"Paranoid" and "Master of Reality" are often cited as the best Black Sabbath albums. IMHO, "Vol 4" is not far from them. It is a more diverse album, with still very heavy tunes (the intro of "Under the Sun", the main riff of "Tomorrow's Dream", "Supernaut", "Cornucopia") but also mellower tracks like the beautiful "Changes" and the instrumental "Laguna Sunrise". Perhaps for the first time, Ozzy's vocals surpass the potent riffs of Tony Iommi, which is not an easy task. In addition, the drug-fueled brains of the musicians created these peculiar atmospheres ("Snowblind", the outro of "Under the Sun"). A fantastic album for every rock fan.
