Master of Reality ()

by

After perfecting the formula for their lumbering heavy metal on Paranoid, Black Sabbath continued bludgeoning their audience into sweet, willing oblivion with Master of Reality and its seemingly endless supply of crushingly heavy riffs. If the album is a showcase for anyone, it is Tony Iommi, who keeps the album afloat with a series of slow, loud riffs, the best of which -- "Sweet Leaf" and "Children of the Grave" among them -- rank among his finest playing. There are a few stray necessary tracks scattered throughout the group's other early-'70s albums, but Master of Reality is the last time they delivered a consistent album and its influence can be heard throughout the generations of heavy metal bands that followed. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi Hide synopsis
