Album Description:

SABOTAGE is the sixth studio album by the British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, released in July 1975.

Recording:

Black Sabbath began work on their sixth album in February 1975, again in England at Morgan Studios in Willesden, London. They had a decisive vision to differ the sound from their previous album SABBATH, BLOODY SABBATH. Guitarist Tony Iommi, who produced the album, said that "We could've continued and gone on and on, getting more technical, using orchestras and everything else which we didn't particularly want to. We took a look at ourselves, and we wanted to do a rock album - SABBATH, BLOODY SABBATH wasn't a rock album, really."

Over the years, singer Ozzy Osbourne has often complained in interviews that this album marked the beginning of what he described as Tony Iommi's studio production obsession. SABOTAGE took considerably longer to record and produce than each of their preceding albums, making it the most costly Black Sabbath album to that point. In comparison, the band's first album, BLACK SABBATH (1970), took only 12 hours to record at a cost of a few hundred pounds.

Music and lyrics:

The album is a mix of heavy, powerful songs such as the crushing album opener "Hole in the Sky" and the ultra-stimulated rager "Symptom of the Universe," as well as softer experimental songs such as "Supertzar" and "Am I Going Insane (Radio)," which are similar to the band's previous album. "Symptom of the Universe" would be used later as an opener for Ozzy Osbourne's 1982 solo live album of Sabbath nuggets, SPEAK OF THE DEVIL. "Am I Going Insane (Radio)" is undoubtedly the album's most surprising and tripped-out psychedelic rocker, which would be included a year later on Sabbath's greatest-hits collection, WE SOLD OUR SOUL FOR ROCK N' ROLL. "Am I Going Insane (Radio)" song title caused some confusion due to the "(Radio)" part, which lead people to believe the song was a radio cut or radio version. However this is the only version of the song. The term 'radio-rental' is rhyming slang for 'mental'. The song itself is very different from the typical Ozzy Osbourne-era Black Sabbath song. It features no heavy guitar riff; instead, a keyboard riff is prominent.  The song concludes with an "insane laugh" which carries into "The Writ".

Black Sabbath: Ozzy Osbourne (vocals); Tony Iommi (guitar); Geezer Butler (bass); Bill Ward (drums).

Principally recorded during February-March 1975 at Morgan Studios, London, England.
