Ranked 241/500 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

The 1970 British heavy metal debut album that became the blueprint of the genre and set the stage for generations of bands that developed in its wake. Features the killer title track along with the classics The Wizard and N.I.B.

Black Sabbath was recorded by the original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward, four childhood friends from the north of England who grew out of the U.K's late 1960s blues/hard rock scene, which also included Led Zeppelin, Cream, Blue Cheer, and other greats. Sabbath's sweeping and masterful metamorphosis away from that tradition spawned heavy metal music, inventing the template for everything that would follow. With crushing rhythms, doomy riffs, haunting songs, and Ozzy's other-worldly vocals, the band conjured a dark, menacing, and resonant sound that forever reverberates.

5-Stars Is For QRP Pressing

Reviewer: audiofan
Rhino is re-issuing (yet again) this title, along with the other 7 albums with the original lineup. Rhino's offical website asks "Are these reissues different from previous Sabbath titles we've released before? No." Keep in mind, however, that only the first four titles are pressed by QRP, and these are worth buying if you don't own mint or near-mint copies of the original 70's - era LPs, or have not purchased the previous Rhino reissues. The pressing quality is typically superb for the QRP releases. After those first four titles, I can only speak for "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and "Sabotage", both of which suffered from surface noise (a crackling sound, tic's, and pops) on several tracks of both LPs. So there you go. Can't help but wonder why Rhino didn't use QRP on all titles? The 2012 remaster, BTW, is subtly different than the Warner's originals - if, like me, you grew up listening to these iconic LPs, you may wish they'd leave well enough alone.
