Gotta have this for the second disc…. This two CD version of Master Of Reality is a must have for Black Sabbath fans mainly for the second disc, which contains previously unreleased versions of all but one song from M.O.R. and the rarest of creatures, a previously unreleased song, yes, a bona-fide song!! As far as I know, this is the first official release on CD of any previously unreleased Black Sabbath song. The name of the song is ‘Weevil Woman 71’, supposedly (at least that’s what they say in the liner notes) in reference to ‘Evil Woman’, which it also kind of borrows the riff from. I agree with what they say in the liner notes…it’s a shame the Black Sabbath didn’t work on this song more and try to include it on one of their albums, for even in this slightly unfinished and rough state, it is a killer of a song!! The main riff is very heavy and I like the way the tempo picks up in places. I think this tune would have sounded more at home on Volume 4 than on Master Of Reality. It is not the greatest song Black Sabbath…

the beginnings of doom metal my friends..the beginning.. Its clear listening to bands like Cathedral or Electric Wizard that they were heavily influenced by Black Sabbath.From beginning to end Master Of Reality has a heaviness that’s missing from any other Sabbath album ever recorded.The low distortion,the trudging,plodding pace,all that’s missing is the depressing lyrical content and we’d have a Candlemass album.All of the songs truly shine with a life of their own.From the opener Sweet Leaf to the closing and heaviest Sabbath song ever written Into the Void,this is a stellar album that in my opinion is arguably one of the best and most underrated heavy metal albums in existence.My personal favorites here are Children of the Grave,Into the Void and the perfectly melancholy Solitude which one could view as the precursor to Volume 4’s ballad Changes.Also check the album’s second song for further proof that the members of Sabbath weren’t satanists.This is by far my favorite Sabbath album and after a few dozen listens,it’ll be yours too.

Cough…Cough..Cough… That is how Master of Reality begins, with the famous repetitive cough of “Sweet Leaf”. On this 1971 release, Sabbath’s third album, the band has become “masters” of their own sound. Calling Black Sabbath influential is an understatement. Listen to any of their first 4 albums and you can hear where several “metal” bands got their riffs, style, and “dark” image. Actually, the silliest idea about Black Sabbath is that they are all satan worshippers obsessed with death and think that everyone should commit suicide. Anyone who ever thought these things about this group should try reading the words that Ozzy Osbourne is singing. Their not evil words and a prime example is on Master of Reality. For example, in “After Forever” is clearly about finding God – “They should realize that God is the only way to love.” and “Children of the Grave” (No it’s not about little kids rising from their graves and killing people) is…
