4 is the fourth studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, released in September 1972. It was the first album by Black Sabbath not produced by Rodger Bain; guitarist Tony Iommi assumed production duties. Patrick Meehan, the band's then-manager, was listed as co-producer, though his actual involvement in the album's production was minimal. In June 1972, Black Sabbath began work on their fourth album at the Record Plant studios in Los Angeles.

Master of Reality is the third studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath, released on 21 July 1971. It is widely regarded as the foundation of doom metal, stoner rock, and sludge metal. It was certified double platinum after having sold over 2 million copies. Master of Reality was Black Sabbath's first and only top 10 album in the US until 13, forty-two years later.

Black Sabbath - Master Of Reality (1971).

Best Black Sabbath album to have ever been recorded! Best lineup of Black Sabbath, by far: Ozzy Osbourne - vocals Tony Iommi - guitar Geezer Butler - bass Bill Ward - drums. Come back to Sabbath, Bill! We all miss you! Heaven and Hell was good, Master of Reality was good and so was Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. But none of them can compare to Paranoid. 1 Heaven and hell 2 master of reality 3 black Sabbath 4 Sabbath bloody Sabbath 5 vol4 6 sabotage 7 technical ecstasy 8 born again 9 mob rules 10 Dehumanizer 11 headless Cross 12 tyr 13 13 14 never say die 15 Cross purposes. Black Sabbath’s masterpiece is Master of Reality. The 1st album that Tony Iommi detuned his guitar on to give that classic Sabbath sound. While Paranoid might have more recognizable hits, Master of Reality is better start to finish.

But Black Sabbath took a nose dive with Vol. 4. After a record like Master of Reality, I'm not quite sure how it's possible that a band could sound so utterly uninspired. Sabbath did it, however, and thanks to several shortcomings managed to release one of their worst albums – with or without Ozzy. Black Sabbath's biggest strength is and, save for perhaps the Dio-era albums where Ronnie James Dio generally steals the show, always has been Tony Iommi's guitar work. However, Mr. Iommi's licks and riffs were never exciting because they were fast or technical.

4 is the point in Black Sabbath's career where the band's legendary drug consumption really starts to make itself felt. And it isn't just in the lyrics, most of which are about the blurry line between reality and illusion. Vol. 4 has all the messiness of a heavy metal Exile on Main S. and if it lacks that album's overall diversity, it does find Sabbath at their most musically varied, pushing to experiment amidst the drug-addled murk  . The effectively concise "Tomorrow's Dream" has a chorus that could almost be called radio-ready, were it not for the fact that it only appears once in the entire song.

About Master of Reality. Black Sabbath’s third studio album, released in July 1971, was pivotal in cementing the band’s reputation and eventually went double platinum. It is a foundational album in the history of popular music, seen as one of the original progenitors of the genres doom, sludge, and stoner metal.
