Master of Reality. It might be an unpopular opinion but to me only the first 3 Sabbath albums are "classics". The following 3 all have some mediocre songs even though they're really strong albums.

I think for the most part the first six are classics and equally as strong as the other. I just perfer those two. Some type of reunion between Ozzy, Tony, and Geezer atleast needs to happpen even if they could not get Bill. Its the perfect time and the intrest would be HUGE.

Iron Man actually is an amazing song. Paranoid is strong although not as good as the majority of people make it out to be.

You know, (pposting drunk as fuuuuuuuuuuuck right now)

the truth is, as much as we'd like to be "jholier than thou" and say its sabotage, the truth is, Paranoid has a higher signla to noise ration than sabotage.


So yea. the correct answer is paranpid.

[ Though honestly, there isn't a single mislplaced note on the first album]

get the first six. That's what you need to know.

You guys are nuts with the Master of Reality shit, I've always thought that as an album it's one of the worst of the first six. It's got some great songs on it (three to be exact) but it just doesn't seem complete to me. The best Ozzy era Sabbath has got to be Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

What the hell are you smoking? Sabotage dosn't come close to the first 3 albums.

If I had to pick one I would go with Master of Reality, although Vol. 4 is extremely close.

Master of Reality
Black Sabbath

Sabotage
Vol.4
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

I'd say put BSB equal to or above Paranoid and you're set.

My ranking would probably be:

Master of Reality
Vol. 4
Black Sabbath
Paranoid
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Sabotage
Never Say Die!
Technical Ectasy

The first five are absolutely flawless to me though.

I dunno man SBS has the 2 songs(before Technical Ecstasy) that I dislike the most outa the Ozzy era catalogue; Who Are You? and Looking For Today.

The problem I often have with the Ozzy era Sabbath album is there's always one song that spoils it.

Black Sabbath - Evil Woman
Paranoid - Planet Caravan (that's right, and fuck you)
Master of Reality - no bad tracks, there just aren't enough of them
Vol. 4 - FX (although several of the rest simply aren't up to the standard of most)
Sabbath Blood Sabbath - Who Are You?
Sabotage - Am I Going Insane (Radio)
Technical Ecstasy - Most of them, let's be honest
Never Say Die - Swinging The Chain (and arguably the previous three)

Which is why Master of Reality always comes top for me because it may be lacking in terms of the number of great tracks - they're all great, there should just be more of them, which is why if the question is extended to the whole Sabbath catalogue it struggles for a place in my top 5 - it's the only one with a track I don't hate.

Not only does it suck, Pantera didn't make it any better (just to make sure I've suitably accounted for everyone who loves that song ;)).

Evil Woman isn't actually part of the first album, so you can't really count it against the album.

ravenheart
02-21-2011, 01:26 AM
I can and do :finger:

In the UK, where it was released first, 'Evil Woman' was on the album. It's 'Wicked World' that's the bonus track here.

OK Evil Womans, kinda lame but its sooooo damn catchy, also always loved the solo section.

That's better than the Dio Sabbath releases, where there is always two songs that spoil it.

Heaven & Hell = Walk Away, Wishing Well
The Mob Rules = Country Girl, E5150
Dehumanizer = Time Machine, Time Machine (Waynes World version)

Bah, you crazy. Wishing Well, Country Girl and Time Machine are perfectly good songs. In fact, Time Machine is one of my favourites off of Dehumanizer. If I were to pick a baddie off that album it'd have to be Master of Insanity.

Master is better than Time Machine even though both are awesome. Country Girl and E5150 are really good tunes too.

All wrong. (except E5150 because all intro tracks are lame)

I'm surprised that you've made it this far in life without realizing that people give eachother shit. Especially dudes. Sometimes, the two people giving eachother shit don't really think anything of it, and don't get angry. Most of the time though, there always is that one guy who takes some shit seriously, and ruins all the fun.

What I'm trying to say is, don't be that guy.
