FAV TRACKS: all of them!
I think it's a fairly unpopular opinion to say that I liked this more than their self-titled, but both albums are great.

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, despite the name of the album, is pretty light, even in comparison to Black Sabbath's previous works.

A solid Sabbath album that continues their streak of classic albums. The title track remains one of their best and heaviest songs in my opinion and overall there aren’t really any weak tracks on the record (except for “Who Are You?” maybe). Overall, a classic metal album and certainly worth a listen.
