A must have if you like familiar hits of Black Sabbath

Pros:All the good stuff in one neat little package

Cons:2 songs left off of cd release that were on the vinyl/cassette release

The Bottom Line: If you don't own any Black Sabbath, start here!


I am a fan of the band for over 25 years now and bought all of the Black Sabbath records (including this one) on vinyl.

This cd encapsulates the biggest hits from the first six Sabbath albums. If you want the best of the band as far as what you'd know from the radio, this is all you need.

The opening track, the title track from their first studio release, sets the stage for a powerful and unpredictable trip through the earliest days when metal was being forged by these four artists. Ozzy's searing harmonica sets an ominous tone in the Wizard and the hits just keep coming. The rest is heavy metal history.

The cd is filled with smashing guitar hooks via Tony Iommi, the groovy yet rumbling rhythms Geezer Butler (bass) & Bill Ward (drums) and the unmistakable voice of Ozzy Osbourne leading you through a mental metal landscape. It is no surprise to me that this band stands strong on the music they created so many years ago and are still winning over new fans today with those same hits.

If you can find this release on vinyl or cassette, you'll be lucky enough to have two extra songs, not included the cd; Warning and Laguna Sunrise. Two songs that very much show the contrast this diversity of this iconic band.
