BLACK SABBATH Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

Album · 1973 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Ah, we have come to "the album" of Sabbath for me.If you were to ask me or talk to me about Black Sabbath and my favorite from theirs I would instantly tell you "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" without hesitation.There is just something about this one that I love and I don't know what it is,ha.In my opinion, when it comes to Black Sabbath it does not get much better than Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and what an album it is.Released in 1973, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath contained some of the most daring experiments from Sabbath(like adding synthesizers and making a really peaceful and soothing instrumental in Fluff) yet as well as some of the heaviest sh%% that they have done(of course).They even had a guest appearance from Prog Rock legend Rick Wakeman(of Yes fame) on the album.Now for the goodies(the music)"Why do I love it?" Let me illustrate it for you as best as I can.First, the music on here is probably their most progressive in nature(aside from probably Sabotage)and I love Prog and experimentation and Sabbath hits it really good on here in my opinion.There is also a good share of melody on here too(Ozzy does a fantastic job on vocals as well).Second, the lyrics are just some of the best that Sabbath has done(I love the phrasing on Spiral Architect as it truly gives me chills)tackling deep subject matter such as questioning religion and God(Who Are You?) and other overall dark matters.I have made this review longer than others(not on purpose though I just had to get this one off my chest).Yet again, Sabbath comes up with another classic!!

BLACK SABBATH Vol 4

Album · 1972 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
With Vol. 4, Sabbath made somewhat of a change(but a welcomed one for me).There is some piano work(Changes) on here(the likes of which was not really used previously) as well a weird guitar experiment instrumental from Tony(Fx).Of course, we still also had the rockers(Wheels of Confusion, Tomorrow's Dream, Supernaut and others).Tony really came up with some really great riffs on this(The Riff Master, enough said).These songs are as infectious as the previous ones(probably even more so in my opinion).Apparently this album(here on MMA)seems to not get enough love with its 3.95 rating(or something like that,I think personally think that this deserves a 4 star rating but that's me being picky and somewhat selfish) but I happen to think that this was probably Sabbath's best and most diverse release to this point. Yet again another Classic Sabbath album. Even though this album is not really considered to be an essential release by some people. I happen to think that this album is every bit essential as their previous albums!!!I like it very much. Highly recommended in my opinion

BLACK SABBATH Master Of Reality

Album · 1971 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
With Master of Reality, Black Sabbath continued along the likes of very Heavy rock music. Yet again, on this album we get some more classic riffs from Geezer and Tony(listen to After Forever, Lord of This World and Into the Void, that is some heavy sh##). Also, with this album Black Sabbath continued their building legacy and influence which inspired many more Heavy Metal artists to come. To me, this(Master of Reality) continues the string of Classic Sabbath albums which eventually came to an end with Sabotage(but that's a different story and review).What else do I have to say about this album. This is Classic Sabbath and Classic Heavy Metal!! Another essential release

BLACK SABBATH Paranoid

Album · 1970 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
This album is essential to all Heavy Metal collections as it has some of the best songs and most well-known songs that there is in Heavy Metal. We go from War Pigs to Paranoid to Iron Man to Fairies Wear Boots all in a matter of less than 50 minutes. The Sabbath was able to make some really rocking tunes on here with a somewhat bluesy, jazzy twist to it. The likes of which was not heard from before in music. Obviously, this album is one of the most best and most influential that there is Metal history so I won't ramble on like I did on the first album.I happen to think that this album is one of the most essential Heavy Metal albums that there is. Essential!!

DREAM THEATER Metropolis, Part 2: Scenes From a Memory

Album · 1999 · Progressive Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Guitar wankery at its worst. First off,the guitar player, Mr. Petrucci is a very skilled player but he just makes it seem like a joke on this album. I wish he had the balls to really dig deep to make something truly innovative and worthwhile. Second, The song writing is terrible. The storyline is not engaging at all as it is too repetitive(we get it, someone died and its a tragedy, geesh how many times do you have to repeat that).I happen to think that it is one of the most overrated albums that there is Metal and Prog.The music on here is obviously played by very capable and competent musicians but they turn this into a pure cheesefest. What in the world is Ruddess doing on Beyond This Life(wtf???).That song alone really makes me really not like this album.I couldn't really finish it all without wanting to stop it already. Guitar and instrument wankery at its worst
