The birth of metal with those opening chords is something divine to witness.

What a debut album. The frightening cover sets the scene for the first track, with the heavy rain, thunder and tolling Church bell. My only slight irritation with the whole album is the fact that Ozzy used the word 'me' at the end of the same verse twice in the opening vocal lines of track one i.e 'what is this I see before me' and 'figure looking at me'. He could have been a bit more creative here. Apart from that minor irritation it is a solid metal album which i enjoy listening to occasionally. There is a 'haunting feel' to the recording which is complimented by the harmonica. Some great guitar soloing thrown in to boot.

'Black Sabbath' title track has that horrific metal sound you associate with the band the other in 'N.I.B', a lot of the other tracks are standard rock to me like Led Zepp and Purple,the track 'Warning'sounds like a little element of the Doors in there to me also.

All I have to say... The title track is at least 500 haunted.. Amazing Sabbath album. My favorite. Not a single bad track or second on this one.

In a more objective and/or metal friendly environment this would have 88/89 rating easily. True classic, the first metal album ever! Created a whole genre.

Great debut from a great band. A lot bluesier than most of Sabbath's other stuff, but still super heavy. Favorite track is The Wizard
