Sabotage is a truly enjoyable album, and is often remembered as one of Black Sabbath's finest efforts. This is an album that must be heard by any admirer of Heavy Metal as it will surely be a listening experience well worth your time.

AllMusic

Sabotage is the final release of Black Sabbath's legendary First Six, and it's also the least celebrated of the bunch, though most die-hard fans would consider it criminally underrated.

Rolling Stone

Sabotage continues the theme of themeless epic suites with twisted stoner-prog anthems that rock as hard as the early days, but also hyperextended themselves in unexpected ways.

Black Sabbath has once more blessed us with another really good record. This time, my internet dips to an unbearable halt, and I have to sit and wait for a few more guitar riffs to trickle down my headphones. Despite my wi-fi connection having a stroke, I had a fun time with this album. A bit more commercialized, but still retaining the charm of some of their previous works. Gets a little tedious with the longer tracks though. ヽ(#゚Д゚)ノ┌┛

Sabotage is a bit of a rebound for Black Sabbath. The album takes the hard rock from their previous two albums and combines it with the sound of their first three albums. The album is pretty front-heavy though. The back half is really boring and kind of all over the place. Overall a decent album.

Favorites: Megalomania & Hole In The Sky
Unfavorites: The Writ

The last of the great Sabbath albums, so here's where I stop
This was a great send-off and a little underrated - It held almost as much charm as their previous releases
