Black Sabbath: The Complete Albums 1970-1978

Weekly music roundup.



Black Sabbath
The Complete Albums 1970-1978
Warner Music

The great triumvirate of first-wave British heavy metal bands has left a complicated legacy. Deep Purple would change and get faster and harder. Led Zeppelin would become synonymous with overblown classic rock. But it was Black Sabbath that left such a sweaty skid mark on rock history that the music remains a touchstone for today‚Äôs vaped-out teenage stoners some 40 years later. And all this burnout noise is handsomely packaged in a stripped-down box set, in which the CD sleeves are like miniatures of the old LPs.
