music. The six-minute "Sabbra Cadabra" then speeds up again, with piano thrown on top of it all, and finishes so memorably. What a great song!Read more ›
