Black Sabbath really took heavy rock to another level with this album, setting the standard for all future rockers to come! A really enjoyable album.

This album has 5 actual tracks, 2 instrumentals, and 1 trippy thing that I usually like to forget. The 5 genuine tracks are absolutely amazing, the 2 instrumentals serve their purpose well and provide nice contrast that still fits with the album, and that 1 trippy song (Solitude) is still pretty good, but not nearly as good as Planet Caravan. Iommi took his deep, heavy sound and somehow made it deeper/heavier. This album provides such a distinguishable mood and atmosphere that I can't help but give it a 10 even though I don't consider it entirely perfect.

It really feels more of the same from Black Sabbath, but It is rather more consistent than their previous albums.

From LedZep
Amazing stuff. Much ahead of its time, the heaviest and doomiest thing of the 70s. Not only that, there isn't a single "not great" track here and the album as a whole sounds coherent. A serious contender for the best Sabbath album.

Again, another amazing Sabbath edition here. It's all been said, but this album is so essential to a metal lover. Really good stuff here. Children of the Grave is my personal favorite.

From Fischman
A little more energetic and less Doom-y than the debut, but still dark and edgy, if a little inconsistent. But the classic riffs are there in spades and this remains an essential element in the early Sabbath catalog.
