Hans has insisted on my 5ing this, let's see if today's the day.

Or if it stays at a 4.5.

Sucking My Love is too good.

Shit, album is tight as fuck, so fucking perfect. It finally hit me.

This is prob the best album produced in the 1976-82 period that didn't belong to either Priest or Maiden. I like Motorhead, but this is on another level for me.

Just one quality metal cut after another. It took a while for this album to really hit me, but fuck, when it hits, it hits hard.

Alrighty, let's set the record straight. Which albums can compete with this for NWBHM supremacy?

For me, none.

The only ones that come close are Iron Maiden's s/t and Killers, Saxon - Strong Arm of the Law and maybe Tygers of Pan Tang - Spellbound and Angel Witch.

Digging: John Coltrane - Ballads

Just look at that cover man. If there's an album that defines metal, it's
this one.

Much like the diamond is crystallized coal, this is crystallized metal.

This exercises inordinate amounts of pressure on any metal album in existence.

The fact that it has 7 tracks feels kinda symbolic too. The number 7 represented
perfection in the Bible, so maybe these guys were doing a spin on that.

Not that I'm a religious dude or anything.

The number of tracks + the cover + the album title + the tight
songwriting, it all ties together so well.


And yeah, Melissa's a similar case.

Spellbound is great but it's got nothing on this. NWOBHM was a great era for metal, tho.

sabbath debut is not perfect in the sense of the word

for me a perfect album must have no flaw whatsoever, and there are certainly few that i've heard
