Background: Released in 1975, Sabotage was the sixth studio album by Black Sabbath and the final album of what is regarded as their classic “First Six.”

The album reached #7 on the UK charts and #28 in the U.S., where it was certified gold. gave Sabotage a 4 1/2 star review:

Sabotage is the final release of Black Sabbath’s legendary First Six, and it’s also the least celebrated of the bunch, though most die-hard fans would consider it criminally underrated. The band continues further down the proto-prog metal road of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, and this time around, the synthesizers feel more organically integrated into the arrangements. What’s more, the song structures generally feel less conventional and more challenging. …Yes, there were technically two more albums, but for the non-obsessive, the story of Osbourne-era Sabbath effectively ends here.
