Black Sabbath's debut album is given over to lengthy songs and suite-like pieces where individual songs blur together and riffs pound away one after another, frequently under extended jams. There isn't much variety in tempo, mood, or the band's simple, blues-derived musical vocabulary, but that's not the point; Sabbath's slowed-down, murky guitar rock bludgeons the listener in an almost hallucinatory fashion, reveling in its own dazed, druggy state of consciousness. Songs like the apocalyptic title track, "N.I.B.," and "The Wizard" make their obsessions with evil and black magic seem like more than just stereotypical heavy metal posturing because of the dim, suffocating musical atmosphere the band frames them in. This blueprint would be refined and occasionally elaborated upon over the band's next few albums, but there are plenty of metal classics already here.

·                               CONDITION:
 
·                               THE RECORD
 
(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
 
(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS NEAR MINT. Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions – mostly sleeve scuffs - are (barely) visible, but are probably inaudible, and do not affect visual integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
 
(b)          The record comes in the original poly-lined Vertigo stock inner sleeve.
 
(c)             The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
 
(d)          Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
 
 
·                               THE COVER
 
COVER IS NEAR MINT
 
The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:
 
-        Cover has a visible wrinkle (crease) in the cardboard base on the front panel
-         Minor shelf wear noted on the seams (nothing significant)
-         Cover shows JUST A HINT of yellowing on both sides, apparently from aging.
 
 
NO OTHER VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER
