The lords of this world...

Genre: heavy metal

Yest another classic album by Black Sabbath, "Master of Reality" is not as heavy as the previous two albums, but it has a much dirtier sound and contains much more straightforward songs - still there is a certain darkness to it all.

Notable tracks are the opening track "Sweet Leaf" with its easily recognized main riff. "After Forever" is perhaps not as well known, but it contains a string of really nice metal guitar riff, each of which almost is a representative of its own present-day metal subgenre. "Children of the Grave" and the heavier "Lord of this World" and "Solitude" are among my favorite rock tunes, both of which, while quite different from each other, display the same darkness and all of them contain a plethora of engaging heavy guitar riffs.

This is yet another Black Sabbath album that should be part of any metal record collection.
