Master of Reality both extends and modifies the trends on Paranoid. It has fewer songs, if you discount the two short instrumental interludes, but it is not that the songs are longer than the first record - the album is shorter. The sound, with a couple of exceptions, has evolved little if at all. The thick, plodding, almost arrhythmic steel wool curtains of sound the group is celebrated and reviled for only appear in their classical state of excruciating slowness on two tracks, Sweet Leaf and Lord of This World, and both break into driving jams that are well worth the wait. The real question is whether Black Sabbath can grow and evolve, as a band like the MC5 has, so that there is a bit more variation in their sound from album to album. And that’s a question this group hasn’t answered yet. In This Article: Black Sabbath, Neil Young, Ozzy Osbourne.

Master of Reality was Black Sabbath's third album in just over one year. Despite this relative lack of time off, Black Sabbath displays no signs of letting up. The album contains several of Black Sabbath's classic tracks, with songs such as Children of the Grave and Sweet Leaf being favourites among the band's celebrated catalogue. It's through these classic songs that Black Sabbath introduced yet another change in their music. Despite not radically switching up their formula, the newly down tuned guitars and bass guitars opened new possibilities for the band.

Also their first album to feature the heavier new sound created by dropping the tuning three semi-tones below the standard E, thus creating the premise for what would become known as the stoner rock sound.
