Godfathers of Metal, Lords of Doom, the musical importance of Sabbath can not be overstated. Over the years, they were able to handle a number of changes in vocalist with a wide variety in styles and delivery, and still consistently produce top-shelf metal albums. All great musicians, guitarist Tony Iommi in particular is cited by almost every hard rock/metal guitarist since as a major influence, and Geezer Butler is one of the top 5 rock bassists of all time.

Paranoid is great but their debut may be my personal favorite. Their first 6 albums are all classic and that is a string of greatness very few can say. It wasn't Sabbath after Ozzy left but RJD had his moments. Heaven & Hell is pretty great album that belongs alongside the earlier albums as a classic. It probably would be more highly regarded had he not been replacing Ozzie and instead gone under a new name (which they did later), something Zack Wylde alluding to.

Sabbath>Zeppelin. One of the most original bands of all time. Zeppelin is good, but not very original. Tony Iommi invented a whole new guitar style that changed rock music forever.

The Godfathers of Heavy Metal according to many people. I fully agree with them, they had a distinctive sound not many bands had when they first came around. If someone was to start listening and getting into to Heavy Metal for the first time and they don't know what band to pick, this is where they start first.

Love every song on their first two albums, have their 3rd not into it that much. Seen them live in 2013 and it was great, especially Tony Iommi playing the guitar! Top quality guitarist in his genre.

From Willie24 11/03/2013 16:35
Unremittingly very loud and very heavy, Black Sabbath are arguably the originators of the prototype ‘heavy metal’ sound and image. Their uncompromising sound, lyrics and image was full of dark foreboding and references to the black arts and the occult. This format has been copied by countless other bands but Black Sabbath were the originals. The Sabbath were never really taken seriously by the critics and it is true to say that the music is somewhat primitive with Tommy Iommi’s slow riff laden guitar sound and Osbourne’s trademark vocal wail often ridiculed. Having said that the band were incredibly successful, achieving consistent UK and US chart success throughout the early 1970’s and few groups have such a loyal fan base that is still as passionate about Ozzy and the boys as they ever were.

One of the true greats, loved the tuned down sound although changed after the 'Ozzmeister' left. Only let down was Forbidden, a truly awful album. Their new album shows they've still got it, Ozzy can barely string two words together, but oh boy can he can sing.

Great band - possibly the most important heavy metal band ever. Don't agree with the ordering on this one - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is their classic album - more riffs than most bands in a lifetime
