This album is ground zero for heavy metal...point blank this is where it all began. A moment in time that laid the groundwork for an entire musical genre to come. Everything about this album was iconic...from the artwork on the cover...to Iommi's doom and gloom riffs...to Ozzy's harrowing vocals. No matter what your opinion is of Black Sabbath as a band, there is no doubt that it all began fifty years ago with this instant classic.
With that being said; the epic nature of this moment led me to thinking as to where this album ranks in Black Sabbath's top albums of all-time.
I have decided to start a new feature here at Philly Rock Radio; which will be reviewing our favorite bands' top albums and ranking them from worst to first. This is not the first time that I will be undertaking this challenge and certainly will not be the last. However; I don't think there is a better place to start than with the grand daddies of them all...Black Sabbath.
As I have stated many times before...it is always a journey when creating any "top list" and doing so with bands top albums is no different. The very nature of these projects can cause controversy and widespread debate. Nonetheless, taking on this task is fun and I welcome your thoughts and criticisms alike. Hopefully this segment will be a huge hit as we hit the ground running. Without further ado...Here are Black Sabbath's top ten albums of all-time ranked worst to first...hope you all enjoy!
