Much as I love the early Black Sabbath, I don’t get round to playing their CDs much these days.  Yet I just heard Iron Man on the radio, and it was good to hear it again.  Oddly enough the lyrics have, for me, a poignancy that was not there before.  I wonder how many people would feel the same.

Of their early material, Paranoid is the album that is best known.  That one is in my collection as well, but it’s the first album that I prefer.

I’ve often thought that the ‘Goth’ genre can be traced back to the title track (though I guess few would openly acknowledge that).  That first album also has on it the song War Pigs.  If only such political statements were more prevalent these days.
