As someone who has made fun of Burzum in the past, me enjoying this album was a surprise. Other than the obnoxious vocals, the rest is pretty good. Some awesome riffs, the production is really thin but it works for what it's going for and it has some unexpectably good solos. Maybe I was in the right mindset when I listened to it, but I liked it.

I have some legitimate problems with it. I do feel that the production is pretty dated at this point. After all these years, it doesn't feel as heavy as it did when it came out. Also I prefer the more doom metal aesthetic of their self-titled. The bass is not as prominent and there are not as many standout guitar solos. But this album is so iconic at this point, it's almost impossible to not enjoy it. As overplayed and mainstream as it has become, it's still a badass album.

My personal favourite Sabbath record. I love the doom metal moments, the lyrics are awesome, Toniy Iommi's guitar playing is amazing, the song compositions are energetic and hard hitting, there's not much I don't like about it. Like yeah I'm not a fan of the song Evil Woman, but this is such an important album in metal history I feel like I have to give it a perfect score. But I do wholeheartedly enjoy this album.

I have become some kind of Agalloch fanboy at this point. I love everything I've heard from them and this is no exception. It's a debue, yet there's nothing about it that doesn't work.

An A- for creativity but a C+ for enjoyment I guess.
I have only listened to it once so it may grow but while I appreecite what they did here, it didn't fully click with me. It's still a good record, just not what I'd listen to. I dunno it may change in the future. Now there are like 2 tracks that I'd come back to.

Favourite tracks: Deus In Absentia, Cirice, Absolution, Mummy Dust. Spirit
