one of my truest yardsticks of maturing and growing into adulthood is realizing how much black sabbath rules.

Still a vital, exciting recording with a salt of the earth, gritty profundity.
The perfect shot across the bow that the hippie Sixties were done. I mean, seriously, within the context of its times, it's a really fucking significant song. Almost as significant as "Another Girl Another Planet," anyway.
As well as Ozzy sounding like a fuck up kid from down the street who's been placed in real psychological torment, the playing is aggressively cosmic and out there.
"All You Need Is Love" may as well have been released 100 years before "Paranoid" in terms of shifting the mood of rock fans.
Oh yeah, different universes. Compare the two and Paranoid nukes the smug, doped-out, thoughtless bit of hackwork that is All You Need is Love from outer space.
You have the cynicism and bile of an Xer born too late. :cool:

Glad to have you among the faithful. I was probably in 3rd grade when my older brother stole a cassette of Paranoid from Caldor in Nanuet, NY and brought it home. I was completely uninterested in music up to that point none of it interested me.
Paranoid was my first musical love, great song and an even greater album. I could do without Planet Caravan but the rest is as good as anything and better than most.
Found my other sock today too.

One of our best friends here, who teaches in the history department and is generally nerdy, told me that her first concert was Sabbath, back in '72 or so. I felt impossibly inadequate when she told me that.

72 would have been a great year to see them.

Especially when you're, like, 13.

Or the drummer.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Outside of Rush, no band has ever listened to its drummer. "No, you can't crash at my place." "No, we don't care that you've 'written a song.'" "No, she wasn't looking at you."

Danny Boyle's a good filmmaker, but I googled the names in the cast and that band shouldn't really be played by pretty boys.

I liked the guys they cast in the Urban Myths episode about the Grundy incident. Captured the character well, I thought.

That's why the White Stripes were so successful.
