Black Sabbath: The Best Of Black Sabbath

Sound — 10
This is bassically "A Best Of" album which has their best songs stretched over two CDs. The CDs have the typical hits like "Paranoid," "NIB," "Black Sabbath" and so on, all digitally remastered but probably not as good as the Black Box's remastereing.

Lyrics — 10
Geezer lyrics on the CD's are great showing different issues in life from drugs, war, releigon, witch craft, and so on. Most of the CD's consist of Ozzy on vocals which suit the music great but there is also Ronnie James Dio and Ian Gillan which have good voices but I don't listen to those tracks 'cause it doesn't suit Sabbath's sound. Good thing there is only three tracks with them.

Overall Impression — 10
Because it is a "Best Of" album you can't compare to the likes of 'Paranoid', or 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' but compared to the other best of albums released of sabbath, this probably is one of the best. They did miss out some good songs like "After Forever," "Behind The Of Sleep," "A National Acrobat" and "Hand Of Doom" though. Other than that, this a good album to get if you are new to Black Sabbath to get a taste of each of all the Ozzy era albums and a bit of the stuff with Dio. If this was stolen I would defiantly get a new copy.
