For me this is Sabbath's best album, but only just, there are so many contenders. Number 11 in my 100 greatest albums from my top group.

Really underrated album. Not many angry albums like this out there. Megalomania is unbelievable.

Best Ozzy vocals and some of the most overlooked great songs: Symptom of the Universe (thrash metal in 1975) and Megalomania
Deserves more attention, definitely

Really solid album from Black Sabbath here musically. In my opinion, this album is where Ozzy shines most. The riffs are still killer but Ozzy takes the spotlight on this record and gives arguably his best vocal performance of any previous album. This is in my opinion the last truly great album in Sabbath's discography ending a near perfect 5 album streak.

Best tracks: Symptom of the Universe, Hole In The Sky, The Writ, The Thrill Of It, Megalomania

From phopwood
I love albums that catch the energy of the session. At the time Sabbath was in heated litagation against their previous management. The rage and fury is all over this record. Particularly on "Megalomania" and my favorite track "The Writ" Definitely my favorite release by Black Sabbath.

My favorite Sabbath album, and definitely their most underrated. Ozzy sounds better on this album than any other, so raw and angry. Some of their best tracks are on here: Hole in the Sky, Symptom of the Universe, Megalomania, The Thrill of it All, and The Writ (my favorite Sabbath song).

From AAL2014
I don't think this is Sabbath's strongest, however there are some great moments just like any of the first 6 or 7 Ozzy-led Sabbath records.

There are some good leads, both acoustic and electric from Iommi, and really some of Ozzy's strongest lead vocals ever.

The sixth stop on my journey through Black Sabbath's discography and I have to say so far they just can't make a bad album! This one was probably the weakest by their standards for me, but still so so good obviously. The opening Hole in the Sky is my favorite and set a great tone for the record. Awesome.
