My favorite Black Sabbath albums

Firefly
The list author says: "Black Sabbath are one of the greatest bands to ever grace this planet. Along with Led Zeppelin they have influenced and inspired a ton of bands in all genres of music."
Sabotage
Sabotage
"A musical masterpiece. Complex with great depth. You have to listen to this album in its entirety to appreciate its aura. Thrill of it All, The Writ, Megalomania"
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
"Equal to Sabotage, this album is amazing. It's heavy with lots of groove and color. A National Acrobat, Spiral Architect, Sabbra Cadabra."
Heaven And Hell
Heaven And Hell
"Dio's incredible debut with the band. Dark and upbeat with a theatrical/fantasy theme. Iommi's lead work is a big highlight. Neon Knights, Heaven and Hell, Die Young."
Never Say Die
Never Say Die
"Ozzy's last album with Black Sabbath. Beautifully orchestrated sections, experimental, melodic and less heavier than their past efforts. Very underrated album. Junior Eyes, Air Dance, Over to you."
Technical Ecstasy
Technical Ecstasy
"Highly underrated. A much different record for BS, it's full of synths and other musical experimentations. Back Street Kids, Dirty Women, All Moving Parts Stand Still."
Mob Rules
Mob Rules
"Dio's 2nd effort. His vocals sound dynamic and melodic as ever. Just like H&H the fantasy lyrics are evident with iommi's epic riffs. The Sign Of The Southern Cross, Slipping Away, Voodoo."
Dehumanizer
Dehumanizer
"Dio is back. Probably the heaviest album since Born Again. A great comeback but, sadly short lived. Letters From Earth, Sins Of The Father, I, After All (The Dead)"
Black Sabbath, Vol.4
Black Sabbath, Vol.4
"A mature album. Like most Sabbath albums it's dark with great grooves. This album invented stoner rock. Wheels Of Confusion, Supernaut, Snowblind"
The Devil You Know
The Devil You Know
"Yes! This is a Black Sabbath album. It is travesty that it doesn't bear the name. This release is a great comeback by the true legends. Bible Black, Fear, Rock n' Roll Angel, Eating The Cannibals."
Paranoid
Paranoid
"Black Sabbath's most well known album. This solidified them as the true innovators of the Heavy Metal genre. War Pigs, Hand of Doom, Fairies Wear Boots."
Cross Purposes
Cross Purposes
"The best of the Tony Martin era. Iommi and Butler are back together and provide Martin with monster riffs, great lyrics and memorable melodies. I Witness, Dying for Love, Evil Eye."
Born Again
Born Again
"Ian Gillan's only album with Sabbath. A real good one if you can get past the over the top vocals and sloppy production. Disturbing The Priest, Trashed, Born Again."
Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath
"The first album to start it all. Raw, heavy and inspiring. This album is the epitomy of DOOM. The Wizard, Behind the Wall of Sleep, NIB."
Master of Reality
Master of Reality
"This album is down right heavy, sludgy with lots of depravity and drug references through out. A real classic doom record. Children Of The Grave, Lord Of This World, Solitude."
Eternal Idol, The
Eternal Idol, The
"The first Tony Martin album. It's got a Bluesy side and a progressive side, originally had the late Ray Giilen on vocals. The Shining, Born to Lose, Hard Life to Love."
TYR
TYR
"TYR is a concept album about Norse mythology (hard to get used at first). A progressive metal album with good songs. Iommi is brilliant on this. Jerusalem, Valhalla, Feels Good To Me, Anno Mundi."
Forbidden
Forbidden
"The last BS album. This album gets a bad rap and I don't see why. Straight ahead raw bluesy hard rock. VERY UNDERRATED, I LOVE THIS ALBUM. Rusty Angels, Sick and Tired, Kiss of Death."
Headless Cross
Headless Cross
"Another progressive metal album for BS. A few good songs but just a little too much keyboards and "Satan" references in the lyrics. Headless Cross, When Death Calls, Black Moon."
Seventh Star
Seventh Star
"Not a big fan of Glenn Hughes voice on this album....ok record. The album "Fused" is much better"
