Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (1970)
Their music, sound and lyrics alltogether were so different from other bands that time, that they became an icon, and could be easily distinguished from others in the '70s scene. The deepest, heaviest and loudest band of all time with their lyrical topics of occultism, societal problems, rebelling behaviour, drug overdose, apocalypse were more than unusual on the side of the common songs of love, loneliness and heartbreak. It's another question how Black Sabbath could authentically include all of those, and create an organic picture. And the question may stand even in only one topic, cause while once in their lyrics they signed God as the only way to love, next time they turned into complete atheism. Probably it was up to the type, quality and amount of drugs they used, so there is really no need to merge into a philosophical analysis of their "ars poetica". Only to enjoy that omnious, sometimes depressive, sometimes powerful feeling they created with some psychedelic touch.
