"Simply put, this is the best metal album by the best metal band and I will stand by that opinion until death. Very few albums set the tone so early for what's ahead as Sabbath does here with the first riff on War Pigs - eerie, powerful, timeless. I can only imagine what this must have been like to listen to in 1970 (!). Truly ahead of it's time and an easy entry on the Mt. Rushmore of Rock. No collection is complete without Paranoid on the shelf."
Favorite Tracks: War Pigs, Iron Man, Paranoid
