If Carling made Albums .......,
This review is from: Superunknown [20th Anniversary Double LP] [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Having reached the age of 60 I despaired when I learnt my love of vinyl was once again considered "Cool"
I started buying records as a teenager in the late 1960's and on acquiring my first Led Zeppelin album knew I had found my favourite genre. Sabbath's Paranoid quickly made its way into a collection that continued to grow year on year until just after my 40th birthday when I bought this for the first time and realized it was a truly great album.
This is the fourth time I have bought this album ( twice on vinyl twice on CD ) as it appeared that my offspring always felt the need to liberate a copy on leaving home.
Superunknown is more than a collection of the well-known singles like Spoonman, black hole sun and the rest. It's a collaboration of gifted, always warring, musicians creating a magnificent picture of despair in drop d. which draws on and surpasses the roots provided by Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.
Thankfully caught their reunion tour this year. It was great to see them still arguing.
I always worry about buying remasters and anniversary "re-issues" as they can be disastrous wastes of money (oasis' definitely maybe recently comes to mind)
Not in this case as this easily betters the CD in sound quality.
