500 Greatest Albums of All Time

300

Black Sabbath, 'Master of Reality'


Black Sabbath, 'Master of Reality'
300/500

Warner Bros., 1971

The greatest sludge-metal band of them all in its prime. Paranoid may have bigger hits, but Master of Reality, released a mere six months later, is heavier. The highlight is "Sweet Leaf," a droning love song to marijuana. But the vibe is perfectly summed up by the final track, "Into the Void."
