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!!
