23. We Sold Our Soul For Rock 'N' Roll - Black Sabbath [1975]

Fulsome doffing of caps to revered old masters Tony, Bill, Ozzy & Geezer. Culled from 70 - 73 run of anvil smitten classics -  Black SabbathParanoid, Master of RealityVol 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - historical heaviosity imprimatur par excellence. Monolithic, primally unsubtle indebtedness to sheet metal factory accident. Yea, the evergreen thrill of Sweat Leaf's opening salvo; Sabbath Bloody Sabbath's noisy-quiet template which we fule know eventually births Pixies and Nirvana and beyond; the magnificent, dunderheadedly audible manual turning of volume to number 11 at 0:40secs into N.I.B..

In retrospect, a surprisingly pervasive air of less than sunny trips and drowsy narcotics. Presumably, before Messrs. Brandy and Snow commandeered the driving-seats.

As y brawd is prone to declare, essential.
