Rock & Roll High School #2: Black Sabbath’s Paranoid
Tony assigned Dan homework to brush up on his rock and roll knowledge a few weeks ago: to listen to Sabbath’s Paranoid.
Dan’s review: less dark and scary and more poorly-informed political.
Dan has a few other qualms, mostly lyric-related, including how Ozzie Osbourne rhymed “masses” with “masses”. Tony maintains the entire time that Sabbath is not about the lyrics. But it’s not all qualms! Hear them discuss what is and isn’t great about this iconic album.
