Paranoid by Black Sabbath
Released: Sep 1970
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
The '60s woke up hungover and disillusioned and the sound they heard was Paranoid. With their second album, Sabbath unearth the darkness behind an increasingly abusive drug culture while wailing through one of the most vicious anti-war songs and heaviest-est riffs of all time ("War Pigs," "Iron Man"). Finale "Fairies Wear Boots" still stands as one of the most unsettling descents into madness ever put on tape. More than bat biting and ant snorting, Paranoid is the reason Ozzy became the legend he is.
