I've just listened all the way through the gargantuan slab of molten hot metal that is Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and felt impelled to highlight it.

The first 4 Sabs LPs + Sabotage + the first 2 with Dio tend to get the most critical acclaim, and rightly so. But Sabbath Bloody Sabbath needs to be rapidly hoisted up there too - it's a colossal beast!!!

Most of these tracks boast a series of killer riffs welded together. Each is utterly compelling in its own right. Iommi is like a fire breathing dragon with each riff emerging, again and again, out of the previous one, burning its way through your brain.

Certainly Tony Iommi is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the heavy metal guitar riff - he's rarely ever failed throughout his career IMO. Every riff here could battle its way easily to the top of the all time best lists. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath itself, has a sound that immediately shocks you to attention - Iommi's 2nd best one after Symptom IMO.

One day the critics will recognise the work of Iommi and Sabbath, not only as definitive heavy metal, but also as a bona fide artform. The way Tony churns out riff after riff so eloquently describes the factory production lines of industrial Birmingham. Perhaps he is the LS Lowry of Heavy Metal!?

Ozzy gives a typically incredible display of vocal theatre in the songs - portraying so many states of madness, fear, alienation, sorrow and twisted humour. Check out SBS, National Acrobat, Sabbra Caddabra, Killing Yourself to Live (uh, and all the vocal tracks actually).

And, as ever, Iommi, Geezer and Bill knit together as a phenomenal unit. Bill is undervalued. He has a unique drumming signature - very focused on Ozzy's singing. He can not really be replaced.

Some say this is the pinnacle of Sabbaths(with Ozzy) career,it would be hard to argue ,personally i think its a tie with 'Sabotage',whats not in question is how fantastic this album is eight perfect moments from a band on form who had taken everything learned from the 4 previous albums and honed it to perfection,the light and shade on this magnificent disc is almost too hard to describe,but i'll try.

As 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' thunders out of the speakers your immediately struck with how clean a sound the band has here,the gritty distorted sound of the early days ahd been replaced with a finesse,a polish,an upgrade which makes the track sound majestic and none of the power has been lost,an awesome opening track,similarly tracks like the stunning 'Killing Yourself To Live & Sabbra Cadabra' benefit from this aural upgrade making the hairs on the back of your neck stand up as they caress your ears.

At the same time the development of the band can be noted in the lyrics of thrillers such as 'A National Acrobat & 'Spiral Architect' as Butlers word-play creates havoc with your mind,what is he talkin about?,its not all gloom and doom though as the melodic interlude that is 'Fluff' and an almost upbeat 'Lookin For Today' lighten the mood while ,that leaves only one other track to mention the sinister big brother overtures of 'Who Are You?' a fantastic atmospheric piece with keyboards to the fore,a sign of things to come.

A stunning 5 star album, possibly the best british rock album of 1973, and i forgot to mention the bagpipes ha ha...........

music from the past this good really needs to be heard by the nu-metal/rock influenced youth of today, it beats stuffings out of most of the stuff they listen to. On this cd there are many memorable moments with songs like (sabbath bloody sabbath)when it goes in to a heavy powerful riff half-way through and the relaxing charm of (fluff). Songs like (killing yourself to live) and (looking to today) really put the cherry on top of this meaty rock cake of delight....BUY this album you will be presently surprised no matter what your musical leaning is.

The sleeve notes say that at the beginning of recording their fifth album, the boys were bereft of ideas, even the metronimic Tony Iommi was blank as to riffs, but after moving into a castle to record it ideas came flooding, and boy, the result is excellent.

I would have to say that I view this as a better album than Volume 4, it seems more complete somehow. When Iommi comes up with a riff he delivers big time, and the opening (title) track is no exception, an absolute killer riff and as a complete song, probably a little fuller than previous Sabbath recordings.

"Fluff" is a beautiful little accoustic track, I swear if you played this to anyone who did not know Sabbath they would never guess who it was, it is so out of character (and I include "Embryo" and "Orchid" in that statement as interesting as they are, they are little more than curios, this is the real thing). This leads on to "Sabra Cadabra" one of my favourite tracks that amply demonstrates what a brilliant bass player Geezer Butler is and carries on through such tracks as "Killing Yourself To Live" to the excellent "Spiral Architect" which concludes the album.

A Sabbath classic that should not be missing from any collection.
