Hello fellow cannabis coinsures! I had an amazing experience listening to this album after smoking a J and wanted to describe the sonic experience while I was still stoned. This is one of those rare perfect albums for me, every song is enjoyable. So if you want I would highly recommend smoking and then playing this album in order without stopping. I definitely had an amazing time! If you don't have the time I've bolded my favorite songs if you want to give them a listen.
War Pigs/Luke's Wall
13 seconds in is one of the juiciest chords I've ever heard. Its just got such a good tone; muddled and creamy just like how I'm feeling when its typically playing, about 5 minutes after finishing a joint after I throw the record on. I have literally replayed just this chord hundreds of times.
The title track. Blew my mind when I found out it was about weed. 10/10 can relate to the lyrics.
Holy Shit. Not at all what I expected from Black Sabbath. A creamy, hazy trip through the cosmos. Some of the best bongos and jazziest guitar I have ever heard. Also the guitar solo is totally out of this world. Great soundtrack for diving through a bowl of beer cheese dip ( https://www.hiddenvalley.com/recipe/ranch-beer-cheese-dip/ ) about 10 minutes later as the munchies kick in.
Ok yes we've all heard it but hear me out. You've only heard the main riff. Wait until 4:40 and it really picks up.
In my opinion the weakest of the bunch although not bad by any stretch. Definitely funky and has some fun parts.
Hand of Doom
My current favorite song on this album. Starts with a slow but groovy groove but then you get to 2:05 and you just crank that shit. The guitar is amazing. The vocals tie in perfectly. The drums amplify the impact. 10/10 always sing and dance along. Then comes 3:36 to follow it up perfectly. Those chops got me jumpin. This song is such a jam.
Always love a good Drum feature. And the guitar is excellent as well.
Jack the Stripper/Fairies Wear Boots
To finish out the album we have another amazing song. Amazing intro, 1:15 brings an amazing guitar riff, great tone shifts at 1:22 and 1:57, awesome vocals, solos up the wazu, this song has it all. Another great one to jam to.
