Riff: Black Sabbath – “Age of Reason”

Jun 12, 2013

Politics, religion, love of money too/It’s what the world was built for/But not for me and you, oh yeah!

from Age of Reason lyrics by Black Sabbath

Igniting Side B comes the gnar chainsaw rev guitar of Iommi, that’s tame compared to its metal-blues contemporaries, but labored enough to warrant some due elder respect, as Ozzy still going strong for five tracks, gets didactic with a lesson on “mass distraction” getting in the way of “truth.”
