Remastered re-release of the fifth full-length studio album by legendary British Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band.
With this album, the band expanded upon their slow, crunching style of music by strings, keyboards and more complex orchestral arrangements. For the first time in their career, the band began to receive favorable reviews in the mainstream press, with Rolling Stone calling the album "an extraordinarily gripping affair", and "nothing less than a complete success". Later reviewers such as All Music's Eduardo Rivadavia cite the album as "a masterpiece, essential to any heavy metal collection", while also displaying "a newfound sense of finesse and maturity". The album marked the band's fifth consecutive platinum selling album in the United States. It reached number four on the UK charts and number eleven in the US. In the UK, it was the first Black Sabbath album to attain Silver certification (60,000 units sold) by the British Phonographic Industry, achieving this in February 1975.
Remastered edition made from the original source tapes and contains 16 page booklet featuring rare memorabilia and new in-depth story of the album written in conjunction with Bill Ward.
Sanctuary/Universal, 1973/2009 (2716846). Made in Germany.
