Often cited as the first stoner rock album, Iommi and Butler tuned down to C# for Master Of Reality and a darker, sludgier sound was the result.
"Alright now! Won't you listen?"
“Crumbs! Just one album? I really ought to say Master Of Reality by Black Sabbath, because they are my all-time favourite band.” (Thanks, cheezes)
“Master Of Reality – Sabbath.” (Thanks, dudewheresmybass)
“It would have to be a Black Sabbath album. Somewhere between Master Of Reality, Vol 4 and Sabotage. Although the opening riff to their first album is iconic, it was still a kinda rhythm and bluesy album I think. Paranoid was a great leap forward but I think they pretty much defined heavy metal with Master Of Reality so Master Of Reality it is!!!” (Thanks, bbcoz)
