1) Best song selection within its context 2) Best running order of songs 3) Avoids some obvious songs that you may already have
Of the three compilations, covering the Ozzy Osbourne years, this is definitely the best. While the other, 12 track only, compilation, but on the Ariola/Express label, also entitled Iron Man and the original 2CD compilation We Sold Our Soul For Rock 'N' Roll both takes their mainselections from BS debut Black Sabbath and second release Paranoid this release covers more bases while at the same time, with its running order, being by far the most atmospheric listen. A real winner that not only works as an introduction to BS initial years but also works as a work in itself.
