8. Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973)
It's not teh Paranoid, but that has a logical explanation: I like to go against teh grain.
This album shows some "other" influences, (Looking For Today, Who Are You) which would only be explored further on their next album, the underrated Sabotage (1975).
So in that case, you COULD say that it's not good, because it's not always hard metal anymore. Wrong: with the exception for Who Are You, this album is as intense as you expect from this band: the titletrack grabs you with a killer riff (duh) and is easily one of their best songs, why they didn't play it much live is a mystery to me.
Even the piano & keyboards on Sabbra Cadabra fit like a glove, nice percussion too.
All in all, this album made me a lifelong Sabbath-fan.
Favourite track: Killing Yourself To Live.
