    I listen to Sabbath every day. They are by far my favorite band and sometimes my passion for them can lead to zealotry and seem a bit illogical. The original era is what I fell in love with but I have grown to love all the other stuff as well. The last coupla days I've been rockin my ipod complete Sabbath disog playlist in random play. It will bounce from Ozzy to Dio to Martin era songs it's been kinda fun. I'm totally an album guy so it's kinda strange hearing the songs like this. It's like Black Sabbath radio.

      I was just thinking we on this forum have a lot of different takes on things, we disagree a lot, whether it be our views on politics or the different Sabbath eras, which I love them all, one thing we all have in common and agree on is our love for Black Sabbath.

        Been my #1 band sense I first heard them in 1972. One oddity of mine is this:
        I do not listen to Sabbath every day. The reason is because they are the
        only band that when I listen, I must hear the entire album start to finish. Never
        1 or 2 songs. Therefore, if I know I won't have the time to play the whole album,
        I wait. It has always been that way.
        Nobody I know is gonna take my rock & roll away from me.

          Strangely, I don't listen to much music in general anymore... except in my car, but mainly the radio on low... once in a while a CD usually something I mixed... i rarely listen to Sabbath even though they are my favorite band... the music is imbedded in my DNA, I don't have to play it...

          If I do listen to music, it's something new I've discovered... and not usally hard rock or certainly not metal, I know I'm a minority here, but heavy metal isn't my kind of music... that may sound strange coming from a Sab freak, but I'd rather listen to acoustic music or blues... blusey jazz... I have no desire to listen to Sabbath records I've heard 1,000 times or any others... haven't listened to 13 in months...

            I'm not a fan of metal per-se. I like all different kinds of music. A few years ago I tried to get into iron maiden and Judas Priest and I just couldn't

              It's exactly the same with me. Exept i do listen to Metal every now and then. And i don't drive a car, but i use my mp3-player heavily when taking a bus or a train. And every now and then i put on a Sabbath-album when i'm going to sleep...
              95% of everything i say is pure bullshit just for the fun of it. The other 95% is damn serious!

                Ditto! I don't personally consider Sabbath to be heavy metal. When I first heard them, back in the day, they were known as heavy rock, along with Deep Purple, Zeppelin, and others. Like WC, I don't listen to my favorite groups all of the time, and that is because I am so familiar with their music, and want it to be a treat. Over exposure can ruin a love for a group. Most metal is terrible IMHO, but that's a generational thing.

                  In my mind the first proper "metal" album was Judas Priest's British Steel. The style changed from Killing Machine which had a bit of swing and groove to some of the tracks where BS was more square sounding, very exact or defined, very hard to put into words what I mean. It's like Priest shrugged off the remaining blues influences and became metal.

                  Anyway, Sabbath? Not metal until 1980.

                    No way I could sleep after a session with Sabbath. I'd be too pumped up and
                    full of energy.

                      It really depends on the mood. Sometimes Sabbath can be the perfect lullaby to sail away to dreamland by.

                        Funny, I think Sabbath created Metal in 1970 and Stained Class is way more Metal than British Steel.

                          Black Sabbath is embedded in my mind, heart and soul.

                          Black Sabbath is a part of me, a part of who I am, they are all I basically listen to, and I listen to them every single day with enjoyment, pleasure and enthusiasm, without failure.

                            OID, I agree, no other band can approach the greatness of Black Sabbath. I listen to other music as well, but I have always enjoyed Black Sabbath the most and that will never change.
