Review of the Black Sabbath CD Paranoid
The exceptionally talented Rock group Black Sabbath have released their CD entitled Paranoid. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Black Sabbath fans, and Rock fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Paranoid their artistic excellence is on full display as they have once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be their best work to date.
It's a rare day indeed that I get a CD from an artist that I can truthfully say does not have a bad track in the bunch. I'm more than happy to announce that's exactly what I must say about this one. There simply is NOT a bad one in the bunch. No fillers here at all, with each song standing tall on it's own.
The nice thing about a CD like this is with this level of talent even if Rock isn't your favorite style you still can't help but appreciate the greatness of the musicians.
Overall Paranoid is an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up and is most definitely a worthy addition to any Rock collection. Truly an outstanding Rock CD. One of those that is completely void of any wasted time, as each track is simply superb.
While this entire album is really very good some of my favorites are track 3 – Planet Caravan, track 6 – Hand Of Doom, and track 8 – Jack The Stripper / Fairies Wear Boots
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [.as in Stuck On REpeat] is track 1 – War Pigs / Luke's Wall. It's a great track
