Black Sabbath Vol. 4
Vol 4 deviates from the three previous releases in terms of sound and ideas. Band and critics suggest that this is the result of non-stop touring and heavy drug abuse. The album's opener "Wheels of Confusion" was probably an attempt to enter prog paths, but it failed in my opinion. The only positive fact was the underlying melody of the organ which starts from the middle of the song and continues to the end. "Tommorow's Dream" has probably the best riff of Iommi on the record, while "Supernaut" and "Snowblind" are probably the best tracks of the album. Although "Changes" became one (if not the most) of the most famous tracks of V
The Aristocrats Culture Clash
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
Master of Reality deviates somehow from the two previous albums. Here there are no jazz or blues elements; Iommi down tunes his guitar and riffs are slow and heavy. Lyrics are also great as they concentrate around anti-war and love for God, something that the media managed to ignore. If the previous two albums were pioneers this one was the most influential one. Recommendations: "Sweet Leaf", "Children of The Grave", "Lord of This World", "Into The Void"
Black Sabbath Paranoid
Recorded in the same year, Sabbath's sophomore album is equally heavy and adventurous as the debut. A pure classic, an album that made Sabbath the heaviest act of its days, with four guys becoming legends. Ozzy's vocals are improved ("Electric Funeral", "Paranoid"), Ward's drumming has become more diverse ("War Pigs", "Rat Salad"), Butler's lyrics continue to be excellent ("Hand of Doom") and Iommi continuous to contribute onerous riffs ("Iron Man", "Fairies Wear Boots")
HammerFall Crimson Thunder
Probably one of the band's weakest albums. I found the production, mixing and sound excellent, but unfortunately I cannot say the same for the quality of the songs. There are some nice tracks like "Riders of The Storm", "Hearts on Fire", "Angel of Mercy"
Sabaton Heroes
Decent but not exciting, especially for older battalion-heads. Those days you had no ballads: the closer you could get to one was "Purple Heart". "The Ballad of Bull" is not bad but It just doesn't suits them. "Inmate 4859" has that heavy, slow, powerfull riff of "Rise of Evil" while the folkish "To Hell and Back" was a pleasant hearing. Lastly, "Soldier of 3 Armies" has that menace and intensity that will keep you devoted and wait for just another release
Tame Impala Innerspeaker
This album goes down as a nostalgic tribute to the late 60s psychedelia. Heavily influenced by The Beatles, the Aussies' debut has a vintage sound and a lot a simplicity both musically and lyrically. Kevin Parker is brilliant young lad with lots of talent and he guides the band steadily to success and recognition. Recommendations: "It's Not Meant To Be", "Desire Be, Desire Go", "Alter Ego", "Solitude Is a Bliss", "The Bold Arrow of Time"r

  • danielcardoso I'm feeling doubtful too. I mean, And You Were a Crow was fantastic, and Dogs was alright, even if I didn't enjoy it as much as the debut. I don't know if they can do it again, but I think it'll be some great stuff, I definitely hope so ;)

  • danielcardoso Hey Antonius, how are you doin'? I finally checked out that Temperance Movement band you once reccomended me. It's some very awesome stuff, I appreciate you mentioning it to me. I also checked out that Radio Moscow album you reviewed and it's pretty cool too. I think that you'd enjoy listening to a band called California Breed. Based on your taste, you're bound to enjoy it. If you do listen to it, let me know what you think. Cheers.
