Black Sabbath - Paranoid mp3 album

Paranoid is the second studio album by the English rock band Black Sabbath. Released in September 1970, it was the band's only LP to top the UK Albums Chart until the release of 13 in 2013. Paranoid contains several of the band's signature songs, including "Iron Man", "War Pigs" and the title track, which was the band's only Top 20 hit, reaching number 4 in the UK charts. It is often cited as an influential album in the development of heavy metal music.

Paranoid is the second studio album by the English rock band Black Sabbath released on September 18th 1970 in the UK and on January 7th 1971 in the US, it was the band's only LP to top the UK Albums Chart until the release of 13 in 2013.

Six months after releasing Black Sabbath, they issued the song as Black Sabbath’s second single and demanded that the album’s title be changed from War Pigs to Paranoid. They wanted to remind potential customers of the song they’d seen four long-haired weirdos headbang to on Top of the Pops while avoiding the nasty business of saying something controversial in an era already fraught with civil unrest. But in the sprint to get the record into stores, Vertigo never bothered to commission an image that fit the new name. Propelled by its lead single, Paranoid was the only Black Sabbath album to top the British charts for the next four decades. where it nearly broke into the Top 10 mere months after the band’s small stateside debut, it has gone platinum four times.

Most of Black Sabbath's second album was written around the time of their first album. They recorded the whole "Paranoid" album in about two or three days, live in the studio. Though the band members were sent back to the studio to record one more song because the record company deemed the album was too short. Guitarist Tony Iommi recalled, "I sat there during the lunch break and came up with the main riff for 'Paranoid. Official music video. Black Sabbath performed "Paranoid" for German music program Beat Club (episode. It was shot shortly after the release of the album. The band performed the song on this TV soundstage with loaned equipment, leaving many viewers to believe that the band used Orange amps. This version is usually recognized as the official video for the song. Black Sabbath also filmed a music video for "Paranoid" in Belgium in 1970.

Black Sabbath’s second album topped the UK Charts, containing the hit songs Paranoid, War Pigs and Iron Man. It is considered a classic and is one of the most influential albums in heavy metal history. The album is widely considered the best metal album of all time, but the whole record features songs classified in many genres, like Planet Caravan, a psychedelic rock classic.

Black Sabbath : Paranoid,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. What can I say about Paranoid that hasn't been said over and over by so many before me? It's a great album, possibly the best album made by Black Sabbath of the original line-up. I can honestly say that I've enjoyed listening to every single track and continue to enjoy this classic metal piece. It is Black Sabbath at its finest. Musically, Black Sabbath had definitely evolved somewhat from their title album. The production quality is a little lacking, but that's to be expected from 70s music.
