Black Sabbath: Paranoid (Vertigo) ★★★★

uncredited writer, Disc, 12 September 1970

BLACK SABBATH, as a hard rock band, are well up in their field, and Paranoid will no doubt sell as well as their first album. The music is tight, loud, simple and exciting. It is a more impressive set than Sacrifice*, with less emphasis on the magic.
