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

Not a single bad song. For me it's certain that you can show this album even to a yoga teacher and they will certainly agree with you that the dark side has its advantages. It even makes me wonder about my love for George Harrison and his integrity...

I can't say what probably hasn't been said already. If their first album established the genre of metal. This one set the standard of it sky high. Just an utter masterpiece. Every second is enjoyable and full of raw energy and heavy sound. Even the bassy and slow "Solitude" is great! It breaks up the action perfectly.

From Fischman 12/15/2016 16:26
On this album, Tony Iommi fully establishes himself as the riffmaster in addition to laying out some very tasty solos. The rest of the band are tight without letting polish overwhelm their dark vision. A rare album where every song is worthwhile; no need to ever use the "next track" button.

On this album, each song is really good! There is no bad song. I think it's the best one in my collection.
