Have been using the apple music streaming service for 6 or seven months now. Only because telstra (_smelstra_) give a six month membership with the year phone contract. It’s my duty to listen to as many different things as I can until it runs out then I’ll go back to all the stuff I own.
Listened to the first three Black Sabbath albums on the daily commute. Knew alot of that stuff from best of albums – but it’s always better to hear the hits in context with the rest of the stuff they were created with. First album has some very prominent bass. Second and third less so but great riffs. On the whole, an under-rated band I would say. The way Ozzy hits his lines just off the beat is pretty unique. Contrast the song <a href=”https://youtu.be/7H9ZQSZ9G9I”>Electric Funeral</a> from the second album, Paranoid. On this one song he does hit the lines right on the ‘one’ — listening to it yesterday morning, immediately thought of <a href=”https://orband.bandcamp.com/”>Orb</a>, the Geelong band.
Only the non-power chord rock hasn’t stood up to time as well.
And because the greatest farce in modern history is just about to fly into Victoria:
