As others have said (rightly, I might add) this is a masterpiece.  I think Sabotage is a bit of a drop off, but the debut through this album are pretty much flawless.
Yes indeed. Vol. 4 doesn't get enough love imo. Supernaut baby!

That one COULD be the best one.  Other than FX, no down moments.  

The (first) Ozzy era albums really started with an amazing run.

I'm listening right now  ... Ozzy era Sabbath is something I want to get more familiar with ..

Is this the first Sabbath album that had synths ??  - I love them in these songs ....

Fluff into Sabbra Cadabra is great - I love it .. I think this is the best as far as Ozzy's vocals - he usually grates on me after a few songs, but I am really enjoying this
No Master of Reality was the first one with synths. Iommi played synth on After Forever.

Respectfully disagree with both these posts. Sabotage is their best album.

And out of the first 6 albums, it is Vol 4 that is flawed. Subpar production and out of tune guitars.

There's a reason for that:

In his autobiography I Am Ozzy, singer Ozzy Osbourne speaks at length about the drugged out atmosphere surrounding the sessions, stating, "In spite of all the arsing around, musically those few weeks in Bel Air were the strongest we'd ever been" but admitted "Eventually we started to wonder where the f**k all the coke was coming from ... I'm telling you: that coke was the whitest, purest, strongest stuff you could ever imagine. One sniff, and you were king of the universe." Osbourne also recounts the band's ongoing anxiety over the possibility of being busted, which only worsened after they went to the cinema to see The French Connection (1971), a William Friedkin film about two undercover New York City cops busting an international heroin-smuggling ring. "By the time the credits rolled," Osbourne recalled, "I was hyperventilating." Iommi describes the scene in his memoir Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven & Hell with Black Sabbath, "like Tony Montana in the movie Scarface: we'd put a big pile (of cocaine) on the table, carve it all up and then we'd all have a bit, well, quite a lot." In 2013, Butler admitted to Mojo magazine that heroin, too, had entered the picture: "We sniffed it, we never shot up ... I didn't realize how nuts things had gotten until I went home and the girl I was with didn't recognize me."

Have to agree Sabotage is also great!  A pretty good run of all time classics.

It's a stellar masterpiece, hard to find fault at all really.

Sadly, they don't make them like that anymore.......

Sabotage has some amazing moments, but some not so stellar ones too.

But Hole in the Sky is my favorite Ozzy era tune

I love this album so much. almost as much as Sabotage.
X2...

Sabbath meets progressive rock and makes an excellent twin album set.

Ozzy had been hanging with Rick Wakeman at the time.

Sabbra Cadabra is just barely my favorite, with Spiral Architet a close second.

A little stunned to see that Spiral Architect has zero votes for favorite. :(

Yeah, I don't really understand why people don't like it as much. That acoustic intro? Haunting and mesmerizing.
