"War Pigs" may be the best metal song ever written, and "Paranoid" a seminal rock anthem, but this album in general is so inconsistent, apart from his three big hits the other songs are just ok or below it.

I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest metalhead, but quality transcends genre, and this album has quality to spare.

The black country fairies strap on their DM's and sing some modern day madrigals...…

Every track is a winner, though I slightly prefer the debut album. Your heavy metal collection should start with these two.

Arguably the album that truly defined heavy metal.

The songs Paranoid, War Pigs and Iron Man were my introduction to Black Sabbath. Paranoid coming from Guitar Hero III, of course. War Pigs being heard on the radio past midnight and thinking how eerie it sounded. And Iron Man from the Marvel movie's trailer. Once I found out that all 3 songs were on the album, I gave it a listen. It opened my mind into listening to harder rock. With a name like Black Sabbath, I wasn't allowed to listen to them due to my Christian upbringing. But this album made me fall in love with them ever since. Fantastic album.

One of my favorite albums of all time. Every track is pivotal heavy metal, it's perfect from beginning to end.

Black Sabbath delivers one of metal"s first strong albums. The album starts out swinging but loses momentum of the second half.

It's dangerous to make assumptions like these but I think it's safe to say that hard Rock and metal would not be what it is today without Black Sabbath, or even this album. Such is the magnitude of pure genre-creating awesomeness that is Paranoid.

Favorite: War Pigs, Paranoid, Iron Man, Hand of Doom

Least Favorite: /
